Decibel Magazine has partnered with Unspeakable Axe Records for the premiere of ‘Misconception,’ the forthcoming debut album from Chilean Thrashers Critical Defiance.

Thrash or be thrashed! Critical Defiance will release ‘Misconception’ February 8 on Unspeakable Axe Records. Pre-order it at this location.

Critical Defiance goes straight for the jugular with their relentless and intricate brand of old-school thrash metal. Though spawned in the depths of Chile’s underground, Critical Defiance bear all the markings of a band that came straight from the 80s Bay Area scene.

Following two demos and a limited-edition split with Santiago’s Parkcrest, Critical Defiance signed with Unspeakable Axe Records for the release of ‘Misconception.’ This eight-track album is an aggressive assault of violent riffs, shredding, yet melodic leads and shouted group vocals.
