Montreal based Derelict have been added as direct support to Quebec metal legends Martyrâ€™s upcoming show February 14th, 2010 at Foufounes Ã‰lectriques in Montreal, Quebec. Derelict is currently touring in support of their recently released new album â€œUnspoken Wordsâ€, which was released by Year of the Sun Records.
“We couldn’t be happier about playing with Martyr! They are one of our main influences, in terms of songwriting, technicality, stage presence and their all around live show,â€ commented Derelictâ€™s Eric Burnet. â€œMartyr not only raised the bar for death metal bands in Quebec, but the Canadian metal scene as a whole. Simply put Martyr are musical masters, and playing with these guys will be an absolute career highlight for us thus far.”
Derelictâ€™s â€œUnspoken Wordsâ€ was recorded in the metal Mecca of Canada: Montreal, Quebec under the watchful eye of Cryptopsy guitarist Chris Donaldson (The Agonist, Cryptopsy). Their brand of metallic brutality and schizophrenic musical changes has drawn comparisons to Strapping Young Lad and the legendary Death. Derelictâ€™s video for the track â€œMacheteâ€ can be viewed online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93oc3CbRuMA.
Martyr’s intricate and aggressive Technical Metal style is built on complex structures which allies a multitude of emotions from many different musical approaches. The music is not limited to the conventions of traditional metal music, the band striving to push those limits to create a more open-minded concept. The group’s “Havoc In Quebec City” live DVD was mixed and mastered by Pierre RÃ©millard (The End, Cryptopsy) and released on Galy Records. The group’s DVD can be purchased online at www.myspace.com/martyrcanada
