"The new record has a street level sound that is a throwback to the burgeoning thrash metal movement from the mid 80's with a more modern day production value. To me thrash metal is about honesty, integrity and just an overall street level approach to things...lyrically its about many of the negative aspects in life such as war, addiction, tyranny, etc" says Matt Hanchuck.
Wreck-Defy began in 2016 when Matt Hanchuck got together with his friend Justin Steer who agreed to do the vocals on the debut record Fragments of Anger. They brought in Shawn Droverfrom Megadeth to play all the drums on the first album...combining that with the fact that his brother Glen...also ex Megadeth alumni agreed to mix and master the album which gave it some notoriety so to speak...credibility if you will.
The current line up of the band is Matt Hanchuck on guitar, Aaron Randall ex Annihilator on vocals and Greg Christian formerly of Testament on Bass. For the album they used Dave O'Nealas a studio session drummer...but moving forward they've been able to recruit the amazing Alex Marquez from Demolition Hammer and Solstice for future tours and shows.
The band is available for interviews and the record is available for review!
