DEFECTO on the web:
POWER PROG has the honor to announce the signing of one of the
greatest hopes when it comes to Scandinavian progressive metal,
stunning Danish quartet DEFECTO. The first common goal is the
release of their first longplayer "Excluded" at April 29, 2016 as Audio-
CD, download card, as digital download and as stream exclusively via
POWER PROG's direct sales channels. The official worldwide release
follows at May 20, 2016

DEFECTO is an aspiring Danish metal band hailing from the outskirts
of Copenhagen. They have written on their flags to create powerful and
sophisticated progressive music without sacrificing a unique
songwriting or melodies, having band members that each play with
superior musical and technical abilities. It's the mixture: DEFECTO
believes in hard-hitting songs combined with earwig-like catchy
melodies while still paving the way for some seriously melting solos,
exalted instrumental performances, symphonic elements, growling
vocal use and an expressive personality.

DEFECTO's self-titled debut-EP, released in 2012, showcased a more than ambitious band and was highly
