Track: The Halo Effect – The Defiant One

Markus Esselmark

The Halo Effect have had a brilliant year with their debut album ‘Days Of The Lost’ hitting the charts all over Europe – #1 in Sweden, #3 in UK, #6 in Germany, Austria and Finland, and #8 in Switzerland.
An extensive European tour with Machine Head and Amon Amarth followed, as well as numerous festivals and headline shows. Fans are now eagerly waiting for the follow up to their debut album, but until then, the band have shared the video for ‘The Defiant One’ which has already become a staple in their live setlist for quite some time.

Mikael Stanne comments: 

“‘The Defiant One’ was recorded during the ‘Days of the Lost’ sessions and has been one of the songs we have played live last year. So in order to hold you over before we present you with what we have written and recorded for the next album here is ‘The Defiant One’. The video was shot at Pustervik, Gothenburg during our sold out tour of Sweden and it captures us in our hometown among some of our closest friends. Enjoy!”

An explosive track that has every right to be in the bands live set. A charging verse with Stanne’s superior growls and a melodic chorus filled with guitar wizardry from Niclas Engelin and Jesper Strömblad, one of the finest guitar duos in metal. It’s a track to pick up any crowd not that these guys need any help in doing that.
