Ex. Members of Megadeth debut with new band Asher July 24, 2015 News “Throwback”, the first video from Act of Defiance the band featuring former Megadeth members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar). The song is taken from Act Of Defiance debut album, “Birth And The Burial”, which will be released on August 21 via Metal Blade Records. In a time of endless sub-genre classifications being thrown at bands Act Of Defiance cut to the quick, offering 100% in-your-face, uncompromising metal. “If you invited fans of all kinds of metal – from thrash to Scandinavian metal to modern American metal – and had them all in a mosh pit, Act Of Defiance would be their soundtrack,” asserts guitarist Chris Broderick. With a hefty resumé that chronicles time spent riffing and shredding in Jag Panzer, Nevermore, and a seven-year stint in Megadeth, his pedigree speaks for itself. Furthermore, joined by powerhouse drummer – and fellow Megadeth alumnus – Shawn Drover, bassist Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall/Times Of Grace) and vocalist Henry Derek (Scar The Martyr) the band are a truly formidable metallic behemoth, and their debut album, Birth And The Burial, is ten tracks of armor-plated, state of the art heaviness.
