Martyr Defiled have seethed under the bubbling cauldron of quality metal bands that the UK has produced over the last 5 years - and with ‘No Hope No Morality’, the boys have set the standard for infectious hooks, thunderous riffs and disgusting breaks. No Hope No Morality has been lovingly crafted, obsessively tinkered with and stripped down before being put back together into the 11 tracks of raw aggression tinged with sublime intricacy.

Pounding drums match stampeding guitars topped with gut-busting vocals, before either slipping into a fist pumping vocal hook or a breakdown so disgusting you’d feel dirty telling your parents about it. The songs are crafted individually, each with their own specific flavour that combines together to make the sum of the parts greater than the whole - an album written as an album, not as a collection of songs heaped together on a CD. Touring extensively for 7 years have given the band the type of fanbase most english hooligan firms would die for, selling out shows across the UK and mainland Europe and leaving a path of destruction in their wake.

Festival appearances have left pundits as fans, critics speechless and magazines running out of superlatives to put in their reviews. Merch-hoarding fans across the world are calling out for the MD Mafia to roll into their town, level their venue to the ground and leave them begging for more..

Reviews for No Hope No Morality: "A barn-storming, turbocharged, statement of intent." - Metal Hammer 8/10 "Anyone with ears with enjoy the musical violence on display" - Rock Sound 7/10 "One of the best UK Metal albums you'll hear this year" - Sunday Sport 26/30 Live Reviews: “Playing a brutal set of technical death metal with a hardcore punk edge, the Lincoln boys were tight, aggressive and brilliant” - The Sunday Mail, September 2012 “Martyr Defiled up the ante with an all-action display of death metal fury. Vocalist Matt Jones paces back and forth like a caged lion with a roar to match, and as his bandmates pummel us with granite-hewn riffs, submission has never felt so good” - Rocksound Magazine, June 2012 “They put their all into their performance, only for the audience (which makes the venue so packed that we had to leave through the bar and fight our way into the crowd) to give as much back in return, having one hell of a party” - Discovered Magazine, July 2012
