Hailing from Montreal, Derelict strives to unite as many aspects of metal as possible into one commanding package. Although comparisons to various death and thrash metal bands have arisen, it is obvious upon the first listen that Derelict incorporates the brutal and progressive elements of the Quebec scene with listenable structures and melody, resulting in an unforgiving yet accessible package.
Since Derelict started gigging in May 2006, they have racked up an impressive catalogue of shows, including support for major acts such as Ion Dissonance (Century Media), Threat Signal (Nuclear Blast), The Agonist (Century Media), 3 Mile Scream (Corporate Punishment), Camilla Rhodes (Galy Records), Nefastus Dies (SOAR), Endast (Big Metal), Warmachine (Nightmare Records), and Korpius (Cryogenic Records). They were also part of the 2007and 2008 editions of Moshcore , which features many of the top bands in the Montreal scene, and is an important fund raising event for the Canadian Cancer Society.
Having independently produced and released their first full-length album, 'Ideological Prey', and follow-up demo ‘Carry the Flame’, Derelict has been tirelessly seeking promotion and distribution avenues to get themselves heard. And be it through their powerful and compelling live shows, or through radio play on stations such as CHOM 97.7 FM's "The Metal File", CFMB 1280AM, CINQ 102.3FM Montreal Music Scene's - "AROUND TOWN", and CKUT 90.3 "Sounds of Steel", the word is getting around that Derelict is a force to be reckoned with.
As Derelict continues with a tireless regimen of live performances and self-promotion, they are prepared to record their professional debut in early 2008. Derelict are ready to surpass all expectations and leave their audience with gaping mouths and ringing ears.
