Southampton Metalcore outfit Deference are out to cause havoc with their high-energy, intense sound that’ll pummel your ear drums and increase your heart rate. Drawing influence from an array of metal and hardcore acts such as Parkway Drive and While She Sleeps, Deference are all about creating the meatiest of breakdowns, the most erratic of riffs and sharp vocals with extra bite.
Having formed in 2014, the quintet set about recording their debut EP ‘XXXVII‘ at Envy Studios and have since continued to develop their sound and deliver it to crowds across the south coast, ensuring that their live performance matches the adrenaline felt within their music.
Notching up some already impressive live shows, alongside Palm Reader, Lock & Key, Falling With Style and fellow Southampton metallers Our Hollow Our Home, Deference are already making a name for themselves as one of the hottest newcomers in the metal scene right now.
