Detherous Champions Invincible Thrash Metal on “Hacked to Death”


Detherous is evidently a made-up word which is amazing because it sounds like it should be real, some archaic adjective nobody uses anymore but will still clear your Scrabble rack. Fortunately, the creativity of the band Detherous is not limited to amateur lexicography. The group was formed in 2014 when vocalist/guitarist Damon MacDonald was still in high school; the current line-up, rounded out by guitarist Dylan Spicer, drummer Dimitri La Rose, and bassist Kamen Proudfoot, attracted the attention of Redefining Darkness Records thanks to a self-released EP Live at Distortion and a ton of Canadian shows which included the Wacken Metal Battle 2018 in their hometown of Calgary, and the tenth annual Armstrong Metalfest alongside the likes of Archspire and Kataklysm.

Their debut album Hacked to Death will not be released until August 16th; however, you don’t have to wait that long. We are proud to premiere the new album’s title track to celebrate a Canadian tour that kicks off this Friday in Regina at Cloud 9 Live.

“Hacked to Death” makes thrash metal dirty again. Detherous belies their tender years with a ripping vortex of bludgeoning speed. Although it’s evident that the band was weaned on the cornerstones of the 1980s underground – Slayer’s dramatic apocalyptic time-changes and early Sepultura’s punk-like intensity are evident – they dig deeper and it shows. You can hear the intensity of Demolition Hammer and the grandeur of Asphyx with the hint of creeping death in MacDonald’s sooty grunt.

We also have a bonus drum playthrough video for “Hacked to Death” below for your enjoyment.
