Def-Con-One is a four-piece British band, and II, as the title indicates, is their sophomore release. The band plays an aggressive form of Thrash more along the lines of Pantera, with a wall of sound including aggressive guitar riffs and gut-pounding bass lines and drum beats. However, even amid the hostility, Def-Con-One blends in some well-crafted vocals which are shouted most times, but still blend in ample amounts of melody. The end product is a wonderfully aggressive album with lyrical patterns that are surprisingly catchy and unique. If you like your Metal hard-edged, then this II album will rock your world.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
