Reviewer: Greg Watson
In-Defilade have one mission with 'Elude' and that is to terrify, incinerate, and force you to submit to the brutal assault that they provide on the album. The blast beats and guitars on this album stop at nothing short of pounding you down into a pulpy mass of liquid, bone powder, and blood. The vocals strive to eviscerate you from head to toe and are incredibly venomous, poisoned, and surgical. If that weren't enough, the solos throughout the album flay the skin from your body by the pound only to replace it and sheer it right off again. In-Defilade have delivered an album that is hard pressed to find its equal in 2017.
