36 Crazyfists are a metalcore/nu metal band from Anchorage, Alaska. Their sound is characterised by unique vocals and intelligent songwriting.

They were originally signed by Roadrunner Records. In 2006 they signed to the DRT Entertainment label for American distribution of “Rest Inside The Flames”, as Roadrunner US kept pushing the release date back. They remained on Roadrunner UK label, where they received good support in Europe. In July of 2007, the band signed to Ferret Records on a wordwide deal.

The band formed in December 1994 in Anchorage, Alaska. Initally playing Rapcore, their major label debut Bitterness the Star took the band in their current Metalcore direction. 36CF consists of four members, Brock Lindow (vocals), Steve Holt (guitar), Brett Makowski (bass) and Thomas Noonan (drums). After the release of their debut album Bitterness the Star in 2002, they began to tour the US with bands including Candiria, God Forbid, Chimaira, Diecast, and Hotwire.

After their US tour they went to Europe to begin the European Road Rage tour with Killswitch Engage and Five Pointe O. When this tour was over, the band took time off to write new material for their second album ‘A Snow Capped Romance’ which was released in 2004 and produced by James Wisner, who worked with Dashboard Confessional and Further Seems Forever.

The Band’s name comes from an old kung-fu movie featuring Jackie Chan. The title of the movie is called “Jackie Chan and the 36 Crazy Fists”.

Their album ‘Rest Inside The Flames’ Includes Jonah Jenkins of miltown, and Howard Jones and Tom Gomes of Killswitch Engage.


The Defiled are a 5-piece London based metal band, mixing groove-laden hardcore metal with furious electronics. Described by Kerrang! as “an explosive mangle of Manson stagecraft and middle finger metal” the band have built a fierce fanbase following support slots with bands such as Murderdolls, The 69 Eyes and Dry Kill Logic, culminating in a performance at Bloodstock Open Air 2008. They were also the opening act on the 2010 Jagermeister Music Tour along with Exit Ten and Sylosis .

These gigs have earned the band a reputation for causing chaos at their gigs, with band members, instruments and spectators in the audience all receiving a battering whenever the band plays live. With a series of sought-after demos trading between fans, the band released their first EP in 2009, and released their full album ‘Grave Times’ for free In January with Metal Hammer,

The Deluxe version of the album plus a bonus disk, which included the 1888 ReWorks EPand 2 music videos, was released on 14th February 2011.

The Defiled are headlining the Jagermeister stage at Sonisphere in July 2011 and the main stage at Bloodstock Open Air in August 2011.

2011 has also seen them nominated for the Best New British Band award in the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards.
