II (Scarlet Records)
release date: 2/17/2014
by Mike Delano
Pure opening-act mediocrity from the UK. Def-Con-One is a throwback to scores of second stage Ozzfest bands from the late '90s–early '00s, many of whom were charming in their ability to aggressively move a crowd without any particularly inspiring material. Pale shades of System of a Down and Slipknot here on "Soul Possessed," but somehow the song still kind of works, maybe owing to the singer's Warrel Dane similarities.
This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
