Originally forged in the East Midlands of England and now established in London, Dethonator are an exciting, four-piece Heavy Metal band. Starting out as teens in the summer of 2002, Dethonator have honed their craft over a decade and a half.
If Judas Priest define Heavy Metal, then Dethonator are Damascus Steel; metal forged true with myriad layers of influence drawn from the many stylistic paths explored by their forebears over the past half a century. After 2013’s full length album, ‘Return To Damnation’ and 2014’s E.P, ‘Monuments to Dead Gods’, both self releases, they reissued their self titled first album through Killer Metal Records, Germany, which was remixed and partially rerecorded by the current line-up. This eponymous release features many of their most popular songs to date, such as ‘Harbinger’, ‘Shadows’ and
‘In The Place of The Skull’.
After 3 years of writing and recording Dethonator are now set to release their latest album, with Pavement Entertainment Inc. A double album, Race Against The Sun: Part One is out in February 2019, with Part Two set to appear in early 2020.
Having earned a formidable reputation for their hi-octane, exhilarating live performances and their immediate, anthemic songs, Dethonator’s fan base has been steadily growing in the U.K. and Europe with many short tours completed and festival spots gained within the last decade.
