By Definition-"Warrior" (Single)

Clever Name Records

It's something to beyond, but I am only going to be 41 this coming July and even if I was to spent every waking moment of the rest of my days here on Earth doing nothing but exploring new metal I'm still not sure I could even skim the surface of what is out there. Case in point By Definition. Even with a solid back catalog "Warrior" is the first I've heard of this five-piece outfit which, having already played alongside such heavy hitters as Black Label Society and Black Stone Cherry, has been "The Hardest Working Band in Brighton". That's no fault of their own just as it is no fault of mine. There is simply far too much good heavy metal to discover on one's own which is why I am so thankful to have friends, family and cool people like Lizzie from Quite Great PR pointing me in the right direction where smashing good heavy metal is concerned! And with this lot it is indeed a smashing good time as we are going to be talking about a bunch of hard & heavy musicians which not only draw from the likes of Clutch, the Deftones and Down, but isn't afraid to spice things up by adding everything from hip hop to electronic music! Of course that's in the "overall grand scheme of things" as "Warrior" (punctuated by the lead vocals of one Si Strechler!) is FIST IN THE AIR hard rock which burned a hole through my speakers! "Warrior", which comes off the group's upcoming new album, "The Concerns of Mortal Man" (due for release on 5/26/14), finds By Definition (active since 2007) delivering a lesson in the fine art of "Bring it all or bring nothing at all!" heavy rock with crushing riffs serving as the proverbial cherry on top of this gritty single! Recorded at Black Wookie Studios and mastered by Alan Douches (Motörhead, The Defiled, Cannibal Corpse, Black Dahlia Murder) at West West Side Music, "Warrior" ( is a hell of a number from By Definition making me quit intrigued by the potential of "The Concerns of Mortal Man"! You can find out more about these UK hard rockers at their Facebook page below and be sure to check back here at Heavy Metal Time Machine as I hope to set up an interview with this bunch in the upcoming days!
