Deface are Israeli Groove Death Metal band formed in 2001 at Netanya.
Former line-up: Michael Korotayev – vocal, guitar; Paul Mityanin – lead guitar; Vladimir Ladnyuk – bass; and Tim Razumovsky – drums.
The music was influenced by Sepultura, Metallica, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Slayer, but sounds more likely to Benediction, Entombed or Gorefest – some kind of Old School Death Metal with Groove and Hardcore influences.
In 2006, the band went onto European tour, as an opening act for Macabre and Jungle Rot.
In two years or so, the band started recording the album, which took ten long years.
The band have since experienced multiple line-up changes, with vocalist and guitarist Michael Korotayev being the only constant presence in the band through the years.
In 2014, Rising From The Ashes Tour started, including such important festivals as Metal Overload, Thrash Fest Israel and Tel-Aviv Alternative Fest. The tour ended with opening for mighty Entombed AD.
In 2017, Deface reaped Israel again with Blatant Denial Tour, which ended at Winter Metal Storm 2017 Fest.
In 2019, the debut album finally been recorded and mixed in AG Studio. It was released by Metal Scrap Records.DEFACE band photo big
