Detritus were a little known thrash metal band from Bristol, England. Detritus was a thrash metal Christian band which put out only 2 albums: Perpetual Defiance and If but for one. Following the traces of fellowmen Seventh Angel they took a lot of influences from Xentrix, Sodom, Metallica, Megadeth, etc. And on this, their debut album, there is no mistake about where these guys hails from. They have this unmistakable British sound, not unlike acts like Seventh Angel.
Many people love the sharp guitar tone that just oozes thrash! Marks voice is gritty and dirty, and fits well with the speedy music. But when he slows things down to sing in a cleaner voice it doesn’t sound that well. Every song on this CD is not good as they could have been. But those of them that are good are also very good! It’s a shame that so many bands in the Christian scene never got the acknowledgement they deserved. Detritus is but one of many Christian acts that could have gone so much farther with proper backing. ‘Perpetual Defiance’ sports album art by none other then Rodney Matthews, famous for album covers by Seventh Angel, Motherlode, Veni Domine, Arena and Magnum, amongst others.
