Deified are a metal band from Merseyside, they formed in late 2013. Their music is dark, angry, philosophical and down right nihilistic, reflecting on some of the worst parts of today’s status quo. They target key political figures, nuclear annihilation, conscious degradation and even the things that have been happening in their own lives. Deified are here to infect our world with their sound, and their passion for brutality.
The razor-sharp metal five piece have dug deep and produced their most creative studio effort to date - 'Anthrobscene'
A time capsule discussing the modern era; ‘Anthrobscene’ doesn’t hold back with its commentary on social media, the digital revolution, mental health, climate change, politics, and more. The safety is most definitely off with this visceral EP.
‘Anthrobscene’ is a potent and powerful display of metal, as the Bloodstock M2TM 2015 winners (Merseyside) deliver their best performance to date. With powerful production, mixing, and mastering courtesy of Deified’s guitarist Matthew Pike (MSc), this is a contender for British Metal EP of 2020.

‘Anthrobscene’ means a number of things to us. But at its core, it’s an attempt to get people talking about certain issues that surround us everyday and how these issues affect us (or will affect us), rather than just ignoring them and leaving future generations with the burden of our ignorance. It’s a call to arms and wants to encourage people to believe in a more conscious world. We can be better!
This concept mini-album has an overiding theme, but that theme overarches into the many issues that surround us in the current climate and how they affect us all. From governmental to technological issues, each song vents our own and others frustration with a world that everyday seems increasingly self destructive, underhanded and untruthful.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
