DEFECT DESIGNER have unleashed a “stellar” music video to promote their single ‘StarDust’ off of their recent full-length ‘Ageing Accelerator’ released through Sleaszy Rider Records this past July. The entirely instrumental track looms over the video, which allows viewers to trek the galaxy over guitar harmonies and shoegaze-esque drums. The video clocks in just under 3 minutes providing a symphonic piece paired with celestial imagery creating an incredible cosmic experience.
“It is always not easy to make a video for an instrumental song, so we wanted to make something very nice and not too complicated, with motion that fits the song’s pace. This is a melodic side of the band, slow and easy-listening.” comments vocalist.guitarist Dmitry Sukhinin.

“It’s an impressive effort, a quantum leap forward from their debut. The arrangements are diverse, and the musicianship is impeccable. They add progressive elements to the crushing death metal, giving it ample variety.” – Heavy Metal About.com
“Blazing, head-scrambling music”- No Clean Singing
“They are in my estimation one of the finest modern death metal acts, combining far too many influences to count into a formula that generates numerous deadly riffs alongside numerous unique, non-repeated segments per song.” – No Clean Singing
“The thrashing is amazing, the inventive solos are killer, and the melody teeters on insane from time to time. Go listen! It’s awesome.” – Yell! Magazine
” This is some modern death metal that isn’t too flashy, nor is it too linear. It’s a true compliment to the album to say that there are some interesting twists and turns throughout, yet everything feels cohesive. There’s some downright brutal moments (“Yellow Grimace”), some trippy moments (“I Remember You Dead”), and just about everything in between. Not to mention the energetic and memorable (hate to say ‘melodic’ here) riffing that works as one of the true highlights of Ageing Accelerator. An intriguing album” – DeadRhetoric
“When it comes to pure, unadulterated death metal, this disk is about as good as it gets. Tracks like “Corpsewatcher”, “Yellow Grimace” and “The Terrible” are a complete metal assault on the ears. If you like your death metal brutal with a side of chaotic musicianship, this release is definitely for you.” – Broken Neck Radio
“a scathing hellstorm of twisted fury on.” – Has It Leaked
“Siberia is known as a large remote expanse of the earth that is unforgivably cold. Even among this cold landscape, there can be hard metal with a brutal tone ” – Seymour Duncan
