Interview with Act of Defiance

Recently M.T. Radio had the opportunity to catch up with both Henry Derek-lead singer and the awesome likes of Chris Broderick – guitarist from the metal band  ‘Act of Defiance’ before their performance at the The Complex in Glendale, Ca. (Due to time constrictions, we were unable to stay and catch their live performance). Chris and Henry were both kind enough to take time out and discuss with Maximum Threshold Radio about their current tour cycle, new album in the works, as well what the future may ultimately holds for the band before they took the stage.

For those not familiar with AOD, the metal supergroup from the Los Angeles, Ca. area was formed in 2014 by Broderick and drummer, Shawn Drover both of Megadeth fame who resigned from the band on the same day.  Joining them was vocalist Henry Derek (Scar the Martyr fame) and bassist Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall guitarist) who came in to man the bass for the band.

About the Author

Love music! Being around it, watching it, sometimes even playing it since I was a little Trouble-Maker growing up in the Orange County California Punk Scene. I was that one kid who would scale walls and fences just to get a glimpse in side venues to see big bands like Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, Van Halen ,Black Flag, etc, etc. My past job's has taking me to many cool places. I worked as a PR Asst that has helped with actors & actresses. I have also helped a few bands with their bookings, promos and some management opportunities. For me, music has always been my drug even when I found myself caught up in the drug scene here in the Los Angeles area where I now call home. Today I'm proud to say I've been clean & sober from drug use since 2000. Rock is what I'm mostly into! "Shit that moves you, Shit that has heart and soul." Says the late great Dimebag. I'm currently working as a west coast rep for the radio program Maximum Threshold Radio @ ( You can find me @ where you can see my many journey's into the music scene. MTR: Show email: Email:
