Defender

Defender's lone release was the City Ad Mortis EP, released in 1987 and considered a rare collectible to this day. Featuring an energetic, classic 80's metal style, the EP got good reviews and the band played live quite a bit over the next few years, but finally ran out of steam in 1990, calling it a day. A compilation was released in 2001, and the EP was re-released with bonus tracks in 2006.
