Montreal based deathcore pioneers Despised Icon consists of Alex Erian, Steve Marois, Eric Jarrin, Ben Landreville, Sebastien Piche, Alex Pelletier, and Yannick St-Amand.
The group formed back in 2002, and released ‘Consumed By Your Poison’ the same year. At first, there was little intersection between the sounds of classic death metal and hardcore, but Despised Icon were one of the first bands to fully embrace the signatures of the traditional death metal formula combined with a relentless embrace of breakdowns, as part of an emerging new sound. As such, Despised Icon have had a massive influence on the genre.
Throughout their career, Despised Icon steadily built a following through touring with the likes of Cryptopsy, Suffocation, Immolation, Deicide, Morbid Angel, Behemoth, Hatebreed and Napalm Death.
After their debut, they released 'The Healing Process' in 2005, 'The Ills of Modern Man' in 2007, and 'Day of Mourning' in 2009, which many fans thought would be their last.
However, Despised Icon returned last year with their latest album, ‘Beast’; a vicious commentary on the state of the world and the state of music itself. The band toured the album extensively across several US tours, and no they head over the pond to hit the UK in February as part of a wider European tour in February 2018.
