Formed in 2008, DERAILED hail from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The band consists of songwriter/guitarist DEAN BOLAND, formerly of Random Damage(Mascot Records) vocalist JOHNIE SINCLAIR, drummer TERRY CORNELSON and bassist GREG KRISTIANSON. The band had been in search of a 2nd guitarist for some time and CARLOS CRUZ, formerly of Silent Poetry(Guatemala) searched them out, more than fulfilling the job. Band influences include Metallica, Megadeth & Iron Maiden to name a few.
DERAILED’s music style is reminiscent of their pioneer heros… heavy crunchy guitars, a driving bottom end & aggressive drum fills. This amalgamation captures the hard rock/metal sound of their peers, but with a cutting edge approach. Lyrical content deals with everyday life, spanning topics of dreams, hardship, reality & war, blended into melodic fist pumping energy.
The bands debut CD “Judgment Day” (2010) was mixed in Vancouver, BC by Vic
Levak at HUSH SOUND, and received strong positive reviews across the globe. The new album "Underground" has already created a massive buzz in their local market, a conceptual CD much more aggressive & progressive than its predecessor. "Underground" was mixed by Sacha Laskow(Divinity), and was released March 22nd, 2014.
