logo for UK rock band By Definition

Brighton-based band supplying heavyweight grooves

BY DEFINITION: Hard-hitting, beer-swilling, good time riffage for your earholes.

"If you like straight ahead, Black Label Society styled, whiskey soaked, dirty rock then By Definition could well be a band to check out." ~rock sound

"The band instantly snap your neck back with their Clutch meets Down style of blues, groove and heaviness." ~uberrock

"They had come to give some very hard lessons on the benefits of blues based, groove heavy, slow and steady heavy rock. It was slow, it was steady, it was raunchy, and it was delivered with the restraint of a grizzly bear." ~raggedymusic

"My expectations were high and were very well met… By Definition wore Southern influences on their sleeve as well as Stoner Metal. Their cool-as-shit front man acts as a great host for the audience." ~underground reviews

"The meaty riffs have plenty of bounce and the grizzly vocal lines are catchy as hell." ~rocknreelreviews

By Definition live on stage at Breakout Festival 2015
