If you haven’t been living under some sort of rock, then you’d know that the thrash revival is still going strong, and with such a large revival this can naturally lead to, well – a lot of junk.
But here we have Deceptor, a band who decides to set themselves apart from the hordes of thrash hopefuls. Deceptor are a melodic thrash band with a heavy overtone of speed metal and a peppering of NWOBHM, with a mild technical edge. This amalgamation lends itself to be a very unique concoction, and for 2012, this is some pretty fresh sounding thrash metal.
If you’re looking for brutality or over-the-top speed – you won’t find it here; but if you’re looking for sublime riffing, coherent song writing devoid of pointless worship and a breath of fresh air in a severely overpopulated scene, then you’ve come to the right place.
“To Know Infinity” will put a smile on any discerning thrasher’s face. This is the thinking man’s thrash. Expect varied song writing, catchy riffs, and a much needed breath of creativity in a scene that is quite frankly – stagnated beyond any reasonable level.
Once the thrash revival meets its inevitable demise, Deceptor will be one band that stands the test of time. Heed these words thrashers!
So scroll down, and click that black play button on the Soudcloud player and let Deceptor invade your thrashy soul!
About the Author
Anyway I'm one of the co-founders of Axis Of Metal, which I created out of a love for all things heavy. Admittedly my first foray into music wasn't so heavy. At twelve i developed a love for grunge music, which then lead to a love of classic rock, and punk. Then as I consumed almost every piece of music in said genres I needed something with a bit more intensity, and something more extreme. One day I was walking through the halls in my high school, and i heard music blasting out of someone's headphones, and it was exactly what I was looking for. So after I found out that it was Slayer's "Disciple" I went home that day, and listened to every song Slayer had ever released, and that's how it all started.
So that's my story, so why not go out and listen to me blabber on, on the podcast or go and read what the Axis Of Metal's writing team has to say. Axis of Metal is created by metal heads, for metal heads.
