DECEPTION started out in 2012 by making the debut EP called “Break the silence”. It was released on March 9th 2013, and we were quite overwhelmed with the positive response and critics we received.
DECEPTION was formed during the process of making the “Break the silence”-EP. Peter (guitars), Markus (drums) and Fredrik (bass) started to jam some ideas at the rehearsal room and later hooked up with Daniel (singer) and Oscar (guitars).
In the writing process Peter and Fredrik found it easy to complement each others musical backgrounds and songwriting skills to create an original sound. When “Break the silence”-EP was done we still had a lot of material left. We decided to record yet another EP to really establish the DECEPTION-sound.
Our second EP, named “Altars of sin”, will be released april 5th 2014 through Big Balls Productions, and the very same night we´ll be performing live at Nöjesfabriken in our hometown. “Altars of sin” contains four songs, and we´re all eager to show our new material to the world. We´re also proud and happy to have a special guest performing on the “Altars of sin” EP. Anders Björler is known from two big Swedish pioneers in the genre of metal, “The Haunted” and “At the Gates”. Anders is playing the first of two killer solos in the song called “Our Damnation”.
In October 2014 Deception will travel overseas for a Mexico & US tour. We got the opportunity to do this tour via our management, and we are of course looking forward to it. The tour will contain approximately seven shows in twelve days covering Mexico City, Monterrey, Saltillo, Los Angeles and Anaheim.
A few words from others about our first EP “Break the silence”:
Rock Eyez Webzine – “Deception has risen to bring a new body of life to the music scene of Sweden.”
Skullbanger Media – “Deception have all the right ingredients to be that next big metal band.”
iloveundergroundbands – “Deception cones at a dreadful pace. The riffs are both powerful and melodic which makes the music both mosh- and headbangin´ friendly.”
Twoguysmetalreviews – “Their sound seems to be steadily becoming more precise and their execution is excellent”
We are truly grateful for the nice response of our music and humbled by the opportunity to share our music with the world. 2014 will be the real startup for Deception as we hit the stages. Meanwhile we keep on writing new music to evolve with time.
