Harpoon-Deception Among Birds
Seventh Rule Recordings
Chicago, Illinois grinders Harpoon offer us their sophomore record, Deception Among Birds. Andy Nelson, who recorded the band's first first full-length, Double Gnarly /Triple Suicide was brought back to handle engineering duties once again. The album finds guitarist/drum programmer Dean Costello (Crazy Stallions), singer Toney Vast-Binder (7000 Dying Rats, Gun Kata) and bass player D.J. Barraca (Lair of the Minotaur) in a very metal mood. There's still enough grind to go around on Deception Among Birds it's simply that thrash metal sure seems to be on Harpoon's mind. Not pretty thrash metal or anything. No, this is ugly and raw thrash in matching with Harpoon's overall view of the world. Not for the faint of heart.
