Chains of Delusion

Rated 3.2/5 (64%) (5 Votes)

If you just looked at the Priest-inspired artwork for Deceptor's Chains of Delusion EP, you'd likely assume you were in for some twin guitar Heavy/Power Metal. In actuality this, British trio plays a thrashy Heavy Metal with some U.S. Metal influences. The two spoken word pieces ("Transmission I" and "Transmission II") speak of a future where machines dominate mankind, much like Priest's "Metal Gods." The songs feature decent, if unremarkable, riffs played with a lot of energy. The vocals are 80s Thrash; more shouted than sung and with some "balls-in-a-vice" screams. The vocals are enthusiastic but occasionally off key, which sucks because they hold back, some of the better tracks like "Walking Dust," which stands out for its creative time changes. Not groundbreaking but definitely solid and with a little fine tuning, Deceptor could be a band to watch.
