HARPOON To Release Deception Among Birds October 25th via Seventh Rule Recordings
Chicago grinders HARPOON entered Bricktop Recording in June of this year to record their sophomore record Deception Among Birds. Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Millions, Black September), who recorded the band's first first full-length Double Gnarly /Triple Suicide (Released on Interloper), was brought back to handle engineering duties. Deception Among Birds will be released on October 25th through Seventh Void Recordings.

Deception Among Birds
The guitar performance within HARPOON is delivered with a fluidity not often heard from bands associated with the terms "grind" or "powerviolence". Make no mistake - there's nothing 'soft' about this pile driving onslaught - you can simply sense the ease of execution in Dean Costello's playing. He isn't new to this. In addition to Costello, HARPOON singer Toney Vast-Binder has been reunited with bass player D.J. Barraca (Lair of the Minotaur). There's enough metal pedigree here to pique the interest of even the most skeptical metal maven (7000 Dying Rats, Lair Of The Minotaur, Gun Kata, and on and on). Deception Among Birds veers slightly from the premise of the first full-length (Double Gnarly / Triple Suicide released on Interloper) in that it takes some time to stop and smell the corpses. There are exercises in dronery that re-oxygenate the listener just enough to spear them with another sharpened assault from the part-man, part-machine, all-shredding HARPOON.
