MAKE THEM SUFFER with silent Planet, Oceans Ate Alaska & Thornhill The Zoo, Brisbane Tuesday …
Lore–defined as “a body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group, typically passed from person to person by word of mouth.” To a degree, Lore is an apt title for the debut EP from Melbourne post-hardcore outfit, In Deception.
However, they deliver nothing traditional in this body of work. Instead, they’re bending the very boundaries of the genre they’ve chosen to be defined by to take the first steps toward something legendary.
The deep drones of bass and drums of GG literally tear Lore open, a track that serves as a step into an adventure with many twists and turns to be experienced. The purposefully sluggish static of the guitars spark attention, and spoken lyrics make waves in the fray. All up, In Deception are making an impressive statement from the outset, stepping into realms of nu-metal, metalcore, punk and straight up rock, a versatility that speaks volumes of In Deception’s capabilities.

These boys don’t disappoint as we course through the remaining four tracks. In Deception want you to soar with them on the elated melodies of Icarus, they want you to feel things in Airbourne, especially with the ripping angst heard in the pre-chorus lyrics. Lore is a wholly immersive experience and In Deception complete the offering with Father just as they began–strong.
In Deception are offering up an exceptionally strong debut release in Lore. On approaching this band you should be ready for one thing–though they may not realise it yet, these guys are not in any way restrained by one genre or label, and with great results.
STANDOUT TRACKS: GG, Airbourne, Icarus,
