Harpoon Gearing Up To Enter The Studio And Record "Deception Among Birds"

Harpoon will enter Bricktop Recording this coming June to record the band's sophomore record "Deception Among Birds." Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Millions, Black September) will once again be handling the engineering duties after recording the band's first first full-length "Double Gnarly / Triple Suicide" (Released on Interloper). A press release from the band also stated:

"It's 2011 and Harpoon still refuse to sell out and get some fallable human to compliment their trusty drum machine. Their personnel is minimal... the riffs are maximum.

"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."

"Deception Among Birds" is slated for release through Seventh Rule in September on analog and digital formats. Tour dates will be announced soon, including a proper set of West Coast shows leading up to the release. A demo version of the forthcoming album track "To The Tall Trees" has been posted online and can be heard in the player below.
