Verbal Deception

Driven from the forces of the unknow. From the shadows of dee. From the depths of the ocean’s floo. Never woken from its slee. Scavengers arise from the bowels belo.

It was in a basement where the idea for a fresh sound in metal first crept into the twisted minds of Walt Fleming, Kresho Klarich and Taylor Pierce. Walt was experimenting with various keyboard patches when he stumbled upon the Bandoneón sound, while in the background Kresho manically played his Flying V.

Driven from the forces of the unknow. From the shadows of dee. From the depths of the ocean’s floo. Never woken from its slee. Scavengers arise from the bowels belo.

It was in a basement where the idea for a fresh sound in metal first crept into the twisted minds of Walt Fleming, Kresho Klarich and Taylor Pierce. Walt was experimenting with various keyboard patches when he stumbled upon the Bandoneón sound, while in the background Kresho manically played his Flying V. Taylor, the drummer at the time laughed, saying it sounded like pirate metal. They wrote their one of their first tunes "Pirate Attack" around that theme, and then joined as a trio to form Verbal Deception. Together they would combine Celtic and gypsy melodies with power and prog metal ferocity to bring unto this world the cryptic beast of piracy. Yet still something was missing.

Past times slowly slip from my min. My thoughts become those frozen in tim. Remember your forgotten pas. From ages dea. In the halls of the los. Our lives unthrea.

Treading the waters would prove extremely difficult for the three, with Taylor living in another city. Johnny Iocca joined the group for a year and then Jordon Bourgeault, a captain Morgan-esque figure, who fit the band like a glove, replaced him. A raging fury of percussion now filled every venue they played. Bass virtuoso Terry Baldwin later joined the band. Now, they had everything they needed, Walt’s menacing melodies, Kresho’s speed metal guitar riffs, Jordon’s twisted sense of timing and Terry's thundering low-end assault. Power, melody and percussion have fused to create a vicious new Pirate Metal sound.

Here I stan. Rum in han. Sea born scara. Not of this lan.

Like the real pirates of days gone by they are outcast from the bored imperialism of the music mainstream. Verbal Deception stands on its own, creating new sounds for anyone who dares to listen to their music. To those who are with Verbal Deception, we salute you! For those who choose to ignore the call of piracy, prepare to be quartered. « hide
