5.0 out of 5 stars Classic German Metal From the 80's March 2, 2007
By VinMark
Format:Audio CD
This is a great example of how metal evolved differently overseas as opposed to the US brand of 80's metal. It has a good mix of all the elements that make metal an interesting form of music. Great guitar work -- but nothing like the all-out shredder guitarists that were so common at the time. The vocals weren't overly polished nor did they reach the realm of death metal. Solid rhythms from the bassist and drummer. Everything in proportion to make the CD a great listen. This band didn't buy into all of the stereotypes and that has kept this album from seeming too dated.

Originally released in 1988, Deception Ignored was the third album from German thrash metal band Deathrow. The band had released a pair of solid albums at that point, but it wasn't until they enlisted Uwe Osterlehner as lead guitarist that they really distinguished themselves. Osterlehner was both extraordinarily talented and determined to push Deathrow to see how far they could progress. The result is the perfect intersection of thrash and progressive metal.

With Deception Ignored, Deathrow went from your basic thrash metal band to something that sounded like Coroner and Watchtower's bastard offspring. Osterlehner's frenetic, almost mathematical guitar work is way out front, driving each song and practically daring the rest of the band to keep up, and to their credit they do just that. For all the technicality on display, the band - especially drummer Markus Hahn and bassist Milo - keep that steady thrashing backbone that keeps heads banging no matter how complex the songs may get. And Milo's vocals, which went from midrange to quite high, were the perfect accompaniment to the chaotic song structures.

With just seven songs on the album (eight if you count the bonus track "Beuracrazy"), there's not much filler on Deception Ignored. It does have its standout songs though, like opening number "Events in Concealment" and the lengthy, mind melting (especially the lyrics) "Narcotic." It's the 8+ minute instrumental "Triocton" that really showcases just how ahead of the curve Deathrow was though. Even the straightforward 3-minute thrasher "N.L.Y.H." has some dazzling solos.

For technical thrash metal fans, Deception Ignored is about as good as it gets. It's just a shame that more people didn't get a chance to hear it the first time around.
