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.

Way better than Nasty Savage's album Penetration Point, which is also pretty technical sounding and comparable to Deception Ignored in many ways. Incredibly underrated technical thrash masterpiece. It blows my mind to compare this to stuff coming out around the same time.

The sticker that came on my copy of the album says it all: “Classic German Thrash Metal for fans of Kreator, Coroner, Metallica.”

That’s exactly it folks. This is pure brutal old time thrash. Deception Ignored is the third full length album by Deathrow and holds the reputation of being their best. This is the only album by them that I own at this time, but upon sampling some of their other stuff I can attest that that belief is largely true. The sound produced on this album is more technical, focused, and skillful.

The most noticeable difference found on this album is that Milo’s vocals have changed from being a rough Mille Petrozza impression to a higher pitched singing style. I don’t dislike this, but it’s got to fall into the category of just average. But don’t worry, this isn’t debated by anyone. Deathrow knows their strength lies not in the vocals, but in their ability to compose devastating, slashing riffs that will have you bringing out the air guitar within seconds of pressing ‘play.’ In fact, they know this so well that they actually wrote an instrumental titled “Triocton” that is literally seven straight minutes of the guitarists having what can only be described as a ‘best riff’ competition.

Apart from the vocal style the main change made for this album was the hiring of guitarist Uwe Osterlehner. Not a household name by any means (even among metal fans) but he definitely deserves some mention because the guitar work on this album is truly impressive. Not to discredit Sven Flügge, who is also good in his own right, but Osterlehner definitely gives this band the element they were missing on their previous albums.

Together they deliver what is surely a severely underrated thrash onslaught.

This is their last release and most technical to date. If you like Mekong Delta, you'll love this. Great stuff!

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.
