The Art of Deception is a 4-piece band based out of Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, crafting a blend of metal rock, progressive rock, and metal groove with socially conscious lyrics at its heart to create that deep resonance with the listener. They have also built an ironclad reputation with their high-energy live performances all around Pennsylvania, which has garnered considerable interest from fans and critics alike. It has not been a smooth ride as they’ve had to battle numerous challenges along the way, but their passion for music, which has never faltered, holds them together each and every time!
The band is back with a new masterpiece dubbed “Despondency” that was inspired by mental health challenges and the personal pain ensuing from such tumultuous emotional storms.
“Despondency” is a powerful anthemic metal song with a howling presence. Through the guitarist’s menacing range, the drummer’s intense determination, the bassist’s relentless energy, and the lead vocalist’s powerful vocals, we witness The Art of Deception’s naked passion.
You can feel the raw emotions that drive this masterpiece from start to finish, with the band going above and beyond to ensure that a listener connects with this tune on a deep personal level.
Mental health is a critical issue with life and death implications, and the band, who have suffered their own bouts with depression, deemed it fit to create this masterpiece so that anyone out there going through this challenge can find sanctuary and feel less alone in their feelings.
This is a mental health awareness song and one to encourage one to speak up and not suffer alone because there is therapy in sharing.
Accompanied by a spectacular music video that is so in sync with the track’s essence and narrative, “Despondency” is worth checking out for any rock music lover.
“Despondency” is a single off of The Art of Deception’s upcoming EP dubbed “Imminence,” a 6-track project expected to drop soon.
