Biography

It all started when two bright kids named Gary Barrientos and Carlos Delgado met each other after school outside of Gary's apartment. They were both wearing, coincidentally, MetallicA shirts and said "Hey!You want to jam?"
At that point in time, they were trying desperately to find themselves in a world of inane music. This attempt conjured a project that would be unleashed to the world as "DECEIVER". Not for a few years did anything special happen in their musical world.
Finally, the year 2004 proved that determination, perseverance, and conviction were key elements in unlocking the secrets behind an alliance of imaginations. With the addition of lead guitarist Mauricio Vera. He brought a different scheme, which only solidified an already firm foundation. A unique vision that blended and fused much more ground than ever before. Hungry for change in an all too linear metal scene, they have brought a whole universe of ideas in their music blending and meshing the discordant influences of such groups as Carcass, At the Gates, Fear Factory, the John Coltrane quartet,Ram-Zet, and Cryptopsy just to name a few.
It was the dawn of a new era. A light in the darkness that had once ended the band's high expectations, the past departures of former bass player Mario Biollo and guitarist Armando Saenz were not events to look back sorrowfully on.
As of 2005, Juan Santiago joined the collective. The quartet felt ready to extricate"Humanity On The Brink", their first project as a new band. This opus indisputably established them as a strong force in the metal scene, receiving great praise by their peers and fellow musicians alike. The band now constantly writing new music, recording, and gigging extensively, declares that there is no barrier they cannot breakdown. Only the past is the enemy. Confident of all positive things to come in the near future, their eyes are open wide. A monster waiting in the shadows....

Lyrics

Eyes Unborn

Written By: Deceiver

I reign my dominion, a shapeless face
a voice echoes years of pain
Behold time comes crushing down
these visions unbound

Bodies, slaves, save me...

Entice as a prophet, your servant I am
a voice echoes years in vain
All souls condemned to damnation,
eyes unborn to an angel

Bodies, slaves, save me...

Fire swarms from the mouth of madness
the abyss of the churning furnaces
unleashing silence with my searing flesh
a thousand eyes amongst the shadows

Scrape the blood of my eyes
carve your poison into my skin
crown your masked idealist
a tight iron grip

Life is an illusion, a dream that scars along the way
endless puzzles in my mind, a future non-existant

Life is an illusion, only but a dream
never ending circles, endless puzzles in my mind
This caccophony, dissolution now revives
bred under lies, no one can save us now...

Fire swarms from the mouth of madness
the abyss of the churning furnaces
unleashing silence with my searing flesh
a thousand eyes amongst the shadows

Scrape the blood of my eyes
carve your poison into my skin
crown your masked idealist
crown this kingdom no more

Life losing control, fear painful lies
This wounded soul, all ends in silence
Open eyes unborn

Let's Play God

Written By: Gary Barrientos

Grace my hands upon your skin, in perfect motion i unmask
Bodiless depression, mournful amusement i distort
Submit my being in my fall, that to conceal is to control
unfinished pacific terror, unbroken brutality at peace

Show me the pleasure that i must abide
when you become god and tell me what to do
whoever said you could be the one
to put my life in your deciding hand
my weak words cultivate your mind
sweet, pure, and tasteless
Let's Play God

Why is that many just follow
and be pulled like puppets, empty thoughts so hollow
Now, my hand will fall
as fire it shall reign, over your eyes a cloak
you forgot your name

Only one thing is certain now, but i need not tell you this
All this time has and you've come to realize

Perpetual darkness we must endure
Twisting the meaning ever so slight
to relive a past so reticent
to retell your tale once again

Grace my hands upon your skin, in perfect motion i unmask
Bodiless depression, mournful amusement i distort

Show me the pleasure that i must abide
when you become god and tell me what to do
whoever said you could be the one
to put my life in your deciding hand
Let's Play God

The Soul Revolution

Written By: Gary Barrientos

A silent passenger, forging thoughts without words
am i dead or dreaming knocking on these unknown pale doors
plunge in the depths of uncertainty, as we fear the war machine
this god reclaiming his throne in time, paving the way for mine

A silent messenger, forcing the world with a gun
drenched in blood and screaming running through lone corridors
plunge in the depths of uncertainty, as we feed the war machine
sickening inside as the land divides, with empty eyes,
this bleeding scythe

Lifeless masses, alone i will clench my gun
Lifeless masses, all fear in this life is under a dying sun

silence, insanity, all around the shadows sleep
silence, tranquility, all of this i can't conceive

Confound i paved my way lost in unknown as the seasons changed
lost, these empty eyes, creations of time engulfed in flames
