Verbal Deception is a heavy metal band that formed in Calgary, Canada in November 2002.

Biography

Formed in 2002 by original members, Kresho Klarich (guitar and vocals), Walt Fleming (keyboard and piano),and Taylor Pierce (drums). Their music has become known for its distinct pirate metal sound, as a direct result of their use of the Bandoneon voice of a keyboard, along with their combination of death, power and some prog elements. The name "Verbal Deception" - comes from a phrase in the song Mentally Blind by the legendary Death (band) and apparently is a respectful nod to Chuck Schuldiner. Johnny Iocca replaced Pierce in the fall of 2003. Verbal Deception recorded a 6 track self titled EP in April 2004 and was favourably reviewed by the [http://www.metal-observer.com/ Metal Observer] webzine in May of 2005, acknowledging the band’s “original melodies…in today’s uniformity”

Jordon Bourgeault replaced Iocca on drums in September 2004 and the group remained a trio until they recruited bassist Terry Baldwin from the metal group Caveat to fill in the low end. An active performance schedule helped establish Verbal Deception's reputation within the underground metal scene and the band was quickly playing to full venues and community halls. They headed back into the studio in 2005 and 2006 to finish their debut full-length CD. With Terry's commitments to [http://www.myspace.com/caveatsmusic Caveat] increasing, they then recruited Matt Petti on bass in April 2006.
