HARPOON “Deception Among Birds”

“Deception Among Birds”
(Seventh Rule)
There was a time when I thought Helmet was the coolest in metal you could listen to. Not so anymore. The kind of metal that Helmet played quickly got old and something new came and replaced it. Harpoon kinda make me feel like that again. This is quirky and twisty in a way that can get tiresome if you’re not in the right mood. The mix of hardcore and metal aesthetics is a sloopy road to walk. One wrong step and you off the trodden path. Harpoon manages for most of the time to stay on the path and for that I thank them. It makes it so much easier on my ears that way. And that they made me think back to those happy memories of Helmet was just an added bonus. Anders Ekdahl
