Former Violent Deception frontman Jonathan Horberry has announced there will be no final show to mark the end of the band. Mixing NWOBHM, Power Metal and Thrash, Violent Deception were characterised by their vocal and guitar harmonies and sweeping solos. The band formed in 2009 after a group of close knit friends exchanged riffs and musical ideas, and from there they proceeded to create songs which would become staples in their set – such as I am Fear and The Ripper.
On Friday 13th of April 2012 VD announced they had mutually decided to part ways, having come to feel the band had run its course. At the time they mentioned the possibility of performing a farewell show.
In the same recent statement lead guitarist and vocalist Jon unveiled his new project - 'V.Ÿ.P.Ë.R’which will feature also VD drummer Phil on drumming duties. They are currently writing new material and searching for a bassist.
The full statement is as follows:
