The Art of Deception's Share New Single 'Mortal', A Powerful Meditation on Imperfection

Pine Grove metalcore outfit The Art of Deception have just dropped their latest single and video, 'Mortal', and it's an absolute banger. The track is a powerful exploration of self-acceptance, acknowledging our flaws, and the journey of personal growth. Frontman Nolan's lyrics are raw and vulnerable, reflecting on missed signs and the importance of open communication.

Musically, the new single is a powerful continuation of the band's sounds, diving into some classic Art of Deception elements - heavy riffs, pounding drums, and soaring vocals. It's the kind of song that gets stuck in your head and makes you want to throw down in a mosh pit.

Speaking of the new single, frontman Nolan says, "'Mortal' illustrates how we are all imperfect. Our flaws and decisions made dictate how and who we move forward with in life. Learning to acknowledge your own faults, bettering yourself, & learning trust all stem from self-acceptance."

The band's nine-year journey, marked by two EPs and numerous singles, has led them to this point. In perfect form, 'Mortal' follows the release of three other singles, 'Despondency', 'Anguish', and 'Isolated'. It's clear they're a band firing on all cylinders, and we can't wait to see what else they have in store.

If you're a fan of metalcore, or just good music in general, you need to check out 'Mortal'. The Art of Deception have once again proven they're a force to be reckoned with, and we can't wait to see what they do next.
