Perception is/as/of Deception

· by Patrick Baillargeon

ADULT. returns after 2018’s acclaimed This Behavior. Perception is/as/of Deception takes the Detroit duo back to where they left off with their previous album, but this time with perhaps a bit more aggression and force. ADULT. were locked in a windowless basement painted entirely black when they gave birth to this eighth effort. Claustrophobic atmosphere, martial rhythms, strident sonorities, the ever-present synthesized aggression and sense of the end of the world, the duo doesn’t alter its trajectory, delivering here a pre-apocalyptic framework in nine parcels, declaimed in Nicola Kuperus’ cold and detached voice. Perception is/as/of Deception is a dystopian, disturbing, and anxious work that will certainly feed the ambient chaos and the feeling of emptiness so pervasive in these times.
