RUBY THE HATCHET's New Song "Deceiver" Is Catchy Heavy Metal Perfection

This is never, ever getting out of your head.

Ruby The Hatchet

Ruby The Hatchet is now streaming their new song "Deceiver" and it's going to get stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Between the earworm of a chorus and the heaps of dual guitar leads floating around throughout its runtime, "Deceiver" has more hooks than a well-stock tackle box. So please, only hit play if you're prepared for that sort of catchiness.

"We are really going after our live energy with these singles because 'Deceiver' immediately follows 'Thruster' in our current set list," said Ruby The Hatchet vocalist Jillian Taylor of the single. "No break, no tuning – just straight into the next punch. The chorus is powerful and personal: 'Deceiver, all is not lost, but wide oceans wait for you to cross.'

"From a lyrical perspective, 'Deceiver' is written from a hard-learned experience of mine; a common departure on Fear Is a Cruel Master compared to our previous albums. Instead of relating to something medieval or otherworldly, my anger and sadness felt visceral and relatable: wanting to forgive someone dear who betrays you, and finding strength in forgiving and leaving the door open rather than slamming it shut and burning down the house you built together. It is a hopeful song for the wounded."

Ruby The Hatchet will release their new record Fear Is a Cruel Master on October 21. Pre-orders are available here.
