Crushing The Deceiver formed in late 2016. The band is primarily a duo, consisting of Grant and Johnny, but as they grow and start to play shows they will be adding some excellent players to bring you an exciting live show. Both of them have played music for many years in various styles and line ups but one thing has been prominent, they both LOVE metal!
Grant has been playing since 1991, he was only 7 years old when he started dabbling in music. He and his older brother formed the brutal Death Metal band, Artery Eruption in 1996. He later played in various bands including the Death Metal band Devouring Humanity, Pop-Punk band Genetically Altered, Tech-Death band Strangulated, and Tech-Death band Epileptic Mastication. Through it all his favorite genre of music has always been Thrash, but he has never had the chance to be in a full on Thrash band.
Grant partnered with his current business partner Scott (the original owner of Cravings) in 2015. They would become 50/50 owners of a brand new restaurant called Cravings in Clovis, California. This led to him becoming good friends with Johnny, the second half of Crushing The Deceiver. Johnny knew that Grant had a musical background, because he works right next door to the restaurant, at the same place of ex- Artery Eruption bassist, Carl.
Johnny himself has been heavily in the music industry for 14 years playing with Metal Core bands, Breath Of The Dying, and Obfuscate. Johnny would approach Grant one day after ordering food and asked if he would like to jam some time. Grant said yes, but if he was to ever do a band again it would have to be a Christian Thrash band. At that point Grant was unsure what Johnny would say, but after some thought he was in full force and it has been full throttle ever since.
Johnny writes all the music and also records the band, Johnny is really the brains of the operation. The partnership they have has been great. Grant would write all of the lyrics and Johnny writes all the music. Together, they hope to bring a message of hope and God to the Metal community. With having a past in brutal Death Metal, Grant felt strongly it was time to glorify God with the musical talent he was blessed with.
