Truth Decayed is a Thrash Metal ensemble from Durban, South Africa. Albeit a newly formed outfit (started during lockdown early 2020), the band combines the talents of seasoned musicians from varied bands craftily collected by founders and long-time friends Warren Jones and Ryno Theron.
Mere weeks from formation, the band unleashed their debut single ‘Modern Day Illusion’ that earned them a top position on France The Planet's ‘Metal Madness Week Competition’ on BurgStudio. This was closely followed by winning the Battle of the Bands with ‘The Metal Lab’ in the UK. Their debut EP ‘Modern Day Illusion’ and Music Video for ‘Opposing Direction’ soon followed and received critical acclaim from numerous renowned global media channels like Metal Hammer.
Truth Decayed has proudly represented South Africa on the global stage on international Online Festivals like SUBGB Festival de Música (Colombia), Heresy Fest (Argentina), Caio Indica Fest (Brazil), Larva Fest (Peru), La Ley del Rock (Argentina & Italy), Music Entropia (Greece), as well as the World Of Metal Online Festival (Portugal) where they opened for icons Venom, Rotting Christ, Anvil and Iron Saviour. Truth Decayed has enjoyed frequent Radio play from foremost stations like Wacken Radio, and their track ‘Opposing Direction’ has been featured on the Greece Compilation ‘In The Sign Of Chaos Vol 3’.
Truth Decayed has been hard at work on their album that will be unleashed in 2022 as a two-part release titled ‘Faded Visions I’ and ‘Faded Visions II’. The first single is called PTSD and as the name implies, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) deals with the psychiatric nightmares from tragic and traumatic events that play out repeatedly in your psyche … like a gaping incision in your mind! It causes silent pain and suffering … to the point where it becomes an incapacitating scar on your soul. Medication offers temporary relief, yet your strength and ambitions wade away slowly like a silent scream! The past 20 months have seen such escalating levels of global pain and suffering, that PTSD is rife more than ever in the lives of so many. It is time for empathy, understanding, support and healing!
PTSD was Mixed and Mastered by the Ormsby Guitars Ambassador Kris Xenopoulos (from bands like Vulvodynia, Technopath & Xavleg), delivering a potent production angle to this trenchant Thrash Metal belter!
Truth Decayed is primed and ready for the next phase of their career, so watch out world!
