South African Trash Metal Ensemble; Truth Decayed Release New EP, called: Faded Visions Part I. Out April, 8!

Truth Decayed hail from Durban, South Africa, and started during lockdown early 2020. The quartet 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 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, with positive reviews in magazines like Metal Hammer.

During 2021 Truth Decayed 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 also enjoyed frequent Radio play from notable stations like Wacken Radio, and their track ‘Opposing Direction’ featured on the Greece Compilation ‘In The Sign Of Chaos Vol 3’ and ‘PTSD’ on the US Compilation ‘Rage Against Cancer’ from Malevolence Records.

Truth Decayed has also been hard at work the past 18 months on their two-part release titled ‘Faded Visions I’ and ‘Faded Visions II’, with the first single ‘PTSD’ receiving a warm reception and positive feedback already. Truth Decayed is primed and ready to take things to a blistering next level, so watch out world!

It’s a heavy album and you’ll hear it as soon as the music starts playing. Fast Forward drums along with a great guitar-piece will make sure you’ll start head-banging instantly. Add a great and powerful voice and insane solo-pieces to the ingredients and you have the perfect recipe to this album.

Throughout the entire play these will be the things that keep you going on. Either head-banging; or, if you can’t control yourself, start your own mosh pit. It’s all possible with these brilliant songs.

The ending then also comes a bit as a surprise. the music plays on a slower pace, but that does not mean it’s a bad thing. It will put you in a trance, just by listening to the insane guitar work made for this song. A perfect ending that leads to a new beginning. That is certain.
