TRUTH DECAYED – releases new album

South African Thrash Ensemble Truth Decayed is primed and set to unleash ‘Faded Visions I’ on 8 April (the first of a two-part release set for 2022). ‘Faded Visions I’ will deliver 5 potent tracks (inclusive of their latest single ‘PTSD’), mixed & mastered by Kris Xenopoulos (Ormsby Guitars, Vulvodynia, Technopath & Xavleg)

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!
