Truth Corroded: The Saviours Slain

Various styles of noteworthy metal groups call Australia home like the wickedly intense Psycroptic. But they aren't alone as there are others deserving of attention equally eager to release that extreme metal wrath like Truth Corroded. This band have been gaining momentum as they steadily grow in popularity, having toured with many of metal's prominent groups including Fear Factory and Sepultura. Releasing three albums along the way the latest from Truth Corroded The Saviours Slain is a heady slab of Truth Corroded's enthusiastic titanic thrash/death metal.

Truth Corroded's lyrics and themes are influenced by "Political, religious and social commentary" which promptly appear as the album begins with "Precipice" and spoken words about the hot topic of what are the real motivations behind going to war, and the consequences of such actions. The added impact one can create from the visual aspect has not been forgotten as just like their songs on The Saviours Slain's that confronting cover art is also powerful.

The Saviours Slain is erupting with explosive metal, a rapid performance ensues on "They Are Horror" not easing back Truth Corroded continue that express metal onto "The Fall Endless". I have to mention that alluring dark and catchy vibe of the title track "The Saviours Slain". There are some similarities to other extreme acts but it's hard to draw direct comparisons with other groups due to the nature of their style. Taking thrash and death metal influences on board Truth Corroded's metal brutality is so effective whether they are performing at breakneck speeds or cutting it right back.

Take that all crushing drumming, decimating guitar play coupled with those intensely fierce vocals and you have Truth Corroded's The Saviours Slain one truly powerful metal album.
