EP Review: Truth Decayed – Faded Visions I (Self Released)

Truth Decayed is a South African thrash ensemble primed and set to unleash ‘Faded Visions I’ on the 8th of April, 2022. It is the first of a two-part release set for 2022.

An introduction that is thrashing mad, Truth Decayed welcome us to their new EP with a blistering slice of fire with the title track. Ear pleasing guitar flair, vocals that have a death-infused growl and chunky drum beats make this one hell of a strong opener.

Having built up the excitement with that start, Absolute War and The World I Know have the task of keeping it at a high. Which, thanks to Truth Decayed penchant for thrilling riffs and thrashy groove heaviness, ensures that is the case. Both tracks feature in-your-face vocals and electrifying guitar solos but the latter has a moody vibe that just sits nicely in the brain matter.



PTSD is a banger too. A thrash attack that ticks all the boxes for heavy, meaty and infectious metal. Truth Decayed spitting fire and fanning the flames to turn a burn into an inferno. Before The Witches’ Watch wraps things up with a more epic sounding listen. A tad more melodic, a tad melodramatic, a tad ‘ballady’ and completely instrumental. A guitar virtuoso showcase that is so very pleasing.

Roll on Faded Visions II.
