TRUTH CORRODED are a thrash/death metal crossover band from South Australia. Since 2007 the band have actively been touring across the world, performing throughout Europe, the UK, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, sharing the stage and tours with acts such as FEAR FACTORY, BEHEMOTH, LAMB OF GOD, ARCH ENEMY, SUFFOCATION, DECAPITATED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, NILE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE and many, many more. Taking the bands early influences from late 80's and early 90's thrash and death metal and bringing in elements of more contemporary extreme music, TRUTH CORRODED have forged a sound that is intense and confronting and backs the bands strong social and political lyrical and artistic commentary.
The bands most recent album release, 'THE SAVIOURS SLAIN', was mixed and mastered by Mark Lewis at Audiohammer Studio (DEVILDRIVER, UNEARTH, WHITECHAPEL) and features guest appearances by the legendary Bret Hoffmann of MALEVOLENT CREATION and Craig Locicero of FORBIDDEN. Commenting on the guest appearances, vocalist Jason North reflects 'Having both Bret and Craig feature on the album is an incredible contribution to our musical identity. Both artists have featured in bands that have been a big part of the inspiration and influence that form the foundation of the band itself'. Also featured on the album is Kevin Talley (SUFFOCATION, DYING FETUS) on session drums, who previously featured on the bands 'WORSHIP THE BLED' album.
THE SAVIOURS SLAIN saw the band tour extensively across the world from 2014 to 2016, performing across Europe and the UK with SUFFOCATION, NILE, ROTTING CHRIST, MARDUK,ABBATH and VADER, Japan and Taiwan with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, Hong Kong and Thailand with SUFFOCATION, headlining tours through South Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, and across Australia with FEAR FACTORY, IN FLAMES, AT THE GATES, DECAPITATED, GOATWHORE and PSYCROPTIC.
In 2016 TRUTH CORRODED returned to the studio, once again working with Kevin Talley as session drummer, and recording in the bands home towns of South Australia and Melbourne. The new album, titled 'BLOODLANDS', was mixed and mastered by Chris 'ZEUSS' Harris at Planet Z Studio (SOULFLY, HATEBREED) and features some incredible contributions from guest artists Terrance Hobbs (SUFFOCATION) Stephen Carpenter (DEFTONES) Mark Kloeppel (MISERY INDEX) and Ryan Knight (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, ARSIS). 'As with our last album, the contributions from our guest artists is a sum of our influences over the years - both foundation and contemporary, and we were fortunate to have each musician involved and bring their own identity to an album that they helped shape over the years from their own respective influences on our sound' states bassist Greg Shaw. The band present an album that has elements of thrash, death, post and black metal, and confront issues ranging from the displacement of people through warfare, terrorism, religious fundamentalism and the impact of these challenges on the increasingly right wing policies of the Australian and other western governments. 'From a lyrical standpoint this album has a far greater concern with the changes I have seen in my own country, which by extension are part of a disturbing shift that is happening in other western countries' comments bassist and lyricist Greg Shaw.
