South African Thrashers Truth Decayed unleash ‘Vicious Circles‘ (the 3rd Single from their new EP ‘Faded,Visions II‘). This captures the sound of Truth Decayed’s most solid and cohesive lineup to date. It has become somewhat of an anthem at live shows, and features Lilitu Caprinae from South African Blackened Death Titans Theatre Runs Red.
Ryno Theron (Truth Decayed Vocalist & Guitarist) shares that “We are very excited to finally share this Music Video for ‘Vicious Circles’ with everyone. We super proud of it and this was really such an amazing experience to work with Lilitu Caprinae from Theatre Runs Red, both on the song, as well as the Music Video. She is so talented, experienced, and professional, and added huge value to this song. And of course, to have our drummer Daniel Philogene who put together such a strong Music Video, with an amazing vision of the concept just really tied this collaboration together so well! ‘Vicious Circles’ is all about going round and around; the same excuses, same situations … always everyone else’s fault! We have all experienced people and situations like these!”
Lilitu Caprinae (Theatre Runs Red Featured Vocalist) adds that “I always jump at the opportunity to collaborate with amazing musicians within our scene, so when Ryno Theron presented the idea to me, I was in! What an awesome experience! The song hits me straight in the soul! So beautifully written, and full of meaning. So grateful to have had the opportunity to work with these incredible musicians!”
Truth Decayed Bio 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, Heavy 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. In 2022 Truth Decayed unleashed the first part of ‘Faded Visions’, with the singles ‘PTSD’, ‘Faded Visions’, and ‘Absolute War’ receiving critical acclaim. The Music Video for ‘Faded Visions’ had its premiere with HEAVY Magazine in Australia (and Truth Decayed also feature on the cover of the latest Magazine Edition). The full ‘Faded Visions I’ had its Exclusive Worldwide Premiere with Metal Injection. The release was supported with extensive shows in South Africa. After the success of ‘Faded Visions I’, the KZN-based quartet was primed and set to elevate things to a blistering next level with ‘Faded Visions II’ in 2023. The singles ‘Death By Design’ and ‘Narcissist’ paved the way to the release of the full EP ‘Faded Visions II’, that had Premieres with World Of Metal and Metal Injection. The EP got an overwhelming positive response on reviews, leading the way now for ‘Vicious Circles’ as the 3rd single, supported by a Music Video.
