Truth Decayed is a South African Thrash Metal band founded by long time friends, Warren Jones and Ryno Theron. Warren Jones played for the promising Durban Metal band "Mystical Element" early in his music career.
More later ventures include the successful "Metallica, Kill Em All Tribute" in Durban. Ryno Theron has played in numerous Durban Metal bands, most notably "Throne". He has also for the last few years built up a solid solo career which has seen him release his critically acclaimed "Howling Rush" album, and perform at Smoking Dragon festival, Splashy Fen and more.
To make up the four piece, Warren brought in Johan Maree (bass) and Brandon Carey (drums). Johan is a newbie to the music scene, but packed with talent and passion. Brandon was part of the popular Stigmata Dawn. In his time in Stigmata Dawn, he performed at numerous festivals including Thornfest, Mutherfudd, Season's Wither and Witchfest (When Carcass headlined) to name a few.
With this complete line up they are a new band, with big goals. Developing as a "lockdown band" they have brought our their first single "Modern Day Illusion" which won them a top 5 spot on France The Planet's Southern African Metal Madness Week.
