Savage Messiah - Biography




Savage Messiah was formed in 2007 in London, England. The band consists of lead guitarist/vocalist Dave Silver, lead guitarist Sy Taplin, bassist Sasha Cron and drummer Ernie Nogara.

In October 2007 the band released its debut CD "Spitting Venom" via SMR Productions, the bands own label which was picked up for distribution by Plastic Head. The album was produced by Andy Faulkner (Bolt Thrower, Siam) and received great press from all corners of the world, seeing the band drawing comparisons with acts such as Judas Priest, Arch Enemy, Carcass, Lamb of God, Metallica and many others.

Ultimately the record would catch the attention of Candlelight Records who signed the band in January 2009.

The guys immediately entered The Ecology Room studios in Deal, England to work with the Legendary, Grammy Nominated producer Chris Tsangarides. Famous for his production on such seminal albums as "Painkiller" by Judas Priest, "Tattooed Millionares" by Bruce Dickinson as well as notching up production credits for bands such as Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Yngwie Malmsteen and more recently Biomechanical as well as many many others.

Recording was finished in March before the band recruited Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth, Gama Bomb) to mix the effort.

The album was released in Europe in October 2009.
