Savage Messiah have a slightly more progressive/modern slant on thrash compared to say Evile or Gama Bomb,but without pandering to the metalcore,modern metal crowd.
Singer Dave Silver does sound uncannily like Dave Mustaine at times,no bad thing in my fact this record is like a souped up,steroid injected version of Megadeth!
The riffing on this cd is top notch with twists and turns on every song,making sure they keep your full attention.
My only slight criticism are that a couple of tracks veer a little too close to S/Y/L or Machine Head type sound,but i'm been hyper critical here!This is a excellent release and well worth buying!

Big ball riffs man, that's all I have to say. 14 Dec. 2009
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Holy thrash revival... Although their band is (intentionally?) named after an Arch Enemy song, Savage Messiah are not another melo-death worship act, but one of the current wave of bands re-doing thrash metal with modern production and a hindsight perspective on what works for the genre.

Think equal parts Testament and Cowboys From Hell-era Pantera, with healthy quantities of (old) Metallica and Megadeth thrown around. Obviously one could also point out the influence of Kreator, Exodus, and a million others, but for everyone's sake I'll keep this a review and not a novel.

The Testament thing comes across really strongly in the riffing, but also in the production values, as Savage Messiah seemed to have learned from 1999's The Gathering that thrash is best when thick, meaty, and tighter than a witches cleft. Everything on Insurrection Rising sounds killer as a result.

The Pantera elements are clear as soon as the vocals come in. People often wonder what happened to Phil Anselmo's voice after Cowboys From Hell. Well, it sounds like he gave it to Dave Silver of Savage Messiah. Also similarly to everyone's favorite Texans, Savage Messiah show no fear of sliding into some acoustic sections with bluesy or melodic solos. Their songwriting shows just enough variety to stay interesting while keeping the thrash engine rolling.

The Metallica and Megadeth influence, well... can you really even write thrash metal without sounding like those bands in some way? Big ball riffs man, that's all I have to say.

You might think by reading this review that there is nothing new to hear on Insurrection Rising if you already own Master Of Puppets, Rust In Peace, Cowboys From Hell, and The Gathering. You're right, there isn't. I don't think Savage Messiah's goal is to revolutionize anything though, and they re-deliver thrash in such a great way that it's worth letting those old classics log a bit of shelf time while the new dogs show you what they've got.

Great new thrash record. 26 April 2010

Really enjoyed this one. Good mix of old school thrash with more modern influences. These guys should be the premier UK thrash band.

Highlights would be Corruption X & Insurrection Rising

There is the odd filler song on there but generally very consistent.

Great vocals & Riffs!

Why it took me 2 years to find this CD I don't know but I'm glad I found it. This is a must for any fans of bands like Testament, Overkill, Death Angel, Megadeth, etc. Great sound and great songwriting. Keep an eye out for their new release in early 2012.

Savage messiah is one of the better bands of the recent thrash revival. Insurrection rising is the follow up to spitting venom and is a fantastic release. Very much influenced by the bay area scene while still sounding fresh they are very much a band to be reckoned with. There is only one weak song on the disc in my opinion that being corruption x as I find it bland and uninteresting. The rest of the songs are some of the best thrash I have heard in awhile. The riffs, solos and leads are all memorable and impressive. The vocalist has a great voice in my opinion for this type of music heavy, dynamic and melodic. The rest of the band isn't shabby either. The highlights for me would have to be in absence of liberty with its killer riffs and chorus. As well as the serpent tongue of divinity, the nihilist machine and he who laughs last. Bottom line is if your a fan of the classic thrash bands of the eighties or quality metal in general then savage messiah and insurrection rising is well worth your time.
Incredible CD! A must-own for any metal collection! 30 April 2014

Great CD! Worth every penny! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal! If you enjoy metal, you have to aggressively search to find the gems, as the radio plays the same old crap over and over, and while Sirius is much better, they hardly ever play most of the gems I've found by looking at metal label websites and metal magazine reviews online. Check-out some of the CDs that I have reviewed in my past, and I guarantee you will find something you may not have ever heard of! Stay metal and support our metal community!
