London metallers SAVAGE MESSIAH are due to kick off the first show of their UK tour today – Saturday, 25th October.
The tour starts off at The Cellars in Oxford, before continuing with more shows around the UK in November. SAVAGE MESSIAH will be supported by label mates THE MORE I SEE on select UK dates, before taking a break for the holidays and then heading out on a European trek in the new year with Swedish melodic death metallers AMON AMARTH.
London metallers SAVAGE MESSIAH have announced that fellow Brits and labelmates THE MORE I SEE will support them on select dates of their recently-announced UK tour, which kicks off on October 25th in Oxford.
SAVAGE MESSIAH frontman DAVE SILVER comments:
“We’re really pleased to be bringing The More I See out with us in November. We’ve known the guys for a while and they’re a great bunch, and also a great new British heavy metal band. Bring on November!”
THE MORE I SEE lead guitarist GIZZ BUTT adds:
“It’s an absolute honour and a very exciting prospect that we will be touring with Savage Messiah in the fall of 2014. After the ‘Plague of Conscience’ album being eternally on repeat in The More I See band van, then ‘The Fateful Dark’ arriving in March 2014, and THEN to share quality time with Dave Silver as a fellow Heavy Metal Truant on the 160-mile cycle ride ‘to Download or bust’, it’s a privilege to be able to support a band we all really dig and feel akin with from a musical and labelmates perspective. FUCKING BRING THE FUCKER ON!!!”
Big news – Savage Messiah front man David Silver is taking part in this years Heavy Metal Truant Bike ride in aid of the Nordoff Robbins Charity!
The bike ride idea started in 2012, where manager of IRON MAIDEN, RON SMALLWOOD, and Metal Hammer Editor-in-Chief ALEXANDER MILAS started the idea of influential people in the metal music community getting on their bikes and riding to Download Festival (instead of taking the limo or the helicopter), getting people to sponsor them then giving all the money to charityl Last year the event last year raised almost 100,000GBP for Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust and Childline.
This year, our very own Dave Silver is taking this challenge to ride to Donnington in 3 days, covering 161 miles and very much looking forward to a festival at the end of it!

When it was announced that Denver’s Thrash Metal four-piece Havok will be hitting the road across Europe and stopping by to play a gig at one of London’s most underground venues, it was clear that it won’t be a show to miss.
Despite the fact that 25th of November was a rather cold and grim Monday night in London, a decent amount of heavy metal fans had made their way down to The Underworld in Camden Town ready to drink beer and party like it’s Friday night.
Scheduled to play alongside Havok were London’s Savage Messiah and Spanish Angelus Apatrida making it a killer thrash metal line-up to cure any of our Monday blues.
The “Unnatural Selection” European tour is due to kick off on November 23rd in Edegem, Belgium, shortly after SAVAGE MESSIAH’s headlining UK mini tour. The European trek also features support from ANGELUS APATRIDA.
SAVAGE MESSIAH guitarist JOFF BAILEY comments:
“We’re really excited to announce the news that we’ll be hitting the road across Europe this November/December with Havok! We really can’t wait to hit European shores again and tear it up with all the Savages over there! We’ve been shut away in the studio all summer working on the new record (which is sounding absolutely brutal by the way!) so when they finally let us loose for our headline tour in October and now across Europe a couple of weeks later with Havok, well, needless to say, we’ll burst out fuckin’ swinging! I may even put in place a strict diet of Maiden, Metallica and Rocky montage scenes to fire us up even more! See you on the road! STAY SAVAGE!!”
SAVAGE MESSIAH have confirmed plans to enter the studio on July 1st to begin recording their as-yet untitled new studio album.
The band will be working on the follow-up to 2012’s PLAGUE OF CONSCIENCE with producer SCOTT ATKINS (SYLOSIS, BEHEMOTH) at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, having already worked with him on the band’s last two albums.
SAVAGE MESSIAH will be taking a break from recording their as-yet untitled new album to take part in the five-date trek, which kicks off on July 16th at the Garage in London. The band will then be heading out around the UK again in October on a mini headlining tour.
SAVAGE MESSIAH lead guitarist JOFF BAILEY comments:
“Me and the boys will be taking a break from recording our new album in July to tear up the road again around the UK with WINTERSUN! The band is in fighting form at the moment and we’re set to raise absolute hell around the UK on this tour and our headline shows in October! We’ll also be previewing some brand new songs taken from the new record throughout all of these dates, making it the heaviest Savage Messiah set list to date! It really is gonna kick ya fuckin’ skulls in. Mark our words… WE MEAN FUCKIN’ BUSINESS!! We really can’t wait to rip the throat out of these shows and catch up with all the Savages around the country! See you in the pit – then at the bar, mutha fukkas! BRING IT!!!”

SAVAGE MESSIAH lead guitarist JOFF BAILEY comments:
“We’re thrilled to announce that we will be opening for Queensrÿche on April 26th in Eindhoven! Queensrÿche have been a big influence on us and it’s awesome to be chosen to go and play a show with them! We had some killer shows in Holland last year and are really looking forward to going back and thrashing out with all the Savages we met over there!”
I managed to catch Joff just after his set with Savage Messiah, and as a friend of the guy for many years, back from when we were both growing up in Joff’s home town of Hastings, seeing his progression and going through many bands to get to where he is today, it was a great moment to see him playing at Bloodstock 2012 and kicking ass on stage!
So a quick thanks to Joff for being such a dude and giving up his time at the Bloodstock Festival for Metal-Rules.com! Read the rest of this entry »
