Vocals are nice, as usual, and overall this is just a good performance by the band.
Metalhammer
Thrash, with a really varied range of vocal styles, from Mustaine-esque snarls to Halford-shrieks, throaty shouts and even melodic singing.
Kingcrimsonprog
The vocals are surprisingly strong, and they're a good counterpart to the hard and heavy guitar work.

I wasn't previously familiar with the UK-based power/thrash band Savage Messiah, but when Earache offered a free download of their new album I figured it was worth a shot. As it turns out, Savage Messiah, which features former members of Shadow Keep and Headless Cross, is quite good, and they strike the perfect balance (for my tastes at least) between power and thrash metal.

Plague of Conscience is the band's third album, and it's very impressive overall. The band delivers plenty of crushing riffs and headbanging rhythms as well as just enough power and melody to keep things from becoming a total thrash-fest. It's more Annihilator or Sanctuary than say Warbringer or Toxic Holocaust. The vocals are surprisingly strong, and they're a good counterpart to the hard and heavy guitar work. Standout tracks are "Architects of Fear" and the title track, but the whole album is very solid.

If you're a fan of bands that walk the line between all-out riffage and power and melody (like Sanctuary, Imagika, Iced Earth, Vicious Rumors and Helstar), Savage Messiah is a band that's well worth checking out. I'd also recommend some lesser-known (but still excellent) power/thrash bands from the US such as Witches Mark, Ancient Creation, Seventh Calling and Core Device.

Savage messiah are a band coming out of england and plauge of conscience is there third release. I have to say i find this a step below there last release insurrection rising. Thats not to say this release is a poor piece of thrash metal its actually quite good but i would buy insurrection rising first if your new to the band. The music is a almost progressive thrash sound and its very well played but i must say i found that the guitars lacked some of the bite of there last album because of the production. And while the vocalist is very good i also found the vocals better and more varied on there last release. And i found less songs that stood out to me this time around. But the ones that did were some of the best thrash released this year such as six feet under the gun,carnival of souls,in thought alone,beyond a shadow of a doubt,shadowbound and the mask of anarchy. Savage messiah are still one of my favorite newer bands and this is quality thrash.

I discovered these guys only a couple of months ago, not even actually. I was doing a wikipedia search for 2012 in heavy metal, and this album was on the list. I thought, "Huh, Savage Messiah. Sounds like a cool name. I ought to check them out." I clicked on the link to their wiki page and saw them listed as a thrash metal band. I like thrash, I thought. I heard clips from their previous album Insurrection Rising, and imediately purchased that one. I also discoverred this one was leaked, so I had to download it, to tide me over until the actual release date. I now own it. I'll also add that in this short month and a half they've become one of my favorite thrash metal bands, of course not yet surpassing classics like Megadeth, Metallica, Testament, Anthrax, Overkill, but I'm REALLY liking all of their albums.

Savage Messiah is a thrash metal band from England. They released their first album, Spitting Venom, in 2007. So, while, they're a new discovery for me, they've been around for a while. This is a band, that based on their first 3, now, albums has changed slightly with every album. Well some changes haven't been so slight. But, they've also stayed true to their sound. A lot of bands find this hard to do, but these guys have succeeded so far.

To get the one complaint out of the way, the guitar sound on this album seems a little flat. It doesn't have that bite it had on Insurrection Rising. That's not to say the guitars sound bad, they have more of a Shadows Fall sound, but they're just missing something in some songs.

The guitar work on here is very solid though. There are plenty of nice riffs to be had, and some solid soloing.

The rhythm section fills in nicely, and the drummer does a nice job.

Now here is a band that I never hear spoken of, rarely if ever hear on the internet radio stations & for the life of me I don't understand why. A friend referred them to me & ALL of their albums are terrific.
What do they sound like? Originally a pure thrash band, they sound more thrash/traditional/power metal with a pair of guitarists who really can tear it up. The riffs & leads all just flow, kicking the listeners all over the backyard with the type of stuff that made us air guitar players in the first place! Opening title cut sets the pace, fast and furious. Six Feet Under the Gun is more mid paced grinder but I love the main riffs that morph into some nice lead guitar interplay towards the end of the song. All Seeing I, The Accuser, Shadowbound are all facemelting tunes with incedible guitar work.
The other very important item that makes this album so nice to listen to is that the band knows how to write a song, lyrically & stylistically. NOTHING here ever feels overstayed & Dave Silver has a quality voice that you can understand, without all the vocal excesses. If you like the samples you hear then you will not go wrong with the album as this one is really an album of the year contender.
