Savage Messiah hail from London, England, where they were formed by vocalist, lead guitarist, and all-around creative force Dave Silver shortly after the demise of his previous band, Headless Cross. The band issued its debut EP, Spitting Venom, in 2007, followed in 2009 by a proper full-length, the Candlelight Records-issued Insurrection Rising. The following year saw the band ink a multi-album deal with Earache, and in 2012 they released a new long-player, Plague of Conscience. The Fateful Dark followed in early 2014. In early 2017 the band inked a deal with Century Media Records, which released their fourth studio long-player, Hands of Fate, later that October.
