Saviours - Crete’n

Saviours is an American rock, stoner metal band. The band was formed in 2004 in Oakland, California. Since then, they have released four full-length albums and few EPs.

The Californian quartet shuffles around in a not-quite-fixed-land by releasing a record that fingers little here and there. Death Procession feels rather comfortable in my ears and this sounds like a bearded mix of sludgy thrash and sweet Stoner and that becomes a thickened riff experience. To my somewhat limited access to their previous works makes my curiosity is growing and realizing that I had to check up on their earlier records. The new album is also released on Vinyl. It Should be noted That the vinyl of Death's Procession Have Embossed covers for The First Run.


Their words about new album:

The main influence on their latest album is Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Thin Lizzy. The whole record is a trek through Earth’s demise which everyone contributes to, oblivious or not. It’s a procession toward death. The world has gone insane. Humans have become apathetic, greedy, self-centered, over-medicated, delusional parasites in a filthy, drained and deflated world. It’s hopeless now, too far gone. Now we wait. That’s what this record is about. Earth’s possession and death’s procession.

Death’s Procession was recorded by Phil Manley (of Trans Am and The Fucking Champs) at Lucky Cat in San Francisco.




The band consists of:
Austin Barber - vocals, lead & rhythm guitar
Sonny Christopher Reinhardt - lead & rhythm guitar
Cyrus Comiskey (Black Fork, Drunk Horse) - bass
Scott Batiste - drums

The band is on tour currently and lands in Sweden in late October for three dates, Gothenburg, Stockholm and Linkoping. See rest of the tour below.

Christoffer Röstlund Jonsson wrote a review of the new record in the Metro newspaper, read it here!


Todays tune “Crete’n” is the second 12" single taken from Saviours latest album "Death’s Procession"
