Truth Inc Records was established in 2005 by members of South Australian death thrashers Truth Corroded to release the bands music independently. However, since its inception, the label has gone on to sign bands from across Australia, from the crushing Lynchmada, Closed Casket and Kyzer Soze through to international acts such as Mors Principium Est from Finland and Hypno5e from France. The label has also introduced one of Australia's leading heavy music festivals, The New Dead Festival, which over the years has featured bands such as Psycroptic, King Parrot, Goatwhore, The Amenta, Alchemist, Aversions Crown and many more. But after ten years and faced by a massive change in the music industry, Truth Inc is moving ahead, meeting the challenges of change and restructuring to become something even more formidable.
Introducing Truth Inc Records, Management and Touring. The founders of the label will employ their experience as musicians, label and event managers, booking agents, publicists, promoters and merchandisers to offer a service to the bands it represents that will be completely comprehensive. 'This is a time in which Australian heavy music, after years of hard work, is starting to get the international attention it deserves' comments label founder, Greg Shaw 'We are aiming to do our part in continuing to raise the profile of what this country has on offer and also introduce new bands from overseas to Australia. Over the years we have learnt a great deal - we have made mistakes, we have had some triumphs, and have gone from strength to strength in the process. We have also seen a massive change in the music industry over the years which challenges both being a label and being a band. As a consequnce, we are now ready to put our experiences both as musicians and our varied involvement in the music industry to use, face these challenges, and help develop the bands we represent at a whole new level. Truth Inc will offer a service that brings all aspects of a bands needs - management, publicity, touring and more - into one service rather than several'
To coincide with the restructure, Truth Inc Records, Management and Touring (Truth Inc RMT) would like to introduce two new signings, both from the labels home state of South Australia - Headbore and Alkira! Commenting on the introduction of the new signings, label partner Jason North states 'Headbore bring a sound that is strong in both melody and groove that is comparable to bands such as Machine Head and Lamb of God. The bands debut 'Strength In Numbers' received critical acclaim from across the world and Headbore are ready to deliver a crushing follow up next year. Alkira are a hard working thrash band that are comparable to greats such as Exodus, early Slayer and Anthrax who recently released a great debut called 'Juggernaut'. In the short time the band have been around they have worked hard touring across Australia and have supported US thrashers Havok over in Asia'
