Modern-Groove Metal from Italy
True Lie are on the same level of the most appreciated bands on the scene: quality and substance coexist perfectly, in a debut album that will leave you breathless more than once. -Rock Hard-
True Lie really deserve to be juxtaposed with the big names of the industry, not by imitation but because of their skill. -MetalHammer.it-
Hailing from Italy TRUE LIE mixed melodic death metal, thrash with the grooviest metal core, without sounding predictable.
Melody. Rage. Atmosphere.
True Lie debut album “At The First Glare Of A Colder Sky” is a journey through the shades of human depths with an explosive modern metal sound.
Formed in 2010 in Foligno (ITALY), True Lie started composing their own songs right away. Their sound is a metal with strong american sonority, between post-thrash, metalcore and groove, where much space is given to the melody. The lyrics are very thought-out and never dull. After a period of intense work in the rehearsal studio and live performances between 2010 and 2011, True Lie released their first demo. In early 2012 the band recorded a new 3-track EP, latest expression of their musical talent, followed by a year full of gigs throughout Italy. 2013 is a year of intense work for the band, engaged in the writing of their first full length "At the first glare of a colder sky". In 2014 True Lie joins To React Records, and release their debut album. Currently the band is working on new songs and on the promotion of their new LP.
