Biography

Oakland, San Francisco CA, United States (2004 – present)

Saviours are an explosive, unbridled force. Possessing an extraordinary songwriting sense, lion-hearted innovation, world class technical ability and a bottomless pool of raw talent and creativity, Saviours are one of creative heavy music’s most exciting new bands.

Fast becoming known as one of the best contemporary metal bands on the planet today, Saviours deliver sensational heavy music with a latent punk energy that merges scorched-earth aggression and multidirectional riff odysseys with a mean d-beat pummel and Motörhead-like locomotive roar. The red hot band has been on a fast rise since its formation in 2002 and has electrified stages the world over, touring alongside peers such as Kylesa, The Sword and Mastodon as well as with legends such as Saint Vitus and High on Fire; each who have given their stamp of approval to Saviours’ roaring, electric sound and power.

Formed in 2004, Oakland, California’s Saviours are the end product of a “vision-quest” by guitarist / vocalist Austin Barber and drummer Scott Batiste. An ipecac reaction to the current state of heavy music, they aimed to assemble an epically heavy, crushingly loud band that would reinvigorate their love for excessive volume.

Inspired by all kinds of metal, from ’70s doom, NWOBHM, Bay Area Thrash to early black metal, as well as that which informed West Coast hardcore punk and skate culture (think Black Flag and BL’AST!), Saviours effortlessly mix punishing riffs and venomous lyrics to lead the charge of today’s young, hungry metal elite.
