I guess after nearly a decade and a half the editor has a pretty good handle on my musical tastes and when he gave me this to review I wasn’t really sure I wanted to. I guess it had a… Continue Reading →

Terror – The 25th Hour (Century Media)

Over the past 13 years Terror have carved themselves a place as hardcore heavyweights. The two original members; vocalist Scott Vogel and drummer Nick Jett, have persevered through multiple line-ups, labels, six albums, four EP’s and an almost constant touring… Continue Reading →
