Ben Carter Terrorizer Takeover - Mixtape

As part of his Terrorizer Takeover, Evile‘s Ben Carter curated his ultimate festival mixtape, take it away Ben.

“There are some songs that, when you’re at a festival, whether you’re completely drunk, totally stoned, vomiting into a hedge or desperately trying not to shit-yourself-out-of-yourself; will make you stand up and realise why we suffer through so much in order to praise at the altar of all things metal. These are my songs to make any festival experience complete, and any neck wrought with agony – enjoy!”

CARCASS  – ‘Buried Dreams’ FROM ‘HEARTWORK’ (EARACHE 1993)

“Waking up on day one of any festival is always hard depending on what happened the night before, but Carcass always sort your head out. What better way to start any festival experience than with a song about lost aspirations and losing all hope…?”

SLAYER – ‘Angel Of Death’ FROM ‘REIGN IN BLOOD’ (DEF JAM 1986)

“Just because….its fucking Slayer….. you don’t need a reason!! Except that its FUCKING SLAAAYEEERRRRRRR!!!”

MACHINE HEAD – ‘Davidian’ FROM ‘BURN MY EYES’ (ROADRUNNER 1994)

“‘LET FREEDOM RING WITH THE SHOTGUN BLAAAAAAAST!!!’. Nuff  Said.”

OVERKILL – ‘Elimination’ FROM ‘THE YEARS OF DECAY’ (ATLANTIC/MEGAFORCE 1989)

“Cue insanity in any circle pit, and instant drinking games in any campsite. Beer Bong works especially well with this track!”

SEPULTURA – ‘Refuse/Resist’ FROM ‘CHAOS A.D.’ (ROADRUNNER 1993)

“Just the sheer tribal feel of this powerhouse of a track is sure to get the blood of any discerning metallian pumping. If it doesn’t…. you’re obviously dead inside.”

PANTERA – ‘Domination’ FROM ‘COWBOYS FROM HELL’ (ATCO 1990)

“I can’t ever remember having as much fun than when drinking coldies with Mike Alexander somewhere at a festival in Germany whilst this was playing out the PA. I had 4 bottles in each hand, and was drinking like it was my last day on earth. These are now the standard rules when this song comes on. Fact.”

DEICIDE – ‘Once Upon The Cross’ FROM ‘ONCE UPON THE CROSS’ (ROADRUNNER 1995)

“Metal Claw – Check. Epic Beard – Check. Ridiculously evil voices…. Check. Drum fuelled, satanistic destruction…..CHECK. Ok –  go fuckin’ crazy!!!”

JUDAS PRIEST – ‘Painkiller’ FROM ‘PAINKILLER’ (COLUMBIA 1990)

“Guaranteed to get thousands of metal-hungry festival goers all air-drumming in unison, and likewise singing along to Mr. Halford’s ridiculously ear-shattering vocals. What better way to bring people together??”

STEEL PANTHER – ‘Death To All But Metal’ FROM ‘FEEL THE STEEL’ (UNIVERSAL 2009)

“Jokes aside, and with tongue firmly in-cheek, this song sums up what the metal festival experience is all about – you’re there for one reason and one reason only. Ripped spandex and tassles optional…”

DIO – ‘Stand Up And Shout’ FROM ‘HOLY DIVER’ (VERTIGO 1983)

“No metal festival would be complete without homage to one of the genre’s most entertaining and tenacious performers to ever walk a stage. Paying tribute to the King should be part of any festival-goer’s itinerary.”
