Terrorizer 248 – Pure Fucking Mayhem!

By on 22 April 2014

#248 mayhem Cover digiIn May’s bumper edition of Terrorizer, we make you an offer you can’t refuse. We dive into the madness that is MAYHEM, discovering why the Godfathers of black metal are still a family in 2014, how their first album for seven years came into being, why they are more interested in mind control than Satan nowadays and how they keep the family honour strong.

We talk to DOWN frontman Phil Anselmo about the stoner metal legends’ injection of fresh blood, find out why INSOMNIUM run maritime cultural festivals when not playing melancholy metal, wander the corridors of power with the surprisingly political EPICA, and talk to Chuck Schuldiner’s former DEATH bandmates to remember how ‘Leprosy’ changed extreme metal’s history.

ANIMALS AS LEADERS mainman Tosin Abasi explains why even instrumental jazz metal can be artistically restricting – and why he wants to do other things. We talk to IMPALED NAZARENE about why they are getting political but not abandoning all things goat, Kirk Windstein from CROWBAR undertakes our Hard Of Hearing test and reveals why he and Eyehategod used to record lawnmowers, and TORCHE check in from the studio.

Nastier-than-life sludgers THOU explain why they’re planning to go acoustic, ABORTED head honcho Sven de Caluwé explains why they never really changed course, the dark principles behind new black metal masters SCHAMMASCH are explored, and we get boozy with EDGUY before getting spiritual with SABBATH ASSEMBLY.

And that’s far from all, as this full-to-the-brim new Terrorizer also includes:

WHITECHAPEL
DEVIL YOU KNOW
PORTRAIT
A STORM OF LIGHT
ENTHRONED
LORD MANTIS
DREAD SOVEREIGN
