Terrorizer #253: Electric Wizard & Doom Special

By on 4 November 2014

253First of all, we’d like to extend our most sincere apologies to all our subscribers who have been kept waiting for the past few issues. We have had a number of production issues this year which have meant that a large number of the magazines were effectively stuck in limbo, and we can completely understand your frustration in having to wait so long to receive them. We have all been working hard to get these problems resolved and thankfully, issues #252 and #253 will be sent out simultaneously to all subscribers before the end of the week. You should have received #251 already (some overseas territories are still waiting for their deliveries, unfortunately), but if you haven’t please make us aware of this and we’ll endeavour to get a copy of that one out to you as soon as possible.

As for #253, we’ve got a veritable doom feast for you with this issue as Terrorizer investigates the turbulent circumstances behind ELECTRIC WIZARD’s monolithic new album, ‘Time To Die’. We caught up with frontman Jus Oborn to find out more about how the Dorset doom legends returned from the void with one of their strongest albums to date.

We also caught up with YOB to discuss how their transcendental, evocative take on the genre has opened new doors for them, found out why Dylan Carlson considers the new EARTH album to be his “midlife crisis record”, get an exclusive studio report from the mighty GOATSNAKE and discovered exactly why WITCH MOUNTAIN vocalist Uta Plotkin has decided to leave the band at the pinnacle of their success.

And it’s not just a delicious dose of doom we’ve got for this issue; we also look into CANNIBAL CORPSE’s relationship with gore, quiz DECAPITATED on their second post-reunion album, interrogate OPETH on their decision to saunter further down the prog path and anticipate the return of Warrel Dane’s pre-Nevermore power metal act SANCTUARY.

We also delve into the cryptic, evil word of USBM monsters NIGHTBRINGERS, find out why DARK FORTRESS are looking to the skies for inspiration and get to the bottom of all the drastic changes that have occurred in the FALLOCH camp over the past three years.

We test RED FANG’s metal knowledge, find out why XERATH have overcome their ongoing guitarist troubles and speak to PROFOUND LORE mastermind Chris Bruni about the label’s ethos and new releases from PALLBEARER, COFFINWORM and more.

And if that’s still not enough, this month’s Terrorizer also features:

ORANGE GOBLIN

IDES OF GEMINI

THRESHOLD

DEATH PENALTY

BLACK MOTH

BASTARD SAPLING
