Terrorizer 270 – Purson, Cult of Luna, Kvelertak, Discharge, Nails and more!

By on 4 May 2016

The New Terrorizer issue 270 is out right now, and includes a free Fear candy CD. You can order an old-school print copy of Terrorizer 270 here. Terrorizer editor Darren Sadler will now tell you more about what is in the new magazine…

270 cover 300It’s always an interesting proposition to see how a band progresses from working with true, cult indie labels to working with multi-national major labels. How money can transform a pure idea into (potentially) a much bigger entity and consumer based product; can an idea, a sound, an image transcend into the broader palette without being spoiled from its original form? Or does it really matter at all what label a band is on these days?

Do you, the reader and listener, truly care if an artist releases music on an indie or via the corporate bigwig? It is all business, no matter who is controlling the purse strings. Why am I pondering this right now? I guess it’s because our cover stars this month are the mighty Purson. No stranger to these pages, it’s wonderful to see Purson really coming of age on their new album, the major label released ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’.

It’s a great follow-up to their previous, indie released debut and really captures a band who mean business (again). Nothing has changed in that sense regardless of the label behind the band, and frankly, they were always going to end up on a Terrorizer cover because their music rocks and they thoroughly deserve the accolade. We hope you enjoy their latest story as much as we have enjoyed producing it.

As always, the rest of this issue has been a joy to create and features some of the best bands in the extreme and underground metal scenes. Never enough pages as I’d like to write about every band myself and the team love, but it’s entirely flash-in-the-pan/fad-free and that’s the main thing, right?!

See you next month!
