Terrorizer sign with Earache Records, prepare new album

Los Angeles, California grindcore outfit Terrorizer have signed a worldwide recording deal with Earache Records, the same label that released the band's 1989 debut album. (Shortly after releasing their debut LP, the group broke up and its members went on to play in Morbid Angel and Napalm Death, among others. Terrorizer reformed in 2005.)

Terrorizer are currently working on a new album.

Drummer and founding member Pete Sandoval comments: "For me, this isn't just and exciting and enthusiastic moment in my life to once again work with Dig Pearson, Al and the rest of the Earache staff, but it somehow also brings back strong and unforgettable memories from the early 90s and so on. We can never forget classic albums like Terrorizer's 'World Downfall', and Morbid Angel's 'Altars of Madness' and 'Blessed Are the Sick', which helped us grow musically and mentally, and helped shape and prepare the road for tons of other new young bands to follow and succeed. We did it together with Earache! So I'm looking forward to a new powerful and majestic Terrorizer release and for a positive, great and successful relationship Earache. Thank you guys!"

Earache Records founder and managing director Digby Pearson offers: "Terrorizer was one of the first wave of bands I worked with and were true pioneers of grind, back when only a handful of musicians even played extreme metal. The band lasted for too short a time because two members quickly joined other bands (Napalm Death and Morbid Angel) who both began to tour the world and never looked back. Working with Terrorizer once again in 2021... Finally... It's their time to take centre stage on the grindcore world they helped created."

Too bad no one takes Earache seriously anymore after their reputation for not paying their bands, in addition to signing nothing but bands that sound like a bargain bin Buckcherry in recent years

1. "World Downfall" is the only thing worth a damn by this group 2. Funny to see Earache releasing extreme metal again after catering to butt rock these past few years 3. This is going to suck 4. R.I.P. Jesse Pintado

LOL, NOW they're doing extreme music, LOL. Can't wait to read the social media post in 2 years with the band whining they got ripped off.
