Terrorizer – Officially Ink Deal with Century Media Records – New Album Set for Summer `06
Legendary grindcore pioneers TERRORIZER, have signed to Century Media Records worldwide. Released in 1989, the bands highly acclaimed and influential debut album “World Downfall” (Earache Records) took the metal scene by storm. With an as yet unheard of aggression the band became a cult institution even though they quickly disbanded. Following the break up the main founding members, drummer Pete Sandoval and guitarist Jesse Pintado, moved on to join legendary extreme bands MORBID ANGEL and NAPALM DEATH respectively.
The band remained popular through the next 16 years with newer acts citing inspiration from “World Downfall”. The massive amount of available bootleg recordings and band merchandise as well as rumours of a follow-up album kept TERRORIZER‘s name alive. Now, after what might seem like an eternity of silence, the band have signed a worldwide deal with Robert Kampf, owner of Century Media. Sondoval and Pintado have already started working on a new studio album, to be recorded early 2006 in Florida with producer Juan “Punchy” Gonzalez (MORBID ANGEL, UNHOLY GHOST, etc.) for a Summer 2006 release
“After long negotiations with several labels, it’s official: TERRORIZER and World Management are happy to announce the new album will be on Century Media,” commented the band.
