Terrorizer: Hordes of Zombies

Grind terrorists Terrorizer are back with their third album (and first since Jesse Pintado's passing), sticking closely to their tried-and-tested formula of maniacal and frenetic intensity delivered at ridiculous tempos. If you need a visual representation of the sound, then the album cover says it all: decay, mutilation, destruction, and zombies. There are plenty of the dead bastards from priests to punks to police to punters parading menacingly through the post-apocalyptic wasteland towards the innocent viewer, you. Yep, what is contained within is as gruesome and ominous as this nightmarish portrayal of what may not be so far away. Okay, maybe not, but the brutal riffs, bludgeoning drums and gravel-gargling vocals all make for a crushing album that is a distinct improvement over their previous album, Darker Days. New string-strangler Katina Culture does a fine job of mutilating vicious riffs one after another and some impressive lead work out of the neck and stands as a fine addition to the line-up. Together, Terrorizer is an assembly of fine musicians and what they do deliver is thirteen tracks (after what seems to have become the obligatory atmospheric intro) of death/grind brutality that is fiercely consistent. But that's about it. There is not one stand out track; the songs follow similar structures, they're all around the same tempo, and they're difficult to distinguish from each other. And so after a few tracks, like the living dead, the menace begins to limp along in search of life. It's good but not great.
