I've heard the last two weren't so good, though I'm not sure if I've ever listened myself. Wouldn't hurt to give this new one a shot. I rarely hear new grind.

"World Downfall" was fucking epic, but I honestly haven't listened to anything they've done since. I might actually want to check this out- Terrorizer were one of the few grindcore bands who, in my opinion, totally got it right- ultra fast and brutal, but with great riffs and songwriting.

I dunno, Pete going all gonzo born again Christian has made the lustre fade on anything Terrorizer related.

I definitely think that Jesse being dead is worse than Pete’s blast beats being of the Christian kind.

No Jesse. No Oscar = No Terrorizer. All of the reformation records sucked and it was a damn shame that "Darker Days Ahead" ended up being Jesse Pintado's epitaph.

Jesse being dead is worse for metal period, but that’s not new. I suppose neither is Pete’s B.S. but he’s still around.

I'll give it a listen when it comes out, but I'm not expecting much either. At least Pete hasn't gone full MegaDave yet and started blabbing Fox news nonsense :lol:

:lol: Yes he has, he's fallen way farther down the rabbit hole than Dave ever did. Ever check is Facebook page? He's no ordinary born again Christian, no...he's gone completely fucking bonkers, constantly preaching about "the end times" and saying today's youth are "demonically possessed" and other ridiculous stuff. He seems like the kind of guy who would donate a huge portion of his yearly earnings to some televangelist preacher, or who gets duped by "faith healing" bullshit. He does seem to have chilled out a bit in the last year or so - the religious stuff has become less frequent, but I'm still worried about him. He just seems really "broken" mentally, I can't imagine what happened in his life to cause such a dramatic shift in his world views.

I didn't know about that considering I don't use Facebook. Well fuck :nono:

People often get full hardcore religious as a side effect of battling substance abuse issues; it becomes part of their 12-step recovery for them, turning to a higher power. And the reason they turn to the real hard-line religion is precisely for the rigid discipline it offers them. I don't know if that is the case with Pete Sandoval or not because I don't know his background.

But it is a shame because a lot of these extremists are, well, pretty far out there, even by mainline Christian standards, and their views are so extreme that I would imagine it would be very difficult to enjoy life. Everything is "Evil" or "Satanic" to them, there is this constant fearmongering of hell and condemnation and their view of God is like some kind of celestial Kim Jong-Un- a strict, cruel and vengeful tyrant of a deity.

So with that said, It would be "interesting" (albeit not necessarily in a good way) to see what the lyrics are like on this one, if nothing else. Wouldn't be surprised to hear a lot of gay-bashing, poor and/or immigrant bashing, worlds gonna blow up, guns for Jesus kind of stuff.

Speaking as a former Evangelical Christian fundamentalist (like half the people on this board, lol), you're dead-on. As for the album, hopefully that won't be the case with the lyrics. Would be a real shame to see that happen. If it does, well, when it comes to Christian grindcore, you're better off with Vomitorial Corpulence's final tracks on a six-way split. They even decry Christian extremism in the lyrics.

Hordes of Zombies had some pretty cool songs and riffs but Anthony Rezhawk has one of the most boring voices in the scene and that alone makes the album a total snoozefest. The new album can't be any worse than that.

not sure this will be any good but will give a listen
Pete seems to think his drumming is on par again so would be good to hear that
last couple of albums have passed me by, gave quick listens but nothing had the impact of World Downfall
they'll always be playing second fiddle to it i think

I'm counting on Harrison and Molina to hopefully inject some much needed energy back into this project, because the last two albums were the most tepid and lethargic attempts at "grindcore" I've ever heard. Turned me off of Resistant Culture altogether. Since these two have joined the band, recent setlists completely downplay the last two albums and the set is over 2/3 comprised of World Downfall songs.

I hear the concern about Sandoval's nuttiness seeping into the lyrics, and it's certainly valid for sure. But I don't get the sense that he was this band's lyricist, historically speaking. Rezhawk was the lyricist credited on the last two and the background he apparently comes from with Resistant Culture is pretty leftist, and Sandoval was already known to be chin deep into this religious nonsense at the time of Hordes Of Zombies. Now the Terrorizer lyrics penned by Rezhawk don't go into leftist politics but rather are very generalized apocalyptic/"humanity will be responsible for its own downfall" type stuff, and this sort of generalized topic is what I am expecting from this album. I hesitate to say I'd be surprised if the lyrics go full on evangelical/extreme right, because nothing surprises me these days, but I don't think that'll be the case (if so, just one more album for me to not waste my time on).

I think if anything, Sandoval should think about how his drums sound on this record. Grindcore is a punk-rooted genre, and the overly processed/triggered drum tones on the last two albums go completely against that spirit. Just...yuck.

Yeah, I don't have the highest of hopes for this, but I'm not outright dismissing it either. I'm approaching this one with caution, for various reasons.

If anyone finds a riff on here, let me know and I might check it out. I'm not falling for it again like on the previous two records.
Ok, Jesse is no longer with us, but Lock Up managed to find a worthy replacement so why not Terrorizer?

Man both Terrorizer's need to just pack it up. Yeah, World Downfall was good but that will be turning 30 next year. But metal has this terrible trend of throwing money at veterans of the scene when they couldn't be giving that to so many better younger acts.
