"THE 25TH HORROR"
"THE 25TH HOUR" is the newest offering from Los Angeles, California's Hardcore
veterans TERROR. These guys formed back in 2002 and have risen to be one of the best
Hardcore bands in the scene. This new release is fourteen tracks that come in around
twenty three minutes. I grew up as a skateboarder in the 80s, but I was a Metalhead and
everyone I skated with was either into Punk or Hardcore, so I got exposed to a lot of it.
This grew my love for both genres and expanded my musical tastes. Even though
TERROR wasn't born until 2002 they have that killer Hardcore sound of those days. I
love how they mesh together the styles of the West Coast of California Hardcore with the
dirty East Coast styles of New York, Boston, Philly & New Jersey. I love both styles
and these guys do it better than just about everyone. If you like your Hardcore pissed off,
dirty and very aggressive than TERROR would be the band for you. I love the gang
chanting vocal parts the best. If you were to take the styles of SICK OF IT ALL,
MADBALL, EMMURE, DOWNSET, 100 DEMONS, AGNOSTIC FRONT, JUDGE
& CRO-MAGS and merge them together you'd get TERROR. I know I listed a bunch of
Hardcore bands, but come on people, break down those walls and open up your minds.
Just because your a Metalhead, doesn't mean you can't listen to other styles as well. You
are missing out on some great bands. I think a lot of Death Metal fans would love these
guys! Every aggressive music fan should have a some TERROR in their lives!!!
