Terror – Keepers of the Faith

NAME: Terror
ALBUM: Keepers of the Faith
DATE: 30August2010

LABEL: Century Media


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Audible brutality, imported from California.

LOCATION: Los Angeles, California

LINE UP: Scott Vogel (vocals), Martin Stewart (guitar), Nick Jett (drums), David Wood (bass), Jordan Posner (guitar).

WHAT’S THE STORY?: Terror have established themselves as proficient exponents of the hardcore genre and their latest opus, `Keepers of the Faith’, will only reinforce their strong reputation.

`Your Enemies Are Mine’ opens the record with the three elementary attributes of Terror: frantic riffs, rapid drumming and abrasive vocals. Whilst these features may lack originality, the band’s lack of experimentation cannot act as a disdainful criticism. Instead, Terror’s uncompromising nature serves to enhance their lyrical resolve. `Defiance’ is a commanding example of this, as it juxtaposes unrelenting hardcore with inspirational vocals to create a venomous, yet passionate final product.

Unfortunately, `You’re Caught’ slows the album’s tempo. The track retains front man, Scott Vogel’s aggressive vocals but fails to recapture Terror’s natural intensity. `Dead Wrong’ thankfully restores order, and includes a frantic guitar solo that is sure to whip crowds into a frenzy.

There is a scarce amount of variety within `Keepers of the Faith’, which may discourage new listeners from repeated listens. Nevertheless, seasoned fans of the Californians will enjoy the album’s collection of merciless hardcore songs.

In a musical landscape inundated with trends, Terror have remained loyal to their roots. Also, their newest release will unconditionally lure gig attendees into the mosh pit; by accomplishing this, Terror are completing their objective.

SOUNDS LIKE: Sick Of It All, Hatebreed, Bane

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You enjoy traditional hardcore, wear camo shorts and regard Henry Rollins as the messiah.
