Show Review: Terror

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music, News, Reviews, Shows with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2014 by Randy

Stick To Your Guns is probably one of the biggest names in hardcore today as was showcased on “Fuck The Message Tour.”  They made sure that this would be the tour to see for hardcore fans, new and old. The lineup consisted of hard hitting new comers to the genre like Expire, Hundredth, and Counterparts; along with old school underground hardcore veterans – Terror. Start to finish this lineup delivered!

Victory Records’ hardcore pride and joy, Terror, have been making music since the late 90’s and haven’t missed a beat after all these years. Their albums deliver on a consistent basis and their live shows deliver tenfold.  You would never guess these guys are considered the “old dudes” on most tours because they have the same passion and energy as the up and coming bands.  While in Cleveland, Terror played a little bit of everything…old favorites such as “You Can’t Break Me,” to the title track off their recent record “Live by the Code,” and the crowd ate up every minute of it.

If you enjoy everything from slam dancing to stage dives, this tour was for you.  Don’t worry…if you weren’t a witness, you better check for the closest Warped Tour date and go see Terror as they will be touring all summer on the festival.  Also, regardless if it’s at your local record store or at a show, make sure you pick up a physical copy of “Live by the code.”  Be sure to check out the album’s artwork and indulge in some killer hardcore punk!
