Many bands with the same name: 1) Terror, a metalcore/crossover thrash band from Los Angeles, California. The band formed in early 2002. Though the group consider themselves a "hardcore" band, guitarist Doug Weber says Terror, "sounds like all of the old metal bands I used to listen to. It's just not crazy Swedish metal or something, it sounds like old thrash." Terror has been very successful in their time as a band.
Their album One with the Underdogs sold over 40,000 copies. They have also been on tours throughout Europe, Australia, Brazil and Japan. Their newest album, Always the Hard Way reached #10 on Billboard's Heatseekers and #19 on Top Independent Records. Before Terror, vocalist Scott Vogel was known for singing for mid-90s Buffalo bands Slugfest, Despair and Buried Alive.
Vogel is widely known in the scene not just for his tireless efforts to keep hardcore pure and fun, but also for his tendency for bizarre or hilarious on-stage banter, known colloquially as "Vogel-isms". Examples include "We need to elevate the maximum stagedive potential", and "Maximum Ouput...activate the pit!". 2) Terror was a project band formed in 1994. Fulfilling some kind of Gothenburg headbanger fantasy, this was basically Erlandsson, the Björler twins from At the Gates, and dearly-departed Dissection frontman Jon Nödtveidt doing a tight-as-hell take on catchy Terrorizer-style death metal/grind.Make Terror Playlist
