BACK TO THE ROOTS

MINNEAPOLIS CRUST PUNKS WAR//PLAGUE ARE CONSTANTLY STRIVING TO RAISE THEIR GAME WITHOUT LOSING TRACK OF THEIR TEENAGE ROOTS. NEW ALBUM ‘CARRION’ JUST RAISED THE BAR AGAIN

“Each record has its differences and its similarities, but we work to raise the bar every time we write a new album,” begins War//Plague guitarist, Andy Lefton, of their new album, ‘Carrion’.

“I think [previous album] ‘On A Darker Dawn’ was a great record, but it lacked a bit in production, especially how we approached the writing, and the magnitude of sound we were ultimately striving for. The biggest challenge for us has always been finding the right place to record. But we’ve learned along the way and feel we’ve finally honed in on who can get the proper sound for us.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

Everyone loves vinyl. Whether people actually play it or simply have it on the shelves to look at and appreciate the artwork in all its glory, while listening to the audio through devices however, is another matter. This month sees a new vinyl release that will ensure that people will actually play their new 12 inches of black stuff. It’s the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ hologram soundtrack vinyl. The week this issue went to print I was fortunate enough to attend a playback of this ingenious (and extremely geeky, yet cool) release. And while I soaked up the atmosphere of Abbey Road’s Studio 2, feeling all the creativity of the room and the vibe contained within, it really dawned on me why this is so special. Star Wars is legendary. Many of us have grown up with the films from an early age and it becomes part of your DNA, without a doubt. Its music is also special, I challenge any band out there to have the balls to cover John Williams’ compositions. And now the new film’s soundtrack gives the vinyl collector a reason to play their record and geek out at the same time. What makes it special? Tristan Duke’s holograms of both the Millennium Falcon and a Tie Fighter that magically appear above the vinyl while the brilliant musicality of John Williams’ composition blasts out of your speakers. Genius! It elevates the whole audio and magical experience to unchartered new heights in the musical world. It’s a soundtrack brimming with depth and of course, it’s affinity with the metal community is inescapable – after all metal is the ultimate Dark Side. So while I go back to my sci-fi world, I’ll let you enjoy this month’s issue! I have loved Nails for years and it’s an honour to have them on this month’s cover. Enjoy reading their story as well as a heap of other great features, news and reviews! See you next month Darren Sadler
