Today is the day TEMPLE OF THE MORNING STAR

WITH TODAY IS THE DAY’S HALLUCINATORY MASTERPIECE, ‘TEMPLE OF THE MORNING STAR’, RECEIVING THE VINYL REISSUE TREATMENT FOR ITS TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY, BAND LEADER STEVE AUSTIN TAKES HIMSELF BACK TO DARKER TIMES

DARK RECOLLECTIONS

So, here we are, twenty years on from ‘Temple Of The Morning Star’, and also 25 years on from the formation of Today Is The Day. Some of us might feel terribly old by these realisations, but hey, listening to that harrowing, tortured record already made us feel a million years old when it came out. Today Is The Day have always been a completely unique-sounding band, a mix of AmRep noise rock (where they bubbled up from), grind, noise, sludge and whatever else you might find in the bone yard of their sound throughout their amazing, and still ongoing, career. But ‘Temple…’ has always felt a little bit special, that universal classic every top band has in their discography, so it makes sense that we celebrate it now.

About Terrorizer Magazine

I bloody love The Obsessed’s new album – it’s packed with grooves and riffs and isn’t one-dimensional in the slightest. I recall getting psyched when Relapse announced they had signed the band and since the news landed, plotting with the label about putting Wino and his band on the cover. It seems like aeons since they recorded the album last summer, but as Wino explains in our cover feature, a lot has been going on since that recording session. Go and read all about it now! And if you haven’t heard the album, please go check it out – it’s well worth the twenty-plus year wait since ‘The Church Within’. I always remember Wino and co. sticking out like a sore thumb when I saw them in Nottingham’s Rock City opening for Prong and Life Of Agony in support of that album – a sea of audience confusion greeted them, but the drive and honesty that oozed from the trio that night had a long-lasting impression on me, and I cannot wait to see them on our shores again soon, I hope. So, as always enjoy the issue in your hands. Every month Kez and the writing crew pour blood, sweat and tears into the issue to make it the best we can. It’s tough times out there, we have no crowd-funding hype machines behind us, just passion, belief and, frankly, stubbornness. And of course, enjoyment in the music. Take care and see you next month!
