WE ALL GRAVITATED TOWARD THE NAME CRYSTAL FAIRY BECAUSE SOMEHOW THE WORDS TOGETHER CAN SLICE THROUGH A STEEL WALL

SO SAYS TERI GENDER BENDER – THE STAR BEHIND CRYSTAL FAIRY – A NEW BAND WHO ALSO FEATURE MEMBERS OF THE MELVINS AND AT THE DRIVE-IN. TERRORIZER IS ALL EARS (AND WINGS)

CRYSTAL FAIRY

“I never wanted a deliberate sounding name. People should have to work for it a little,” proclaims Buzz Osborne, one guitar slinging quarter of new sludge rock heroes Crystal Fairy.

While the name may conjure up images of tat shops in Glastonbury, the delicate words serve to juxtapose against the weighty slabs of riff this mighty band produce.

“The filmmaker Sebastián Silva inspired the name into fruition,” elaborates singer Teri Gender Bender, also of Mexican garage punk band Le Butcherettes. “He doesn’t even know this but I’m a fan. We all gravitated toward the name Crystal Fairy because somehow the words together can slice through a steel wall. I hope the band name throws some people off. You would have to be a very serious person to be thrown off by such a nice sounding name!”

About Terrorizer Magazine

I have never come across someone in the metal community who doesn’t love Bolt Thrower – arguably one of the UK’s most well-loved institutions of the last (almost) 30 years. But the band is no more and we are left with a brilliant legacy in the guise of the band’s back catalogue. Their albums conjure up some really amazing memories for me; from seeing them back in the day at shows in Wrexham and Birmingham, but also my teenage years, hanging out with friends and listening to vinyl, smoking fags, drinking tea and marvelling both at the amazing artwork and of course their savage riffs and beats. But out of that band has emerged a fantastic NEW band in the guise of Memoriam, and it’s a friggin’ honour to have them on the cover of this month’s issue. This is not about nostalgia however, this is a new start, a new beginning. I have been privy to hear their debut album for quite a few months now and it’s so good. This is a band who have started a new path of their own and whose members are forging ahead with fresh creativity. Exciting times ahead – and I truly hope you enjoy reading all about their story thus far, straight from their own collective mouths. Elsewhere, as always, there’s a load of amazing interviews about amazing bands both new and established to read through and discover, that’ll keep you from thinking about all the fucked up shit that’s happening world-wide right now. Thanks for picking up a copy – without you, the readers, Terrorizer is nothing! See you next month. Darren Sadler
