WE GOT IN TOUCH WITH SAM TO FIND OUT MORE…

“I’d say I’m pretty curious about people – they’re the fabric of life,” Sam explains when asked what drew him to portrait photography initially. “I’ve always had an interest in documentary photography and I tend to gravitate towards projects that have a social aspect narrative… I just think people are the most interesting thing to shoot.

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!
