LEVELING THE LAND

IT’S A NEW CHAPTER FOR MIKE HILL AND HIS APOCALYPTIC JUGGERNAUT TO MBS, WITH A NEW ALBUM, LABEL, LINEUP AND APPROACH TO CREATIVITY. TERROR IZER IS ALL EARS…

TOMBS

It’s a time of great change and overhaul in the world of Brooklyn, NY’s Tombs. In every direction vocalist/guitarist Mike Hill swivels his head, it seems that the wheels of transformation are in motion and circling around every waking moment of the band’s de facto leader and lone original member. He tells Terrorizer about how, in the near future, he’s likely going to have to move from the increasingly gentrified Greenpoint neighbourhood to avoid the metropolis’ crowds and pricey housing that he moved to avoid in the first place. Casual conversation reveals that he’s been home less than 48 hours after a tour opening for Darkest Hour and Ringworm for which he assembled the band’s touring line-up virtually at the last minute (“None of the people who played on the new album were present on the tour we just finished,” he explains with surprising serenity). On the positive side of the coin, the band he formed a decade ago this month release its fourth and most adventurous album via Metal Blade after EP releases on defunct labels like Level-Plane and Black Box Recordings and three albums with Relapse. There was even a brief, but successful, dalliance with independence which produced last years’ ‘All Empires Fall’ EP. As well, even though he’s surpassed the big ‘4-0’ chronologically, Mike shows no sign of slowing down, which effectively immunises him against the second guessing that often comes crashing around members of his age bracket.

About Terrorizer Magazine

I can still recall the phone call I had from Earache’s label manager Dan about this incredibly awesome Polish band the label had just signed called Decapitated. The enthusiasm that he conveyed down the phone line was infectious and although I was working for a more mainstream metal/rock mag at the time, and bands like Decapitated were on the periphery of the magazine’s demographic, I was excited to check them out. Sure enough the sheer power, professionalism and technical brilliance that pummelled out of the office speakers was enough to have me (and the office) hooked in a nanosecond. That was, of course, back in 2000 when Decapitated had just released their incredible (and still awesome) ‘Winds Of Creation’. Fast-forward seventeen years and even though Lady Luck has not, in many ways, been on the band’s side, Decapitated have continued to push their own creative boundaries and their new album ‘Anticult’ is testament to this. It’s a pleasure to have them grace Terrorizer’s new cover and we hope you enjoy reading about the album’s creation and everything that’s been going on in their world. Elsewhere, we’ve put all our collective blood, sweat, tears and breakdowns into ensuring we have all bases covered in the extreme world. It’s a volatile time right now, but music continues to bring plenty of pleasure, so indulge in it as much as you can! See you next month! Darren Sadler
