While some of metal's most iconic illustrators such as Dan Seagrave, Derek Riggs or Andreas Marschall have no problem confessing they weren’t the biggest metal fans in the first place, Mark Riddick is the very opposite. As far back as 1991 with the band Excrescent (along with his twin brother Mike), this massive underground metal maniac was trying to cut it, while in parallel drawing gruesome scenery inspired by gore films and comics for flyers or fanzines. Almost a quarter of a century later, Riddick’s pen is busy as ever with an instantly recognisable and mostly monochrome style that has graced over one hundred illustrations for albums and EPs alike.

Although he just turned 40 last June, he’s also kept active on the musical front with various studio-only projects. Among them, Fetid Zombie is by far the most prolific. This true labour of love that sees him adopting the producer, engineer, musician, songwriter and illustrator roles in one has given birth to ten splits and six albums in less then nine years. Still, new album ‘Epicedia’ is probably is the most diverse of them all.

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are only a handful of bands that I absolutely love, have really made a massive impact in my life and, ultimately, don’t let me down when it comes to live shows, recordings or attitudes to life. The Dillinger Escape Plan are one of those bands and it’s an honour to have them grace the cover for the second time while I steer the good ship Terrorizer. I have fond memories of TDEP – from the first time I Interviewed them for another metal magazine in their early days, right through to the last show I recently saw of theirs at the Old Blue Last in London at the tail end of the Summer. Always faultless, it’s safe to say they are going out on a high and while few bands will ever step up to the plate like Dillinger do every night, their legacy and recorded output will last forever, and for that we should be thankful. Kevin Stewart-Panko first interviewed them for these sacred pages, so it was only right that he should interview them one final time. I hope you enjoy his (and the bands’) words and do crank out their new album at the same time – it’s nothing short of breathtaking. Until next month… Darren Sadler
