Before you freak out at the overwhelming amount of music Heavydeath have recorded since their inception three years ago – twelve demos, four EPs, one single and one full-length prior to the new one – remember that behind this Swedish lot you’ll find seasoned veteran and multiinstrumentalist Nicklas Rudolfsson, a man who has never had the words ‘writer’s block’ in his vocabulary. Not only has he played in half-a-dozen black/thrash/ death bands in the ’90s and in the early ’00s (such as Sacramentum, Deathwitch, Swordmaster or, more recently, Necrocurse) but he also released no less than eleven full-lengths with his main band Runemagick in between 1998 and 2007, a period during which they evolved from quite a straight-forward and classic sounding death metal style to something doomier, far more sinister and almost ritualistic. Considering the very doomish pace of Heavydeath’s material and that Rudolfsson handles guitar, vocals and most of the songwriting here too, it’s hard not to see a distinct lineage here and Nicklas doesn’t disagree.

About Terrorizer Magazine

The first time I saw Kreator was at a venue in Birmingham called Goldwyns. It was around the time they had just released ‘Coma Of Souls’. Death were also on the bill mysteriously without Chuck, but that was another story. It was 1990 and even back then, Kreator were one of the best thrash bands out there, having already honed their craft on some of the most extreme (and now classic) releases such as ‘Extreme Aggression’. Writing this editorial at the arse end of 2016, Kreator will welcome in 2017 with another stonkingly awesome thrash metal record that once again shows you can’t keep an old dog down. Mille and crew sound as vital now as they ever did in their youth and it’s a pleasure and an honour to have them grace our cover. I hope you enjoy reading about their new album and what keeps the German tank pummelling forward. Elsewhere this issue feels like a great mix of the old and new guard of extreme music gracing these hallowed pages – and what brings them all together is the quality of the music everyone is creating. Some seriously good records are coming out right now and a New Year is only just beginning! Looking ahead, it’s safe to say 2017 will continue to be a strong year for music and we look forward to traversing through the best of it with you. Until next time! Adios Darren Sadler
