Ahead of his massive UK tour, TERRORI ZER had a few beers whilst waxing lyrical with TIM ‘RIPPER ’ OWENS about endorsements, side projects with Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson and appearing on American reality TV shows…



“The thing about that ‘Bar Rescue’ show was, they called us. We didn’t call them. 75% of what you see on that show isn’t real. They would make us walk through a door four or five times just to get the right shot. They ripped on us for the kitchen being dirty but they wouldn’t let us clean it the night before, then they come in the next day and are like ‘look what this looks like’. People should be smart enough to realise we never failed a health inspection. When they come in and film the show, you don’t know what it will look like. They gear the show to look a certain way. We weren’t losing like they made us say but they made great changes to the place and made the stage better. The host Jon Taffer was cool too, but it is not representative of how things were.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s safe to say most of the writing team this month are suffering post-Roadburn blues. It happens every year without a shadow of a doubt. If you want to read up on all the fun you either witnessed yourselves or sadly missed out on, for whatever reason, please turn to the live section of the magazine and bathe in some of the highlights of this year’s event. We also have some killer features in this issue, and as always, it’s a battle to feature every band Team Terrorizer loves. The good news is, what’s inside is a broad spectrum of bands who have long-established relationships with the magazine and with you guys too. Dying Fetus grace the cover, which we are very honoured about, and elsewhere there’s some killer interviews with Oxbow, who have returned after a decade; horror rocker Wednesday 13, Schammasch talk about their new opus, VoiVod get nostalgic with us and Vallenfyre have frankly blown the roof down at Tezza Towers with their album of the year contender. So what are you waiting for – stop reading my notes and get to the real action! See you next month! Adios
