If you ask Michel Jonker himself, he’ll be the first one to admit he was first and foremost a punk and hardcore guy that just happened to be playing metal from the late ’90s onwards more than the other way around. But as a drummer for Absorbed until 2003 and then Massive Assault, he actively helped keep the original spirit of Swedish death metal alive in the Netherlands. So when he went solo (in the truest sense of the word as to this day – he records and performs all the instruments in the studio and has a full line-up for live activities) in 2009 as Entrapment, it’s no surprise that this ingredient went into the pot too, though he’s the first to underline that he hasn’t used the (in)famous HM-2 effect pedal. “But yeah, we have tons of D-beat parts and it’s no secret that classic Swedish death-metal was very inspired by punk and hardcore,” he laughs. Then again, if you want to stick to the whole Swedish analogy, one could say that Entrapment’s third full-length ‘Through Realms Unseen’ is probably their own ‘Massive Killing Capacity’, as a reference to Dismember’s controversial fulllength when they started taking distance from their initial sound.

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
