Grinding supergroup LOCK UP have had their fair share of extreme metal royalty passing through their ranks over the years, and their upcoming fourth album sees KEVIN SHARP stepping up to the mic – but as the former Brutal Truth frontman tell s Terrorizer, making this record has hardly been a walk in the park…


It’s like the passing of a comet, every once in a while the musicians who happen to constitute Lock Up at that particular moment in time – i.e., mainstays Shane Embury and Nick Barker, already fully established guitarist Anton Reisenegger and a legendary vocalist of choice, who now happens to be the great Kevin Sharp of Brutal Truth fame following Tomas Lindberg and Peter Tägtgren – have a little free time from their very busy schedules, and another moment of supreme, sublime chaos is born. You’d think age might have mellowed them out by now and that Lock Up might have degenerated into a nostalgic, feel-good meeting of old friends, but you’d be much mistaken. We saw a few pictures of the recording of ‘Demonization’, Lock Up’s first album since 2011’s ‘Necropolis Transparent’, where Kevin and Shane were pulling funny faces at the camera, and we innocently asked the former if those sessions were fun.

About Terrorizer Magazine

I have never come across someone in the metal community who doesn’t love Bolt Thrower – arguably one of the UK’s most well-loved institutions of the last (almost) 30 years. But the band is no more and we are left with a brilliant legacy in the guise of the band’s back catalogue. Their albums conjure up some really amazing memories for me; from seeing them back in the day at shows in Wrexham and Birmingham, but also my teenage years, hanging out with friends and listening to vinyl, smoking fags, drinking tea and marvelling both at the amazing artwork and of course their savage riffs and beats. But out of that band has emerged a fantastic NEW band in the guise of Memoriam, and it’s a friggin’ honour to have them on the cover of this month’s issue. This is not about nostalgia however, this is a new start, a new beginning. I have been privy to hear their debut album for quite a few months now and it’s so good. This is a band who have started a new path of their own and whose members are forging ahead with fresh creativity. Exciting times ahead – and I truly hope you enjoy reading all about their story thus far, straight from their own collective mouths. Elsewhere, as always, there’s a load of amazing interviews about amazing bands both new and established to read through and discover, that’ll keep you from thinking about all the fucked up shit that’s happening world-wide right now. Thanks for picking up a copy – without you, the readers, Terrorizer is nothing! See you next month. Darren Sadler
