THE BERZERKER

Betrayal’ FROM ‘Disimulate’

(EARACHE, 2002)

King Parrot drummer Todd Hansen was a live member of these deranged grindcore savages, so this sound be simple enough… Youngy [vocals]: “I’ve never heard it! Maybe Zyklon or something?”

They’re Australian.

Youngy: “Deströyer 666? Bestial Warlust? Gospel Of The Horns? Anatomy? Ah, The Berzerker!”

You got it in the end!

Youngy: “That shows how much attention I’ve been paying… Fucking hell! I got one! Can you make the second one The Beatles or something? We knew Toddy from The Berserker but he was also in Rome and Devolved so when Rome split up he was the natural guy for us. They split up and he joined King Parrot to tour the U.S. with us that year.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are certain times in history that will always remain special in your heart throughout your life. People often talk about the first time they have seen a certain band and I am no exception. It’s been a blessing to have had the opportunity to see so many bands in my life and, if pushed, I could recount many. After a number of false starts to actually see Neurosis in a live setting, I remember finally getting the chance to see them for the first time at Dudley JB’s with Today Is The Day (featuring Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor, who would later form Mastodon) and Voivod (with Eric Forrest). The hall was cavernous, certainly not overly busy in terms of punters, and yet the sonics that blasted through the speakers that night could not have sounded any more apocalyptic. Truly jawdropping and, frankly, life-changing. I know I am not the only one who has experienced similar and for that reason, it is a pleasure to celebrate Neurosis’ 30th anniversary with a cover feature that covers the band’s continuing career. José Carlos Santos has excelled himself as always in producing a fantastic article with Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till and I truly hope you love reading it. Elsewhere it’s always a pleasure to chat to Karl Willetts from Bolt Thrower and now of his new band Memoriam – please flick to the news pages to read about the new band now! And of course, plenty of other cool-as-fuck bands to read about and enjoy. See you next month! Adios DARREN SADLER
