NEWS FROM THE FRONTLINE

LEGENDARY TEXAN GRINDERS INSECT WARFARE ARE GEARING UP FOR A REUNION SHOW AT THIS YEAR’S OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL – BUT DON’T GET YOUR HOPES UP FOR A NEW RECORD, BECAUSE AS GUITARIST BEAU BEASLEY TELLS TERRORIZER, THIS IS STRICTLY A ONE-OFF THING

What was the reasoning behind your original breakup, and why did you decide the time was right now to reform?

Beau [Beasley, guitar]: “There came a point where I truly felt I had written the best material I could with Insect Warfare. I was seriously feeling I was repeating myself with my writing and I really didn’t want to just keep releasing record after record of the same sound. We did the noisecore record [2009’s ‘Noise Grind Power Death’], which is still my favorite to this day, and I felt that was a good way to close our discography. I just want to be able to look back and feel we left a strong discography behind and not become one of those bands just pumping out record after record because they can.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always an interesting proposition to see how a band progresses from working with true, cult indie labels to working with multi-national major labels. How money can transform a pure idea into (potentially) a much bigger entity and consumerbased product; can an idea, a sound, an image transcend into the broader palette without being spoiled from its original form? Or does it really matter at all what label a band is on these days? Do you, the reader and listener, truly care if an artist releases music on an indie or via the corporate bigwig? It is all business, no matter who is controlling the purse strings. Why am I pondering this right now? I guess it’s because our cover stars this month are the mighty Purson. No stranger to these pages, it’s wonderful to see Purson really coming of age on their new album, the major label released ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’. It’s a great follow-up to their previous, indie released debut and really captures a band who mean business (again). Nothing has changed in that sense regardless of the label behind the band, and frankly, they were always going to end up on a Terrorizer cover because their music rocks and they thoroughly deserve the accolade. We hope you enjoy their latest story as much as we have enjoyed producing it. As always, the rest of this issue has been a joy to create and features some of the best bands in the extreme and underground metal scenes. Never enough pages as I’d like to write about every band myself and the team love, but it’s entirely flash-in-the-pan/fad-free and that’s the main thing, right?! See you next month!
