“We’ve had a few line-up changes and were struggling to write music in the style we used to. It was time to move on. I think if the line-up hadn’t changed we wouldn’t have ended up with what we have now. We have had some short-lived members. John [Cooke] from Corrupt Moral Altar played with us and a couple of lads from The Bendal Interlude for like a week,” says Iron Witch bassist Rick Owen when discussing how the Scouse quintet – completed by guitarists Chris Fane and Mark Hughes, drummer Will Adams and vocalist Dave Mould – have found stability after going through an almost revolving door of member changes before settling on the current personnel. After releasing a couple of EPs and 7”s and forming crusty hardcore side-project Siege Mentality, the Witch are now proud owners of their debut album proper ‘A Harrowed Dawn’, a muscular collection of sludge with eerie undertones and more subtle textures than the group were initially known for.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Devin Townsend: it’s a name synonymous with heavy and extreme metal, and also a name associated with the occasional foray into acoustic and country albums, not to mention albums featuring coffee loving puppets! And of course, who could forget his very own dedication to this here mag he created a few years ago with his mighty ‘Terrorizer’ song – only Onslaught had ever done a homage to a metal mag before this, if memory serves me correctly. There’s something for everyone, which is something rare in many musician’s repertoires. Devin’s enjoyed and created a rather unique musical path and 25 albums in, it’s awesome to see that this month, there are no signs of him letting up. Read all about what he’s been up to over the past few years and how he’s feeling about life in our cover story. Elsewhere this issue is jam packed with a delectable array of quality bands including plenty of UK bands – Akercocke, The Wounded Kings, Slomatics, Coltsblood, and Iron Witch – and plenty of worldwide ones too. Extreme music, no boundaries! See you next month. Darren Sadler
