Words: Olivier ‘Zoltar’ Badin, Serena Cherry, Jay Hampshire

There’s no bitterness in Neil Burkdoll’s words, although he would have every right to be so. He initially struck out with Fatalist in 2006, in perfect sync with the ever-recycling times we’re living in when a whole new generation were (re) discovering the nastiness of the HM-2 pedal and Swedish d-beat. With ex-Exhumed guitarist Was Caley in tow, the future looked bright when they signed on to John McEntee from Incantation’s label Ibex Moon in 2008 – even though the resulting album (‘The Depths Of Inhumanity’) was actually just their sole demo remastered with four extra tracks. And soon after, not only did Ibex Moon stop its activities but Wes split as well, leading the band to go on hiatus after an attempt to carry on with two new members.

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are only a handful of bands that I absolutely love, have really made a massive impact in my life and, ultimately, don’t let me down when it comes to live shows, recordings or attitudes to life. The Dillinger Escape Plan are one of those bands and it’s an honour to have them grace the cover for the second time while I steer the good ship Terrorizer. I have fond memories of TDEP – from the first time I Interviewed them for another metal magazine in their early days, right through to the last show I recently saw of theirs at the Old Blue Last in London at the tail end of the Summer. Always faultless, it’s safe to say they are going out on a high and while few bands will ever step up to the plate like Dillinger do every night, their legacy and recorded output will last forever, and for that we should be thankful. Kevin Stewart-Panko first interviewed them for these sacred pages, so it was only right that he should interview them one final time. I hope you enjoy his (and the bands’) words and do crank out their new album at the same time – it’s nothing short of breathtaking. Until next month… Darren Sadler
