Three years since their debut album, HARK’s second album ‘Machinations’ sees the newly expanded quartet transform into the sonic giants they’ve always promised to be. TERRORI ZER is excited. WORDS: José Carlos Santos


Now that the dust has settled and I’m able to look at this record a bit more objectively, I’m happy that it serves as the first document of Hark V.2.0. Essentially, this is a new band,” says Jimbob Isaac as soon as we start talking about the band’s new album, ‘Machinations’. Way to get you excited if you haven’t heard it yet, right? He’s absolutely spot on, too. Just as his previous band Taint’s releases also seemed to herald a new path at each turn, the talented Welsh frontman keeps that constant thrust of innovation, that creative restlessness, entirely active with Hark. ‘Machinations’ is not a complete departure from Hark’s 2014 debut ‘Crystalline’, but the big leap is certainly felt.

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
