“EVEN THOUGH WE STILL RESPECT THE TRADITIONAL HARDCORE VALUES AND THEMES, OUR VIEW IS JUST MORE APOCALYPTIC AND NEGATIVE”

FINLAND’S RAVAGE RITUAL HAVE JUST LAID THE UK TO WASTE ON TOUR AND GU ITARIST NO RD TE LLS TERRORIZER ALL ABOUT THEIR NEW ALBUM ‘HIGHER POWER ’

Words: Ian Glasper

“We most definitely regard ourselves as a hardcore band, ” claims Nord, guitarist with Finland’s Ravage Ritual. “We have lots of metal influence in our sound and songs, and also some influence from other very different music, but hardcore is what we identify with as a band. Working hard for the band, creating strong music with meaning, and being sincere in what we do are the values in hardcore, and values that we all agree with. Although our interpretation of hardcore is more negative and dark than most, hardcore is the field on which we bear witness to apocalypse.

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
