OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE

NICK SCHENDZIELOS, FORMALLY OF CEPHALIC CARNAGE AND JOB FOR A COWBOY, EXPLAINS HOW HE JOINED DENVER THRASHERS HAVOK AND JUST WHY THEIR FOURTH ALBUM IS THEIR BEST TO DATE

HAVOK

“It was sweet, dude! When I first heard the tracks as an objective outsider, it had me thinking this was going to be the coolest Havok, for sure. And to be able to come in afterwards was really cool!”

Nick Schendzielos holds a unique perspective on Havok and ‘Conformicide’, their latest and fourth album. Nick’s is a name you might recognise from his work in Cephalic Carnage and/ or Job For A Cowboy, via his surreal YouTube tutorials or maybe the alphabet scramble that is his surname. He’s also the newest addition to the Denver-based thrash brigade after previous bassist Mike Leon departed for Soulfly. What makes this situation a little more interesting than your garden variety roster switcheroo is that he was given the opportunity to contribute his stellar playing in the enhancement of a group of songs he’d previously heard and was already a fan of before knowing he was going to be playing on them.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Sitting here wrapping up this brand new issue of Terrorizer, I find myself realising how many ‘old’ bands or new bands with ‘old’ members have been on the cover over recent issues. I have come to the conclusion that it’s not because new bands are shit (just check out our Choice Cuts section for proof), it’s just that some of the old guard are still producing belting new albums and deserve the recognition. Obituary are no exception to this rule. It’s been around 26 years since I first set my eyes and ears on the death metal pioneers and they’ve always stayed close to my heart – hell, I still have my old personal bootleg of them playing Wrexham Memorial Hall at the start of the ’90s. They’ve had a few career wobbles since then, but their new self-titled album is testament to a band that can still deliver the goods and haven’t churned out formulaic rubbish. I hope you enjoy reading about the album’s creation and what being in Obituary means to all involved. Elsewhere there’s a heap of exciting new bands and projects covered including Venom Prison, Vodun, and the earth shatteringly ace OHHMS – all fucking incredible new bands. And then of course, we have some favourites who are back with new albums, so we hope you enjoy reading this all-encompassing issue. See you next month! Darren Sadler
