LUST FOR LIFE

WITH THEIR THIRD NEW ALBUM ‘SERMON OV WRATH’ SINCE REFORMING IN 2009, DUTCH DEATH METALLERS ANTROPOMORPHIA ARE SOUNDING SICKER THAN EVER. FRONTMAN FERRY DAMEN TELLS TERRORIZER ALL ABOUT GETTING IN TOUCH WITH HIS ID… WORDS:OLIVIER ‘ZOLTAR’ BADIN

ANTROPOMORPHIA

Let’s face it, it was easy to get lost among the humongous number of bands that flooded the death metal boom in the early ’90s in the Netherlands, especially with so many – Asphyx, Sinister, Pestilence or Gorefest to name just a few – destined to greater things. And even if you’re from one of your home country’s metal strongholds (Tilburg), when you fail to tour outside of the Netherlands and release nothing officially but a limited EP (1993’s ‘Necromantic Love Songs’), only to come up with a follow-up five years later (‘Pure’) in a totally different and not so extreme style, you’ve got yourself a recipe for disaster. So, you’re excused if you’d never heard about Antropomorphia when they, seemingly out of nowhere, signed to Metal Blade in 2012 after going through a selfinflected ten year hiatus in between 1999 and 2009.

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
