I WILL BE HEARD

DUTCH GANG GOLD HAVE UPPED THEIR ANTE ONCE MORE WITH ‘OPTIMIST’, BURROWING DEEPER INTO THEIR UNCONVENTIONAL, POST-EVERYTHING PATH AFTER ‘NO IMAGE’ HAD ALREADY SENT THEM INTO THE WILDERNESS – YET THE CONTINUITY IS OBVIOUS, WITH THE PERSONALITY OF THE BAND STILL PRESENT. TERRORIZER ASKS GUITARIST THOMAS SCIARONE WHETHER THIS SHAPE SHIFTING NATURE WAS CULTIVATED IN A CONSCIOUS MANNER…

“There is one thing that I’m very pleased about in the way that you introduced the question, which is when you said that the personality of the band is there,” says main songwriter and guitarist Thomas Sciarone. “I think that’s somehow the key of it all. ‘No Image’ was about a lot of things, but the title was also like a middle finger to identity, to all these bands that are so busy portraying themselves and then put so little effort into doing something original and worthwhile. A lot of work on identity and very little work on personality, and the goal should be personality. It’s about being the best you can be, as a person, as an artist, as a band, as a lover, as everything you are. We’re very aware that it’s impossible to not have an image – that’s an image too. That was the irony.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s safe to say most of the writing team this month are suffering post-Roadburn blues. It happens every year without a shadow of a doubt. If you want to read up on all the fun you either witnessed yourselves or sadly missed out on, for whatever reason, please turn to the live section of the magazine and bathe in some of the highlights of this year’s event. We also have some killer features in this issue, and as always, it’s a battle to feature every band Team Terrorizer loves. The good news is, what’s inside is a broad spectrum of bands who have long-established relationships with the magazine and with you guys too. Dying Fetus grace the cover, which we are very honoured about, and elsewhere there’s some killer interviews with Oxbow, who have returned after a decade; horror rocker Wednesday 13, Schammasch talk about their new opus, VoiVod get nostalgic with us and Vallenfyre have frankly blown the roof down at Tezza Towers with their album of the year contender. So what are you waiting for – stop reading my notes and get to the real action! See you next month! Adios
