This album is darker than its predecessor "World Downfall". The Guitars are muddier and the overall feel of the album is more Death Metal than Grindcore. Two key members are missing from the lineup, David Vincent on Bass, also of Morbid Angel and Genitorturers and Oscar Garcia of Nausea. Jesse Pintado's guitar riffs are as deadly as ever but the guitar lacks the crisp attack of his work on the "World Downfall". Pete Sandoval is on the drum kit again and the guy is a Drum God, what more can be said? The new vocalist Anthony Rezhawk is pretty good but he ain't Oscar Garcia. Tony Norman plays bass and extra guitars on this dense slab of Death metal and isn't half bad at all. The album is generic Death Metal and doesn't stand head and shoulders above the other Death Metal mongerers like the debut did. I feel that the chemistry of the original band is better than this second incarnation but it is still a good album. This album is still as good as any of the many Death Metal bands out there but is not quite in the league of Nile. This album is for fans of Terrorizer, Napalm Death, Morbid Angel and Nausea.
It is well worth the price and I am not sorry that I bought it. The vinyl is 180 grams and the cover is excellent, the allround package is a work of art and a pleasure to hold and listen to. This is a must for any vinyl junkie.Darker Days Ahead [VINYL]

World Downfall was always going to be hard to beat, but Darker Days ahead is truly amazing.

Took some time getting used to the industrial sound, but this album has quickly become my favourite.

Pete's drumming is insane and Tony's voice really pays tribute to this album.

Major bummer about Jesse passing away, but I know he'll be happy that he went out with full flying colours.

Turn it up!!!

World Downfall was and still is one of my favourite all-time albums (and I have owned it for fifteen years) so when this album appeared I was filled with great anticipation. However, this album is basically just a generic metal album. Its highlight being the cover version of Dead Shall Rise from World Downfall (and this is not even close to being as good as the original). What made Terrorizer great was the raw sound of their music and the almost punk like vocals of Oscar. Darker Days... is simply a Morbid Angel side project. Don't get me wrong, jesse Pintado is a legend and his death is a tragedy... and his work, as well as Trey's work, on this album is fantastic but the album simply sounds like another boring old death metal band with a little bit of speed added to taste.

Buy it for the sake of it being a good metal album but don't buy it expecting to hear Terrorizer's second album.

Fails to disappoint 27 Aug. 2006
By A. Stutheit - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Seventeen years ago (way back in 1989--before some of you were even born), Jesse Pintado (who would later join Napalm Death), and two members of Morbid Angel (David Vincent and Pete Sandoval) released "World Downfall" under the name Terrorizer. This release would rank the trio as one of grindcore's first, most important, seminal, and influential bands. Now, flash forward almost two decades later: Pintado and Sandoval have reunited, only this time enlisting the services of Morbid Angel and ex-Monstrosity bassist Tony Norman and vocalist Anthony Rezhawk, and, together, the four of them hammered out a sophomore release.

When they first formed, Terrorizer broke--okay, shattered--a great deal of ground in the metal world. Nowadays, however, they don't seem as intent on breaking ground as on shaking it. No, the new record (entitled "Darker Days Ahead") doesn't exactly sound fresh by today's standards, but there's really no death metal/grindcore ground remaining which hasn't already been conquered. Plus, you can't ask a band to be more original or innovative if they've virtually created a whole genre!

"DDA" is a bunch of immensely brutal and satisfying songs (minus the intro and outro) with blazing riffs, blasting drums, and deep, barking vocals. The music can occasionally be a little repetitive (the title track is compiled of only a single riff), but there's still more than enough power and energy in Pete's astounding drum performance and Jesse's speaker-destroying guitar parts to make this disc warrant carrying Terrorizer's name.

"Crematorium" and "Fallout" are two examples of songs which boast blistering guitar leads, slamming drums, several tempo changes ("Crematorium" actually slows down almost to a halt), and actually catchy choruses. "Doomed Forever" continues in this vein, and expertly alternates from a blindingly fast tempo which shoots by like a white, cacophonous blur to a slower, grinding riff. Other recommended tracks include the whirlwind of searing guitars and driving drums on "Nightmare," the earth-quaking "Legacy of Brutality," and "Victim of Greed," which begins with some catchy, repetitive, rumbling guitar noise before exploding into a scorching, full-on assault of the senses.

"Darker Days Ahead" doesn't expand on Terrorizer's sound, but there never has been a lot of room for variation in death/grind, anyways. This is a greatly enjoyable and satisfying ride which will leave no fan (except those who are the most insatiable) disappointed.

A great follow up to a classic album!!! 8 Sept. 2006
By Frank Rini - Published on

Did the Classic World Downfall need a follow-up, so many years after its initial release? No, but that does not mean that Darker Days Ahead is not a decent cd, in fact it's pretty excellent. The trademark Terrorizer guitar sound that the late Jesse Pintado (RIP) developed is fully evident here. As a whole the songs are longer than the firt cd. While I preferred Nausea's vocalist Oscar Garcia to the guy on this cd, the new guy actually has a pretty good voice and tries to sound like Oscar on some parts. Pete's drumming is incredible and this is just an excellent cd. A few disappointments, intro and outro are pretty cool, especially the outro, but only 10 songs round this cd out, as opposed to World Downfall's 16. Out of the 10 only a few are new, they redo Dead Shall Rise, basically a faster version with added lyrics and singing in certain parts and reworkings of older demo songs. But still that is o.k., because the majority of us have never heard the demo songs. Anyway it has the brutality you would expect from Terrorizer and has some catchy parts.

One comment: if you like Sinister and Morbid Angel, this album won't fail you.
I'm not comparing among the groups, but it's just to give an idea for those who are considering on this one. I don't like machine gun + chain saw style bashing death metals, I like this album because this one follows classical death metal ways. Besides, since it's in death metal category itself, it's already and enoughly fast and heavy. Asphyx's new album and this one give relief that death metal still has something to say, in the way that attracted me 20 years ago.
