Horde of Zombies,
After the disappointment that was Darker Days Ahead, (well for me anyway) this is a proper return to form. A consistently heavy album from start to finish and it's nice (in a cheesy way), to see a band singing (growling) about fictional horror like zombies and radiation.
This album actually takes me back to early 91 when bands like Massacre, Cancer, Nocturnus and of course the mighty Morbid Angel all had CD covers with demons and zombies on and wrote/played about these things in their work. it's a bizarre thing to get dewy-eyed about I know, but music is a very personal thing!
This album is so consistently fast, aggressive and frantic throughout that it almost becomes funny - this is not to say its comical, far from it. The album is technically amazing and the powerhouse drumming of Sandoval (drumming God), Dave Vincent's crisp strumming (bass maestro) coupled with superb production and sound make this a triumphant return to form.
Nostalgic while being fresh, heavy whilst being subtle, this is an amazing 3rd album...
Terrorizer, I salute you... A must buy

Terrorizer released one album - World Downfall. A message to the musicians on this album and the last; it's time to move on... stop wasting your time and form another band. You're talented but World Downfall was a masterpiece... it was one of a kind... it was a unique sound (largely due to Oscar Garcia's vocals and Jesse Pintado's guitar). Sadly, Jesse Pintado is no longer with us and the new vocalist, compared to Garcia, is just generic, he sounds exactly like 50000 other vocalists. The last album's only good song was the cover of the original line up's 'Dead Shall Rise' and even that was boring due to the generic vocals. There is no point. I made it half-way through the first song on '... Zombies' and turned it off. For me, Terrorizer ended after World Downfall.
