Terrorizer #201 & Dominion #6 - September 2010: Killing Joke, Enslaved, Swans, Combichrist
If we're heading for the end-times we want Jaz Coleman as our guide through the apocalyptic minefield. As vocalist, creative architect and bête noire for the post-punk nightmare, Jaz has taken us on sonic tours through alien invasion, the occult, war and politics and 30 years later is back with new Killing Joke cut, 'Absolute Dissent', while still bewildering and fascinating with his often-controversial and frightening prophecies.
Taking heed of his words we've got this issues interviewees Bonded By Blood setting up alien attack training camps to teach us all the art of intergalactic warfare and and Gama Bomb reminding us to watch public service broadcasting such as 'Independence Day', or just tracking down John Cyriis or Paul Masvidal for advice. Even stoner brigade The Sword are looking to the stars on their latest album, as told to Jonathan Horsely over a beer at their recent London show, whereas Enslaved never stopped stargazing, but then again, they rule the cosmos anyway.
Plus we've already got our 200 essential albums downloaded onto nuclear-proof iPods, set to outlast judgement day, with Slayer's 'Reign In Blood' primed to blast out as we count down the hours. Check out this month's second part of our ultimate albums countdown, as chosen by the musicians who were inspired by them.
And if any genre of music has been looking to the future it's industrial goth and in this month's free Dominion supplement we get to grips with Combichrist as well as Murderdolls, William Control and Zola Jesus.
What are you waiting for? This is a call to arms. You must prepare for war.
Terrorizer #201 incorporating Dominion #6 is available for just £4.25 plus P&P in our shop (www.terrorizermagazine.bigcartel.com) or from good newsagents and WHSmith from Thursday 9 September 2010.
