Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Hey guys, Rene and I wanted to get a band together so we put up an add in or local guitar shop in Kelowna B.C. The add got answered by a drummer Jerome B. And a guitarist named Sean P. We soon after found a singer Richard M. and took on the name Skull Hammer. This is at a time when we were exploring for the sound we wanted. After a few line up changes we recruited Brent Gallant from a band called Metal Storm and I decided to take on vocals my self as well as play bass. We went through a name change due to another band with the same name. After moving to Vancouver B.C. We decided on the name Terrifier and continued to shape our sound and sharpen our skills. Another line up change brought drummer Kyle Sheppard and bassist Alexander Giles to the front lines with us.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We are technical melodic thrash metal. We take influences from bands like Megadeth, Slayer, Pantera, Testament, old Blind Guardian and a few other power metal as well as some death metal influence too.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
We bring a upbeat fury with our music as well as aggressive, fast riffage surely to decimate your brain. We play what we like to hear, so I think other people with the same tastes can dig it too.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We have two releases so far. A full length album titled "Destroyers of the Faith" and a EP called "Metal or Death". We are about to release another full length album titled "Weapons of Thrash Destruction" early in the new year.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Yes we feel that if you can't deliver the same performance as your album then it's a real let down to your fans and your live show. It's been good we've opened up bands like Destruction, Warbringer, Havok, Exmortus, Anvil etc.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We kick ass every chance we get and giver 100%. We aim to bring true thrash metal to metal heads all around the world. If their not sure why they should be interested then check out our tunes and you will quickly see why.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We will be releasing our new album "Weapons of Thrash Destruction" in the early new year and be touring this summer for it so get ready to party!
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
