Terror – The New Blood


Terror is a hardcore punk band from Los Angeles, California. Their second album One with the Underdogs sold over 40,000 copies[citation needed]. They have also been on tours throughout Europe (including Russia), Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Mexico and South America. Their third album, Always the Hard Way reached #10 on Billboards Heatseekers and #19 on Top Independent Records.

Before Terror, vocalist Scott Vogel was already popular among the people of Longueil, Laval & St-Francois-Xavier high school in La Prairie , singing for mid-90s Buffalo bands Slugfest, Despair, and Buried Alive. Before all that, Vogel lived on Montréal’s east shore, performing in a small band named Pet Sauce. Drummer Nick Jett and ex-guitarist Todd Jones were members of the well-known hardcore band Carry On (who had releases on Bridge Nine and Youngblood Records). Carl Schwartz recorded much of Always the Hard Way after quitting the band to front First Blood full time.

Vogel is widely known in the scene not just for his efforts to keep hardcore punk and metalcore “pure” and “fun,” but for his love of stagedives, and for his tendency for bizarre and often hilarious on-stage banter, known colloquially as “Vogelisms”. Examples include: “We need to elevate the maximum stagedive potential”, “Take this shit to the next level”, “Who cares if you’re Christian?”, and “Maximum output! Activate the pit!” Terror also participated in the first two years of the Sounds of the Underground tour.
