terror.jpgNo one should be surprised that hardcore stalwarts Terror ankled Trustkill for Century; after all, back in November Terror front man Scott Vogel told us that “we’re not ruling Trustkill out, but we wanna hear labels to hear [the new material], and we want the label that’s really gonna get behind us… someone that’s gonna really believe in us and push us and keep us out on the road and keep us paying our bills.” Do those sound like the words of a man who wants to re-up with his current label? No. No, they do not.

Still, I’m not sure if Century can really do anything for this band. I don’t mean that as a knock against Century, who are clearly one of the best metal labels out there; I just mean that at this point, Terror sounds like Terror, they have their core fan base, and unless they decide to go off and write their equivalent of “Enter Sandman,” I don’t see their records sales increasing or decreasing drastically.

Case in point is “Relentless Through and Through,” the new song the band has posted on their MySpace page. It comes off of The Damned, The Shamed, which will be released on Century on June 10, and it sounds exactly like Terror. That’s not a bad thing – in fact, I anticipate this album being pretty solid. I just hope that no one thinks that this band is gonna take the next step to Hatebreedian levels of popularity anytime soon, ’cause I don’t see it in the cards for them.
