TERROR signs with Victory Records!

3 mins read

Victory Records is proud to welcome TERROR to the Victory Records family. They will release their sixth studio album titled “Live By The Code” in April, 2013 in the US and Canada. “Live By The Code” vinyl will be available from Reaper Records. The band met some negative comments regarding the signing. They have issued some statements. Scroll down to find it below the official press release.


TERROR vocalist Scott Vogel comments, “When I was in high school, I would go to ‘Home of the Hits Records’ in Buffalo, NY and every week I would check for new Victory releases. Growing up, Victory Records always had the best hardcore bands, period. They had this awesome packaging and vibe that I loved. INTEGRITY, STRIFE, BLOODLET, EARTH CRISIS -it was a fucking amazing time for hardcore. Later, I met Tony when he came to Buffalo to see SNAPCASE. We stayed in contact and made plans for my second band DESPAIR, but soon after we broke up. Victory and my band BURIED ALIVE worked together for years. They also had HATEBREED, BLOOD FOR BLOOD, ALL OUT WAR and REACH THE SKY, all bands I’ve always respected and held in the highest regard. This summer I hung out with Tony and we had a wild night in Chicago. We talked about the good and bad of hardcore today and just had a blast. No business talk, no nonsense. We were under contract at the time so there wasn’t even room for it. As we got ready to release Live By The Code, TERROR and Century Media debated on how to release the record right and VICTORY RECORDS seemed like the best fit. Tony and I are both insane. We both come from the same place. We both scratch and fight to stay afloat. We still believe in the essence of hardcore and still love WARZONE. This is pretty fucking exciting.”

Vogel claims Live By The Code “hits harder than Keepers Of The Faith”, calling it the “dirtiest, rawest and most hardcore record we’ve done since Lowest Of The Low”. While the album is set for an April, 2013 release date, fans can expect to pre-order their copy of the album soon along with other merch packages. A brand new music video for their album-titled single, “Live By The Code” is also on the horizon, so stay tuned.

TERROR will finish up January in Japan before returning to the states to begin a February tour with H20, BACKTRACK and CODE ORANGE KIDS. They will then pack their bags once more and trek across Europe for the Rebellion Tour with MADBALL in March. “Terror are the biggest hardcore band in the world. I have known Scott for twenty years and he has remained true to what he believes in, cherishes and helps keep alive which is first and foremost- hardcore. If you are just discovering hardcore or have loved it since the movement started in the late 1970’s this album is for you,” said Victory founder Tony Brummel. See a full listing below.

TERROR commneted:

Every move this band has ever made has been criticized by people since the beginning. That has never stopped us or changed our minds in the past, it won’t do so now & it never will in the future. We’re so pumped to finally release LIVE BY THE CODE and travel the world in 2013 playing shows everywhere possible just as we’ve always done. Thanks to everyone that will continue to support us, thanks to those that have in the past. Terror is defined by us & those that share our love for Hardcore as we do. LIVE BY THE CODE in 2013.

We want to thank you for all you gave to us. You opened up our eyes, built us a family. Without you we are so lost. This is commitment, we’re forever yours.

If there’s one thing Terror has excelled at over these 10 years it’s accepting negative feedback. It’s something that we’ve dealt with from day one. We appreciate everyone’s comments, good or bad. “What doesn’t kill you…” and all that cliche stuff. Extra special thanks to those that actually take time to write something positive to us. It really means a lot!
