Before Pete Sandoval recorded Morbid Angel’s first album, 1989’s Altars Of Madness, he performed on two demos and a split album with his original band TERRORIZER. Today, the group’s 1989 full-length debut World Downfall is still considered a pinnacle for death metal and grindcore, featuring impossibly fast blastbeats and double-bass drumming along with a blitzkrieg attack by late guitarist Jesse Pintado (Napalm Death), and ex-vocalist Oscar Garcia (Nausea). The 1989 lineup was rounded out by Sandoval and then-fellow Morbid Angel bandmate David Vincent on bass
Over the next twenty-three years, Sandoval took time between Morbid Angel albums to continue working with TERRORIZER, recording two more cataclysmic full-lengths, 2006’s Darker Days Ahead and 2012’s Hordes Of Zombies. And now, another six years down the burning highway, TERRORIZER is back with Caustic Attack, their heaviest and most eclectic album to date.
Sandoval has long been known as one of the fastest players in death metal – the pioneer of blastbeats – and he doesn’t hold back on Caustic Attack. At the same time, even the fastest songs are tighter and more precise than TERRORIZER have ever been thanks to veteran producer Jason Suecof, who’s painstaking method of recording showcases Sandoval and his team at peak capacity.
The proof is in the pummeling. There are flesh-shredding grindfests like “Turbulence,” “Caustic Attack,” and “Poison Gas Tsunami,” each of which swoops down, destroys, and depart in under-two-minutes. Then, there are the nearly five-minute-long tracks, including “Infiltration” – which slows to a thunderous breakdown before ramping back up to hyper-speed – and “Wasteland,” a global conflagration with undeniable guitar hooks and a lethal mid-song chug that reveals previously unexplored diversity and depth.
“If extreme metal is Sandoval’s ministry, Caustic Attack is the sort of triumph that’ll have you taking a look at that higher power.” — Decibel
“Blast-beat expert Pete ‘Commando’ Sandoval shows why he still excels at the style he helped to perfect…” — Rolling Stone on Caustic Attack’s title track
 
“If you’ve ever accidentally spilled anything super-acidic on yourself, it’s not hard to imagine ‘Invasion’ as the panicked soundtrack to searing flesh. The band ain’t called ‘TERRORIZER‘ for nothing.” — MetalSucks on “Invasion”
 
“…a minute-long onslaught of blasting fury and muscular staccato riffs….” — Revolver on Caustic Attack’s title track
 
“…this album rips from start to finish.” — No Clean Singing
 
“…the absolute Grandaddies of grind…” — Antichrist Magazine
 
“…one of the genre’s finest efforts of the last few years if what you fancy is straight-up no bells and whistles extreme metal.” — Metal Wani
 
“Sandoval is still the benchmark for all extreme metal drummers and percussionists.” — Metal Obsession

CAULDRON: New Noise Magazine Streams New Gods Full-Length From Canadian Heavy Metal Trio; Record To See Release Friday Via The End

 

Canadian heavy metal trio CAULDRON will drop their New Gods full-length this Friday via The End Records in North America and Dissonance Productions in Europe. Crowned, “a classic heavy metal ripper,” by Metal Injection, the band’s fifth full-length and follow up to the acclaimed 2016 offering In Ruin was captured by Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Wooden Sky) at Union Sound in Toronto and again highlights the band’s now-signature strong emphasis on songwriting and melody, complete with high-end organic production to match.

 

Stream New Gods in full alongside an interview with frontman Jason Decay courtesy of New Noise Magazine, at THIS LOCATION.

 

CAULDRON’s New Gods will be available on CD, digital, and vinyl formats. For preorders go to THIS LOCATION.

In conjunction with the release of New Gods, CAULDRON will be playing a handful of US shows in with support provided by Barrow Wight this week. The band has also confirmed a special record release show in their hometown of Toronto, set for September 15th at Junction City Music Hall. See all confirmed dates below.

CAULDRON:

9/06/2018 The Middle East – Boston, MA w/ Barrow Wight

9/07/2018 Boot & Saddle – Philadelphia, PA w/ Barrow Wight
9/08/2018 The Kingsland – Brooklyn, NY w/ Barrow Wight
9/15/2018 Junction City Music Hall – Toronto, ON

 

Toronto’s CAULDRON was born from the ashes of Goat Horn. After calling it quits in 2006, frontman Jason Decay wasted no time in putting together CAULDRON to carry on his heavy metal vision. Leaders among the new wave of traditional heavy metal, CAULDRON – which features Decay alongside Ian Chains (guitar) and Myles Deck (drums) – has since released two EPs with Into The Cauldron (2007) and Moonlight Desires (2014) as well as four full-length albums: Chained To The Nite (2009), Burning Fortune (2011), Tomorrow’s Lost (2012), and In Ruin (2016). The band has toured the world with the likes of Municipal Waste, Death Angel, Nevermore, Diamond Head, Enforcer, and in the summer of 2013, were invited to play Metallica’s Orion Fest in Detroit. Burning Fortune was nominated for a Juno award in 2012 while the video for the single “All Or Nothing” has received almost 600,000 views on Youtube/Vevo and was featured in the video game RockBand.

 

“The latest single is ‘No Longer,’ a Scorpions-meets-Dokken-esque rocker that focuses on strong vocals and badass guitar licks to create their retro-leaning approach. Riffs are paramount, yet the quality of the band’s songwriting supersedes any potential genre trappings.” — Revolver on “No Longer”

 

“…a classic heavy metal ripper. Not in a crushing, fast way, but instead one rife with catchy choruses and big arena-rock riffs.” — Metal Injection

 

“…a no frills, no bells and whistles kind of record that is a solid listen all around… CAULDRON do a great job carrying the torch for all of us old-school metal heads.” — Puregrainaudio


“…In Ian Chains they have one of the more talented guitarists around, and here he is to the fore again. ‘Letting Go’ stirs the pot to find some occult sounding alchemy.” — Maximum Volume Music

 

“Cauldron have once again done a fantastic job of crafting catchy songs within a bone crunching early ’80s metal framework, dripping with dark atmosphere yet also brightly melodic at the same time.” — Sea Of Tranquility
