Hardcore music has been around for decades, dating back to the early 80’s in the years of hardcore punk, with bands like Black Flag, Bad Religion, and Suicidal Tendencies. However, the movement has grown and transformed over the years, branching off into different subsections of hardcore such as the straight edge, youth crew, punk, old school and new school. And from these branches come legendary acts such as Minor Threat, Gorilla Biscuits, Madball, Cro-Mags, H20, and the list could go on and on.

There is another band I consider a legend in their own right, that is not usually mentioned with those other giants, and that band is Terror. Granted, they haven’t been around as long as the others; their first demo was released in 2002. But for a hardcore band, 10 years in the business is more than respectable. Plus, in just that 10 year span they’ve put out at least 15 records, demos, and live footage videos, while touring countless times across the country. They are a band that loves what they do, and have contributed more to modern hardcore than any other band I can think of.

Their last album, “Keepers Of The Faith” was awesome. Below is the video for the title track. Also, they have a new album, “Live By The Code”, set to release in April 2013. More info about that can be found on their website. Remember, if you listen to hardcore, you listen to Terror. \m/
