In my work at Earache Records I get to work on some great bands classic albums, and this is one of those classics … Terrorizer – World Downfall.
World Downfall is regarded as one of the most influential grindcore albums ever: it showcases crunchy, heavily distorted guitar riffs and extremely fast and precise blast beats in addition to growling, harsh vocals and lyrics dealing with social issues, features that would become a standard among grindcore music, as of the cover art, which is similar to Napalm Death’s Scum depicting a collage of Islamic terrorists, nuclear power plant, dead bodies and Jesus rising. About a third of the songs were actually Nausea material, the previous band of vocalist Oscar Garcia. The album was released in 1989 when the band had already split-up, with members Jesse Pintado, David Vincent and Pete Sandoval going respectively to seminal death metal bands Napalm Death and Morbid Angel.
