Terror – Lowest of the Low

Lowest of the Low

Terror is the West Coast hardcore band made up of East Coast hardcore weirdoes from Cleveland and Upstate New York. Terror’s masterpiece LP Lowest of the Low, featuring hardcore “superstar” Todd Jones (ex-Carry On), was originally released on Bridge 9 Records but I have the 2005 reissue from Trustkill Records. Upon its release in 2003, Lowest of the Low was a sensation in the hardcore scene. The record placed Terror at the front of the moshcore pack, where they’ve been ever since.

Trustkill’s version of Lowest of the Low is stuffed with bonus tracks. It has Terror’s side of the split EP with Ringworm and a cover version of Dag Nasty’s “Can I Say.” More importantly, the Lowest of the Low reissue contains an entire live set of Terror in Tokyo. From the sound of it, the show was insane that night. Plus, the live set is full of Vogel-isms. If you’ve never heard Terror before, imagine a less metal but way meaner version of Hatebreed. It’s cool stuff if you’re into that sort of thing.
