Terrorizer was the world’s leading extreme music publication from its launch in 1993 to its untimely demise in 2018. Ian Glasper was one of the few constants during the magazine’s twenty-five year reign of terror, and their main correspondent for punk, hardcore and thrash metal (not to mention the occasional death metal band and other surprises along the way), and here - for the very first time - he has collected every single interview of his that ever ran, and even a few that didn’t.


Alongside dozens of rarely seen photos from the relevant periods, and forewords from All Out War’s Mike Score and OG Terrorizer editor Nick Terry, ‘Terrorized: Volume One’ includes hundreds of old school interviews that appeared in the mag, including 100 Demons, 25 Ta Life, AFI, Agnostic Front, Amebix, Annihilator, Anthrax, Arkangel, Bad Religion, Born From Pain, Breakdown, Broken Bones, Cancer, Candlemass, Cannibal Corpse, Cause For Alarm, Chaos UK, Congress, Converge, Cro-Mags, Crowbar, The Damned, Danzig, Death Angel, Decapitated, Destruction, Discharge, Disfear, DOA, Down By Law, Dub War, earthtone9, Earth Crisis, Excel, Exodus, Extinction of Mankind, Extreme Noise Terror, Face Down, Freebase, The Fiend, Floodgate, Gama Bomb, Gorefest, The Great Deceiver, Grip Inc., Guttermouth, H2O, Hades, Hatebreed, The Haunted, Hirax, Hypocrisy, Icons of Filth, Ignite, Immolation, Integrity, and many, many more.

“Terrorizer was essential reading. I looked forward to thumbing through it to keep up with new releases, reading the reviews, and in order to follow some of my favourite bands. I really enjoyed the live reviews as it gave me the opportunity to vicariously attend these shows through the eyes of the reviewer. As a huge fan of all things heavy, Terrorizer was everything I was looking for in a magazine. It was glossy and slick, but covered all things ugly and dark. The magazine addressed the obvious bands of the time, but also took a much deeper dive into the obscure. Terrorizer was not afraid to give exposure to things that were happening underneath the surface; Ian, and the magazine as a whole, gave a platform to underground scenes that were being ignored by the more mainstream publications. Looking back now I realize the impact the vast diversity in the coverage had on opening metal fans’ eyes to more eclectic styles within the genre. Terrorizer gave upcoming underground acts the chance to appear in the same pages as the already established powerhouses. At the time, I don’t know if people consciously realized the type of impact this was having on heavy music, but in hindsight, this type of coverage was catching on and opening doors. All anyone needs to do is revisit those old issues from the ‘90s and they will see such a variety of bands appearing alongside one another. Bands who normally would not have been mentioned in the same breath were colliding and appearing side by side. This approach managed to keep things fresh and interesting” – Mike Score, All Out War.


“Ian was our hardcore and punk expert, the curator of the magazine’s ‘Hardcore Holocaust’ review column. He gave me a crash course in the full range of hardcore and punk styles, and scenes that were exploding at the time in the US and across Europe. Re-reading these interviews, in some cases 25 years later, I can’t help but be amazed at how fresh they feel today. Every feature wasn’t just turned in on time, it was written with palpable enthusiasm, encyclopaedic knowledge and sound judgement. You’ll find yourself not only reminded of some classic albums, but also introduced to some records that you might well have dismissed out of hand Back In The Day. Time will tell how we look back on the extreme music scenes of 1993 to 2018 in the future, and whether Ian will write more of his histories of these decades for different scenes and genres; for now, these two volumes chronicle and recall a remarkable time in hardcore, punk, metalcore and metal that should be long remembered” – Nick Terry, Terrorizer editor, ’96-2000.


“There’s occasionally talk of how ‘the ‘90s’ was a bit of a fallow period for ‘metal’ but I disagree; ‘classic metal’ had become bloated and a bit lost so it was the sub-genres and cross-pollination of the scenes in the ‘90s that helped the beast mutate and develop in different ways. This, in my eyes, is what kept the various scenes fresh and moving forward, and Ian was right there with Terrorizer magazine documenting this sea change and myriad of micro-genres which bubbled up. And let’s be honest, in the pre- and early-internet days, Terrorizer was the most dedicated and consistent supporter of the heavier end of the metal spectrum. And in featuring such a diverse and varied range of these bands it also shows the exceptional good taste and talent Ian has in rooting out quality stuff from right across genres” – Michael McKeegan, Therapy?


“’Terrorized: The Collected Interviews’ is another indispensable history, a map of where Ian Glasper cut his teeth, but also a vast trove of articles from Terrorizer and beyond that, as always forms a larger continuity. If Ian was all over an issue of our magazine, everything was alright with the world. Take that engagingly enthusiastic yet always authoritative voice away and everyone would have noticed - from the staff trying to create a fully-fledged, if sprawling world within the front and back covers, to the readers who wanted familiar co-ordinates and new discoveries revealed. Without him, the rod on which the magazine was founded would have looked very flimsy indeed. That goes for the underground music scene as a whole. The amount of ground Ian has covered over the past three decades form the glue that holds it together, and when civilisation finally does collapse, it’s a body of work such as this that will remain the vestige of coherence, the most reliable of guides when all around us is chaos” – Jonathan Selzer, Terrorizer editor, 2000-07.
