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 Therapy?’s Michael McKeegan and OG Terrorizer editor Jonathan Selzer, ‘Terrorized: Volume Two’ includes hundreds of old school interviews that appeared in the mag, including Killing Joke, Killswitch Engage, Knuckledust, Kreator, Liar, Life of Agony, Madball, Malevolent Creation, Medulla Nocte, Megadeth, Merauder, Meshuggah, Millencolin, Misfits, Municipal Waste, Murphy’s Law, Napalm Death, Nasty Savage, NoMeansNo, No Redeeming Social Value, NOFX, Nuclear Assault, Obituary, Offspring, Onslaught, Overkill, Pennywise, Peter And The Test Tube Babies, Power Trip, Prong, Raging Speedhorn, RKL, S.O.D., Sacred Reich, Sacrilege, Sepultura, Sheer Terror, Shelter, Sick Of It All, Six Feet Under, Slapshot, Slayer, Slipknot, Snapcase, SNFU, Sodom, Strife, Suffocation, System Of A Down, Terror, Testament, Therapy?, Throwdown, Total Chaos, Toxic Holocaust, Trivium, TSOL, Unleashed, Vader, Vektor, Vital Remains, Warzone, Witchery, Withdrawn, Your Demise and many, many more.

“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.

“I’ll always have a soft spot for Terrorizer. I’m here to celebrate its legacy, and more specifically the bits I wrote, with these two volumes collecting every single interview I had published in the magazine, and even a few that didn’t make it to print. It opened so many doors for me and ultimately enabling me to fulfil a lifelong ambition to write books of my own. When I look back at all the bands I interviewed over those 280+ issues, it was quite a ride and one I hope you’ll enjoy revisiting as much as I did” – Ian Glasper, author, musician.
