NASUM drummer Anders Jakobson has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"Last week Century Media announced that they have signed TERRORIZER. I guess most of you are aware of the talk of a reunion of TERRORIZER that has been going on the last 10 (?) years. Well, now it's really in the works and we can expect a follow-up to the classic 'World Downfall'. But after reading the news post at Blabbermouth I get very worried:
"'There are reportedly talks of introducing classical piano parts, industrial noise parts and chants on the new record. A 13-minute-plus song is in the works as well as some of the fastest drumming ever put to tape.'
"Classical piano? Chants? 13-minute-plus song? Fuck that — just give us the classic ripping TERRORIZER grindcore that we want and don't fuck up the sound with attempts to be original. The demo track ['Doomed Forever'] at TERRORIZER's MySpace page sounds too much like death metal with really downtuned guitars. I don't want that!
"You know that I've spent seven weeks of my life with Jesse Pintado [TERRORIZER guitarist, ex-NAPALM DEATH] back in 2000 and I can't say that we bonded for life (like I did with Shane [Embury, NAPALM DEATH bassist]) but we've talked a lot and Jesse shared his ideas of grindcore and this description of the new TERRORIZER is sort of going against that.
"I am totally speaking as a fan here... Obviously!
"And regarding the 'fastest drumming ever' remark... No offense, Pete Sandoval [TERRORIZER/MORBID ANGEL drummer], but you have got a lot to prove there. I totally love Pete's style of blasting which has been a huge inspiration for my drumming, but there are a lot of drummers that beats Pete when it comes to speed. As far as I know drumming can't be much faster than those inhuman short blasts that Flo bangs out on the latest CRYPTOPSY album."
