TERRORIZER LA - After World Obliteration


This show will in a word be legendary. Yes, we have to repeat l.e.g.e.n.d.a.r.y.!!! What else should it be, when one of the bands that created the phenomenon of grindcore is to perform at Obscene Extreme 2015? A band that influenced the coming generations of young and angry men and women who signed to this musical style that is still alive with their own blood. Citing Čurby „…. I am shivering just now thinking of the ride to see!!!“. And he is right!


The band that recorded the best grindcore album of all times at the end of the 80's „World Downfall“ (…no kidding, just look it up in wikipedia!) will drive into your cortex with a precision of a neurosurgeon pretty deep and will leave a scare there you will carry forever. The line-up to perform in Trutnov was put together around the original member of the band Oscar Garcia (e.g. Nausea) this year for a special set to celebrate the 45. birthday of another late founding member of this band Jesse Pintado. The band decided to go on after a greatly received performance at a gig called „Grindcore JP 2014“ and one of the planned gigs will be a show at Obscene Extreme 2015!!!

Do not miss that!!!


Terrorizer is an American grindcore band formed in 1986 in Los Angeles, California. Founded by Oscar Garcia (Nausea), Jesse Pintado and Pete Sandoval. The band went on to record its inaugural album, World Downfall, in 1989 along with David Vincent (Morbid Angel) on bass. The album is seen as one of the classics of early grindcore. Several of the songs were written by Oscar Garcia for Nausea, but the band was short on time in the studio and used the Nausea songs (“After World Obliteration,” “Corporation Pull-in” among many others) to fill out the album. In early 2005 it was rumored that Terrorizer were to reform with their original line-up; however, of the original line up, only Jesse Pintado and Pete Sandoval returned, while Oscar Garcia went back to working on Nausea material. Jesse Pintado passed away in 2006, precluding any further Terrorizer shows with the original line-up.

In 2014, Oscar Garcia was invited by Jesse Pintado’s sister to put together a new lineup of Terrorizer (his version known as Terrorizer LA or TLA) for a festival celebrating what would have been Jesse Pintado’s 45th birthday. He asked fellow Nausea member Leon del Muerte (Murder Construct) to play guitar, and shortly afterward Cosmo Reveles, Rick Cortez (Sadistic Intent) and Mike Caffell (Dreaming Dead, Exhausted Prayer) were recruited to fill out the band. After the highly anticipated and successful performance at Grindcore JP 2014, Terrorizer LA is now planning shows for 2015 and beyond.

Oscar Garcia - Vocals

Leon del Muerte - Guitar

Rick Cortez - Guitar

Cosmo Reveles - Bass
