Terrorain - Demo Ep

Taking their name from a Septic Death track, the U.K.'s Terrorain were a short-lived hardcore band that circulated in the same scene as Heresy, Concrete Sox and the like at the end of the 1980s.  Along with these stalwarts of the late 80s U.K. HC community, they took influences from U.S. hardcore, continental speedcore and added a touch of the emerging grindcore sound.  As mentioned in the bio included with this record, Siege, Lärm and Inferno were additional musical inspiration, beyond Septic Death and their U.K. compatriots.  This 7" is their 1988 demo cassette released on vinyl in 2000 by the great, but sadly defunct, Burrito records.  Only playing a handful of shows and without any proper releases, this demo stands as Terrorain's only output.  That said, its a platter of awesome thrashy HC that fits right in with the classic bands of that era... its too bad that the group couldn't hold it together longer to make more of an impact in such a great time and place for bands with this distinct sound. 

Terrorain - 1988 Demo Ep   


  1. They changed their name to Devolution and were featured on a split album with Grave. They didn't split up until 1990 when the lead guitarist went to university. As far as I'm aware, he has no idea this ever got a release as an EP.

    1. Actually the original line up of Terrorain except lead vocalist Pat became Detriment who released a couple more demos. Detriment was more of a DC straight edge sound. Chris Burton (bass) then went on to form Shutdown who released a couple of albums (that was a very DC straightedge sound). Ant - guitar (that's me posting this reply btw) and Jarrod - drums then joined with Mark to form Devolution which was our west midlands take on the voivod concept sound.

      Interestingly - apart from Pat Lawlor (vocals) in all 3 of those main bands, we were all just school friends (we all attended the worcester royal grammar school).

  2. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr.Ogudugu by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.Ogudugu. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.Ogudugu for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM.
