Portuguese thrashers TERROR EMPIRE are very proud to announce João Dourado as the new drummer for the band. João has played for bands such as Antichthon and Existence:Vøid, both from Coimbra (Portugal). He’s also become a record producer, having been responsible for the tight sound displayed on Destroyer of All’s “Into the Fire”. Terror Empire has been rehearsing and creating new songs since late October, and the chemistry is great. The new album will surely feature Dourado’s blast-beats, that’s for sure.
“When the band invited me to fill in for two gigs, it was easy enough to become a member of the family. When you start playing this fast pacing brutality, you kind of want to stick around. Once the Terror grows on you, and you cannot leave the Empire anymore. I believe I can help Terror Empire reach the next level, and release a killer sophomore record… new seeds grow on Terror Empire, the new album is gonna be killer! Hope the fans will provide me the support we all need and show up at our next gigs. May we spread the Terror and share our hopes and dreams through music.” – João Dourado
The band will be playing some of the new tunes on the next shows. These shall be the last of the Face the Tour run, there won’t be live terror until the new album’s release, in early 2014.
