Terror is a hardcore punk band with members from Los Angeles, California and Richmond, Virginia. Their second album One with the Underdogs sold over 40,000 copies. They have toured throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Mexico and South America. Their third album, Always the Hard Way reached No. 10 on Billboard Heatseekers and No. 19 on the Top Independent Records chart. Before Terror, vocalist Scott Vogel sang for Slugfest, Despair, and for Buffalo based hardcore metal act Buried Alive in the mid-90's. Drummer Nick Jett and ex-guitarist Todd Jones were members of the well-known hardcore band Carry On. Carl Schwartz, formerly of Sworn Vengeance, recorded much of Always the Hard Way after quitting the band to front First Blood full time. Vogel is widely known in the scene not just for his efforts to keep hardcore "pure" and "fun," but for his love of stagedives, and for his tendency for bizarre and often hilarious on-stage banter, known colloquially as "Vogelisms". Examples include: "We need to elevate the maximum stagedive potential", "Take this shit to the next level", "Who cares if you're Christian?", and "Maximum output! Activate the pit!" Terror also participated in the first two years of the Sounds of the Underground tour. Their new album due out in 2012 is to be titled "Live By The Code." "Live By The Code" was pushed back to April 2013 and will be released by Victory Records on CD and by Reaper Records for the vinyl. The band explained the decision to go with Victory on their Twitter account, Facebook account and via their official website. Terror's 2013 album "Live By The Code" was the band's first time charting on the The Billboard 200 at #121. It was also number one on the Heatseekers chart and #28 on Independent chart. LBTC sold 3,177 copies in its first week
