Terrorvision – Super Delux (2011)

Terrorvision Rocks. In the good old-fashioned way: cutting edge guitars, pumping bass, solid drums, voice with character and it’s all about feeling good. I loved “Oblivion” from their second album “How to Make Friends and Influence People” released back in 1994, and Terrorvision managed to hit Top 40 in UK subsequently with all they singles released till 1999. But after their forth album “Shaving Peaches” EMI drop them and after one more album released by Papillon Records in 2001 “Good to Go” the band splitting up and vanished.
Meantime EMI tried to ripping off all the skins from the band and cashing in by releasing two best of albums and in 2005 with the release of” B Sides And Rarities“. The group reformed to play two tours in 2005 played four more dates in November and December 2007. Occasionally they played few gigs through 2008 and 2009 as well fulminating with the headlining on the Bohemia Stage at the 2010 Sonisphere festival at Knebworth House. On “Super Delux” we’ve got 11 brand new Rock tracks, but somehow I have the feeling none of them have a good charting chance, there’s no new “Oblivion” or “Tequila”. I love “Pushover” and the little bit jazzy “Friend in Need”, actually the whole material is still the same good old Rock, but none of this songs sounds like a real anthem and without the support of a real pushing big gun record label behind their back, in 2011 it’s hard to make another breakthrough. I’m glad to see them back and I hope they will manage to resist trough this rough times.
