Ignoring current musical trends Terror has assiduously carved themselves a path in the hardcore scene. Absent of cheesy gimmicks or fly by night trends, Terror has taken the ethics and straightforward guitar assault of old school veterans like "The Cro-Mags" and "Agnostic Front" and effortlessly added their rapid fire drum lines and trademark double fisted vocal attack from front man, Scott Vogel. The band''s resurgence of old school hardcore has helped to breathe life to a stagnant genre.
Their debut 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 sophomore 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 metalcore 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 (who had releases on Bridge Nine and Teamwork Records). Richmond, Virginia's David Wood is well known as the vocalist of his hometown hardcore band Down to Nothing. Carl Schwartz, formerly of Sworn Vengeance, recorded much of Always the Hard Way after quitting the band to front First Blood full-time.
