This industrial band based out of NYC blazed onto the scene in 2001 with their self released album titled „We Know Pain”. Having been influenced by bands such as Controlled Bleeding, Monolith, Neurosis, Merzbow, Manufactura and Synascape, TERRORFAKT describes their sound as ranging from “powerful dancefloor anthems to ambient sound-scapes and pure experimental noise structures.”After releasing several albums on their own, TERRORFAKT was signed to Tinman Records and released the album „Deconstruction” in 2003. The album was a huge club hit in the United States as well as in Canada and the band attributed this success to the loyal DJs who enjoyed the album and played select songs from „Deconstruction” over the airwaves. In order to build up a strong fan base, TERRORFAKT has been touring relentlessly, performing over 150 times in the U.S. and Canada since mid 2002. The band has opened for such bands as E-Craft, Das Ich, Funker Vogt, Manufactura, Inertia, Haujobb and Hocico. The band's success has enabled them to remix material for numerous bands including P.A.L., E-Craft, NeikkaRPM, Crocodile Shop, Das Ich, Poitive Complex, Wumpscut, Dubok, Massiv In Mensch, Mindless Faith, UV, DYM, Inertia, and GASR to name a few. TERRORFAKT returned with their second release on their new label, Metropolis Records. Released in August of 2004, „Cold Steel World” contained brutal rhythms designed to turn any dancefloor into a warzone like frenzy. TERRORFAKT's Metropolis debut, Cold Steel World, was one of 2004's greatest sleeper hits. For the first several weeks after the album's release, the label had difficulty keeping it in stock. The band also played over 70 live dates in 2004 alone! For 2005, TERRORFAKT presented the world with a remix CD called „ Cold World Remixes” packed with over the top remixes by Imperative Reaction, E/Craft, Angel Theory, Cervello Electronico, and Life Cried and five tracks not on CSW. TERRORFAKT’s second album on Metropolis, „Teethgrinder”, was a myriad of torment, anger, confusion, hatred, and pain. For 2009, TERRORFAKT presents: Re/Evolution. A looking forward /looking back type of release in the respect that it features some classic out of print TERRORFAKT material remastered, in addition to a few songs that were never "officially" released, as well as some new remixes and some new studio material. While this may satiate the longing for a new studio album, Re/Evolution can stand on its own as one of TERRORFAKT’s best releases.
