For Terror's Live by the Code, the L.A. hardcore act crushes 11 songs in under 30 minutes. Now on Victory Records, with vocalist Scott Vogel, Martin Stewart and Jordan Posner on guitars, David Wood on bass, and drummer Nick Jett rounding out the rhythm section, they continue to rock out the same cross section of unforgivingly brutal hardcore punk, metal, and thrash as their previous releases. This 2013 offering includes standouts like the skull-pummeling "Not Impressed," the rough and raw "One Blood," and the titular track "Live by the Code." Their furious lyrics and chunky guitar lines are standard moshing and stage-diving material, but fans will be satisfied nonetheless. Yet another in a long list of quality outings.
