Terminus - _Victim Culture_
by: Alain M. Gaudrault (not rated)
One thing can be said for Terminus; they make a good first impression. This three-song demo is on CD no less, and features decent artwork all around, although conspicuously uncredited. Packaging-wise, these guys get an A+. Unfortunately, the songs just don't cut it in my book. Their bio describes the music as being "a cross between Ministry and Slayer, with elements of Fear Factory, King Diamond, Skrew, and Voivod." I found all three tracks somewhat tiresome, plodding along with their incessant, grating, drum machine percussions, while tired metal riffs droned in the background. The overall sound could have benefited from a decent set of vocals, but _Victim Culture_ fails here too. The gruff but well-enunciated vocal performance serves only to further annoy. Terminus does have a few decent ideas interspersed throughout, but not nearly enough to merit a good review. According to the band, a copy of this demo can be had for a mere American dollar.
