Rooted in 1980s technical thrash metal, they update the socio-political criticism known from the genre’s heyday in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s—a time that was also characterized by political upheaval, yet marked by a belief in better times ahead.

Terminalist formed in 2018 and debuted a year later with the EP ‘Abandon All Liberties’, followed by the albums ‘The Great Acceleration’ (2021) and ‘The Crisis as Condition’ (2023). Both released by the influential Danish metal label Indisciplinarian and produced by Lasse Ballade (Slægt, Orm, Solbrud, Konvent among others) at Ballade Studios in Copenhagen.

The four-man band harken back to the traditional and technical thrash metal of the late 1980’s, bringing it up to date by fusing it with black metal blast beats, death metal growls and grandiose prog rock concepts. The result is modern in its concoction, yet retro in its appeal; a style the band itself has dubbed hyperthrash.

On the live front Terminalist have proven themselves as a competent and efficient unit which audiences at among other Copenhell Metal Cruise 2021 and SPOT Metal in Aarhus, Denmark 2021 will agree upon. In April 2023 the band did a row of Danish dates alongside local thrash legends Hatesphere.
