Los Angeles hardcore metal band Terror return with its sixth studio album "The Twenty Fifth Hour." Clocking in at just over twenty-two minutes, the new fourteen-song release contains no waste, no "throw-away" tracks, no "fillers." The album hits hard right from the opening one-two punch of "The 25th Hour" and "No Time For Fools." While most of the songs stay under the two-minute mark, tunes like "Bad Signs" and "The Solution" are aggressive pieces of music that have a refreshing feel, especially for a band that has been around almost fourteen years. The sixty-five seconds that make up "Trust No Face" is a quick-hitting, hardcore metal attack that takes no prisoners, along with the ninety seconds of "Mind At War," which leaves a path of destruction. The album finishes with the mixed tempo of the thunderous rhythm of "Both Of You" and the mainstream metal screams of "Deep Rooted."
