TERROR UNIVERSAL, the "horror metal" band featuring ILL NIÑO drummer Dave Chavarri (who also previously played with SOULFLY), has inked a deal with Minus Head Records. The group will release its debut full-length album, titled "Make Them Bleed", on October 13.
"It is both an honor and a pleasure to sign with Minus Head Records," says Chavarri. "Label owner and CEO Brad Hardie has a strong passion for heavy metal and understands the elements needed to break a band like TERROR UNIVERSAL in the marketplace. It is very seldom in this industry that a label cares that much about their bands. We are ready, and we are here to dominate."
Hardie adds: "Very excited to add TERROR UNIVERSAL to the roster. Their combination of metal with horror lyrics and imagery is exactly the kind of thing we look for! Can't wait to unleash this beast of a record!"
Guitarist Ahrue Luster (ILL NIÑO; formerly of MACHINE HEAD), who was involved with TERROR UNIVERSAL in the early stages of the band, has not been involved with the group for over a year.

01. Welcome To Hell
02. Passage Of Pain
03. Dig You A Hole
04. Dead On Arrival
05. Through The Mirrors
06. Your Time Has Come
