With the main objective of "Slaughtering the Astrakhan" (reducing "herd mentality"), TD creates its own unique niche in the realm of Underground Metal. Originating as an idea around '90-91, through sheer tenacity Terminal Descent has stood the "test of time" in its ten year "career". The self proclaimed "Poor Man's Band of Heavy Mettle" didn't materialize in the Underground Metal scene until mid '97 and ever since has clawed its way up the ranks through moments of adversity to shake hands with the master...the master being itself! Terminal Descent makes no proclamations of dominating any scene other than the "Terminal Descent scene". "Strong are those who hold steadfast in unity, stonger still are those who turn their backs on convention!" A "true" master need not prove anything to anyone to be powerful...Terminal Descent is not here to "sell", it's here to "share"...withholding makes powerless...with-holding makes power-less! Follow the path of not following paths! "It's lonely at the top", so "they" say, this is the reason TD participates...for a chance to commune with fellow "masters"...we are all masters! Let your own will guide you and you will have the key to unimaginable depths! As you can see Terminal Descent isn't a "bubble gum" project...but that shouldn't take away from the "sonic alchemy" of "aural pleasure" either (yes, there's humor as well...ha!). Terminal Descent is comprised of thought provoking lyrics and "hybrid Metal" with myriad levels of consciousness giving something to everyone who dares to listen!
