Join Roxx Records as they celebrate a very unorthodox anniversary this year, but this is a very special one! A special 7th anniversary to an album recorded completely by one man, one man who was a driving force in one of Australia’s most historic death metal bands Mortification for many years before venturing on his own to create this true thrash / death metal masterpiece, the man Mick Jelinic, and the band is his very own side project Terraphobia.

The lyric video for ‘Golgotha’ can be watched below.

While Terrahobia can date back all the way to 1985, it was not until 2011 when the very first full length album “Evilution” would be released, which makes it seven years old this year. Released to critical acclaim this album featured every instrument actually being played and recorded by Mick himself, and he created a masterpiece in the process that is now out of print!

They were in the LA scene in the early 80’s that also included Mötley Crüe, Dokken and Ratt. Their self-titled debut album was released in August 1984 and their first single ‘Animal (F*** Like A Beast)’ was excluded from the album in the US so that it wouldn’t get banned from major chain stores. In fact, their early releases were all littered with sexually explicit songs and they suffered a backlash from the establishment. Tipper Gore (the wife of a US senator) founded the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), an organization that pushed for warning labels on recorded music, and made the band one of their prime targets.

Blackie Lawless had a fundamentalist Baptist upbringing and went to church until his late teens. But when he left home and moved to California, he ended up studying the occult for three years. It wasn’t until many years down the line that Blackie would shock the metal community by reading the bible and becoming a born-again Christian.
