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!

Mick Jelinic (Terraphobia, ex Mortification) checked in with the following sad news:

Yesterday I received some very sad news that former Terraphobia and Mortification drummer Damien Percy had lost his battle from a long illness.

Damien was the drummer on the Mortification “Erasing the Goblin” album and the “Live Humanitarian” DVD he was also the drummer on the 2007 “Live Humanitarian” European tour. Damien was not only an exceptional drummer but an even better person, he was one of my best friends and will be sadly missed but not forgotten. Continue reading »

Terraphobia - Terrafication The Mort Years (2015) For those of you scratching your heads in puzzlement, Terraphobia is a Michael Jelinic project. He spent time in Mortification as their guitarist, but that is getting ahead of us. So let’s go back to 1985 when he formed an original heavy metal band called Lethal Dose. The band released several demos between 1985 & 1993, and after several line up changes and a natural progression to a heavier style of metal, changed the name to Terraphobia. Late 1993 saw the first Terraphobia release ‘Product of Your Mind’ EP. Due to musical differences the singer and bass guitarist left to form a grunge band, leaving behind guitarist Michael Jelinic and drummer Damien Percy.

The next releases, ‘Natural Born Killer’ (1996) and ‘An Eye For An Eye’ (1997) saw Jelinic taking over the vocals with both release’s written, performed and produced by Jelinic. By late 1998 bass guitarist Suzi Reid and drummer Joe Plozza had joined the band, and soon Terraphobia were playing regularly in and around Melbourne, with a highlight playing at the Melbourne Metal Festival in October 1999.

Mick J 2014Soundmass is pleased to announce the release of the sixth Terraphobia album.

Going for something a bit different this time, Michael Jelinic has recorded a Mortification covers album. Having joined Mortification in 2002 and left his mark over 3 albums as one of the metal legends’ most gifted guitarists, Jelinic decided to re-record the 7 songs for which he wrote the music while in Mort. Titled “Terrafication – The Mort Years”, expect a feast of thrash/death metal swathed in the signature guitar playing that we all know and love from this talented musician, coupled with his intense and versatile vocal force. Jelinic also enlisted the help of the mid-era Mortification drummers who shared the stage with him- Mike Forsberg and Damien Percy – to perform on this Mort covers album, making it a reunion of sorts.
