Last week, masked metal supergroup TERROR UNIVERSAL unleashed their brand new debut full-length album, entitled Make Them Bleed, via minus HEAD Records. In its first week, Make Them Bleed debuted at #8 on the iTunes Metal chart, as well as #13 on the Billboard New Artist chart, #17 on the Billboard Hard Music chart, and #165 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart! In addition, the album landed at #3 on Metal Contraband’s Most Added chart (#11 overall debut), in addition to #27 on the NACC Loud Rock chart.
Drummer Dave Chavarri, a.k.a. MASSACRE says, “We are beyond stoked and proud that TERROR UNIVERSAL‘s debut full length Make Them Bleed made it to the iTunes and Billboard charts this week. We are thankful to all the fans that helped us to make the release a success, and also very thankful to our label Minus Head Records, for the never ending support! See you all on the road throughout 2018!”

Make Them Bleed was produced by members the band, and mixed by Eddie Wohl (Smile Empty Soul, Fuel, Ill Niño, 36Crazyfists).On Make Them Bleed, TERROR UNIVERSAL snap from moments of intense sonic bloodletting into menacing melodic mayhem before creeping back into the shadows to do it all over again – like the musical equivalent of a slasher film. In addition to the seasoned musicians of TERROR UNIVERSAL, Make Them Bleed features the talents of guest bassists John Moyer (Disturbed, Art of Anarchy, ex-Adrenaline Mob) and Tony Campos (Fear Factory, Ministry, Soulfly, Static-X). Campos appears on the track “Dead On Arrival”, and Moyer appears on “Spines”.
TERROR UNIVERSAL‘s masked marauders – who are also current and former members of hard rock and metal royalty such as Machine Head, Ill Niño, Soulfly, and Upon A Burning Body – began stalking the senses in 2014, releasing the Reign of Terror EP a year later and eventually sharing the stage alongside heavy hitters including Korn, Asking Alexandria, HELLYEAH, Papa Roach, Fear Factory, Incite, and more around the globe. 2017 saw them ink a deal with minus HEAD Records and prepare Make Them Bleed for mass consumption – spurned by a re-issued first single “Welcome To Hell,” which has ignited over 170K YouTube views and counting for the lyric video.
