Wait, is that Leatherface? Masked muppets of metal Terror Universal have officially unveiled their new frontman, after firing their old one, Rott, aka Chad Armstrong, due to “personal differences”. Their new vocalist, a hot piece named Plague, looks like he might axe murder them in their sleep, should personal differences ever arise.
“We are very excited to welcome our new singer “PLAGUE” to the TERROR UNIVERSAL family and introduce him to you all,” the Soundwave 2015 alumni posted on their official Facebook page. “He was actually on our short list of original candidates, to try out for Terror Universal back in October 2014. But at the time, other obligations prevented him from auditioning for the position.
“After only 2 rehearsals, we are extremely impressed with Plague’s work ethic, and performance at the Texas Independence Fest, this past weekend in Austin, TX. We are pleased to announce, that we will immediately continue writing new Terror Universal music, and move forward with finishing a full length, to be released in the next few months.”
No word as to whether the newest addition to the horror metal supergroup, which also features Ill Nino members Dave Chavarri (ex-Soulfly) and Ahrue Luster (ex-Machine Head), hails from a well-known band himself. Terror Universal informed one fan, “If we tell you, we must take your soul”.
They have, however, confirmed who it’s not: Corey Taylor. When another fan asked, “This is not Corey Taylor in yet another band is it?” the band responded simply, “No..”
And if you decide to ask Plague yourself, maybe just make sure there isn’t a stray chainsaw lying around.
