Band Information

After Damaged split at the beginning of 2004, founding member Matt "Skitz" Sanders joined Walk the Earth with original Damaged vocalist James Ludbrook and Superheist guitarist DW Norton. By mid-05 that band had split after Ludbrook left; almost 12 months later, the ex-Damaged pair teamed up once more to reform their former band; however after a short time they decided to call the new group Terrorust. Post Mortal Archives featured guest vocals by Tony Forde from Blood Duster, Damon Bloodstorm from Bestial Warlust and Jay Jones from Fuck... I'm Dead and arrived in mid-2006 in a limited edition of 1000 and Dave Howells of Hatchet Dawn joined the band as a second guitarist. Terrorust played at the Festival of the Dead in Sydney despite Howells quitting the night before. Andrew Gillon of Abominator was then recruited for a tour with Deicide. By early 2007, Ludbrook was gone, replaced by Matt Storma (who had done some vocals on the album) in late February, in time for Brisbane's Overcranked festival. The band then played shows with Nile and Decapitated in mid-2007. Gillon then departed and was replaced by Dan Colomb who was then replaced by ex-Manticore member Steve Watts. The band also toured with Celtic Frost and played at Sydney's Come Together festival.

In early July 2008, Skitz toured Europe as the drummer for the Grave Temple Trio before returning to Australia for Terrorust's national tour with Dismember later the same month. In October, the band supported Pig Destroyer in Australia and New Zealand and also played a show with Carcass. With a second album well underway, Terrorust suddenly disbanded. Sanders, O'Grady and Storma formed Insidious Torture and Watts formed Heaven the Axe.
