On August 13, 2010, SHEER TERROR reared its ugly head once again and it appears that the illustrious Reverend
Paul Bearer along with the new and improved lineup of Mike Delorenzo (guitar), Jason Carter (bass), and Anthony
Corallo (drums) are here to stay this time.
After delivering their first 7” EP Spite to satiate the hunger of the hardcore masses, the first SHEER TERROR fulllength
in 18 years is about to drop on our heads like a bag of cinder blocks. Recorded in early 2014 by Dean Baltulonis
at Thump Studios in a Brooklyn, NY, Standing Up for Falling Down pulls no punches. “I am so fucking proud
of my band!” says Paul. “There was never a NYHC/punk record that ever sounded like this... hard as fucking nails!”
In the longstanding tradition of SHEER TERROR, this record is everything you know and love, and then some.
Always pushing the boundaries a step further with each release, it’s hard, heavy, and honest. Paul Bearer delivers
one of his greatest vocal performances to date and the band is harder and tighter than ever. From the tongue in
cheek, yet brutal hardcore pummeling of “Heartburn In G” to the melodic melancholy of “Sandbox Tonka”, there’s
plenty of gritty, dirty, balls to the wall, hard-driving punk from a band that was born in a time when hardcore was
an actual threat. SHEER TERROR could only have existed in New York, and this is true NYHC. Standing Up For
Falling Down is the SHEER TERROR album you’ve all been waiting for, and you won’t be let down. Now... shut
up and buy it, punk!
