Terminate is: John Porada – Guitar/Vocals, Tom Cardella – Guitar, Alfred Mulle – Bass, Jim Smith – Drums.
The mission of the band is simple: to play death metal the way it was meant to be played. Taking influences from death metal stalwarts Bolt Thrower and Autopsy, while maintaining a melodic sensibility akin to Swedish greats Dismember and Entombed is what defines Terminate sound.
Thanks to the “Thirst For The Obscene” EP released by the band themselves Polish label Selfmadegod inked a deal for releasing Terminate’s debut full length early 2013.
The four piece is putting finishing touches on the upcoming album. More details to be announced soon.
The band was formed in late 2009 by guitarist/vocalist John Porada and drummer Jim Smith. After releasing a successful demo in early 2011, our lineup was completed with Tom Cardella on guitar and Alfred Mulle on bass. Consisting of veterans of the Chicago metal scene as well as the New York metal scene, the band has quickly made a name for itself, catching the attention of not only our home city of Chicago, but also a core of underground fans across the world.
