Band

Post-Industrial Death Funk
Monrovia, California, USA

“The industrial revolution is dead and the West has entered into an age of decline. '60s optimism has been crushed by war, poverty, drugs and human nature… The vision of utopia has been replaced by the spectre of Doomsday.

A time has come to replace the old aesthetic with a new one. The Terminal Generation is creating a new standard with fat beats to crush the truth into the heads of the ignorant, bombastic bass to make chests hurt, industrial keyboards to remind the masses of the materialistic oppression they live under, screaming guitars to represent today's anxiety and psychotic vocals that bring into question the sanity of sick society.

We exist to slaughter the sacred cows of modern thought who Dr. Schaeffer has described as saying, “Man is dead. God is dead. Life has become meaningless existence. Man is a cog in a machine. The only way of escape lies in a non-rational fantasy world of experience, drugs, absurdity, pornography, an elusive 'final experience', madness…” To this we say die.”

The Terminal Generation started in 1989 before calling it quits in late 1995. In their own words, The Terminal Generation's sound is “post-industrial death funk.” Proclaimed as “the scariest band on the planet,” they also have no fear in dealing with controversial topics such as abortion and feminism head-on.

After shutting the project down, they briefly explored the secular side of the scene under the band name Echo Death Trunk. Members of this project included TermGen alum King Edward, Stinky, and Hugo and their new sound was described as tribal-sonic-industrial-doom-rock. After also doing some music as Fester, The Terminal Generation was resurrected.

“The Terminal Generation was formed in 1989. Soon after, they began to gig in early 1990. They released Die Like a Pig to critical acclaim, The Sodomization of the Free World Nation to critical disdain, and Pop-Culture Junkie to the shock of their enemies.

Due to their big mouths and lack of pseudo-piety, they were derided and disdained by almost everyone in the Los Angeles music scene. They were having their shows shut down by the police, due to rumors about instigating riots. They were banned by almost every promoter in the area; after announcing a show, they would find the gig cancelled by anonymous accusations. They were even banned from Rock for Life because they actually said out loud abortion is murder.

The project has never shut down, they only put it on hiatus when they had more important things to do. The name was often changed to throw off their enemies. Now that they have allies in high places, they can play under their own name again.

No one quits this band except by death. And we have had one member die, AKA MR. Scab their old live trumpet player. R.I.P. The members of The Terminal Generation consider the band a thorn in their flesh that they must bear with patiently.”
