Terrorfakt is an industrial-power noise musical project from New York City, and created in response to the events of September 11, 2001. They are currently signed to Metropolis Records.[1]

Although the project involved multiple members in its early days, it is now the de facto solo project of Benjamin Vincent Dewalt (who also works under the names DJ Hellraver, and T-Faktor).[2] Having produced earlier albums, in 2003 they debuted on Tinman Records with Deconstruction. Prior to the Tinman Records release, a different version of Deconstruction was released on CD-R independently.

In 2004, Terrorfakt signed to Metropolis Records and released "Cold Steel World" and its follow-up remix album Cold World Remixes.[3] In 2006 "Teethgrinder" was released on Metropolis Records, followed by 2009's Re/Evolution, which featured re-mastered versions of select tracks from Deconstruction (now out of print and hard to find), "Reconstruction" (also out of print) and some new and unreleased tracks.

Terrorfakt live[edit]

Terrorfakt has toured extensively since their inception. The band has toured with, and in support of, such acts as: Haujobb, E-Craft, Funker Vogt, Manufactura, and Hocico,[4] in addition to performing live at large industrial music festivals; such as Montreal's C.O.M.A., and Kinetik.[5]
