DECEMBER

sample 1
sample 2


live at 3D RADIO
DECEMBER was written acoustically over 4 years ago and played that way for some time, as it suited. Later on it was played in a toned down electric manner which sounded quite good also. The only recording of DECEMBER is this acoustic version, live at 3D RADIO in Adelaide (musical acompany harmonica, bongo).


SIGHS &
MOANS


sample 1

4 track at A.G.S
SIGHS & MOANS was written in early 1997 and remains one of TERATO's best to date. It displays smooth melodic undertones from rhythm guitarist (McCarthy) and bass guitarist (Jaynes) complimented with brilliant emotional lead work and refined drumming. The song flows in such a relaxed mellow way that it could very well be perfect.


SANCTUARY

sample 1
sample 2


16 track at S.A.E
SANCTUARY was the very first song written going on 5 years ago by McCarthy. The compelling laid back melodic tune of the rhythm guitar sets the mood whilst the lead guitar of Fullarton expresses such brilliant emotion once again. Deep responsive drumming and bass keep time and even cut into their own duo during the quiet bridge.


DISCARDIA

sample 1
sample 2


2 track live at S.S.S
DISCARDIA was written in 1996 and was the first song of TERATO's to be pressed for CD (recorded live). Building in intensity throughout, DISCARDIA captures the feeling of the pop surf culture. Its fun up-tempo approach catches the listeners attention without any deafening overtones or overdone guitaring.


PAIN &
PREJUDICE


sample 1
sample 2


16 track at S.A.E
PAIN & PREJUDICE has evolved over 5 years into a brutal melody and it shows at gigs when the crowd react in amazement to what they just heard. This song has the ultimate in melodic grooves and uses it in conjuction with heavy metal riffing and tribal type drumming. Although "prejudice" is part of the title, in no way do the lyrics or the song support prejudice.


RETRIBUTION

sample 1
sample 2


4 track at A.G.S
RETRIBUTION is the latest in TERATO's repertoire. With ambient, on the edge guitaring and varied off beat drumming styles, character and personality are ever so present. The vocal approach is unique where calm spoken word parts are used for build up, and fiercely emotional singing and screams add the intense passion and feeling.


TAKE ME BACK

sample 1

16 track at S.A.E
TAKE ME BACK is TERATO's answer to comercial music. Up-tempo, energised and with a pop feel this song goes down well at shows. TERATO hold back from creating the full comercial sound as this is not what they are. For TERATO to comprimise their exciting lead work and grunt would be to lose their trademark sound.


CURTZ CURSE

sample 1

4 track at A.G.S
CURTZ CURSE, the all instrumental masterpiece. This song takes a journey through varing styles and tempo changes providing the listener with musical excitment. Why no vocals you may ask, well we found it awkward to write appropriate lyrics and felt that they would only cramp the song in the long run.
