Terror could almost unanimously be considered the biggest "modern hardcore" act, save for possibly Hatebreed, whose categorization as either "modern" or "hardcore" is questionable. Apparently due to this distinction, Vogel and company decided they possessed the moral authority to lay down a set of rules for genre adherents to follow, and Live By The Code is the anthem for these. With no consideration paid to the lyrics, one could be forgiven for assuming the cardinal "code" of hardcore is to avoid change or evolution at all costs.
For Terror's Live by the Code, the L.A. hardcore act crushes 11 songs in under 30 minutes. Now on Victory Records, with vocalist Scott Vogel, Martin Stewart and Jordan Posner on guitars, David Wood on bass, and drummer Nick Jett rounding out the rhythm section, they continue to rock out the same cross section of unforgivingly brutal hardcore punk, metal, and thrash as their previous releases.
