Replacing a frontman is never an easy thing to do. While a select few acts have pulled it off admirably (Black Sabbath, AC/DC), usually the best course of action is to either change your name, or just call it a day. While Hank Von Helvete wasn’t actually Turbonegro’s original vocalist, he was the face of the band, and who most people would think of when the group’s name came up. With Von Helvete parting ways with the group for a second time, the group have soldiered on with British-based replacement Tony Sylvester, a.k.a. the Duke of Nothing. Sylvester doesn’t have the vocal range of his predecessor, but he has a gruff aggressive style that complements the group’s attitude perfectly. As such, Sexual Harassment, the group’s ninth full-length album, is closer in sound and spirit to career highlight Apocalypse Dudes than anything the band has released in over a decade.
