I'm doing both albums in one review really because I think the story behind this band would have been told twice if I did, and I remember receiving some flak about doing it in by Templar's review. So, sorry if you got a problem with that but I don't feel like repeating myself or boring you twice. .
I'm doing both albums in one review really because I think the story behind this band would have been told twice if I did, and I remember receiving some flak about doing it in by Templar's review. So, sorry if you got a problem with that but I don't feel like repeating myself or boring you twice. So on with the review:
One of the darkest and most disturbing bands that have ever formed, Turbonegro is re-releasing their classic albums 96's Ass Cobra and 98's Apocalypse Dudes on Epitaph, and with the lead singer finally released from the Italian mental institution that halted the band in late 1998, a headlining slot on three major European music festivals, and a new album coming this spring they are ready to take the world by storm. This band brings together the theatrical antics of early Alice Cooper, with the urgency and power of Black Flag, mixes with the striped down driving rock of MC5 and the Stooges, and provides a healthy dose of attitude as well to create their own distinct form of rock that many have dubbed leather rock. Not to be taken lightly, this band can not be described in words, as much as a person needs to hear them to appreciate the power that they possess.
