Holland's FaceCulture recently conducted an interview with Hank von Helvete from Norwegian deathpunk band TURBONEGRO. Watch the interview at www.faceculture.nl.
TURBONEGRO has just released a new album, entitled "Retox". According to the band, "Retox" is "hard, heavy, hilarious, terrifying, offensive, dumb-ass, thought-provoking and plain genocidal all at once. It IS rock. Total rock. Total Turbo. A record which, to borrow a lyric from its riotous lead single, 'Do You Do You Dig Destruction', will hit you like 'brass-knuckles and a 2-by-4.' It is the sound," they add, "of cold steel slashing through hot leather," a sound which comes in part courtesy of John Agnello, producer of THE HOLD STEADY's "Boys and Girls in America" album, who mixed "Retox" with the band in New York.
Each of the 12 songs that made the cut rank amongst TURBO's hottest to date. Opening with the gleefully nihilistic "We're Gonna Drop The Atom Bomb", "Retox" is jam-packed with outsider anthems. Witness the baldie loser "Stuck Googling for Wigs" and the moving tribute to the obese that is "Everybody Loves a Chubby Dude".
