They're back with a new face at the helm. But have they done their legacy justice?
For a band well past their 20th anniversary, the departure of their frontman was always going to raise doubts, but Turbonegro have returned sounding leaner, meaner and hungrier than they have in a decade. New vocalist Tony Sylvester’s gravel-throated tones lend a savage edge to the bar-room brawl soundtrack of ‘Shake Your Shit Machine’, and his new brethren’s supercharged riff attack is as tight and deranged as ever on the likes of ‘Dude Without A Face’ and ‘TNA (The Nihilistic Army)’. They’ve yet to top their ‘98 classic ‘Apocalypse Dudes’, but these aging death-punks can still blast your arse away.
