TURBID NORTH

In 2007 we left North Pole, Alaska, for Fort Worth, Texas—far away from any friends and family—determined to play music exclusively and relentlessly. Now, after a few challenging years, Turbid North has three remaining members, guitarist/singer Nick Forkel from North pole, Chris O'Toole - a bassist from Dunstable, England, and Jono Garrett a punishing drummer from Texas. We write music that’s meaningful to us, musically and lyrically. Our last release “Orogeny” features several chilling stories of human survival in the harsh, arctic land, set to inspired death metal music. The songs also explore our love of other forms of metal, as well as our collective interest in many other styles of music. We’re eager and hungry to stay out on the road and share our unique brand of “Alaskan Mountain Metal” with the rest of the world.




 
That title track fucking rips, which will surprise only people who aren’t already familiar with Turbid North. I know this must sound weird, but: the song basically sounds like Crowbar and The Red Chord got drunk and fucked and birthed “Eyes Alive” as a result.

“The Pyramid Drones” is unrelentingly heavy and overall a super well-written track.
