New Turbonegro - Retox

Gbus  said about 7 years ago  or at  6:34PM on Tuesday, May 15 2007 in music news

The Official Number Four Formula Band in the Universe (the first three being AC/DC, The Ramones and Slayer) are back from hunting the mountains of Norway with a black leather bag jammed full of 11 bleeding specimen of that enigmatic, untameable beast commonly known as Deathpunk. Live to enjoy it, if you have what it takes.

A classic rock band with a distinct sound, true pride in their punk rock roots and expressing themselves with the authority and skills of a veteran group, Turbonegro don't give a fuck what you think. Turbonegro are the high priests in the Church of Destruction!

Retox – The Album

1.We're Gonna Drop The Atom Bomb
2. Welcome To The Garbage Dump
3. Hell Toupée
4. Stroke The Shaft
5. No, I'm Alpha Male
6. Do You Do You Dig Destruction
7. I Wanna Come
8. You Must Bleed/All Night Long
9. Hot And Filthy
10. Boys From Nowhere
11. Every Body Loves A Chubby Dude
12. What Is Rock?!

** Australian Ltd.Edition to also have 2 bonus cuts ‘back In Denim’ and ‘Into The Void’ **

Turbonegro about Retox:

“We're back, with a record that hits you in the head like
brass-knuckles and a two-by-four!”

“If Retox was a colour, it would be a darker shade of BLINDING WHITE!”

”Retox is a nihilistic homo punk metal bikermovie: Full of speed, power, humiliation and freedom!”

”We survived Grunge, Britpop, House music, hip-hop, new rock revolution, dance rock, but maybe not new rave..? People say we've been making the same record for 10 years, that's not right. We've been making the same record for 4-5 years.”

“Retox is rock music that's been up for 5 days without sleeping, able to see more than most people, but not seeing anything exactly clear.”

“Retox is the sound of cold steel slashing through hot leather!”

Retox is to be locally released June 23, 2007

Just what everybody needs.


kuroneko  said about 7 years ago:

reserves judgement


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

sits on fence next to kuro


Timebomb  said about 7 years ago:

are we over them yet? early posts from mono heavyweights leans towards yes.


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

hah

so not everyone dug party animals, and others would say its been declining returns for a few albums now, but theres still a sense they could come out and do something awesome.


kuroneko  said about 7 years ago:

I need to hear the bloody thing before I can pass judgement. It could be a steaming pile, it could be the best album of the year, but if 'Party Animals' is anything to go on, it might as well be a Lordi album.


kuroneko  said about 7 years ago:

oh, what nony said.


Lorenzo St Dubois  said about 7 years ago:

I don't need to hear it. Please, let it pass without me hearing it.


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

waits for leak


Timebomb  said about 7 years ago:

yr such a coolsie rigid


manity  said about 7 years ago:

Just saw them play in Hamburg and they only played 3 new songs. The new ones had the same shonky metal-light sound as Party Animals. Only 3 new tracks played on the tour for the album does not fill me with confidence for "the sound of cold steel slashing through hot leather" on the new LP.
Shit hot live show though.

Presents leak to anonymous on platter

Listened to one song. Sounded pretty boring. But i've never been a fan.


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

yup, got it as well, had a oink message

havn't listened yet, will wait until morn.


littlearch  said about 7 years ago:

well???


eastside  said about 7 years ago:

embarassing


TheOtherGuyFromWham  said about 7 years ago:

What? Are these guys not cool anymore?

I reckon it sounds pretty good.


Inactivist  said about 7 years ago:

Hmmm. I gave Party Animals way too much credit for what they've done in the past. They better fuckin' get it right this time.


Cranky Hanky  said about 7 years ago:

fuck up sooks.


ladyboy  said about 7 years ago:

i had a friend say once "turbonegro are so gay, fuckin scando homo's".....


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

finally giving this another spin..

so far, not as glam as party animals..

hmm, probably back to scandanavian leather?


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

actually, i think the problem is they've written some good songs in the past, many which have become anthemic, now they're trying to write anthems from get go, when all they really need to do is write good songs and it should sort itself out.

probably not the first or last band to do that.


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

yup, trying to hard to be smartarses, "everybody loves a chubby dude" is pretty average.


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

last song toughest thing on there, bags out bob rock and pronounces kill city better then funhouse.

hmm


Lorenzo St Dubois  said about 7 years ago:

so iconoclastic!


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

yeah..

save your cash for the new blacklist record, from what ive heard its way better then this...

and they'd probably win in a fight.


Mo  said about 7 years ago:

i really liked party animals :-(

how would this be a bad thing?


Cranky Hanky  said about 7 years ago:

i quite like it. it's a step back in the right direction.


Mo  said about 7 years ago:

more punk?


scallywag  said about 7 years ago:

not unless the dictators have released another album


Cranky Hanky  said about 7 years ago:

mo it's just not as glam.... heh maybe it's not for you.


Barman  said about 7 years ago:

Dirtier sound. A few predictable songs though.


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

just not that catchy, not much reason to go back to it, rather put on ass cobra, or apoc dudes, or even scandanavian leather.


Barman  said about 7 years ago:

Apoc Dudes = their peak.

Impossible to match.


clogwork orange  said about 7 years ago:

I cherish the first time I saw them live. I only knew them from the Get it on video and was totally blown away. I have seen them twice since and they just didn't look very exciting.
like Barman says, Apocalypse Dudes is their absolute best, followed by Ass Cobra. And there are some good songs on Scandinavian Leather too; Drenched in Blood, Gimme some.
Apart from all this I find that whole Turbojugend thing a bit of a joke.


Cranky Hanky  said about 6 years ago:

you can always spot a faux trbngr fan.... sighting dudes or cobra as the best. we all know that never is forever is the rock opera masterpiece of all time. retox is growing on me. must get the vinyl.
