The official music video for Turbid North’s new single ‘The Road’ is streaming now.
The track is off the Texas trio’s new album The Decline, out January 20th. Pre-order on Bandcamp.
Turbid North guitarist/vocalist Nick Fokel said: Suffer today, live another day. The music video conveys the song’s message through apocalyptic imagery reminiscent of the novel by Cormac McCarthy, which shares the title.
The Decline, Turbid North’s first new album in seven years, is a transcendent experience. It’s the perfect balance of speed, seismic intensity and mesmerizing beauty. While Forkel and his bandmates bassist Chris O’Toole (Unearth) and drummer Jono Garrett (Shock Withdrawal, Mos Generator) show off his Napalm Death-level grindcore chops, “The Road” The band Doom shows his rock side. This song is his 12/8 rocker with a throbbing glow that rivals the likes of Metallica, Crowbar and Mastodon.
Formed in Alaska in the early 2000s, Turbid North moved to Fort Worth, Texas in 2007 and released their debut album Orogeny in 2011 on Unearth frontman Trevor Phipps’ Ironclad Recordings. Forkel, O’Toole and Garrett’s current line-up solidified in his 2012. His sophomore album Eyes Alive was released in 2015.
