Turbid North Welcomes New “Patients” To Their Unhinged Death-Grind Madhouse (Video Premiere)
Turbid North are an amalgam of metallic fury. Formed in Alaska and now based in Fort Worth, Texas, the band plays varying styles of grind and sludge with a touch of what gave progressive rock an otherworldly tinge as it transitioned from the ‘60s to the ‘70s. Their upcoming album The Decline releases next month and showcases exactly those differing styles that Turbid North have managed to master in the seven-plus years since their last full length, Eyes Alive. Each track flows effortlessly into the next, somehow feeling like a different band each time, or at least an evolution. The Decline undergoes a clear sonic progression as it makes its way through the entire 45 minutes.
Today we're premiering the latest music video for the grindcore-styled track “Patients”. Frontman Nick Forkel had this to say about the track:
“Patients" is about mental health. This one deals with more of the violent end of that spectrum. Very much influenced by 'A Clockwork Orange' when coming up with the lyrics and visuals.
All of this comes together with a red and black aesthetic that is both vibrant and violent at the same time, much like the deathgrind that influenced this track would also provide. If you want a powerful first impression of what Turbid North can provide, look no further than “Patients”.
The Decline releases January 20th independently via the band's Bandcamp page.
