Demo Review: Turbo "Demo 2023" (Turbo Records) by Devin J. Meaney

Band: Turbo
Location: London
Country: United Kingdom
Genre: Crust punk, hardcore
Demo: Demo 2023
Format: Cassette, digital
Label: Turbo Records
Release date: March 24, 2023
Early in the morning I made my way to YouTube in search of black metal. I typed “black metal 2023” into the search bar—and after a brief search I came to “Demo 2023” by Turbo! Strangely enough this isn’t black metal—but as it was uploaded by the Felopunk account I am assuming this just showed up because I have listened to a few uploads by this account recently.
This is actually hardcore punk! The grimy crusty kind that I know and love! First and foremost I need to throw it out there that even though this isn’t grind I am highly reminded of a “much punkier” Napalm Death! Napalm Death does have some roots based in punk so even though this comparison is a bit of a stretch it’s not exactly insanely far from the mark either.
Featuring 6 pummeling tracks in just over 8 minutes this is a short release—and even though I was initially searching for black metal I am glad I found this. It might be a bit standard but it by no means is terrible. In fact, it is highly enjoyable and I listened to it twice while writing this!
This was released March 24th of 2023! I don’t know if there is any more available from these guys but I will absolutely check anything out as it comes my way—and I can make a stab that you should as well! -Devin J. Meaney
