Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

It's hard to take Apocalypse Dudes seriously, so it's best not to. Turbonegro's greatest album is a mix of all the best excesses of 70s and 80s hard rock and metal, with influences taking in Motley Crue, Judas Priest and Alice Cooper, all delivered with a punk-rock attitude. The result out-Spinal-Taps Spinal Tap, from the fake prog intro to "The Age of Pamparius" (which takes a swipe at Rush before launching into pomp-rock excess) to the call-to-arms anthem "Rock Against Ass". And while song titles such as "Don't Say Motherfucker, Motherfucker", "Rendezvous with Anus" and "Good Head" virtually guarantee little radio airplay, they have enough catchy hooks to appeal to fans of fellow Scandinavian rockers (and new label-mates) the Hives, with lowbrow, so-dumb-they're-clever lyrics that should win over fans of the Farrelly Brothers. --Robert Burrow

Format: Audio CD
This is the biggest, boldest and most ROCK album i own. After the "death punk" of "Ass Cobra", Turbo =negro returned dirtier, harder, more riff heavy, and - with the addition of Euroboy on lead guitar, some ofthe most squealy guitar solos known to human kind.
With amusing song titles and amusing lyrics it would be easy to dismiss "Apocolipse Dudes" at first glance and a jokey faux gay band there only to get a reaction. There is so much more to them, with even Nick Olivie of the Queens Of The Stone Age on record as saying this is the best rock album fo the decade. It really has everything you want. Hard rock riffs, fantastically fast solos and shout along anthems for all of rock kind.
Birth. School. Turbonegro. Death.

From start to finish this is a seriously impressive rock album. At first listen, a lot of people will be put off by the unusual lyrics and i wouldn't blame them. If tey go into the experience looking for a formulaic rock album with some "tortured soul" singing about his crappy life, old girlfriend or how much he likes to rock, your going to be dissapointed. Hank from hell's lyrics wouldn't fit into any of the above catagories. As long as you don't take what he sings about deadly seriously and just go along for the ride you'll be in for a treat
What makes this such an impressive album is the amazing guitar work by euroboy. His unique riffs, combined with the drums and bass come to make a glorious whole.
Every element of this album completment eachother perfectly for a sumpreme piece of musical work. If you don't own anything else by Turbonegro get this first, its their best album.

I bought this album about 3 months ago after hearing it in a random record shop. Turbonegro are a 'death punk' band- don't be put off by the name or genre they created because they seriously rock! They do hard punk with classic rock inspired leads and a glam attitude, a combination that doesnt sound good on paper but just listen to this album and you'll understand why they are so raved about. The key is not to take Turbo seriously- and that doesnt mean they are a comedy punk band that wears out after time- they just dont let clever lyrics or political agendas get in the way of having fun, they write about getting good head and baking pizzas instead, with a faux-gay stage demeana. Its hard to believe that this album is 8 years old (thought Ok Computer was the best thing to come out in 1997? think again!) it still sounds fresh and original in 2005. Although all of the album is classic standout tracks are 'Age Of Pamparius' a prog rock piss take about pizza 'Selfdestructo Bust' and 'Good Head' So if you are fed up with Green Day punk then I suggest you put on your denims and listen to punk that has attitude, the true holders of the punk torch!

From the start of the Age of Pamparius, you know you're in for a treat. This is excellent uplifting rock - it's a little more polished that their previous offerings and I wouldn't say punk (or death punk - whatever that is).

An excellent way to get rid of the morning blues and my all time favourite music for the gym!
