Album Review

In the space of less than a decade, which included only one American tour and four proper studio albums, Turbonegro's contributions and accomplishments cannot be sullied by their untimely departure. In fact, from the arc of this band's career development — following from the noise rock debut of Hot Cars through the glorious, razor-sharp glitter doom of Apocalypse Dudes — it's evident that Turbonegro indeed had the material and the will to continuously develop and expand their sound. Never Is Forever is a searching rock disc recorded and issued initially in 1994. Though not as punishing, loud, or clearly directed as the follow-up, Ass Cobra, it is nonetheless a powerful document, even if Turbonegro is clearly still searching for their ultimate voice.

Blending traces of punk with such influences as Alice Cooper, Quiet Riot, Mötley Crüe, and Judas Priest, Turbonegro's late-'90s recordings were over the top and proud of it. Although all of its members are Norwegian, all of the band's lyrics...
