Review: Turbid North - Orogeny

Review: Turbid North - Orogeny

Bred in Alaska, now residing in Texas, it’s no surprise that shred-metal outfit Turbid North like things big, building their songs around distortion-fattened riffs that rise like mountain ranges above the rumbling, double-kick ferocity of the drumming. Similarly, the writing on Orogeny tends toward the epic, with the majestic, album-closing “Floating the Ionosphere” clocking in at over 12 minutes. That isn’t just post-prog indulgence, either; there’s a genuine sense of narrative to these songs, and the band’s willingness to augment standard-issue shred with fat, old-school lead guitar work (particularly on “The Hunter”) brings palpable drama to the music.
