Thrash Hits

August 20th, 2010

Turbowolf to tear up Europe with Korn? Fuck yeah!

So there I was…sitting on the tube on our way to work, when Turbowolf’s manager sat down next to me. “Hey, guess what!” he says. “Turbowolf are opening for Korn in Europe!”. And I was speaking for pretty much everyone here at Thrash Hits when I replied “Fucking Hell Yeah!”

Now I know my review of Korn’s most recent release was hardly glowing, but that doesn’t mean I can’t see that this is A Big Fucking Deal. They’re still arguably one of the biggest touring concerns in metal (as shown by their second billing on the European Ozzfests this year), so for them to take a relatively-unknown band like Turbowolf out on tour earns them plenty of brownie points in my book.

I’m not sure exactly what dates of Korn’s European jaunt that Turbowolf are going to be added to, but if you call the land mass that is continental Europe home, and you’re planning on going to see Korn this Autumn, we strongly recommend you get down to the venue early doors to catch Bristol’s finest.

Watch us muck about with Turbowolf backstage at Sonisphere Festival 2010:

We’ve been big fans of Turbowolf since before Thrash Hits even existed, so we’re chuffed to bits that it’s coming together for them now. We’ll even forgive the fact that they keep teasing us by telling us that their album is done and that we haven’t heard it yet. We’ll give them some grief about it once they get back from swanning around with Jonathan Davis and co., as after that they’re embarking on a monster tour of the UK in support of Dinosaur Pile-Up.
