Turbonegro (known as Turboneger in Norway) is a Norwegian punk rock band from Oslo, formed in 1989. The band combines glam rock, hardcore punk and heavy metal into a style the band describes themselves as "deathpunk".

They played some local concerts, and made an EP, including 3 songs, "CIA/KGB", "Supertstjerne" and "Lovesong", written by Thomas. Read more on Last.fm

It appears that Finland is the most metal country in the world, but Norway is unquestionably the home of black metal, which is pretty metal. Norway is also home to By:Larm Festival, which is occurring on 13-16 February in Oslo. It’s a great place for showcasing the finest in fresh Scandinavian talent of all genres, but obviously there’s loads of metal there.

We’d have made a nifty “Thrash Hits goes to By:Larm” header, but we’re not going. However, while you don’t need telling to go and see bands like Blood Command, Turbonegro and Shining, we can still suggest some other bands you should go and see. So…

When it comes to Turbonegro, there are only two types of people in this world – those of us who’ve been through it and lived to tell the tale, and cowards with no fire in their souls. We shoved Ben Gibson down the front to take photos, and pushed Hugh Platt back into the mosh pit.

Six things we learned when we let Turbonegro have their way with us in London:

Despite Turbonegro releasing their actually-bloody-fantastic comeback album back in June, what with Albums Of The Year lists preying heavily on our minds recently, we’ve been re-playing the aforementioned Sexual Harassment an awful lot recently. The fact that they’ve just released a new video for the album’s second single is yet another reason for us to give this album another spin and say “this album is far, far better than you thought it was”.

In addition to those sweet as you like on-stage photos of Cancer Bats’ Main Stage triumph we showed you last weekend, our man Gobinder Jhitta took a shedload of photos at this year’s Leeds Festival.
