Turbid North Sign With Ironclad Recordings
Yes folks — it is true. I love vagina. Wait…I’m sorry. I blacked out for a second there.
Alaskan mountain metal outfit Turbid North have signed with Ironclad Recordings, the label run by Unearth’s Trevor Phipps.
Ironclad will re-release Turbid North’s 2010 independent album Orogeny as a digipak CD and digital download on June 21.
“We got their self released disc a few months ago and it is in constant rotation here at Ironclad,” says Phipps. “With only a few copies released, we wanted to broaden the exposure of the band and this phenomenal album.”
Orogeny, according to Turbid North’s Nick Forkel, was inspired, in part, by “a book of Alaskan survival stories; one of the stories struck me as an inspiration. It was the story of this hunter who was trapped in the wilderness at the height of winter and things got worse and worse for him. His will to survive and his hunter’s instinct helped him to overcome this hell and the album follows that. It’s about overcoming the odds no matter how grim and the survival instinct we all have.”
Raditudinal. Sorry about that first graph. It’s been a weird morning. A feisty lady who has taken a shining to me sent a naughty, naughty picture to my inbox and it’s got my brains all scrambled.
