On March 9th, a legendary album in the making entitled “The Free Life” by Turbowolf will be released via SO Records.  Keep in mind that Madness To Creation does not throw around the word “legendary” when it comes to an album.

Out of Bristol, United Kingdom, Turbowolf is composed of Chris Georgiadis on vocals/synthesizers, Andy Ghosh on guitars, Lianna Lee Davies on bass, and Blake Davis on drums.  In this journey on this record, Turbowolf received a personal endorsement from Sir Elton John himself.  They took this album, torn it down again, and rebuilt it to make it to where this could be the classic album that people will talk about as long as rock music exists.

“All for you, not for you, the free life” is the intro of a smooth English accent voice in “No No No”.  I am immediately awestruck by the frantic, yet controlled pace of the opening track and the seamless intertwining of Andy on guitars and Lianna on bass.  Blake’s drumming is impeccable and Chris’s vocals immediately sound snarky and is chocked full of spirit and attitude.  The chorus immediately takes you on a singalong journey, then it transitions ever so smoothly and delicately into some brief psychedelic feels while the song comes crashing into you like a beautiful wreck.

The chaos brings the listener to a track called “Capital X”.  “Capital X” completely has that garage rock/punk feel which allows the listener to unpack another layer of Turbowolf.  The bass and guitars are tuned down quite low in this one, which allows for grooves that are thicker than southern fried biscuits and gravy that are from Grandma’s house while she doesn’t care about your cholesterol levels or that your arteries will be slathered with said gravy.  The transition in the bridge to change it up to a midtempo rocker makes it absolutely memorable, it makes you shout “DAMN!”.

Sebastian Grainger of Death From Above joins Turbowolf in the ditty entitled “Cheap Magic”.  The chorus is too awesome for me to simply type in this review.  The bass line is just disgusting and I mean that in a good way.  Mike Kerr of Royal Blood joins the band in “Domino”, which allows the listener to hear Mike and Chris exchange barbs with one another throughout this track.  As if there isn’t enough layers to unpack to this band, Chantal Brown of Vodun also makes appearances throughout this album to make it positively psychedelically scintillating to the senses.

In “Very Bad”, I think the band is becoming increasingly frantic yet it seems so controlled in the drumming by Blake Davis(which I have not highlighted nearly enough).  I cannot get over how seamless the progression changes, this is absolutely snarky and if Turbowolf releases this as a single, they will blow up quicker than the fireworks on the 4th of July and spread quicker than gasoline on a forest fire.  The drumming in the outro absolutely sounds enraging and frantic and the bass is absolutely disgusting.

I have never said this before, but I am absolutely wiped out after listening to “The Free Life” by Turbowolf.  I will not have to wait any longer to see if there is THAT album that people will be talking about for years to come.  I have it right here with “The Free Life” by Turbowolf.  In the world of cubic zirconia, Turbowolf has given us a diamond with some gemstones thrown into the mix.  Madness To Creation gives this a 10 out of 10 star rating!  Here is the track listing below!
