Turmoil

The Process Of…

Century Media

Forget all you’ve heard about the “Earth Crisis” sound in hardcore. Turmoil is what the future should sound like. Their latest, The Process of… , perfectly envisions the coming millennium: frantic, unstable, cold and harsh. Their sound is totally original, taking as much from hardcore as from death metal and still keeping it sounding no more like one than the other. The music is chaotic, filled with furious chording that strays from just your typical 5ths backed by an incredible rhythm section that makes you feel as if armageddon is coming out of your speakers. Vocalist John Gula’s throat is an asset for this band that probably won’t last forever, seeing as how his Obituary-influenced screams tear through everything to give an introspective look at life. This is definitely Turmoil’s best release yet, sounding less glossed and with Johann DeLucabut taking on more different time signatures than before, some more classic hardcore beats, downright doomy songs (“Impending Doom Theory,” aptly titled) and some seemingly southern rock sounding riffs, all while still being able to tear your damn head off before you even have a chance to blink. The Process of… is beyond incredible, beyond boundaries and leaps and bounds beyond any hardcore release you’ll ever hear this year, or even ever.

Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
