Turbid North (Unearth) Debut “Slaves” Music Video


Turbid North have released their new single “Slaves” online, complete with a music video inspired by the 1982 sci-fi classic ‘Blade Runner‘. The Texas trio feature vocalist/guitarist Nick Forkel, bassist Chris O’Toole (Unearth) and drummer Jono Garrett (Shock Withdrawl, Mos Generator).

Forkel also helmed the aforementioned music video, stating of it:

“‘Slaves‘ is about being a prisoner of your own mind. We all create battles in our heads. The video is a direct homage to Blade Runner’s opening scene. That’s the vibe I was going for: Blade Runner meets Metropolis.”

As for the album itself, Forkel offered, “It’s all part of one story. It’s a collection of songs that delves into the downfall and self-destruction of a person. I went through some personal things that spawned this idea. Real experiences influenced these songs, lyrically and musically. It’s darker and more personal for me than any other Turbid North record.”

The band’s new album “The Decline” will be out January 20th and is available to pre-order now at Bandcamp.
