Turbund Sturmwerk * Sturmgeweiht (cd 2002 rabauken rec.)

I have known Turbund for a quite long time, that is to say, I got the debut-lp as soon as it came out, since I was in quite good contact with Loki in that time. That must have been somewhere late 1995/early 1996. The recordings on this cd are from 1992 though! I suppose I was still a metalhead in that time!! If I understand the booklet correctly, these are live-recordings of a concert that already then was plagued by antifa, but somehow did continue.
Anyway, I guess these are some of the earlier recordings of Turbund, so you may expect something more primitive than their more recent recordings. This is undoubtely true. What is also true is that Turbund shows that ever since the beginning they have had a strange and unique sound. The recordings on this cd are so strange, that they often become irritating, but here and there lean towards brilliance. It is more noisy than on the the full-lengths and there are more samples. A very nice document of old times, but a large part of the 45 minutes as by far not as brilliant as the lp and the “Weltenbrand” cd. BUT, the last track did make it to the lp and there is an early version (?) of “Orkan Im Haar” ( from the 7″). Strange that the picture of the original cover isn’t in the booklet (see Turbund webpage).
