Turmoil - _From Bleeding Hands_
(Century Media, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
Heavy hardcore music from this Pennsylvania quintet on this 10-song outing, as the majority of the music on Turmoil's _From Bleeding Hands_ lies buried under a powerful onslaught of gritty vocals and a treacherous stomp of beats. Having shared stages with the likes of Madball, Earth Crisis and Snapcase over the last little while since their inception in 1992 and release of their Europe only EP _Who Says Time Heals All Wounds_ in 1994, I guess it is fair to say that since their debut album the band has strengthened their sound and delivery. With the death-ish/hardcore vocal styling of singer John Gula leading the assault of noise on numbers like 'New Media,' 'Choke,' 'Evolution Of Lies' and 'These Bridges,' the music on _FBH_ is quite satisfactory but as time goes on (as is the case with most hardcore records) the music becomes monotonous and leaves the listener (i.e. myself) looking for something else to throw on. Got to give credit to Turmoil for flowing with fury and aggression on most tracks, a saviour factor from a less positive review.
