Turbulent Times [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
During Grief's ten-year existence, the influential doom metallers recorded several albums. But not every Grief recording came out on a full-length album -- in the '90s, Grief's work also came out on various 7" and 10" records both singles and EPs. Although most labels quit releasing vinyl in the late '80s, there were some indies that, in the '90s, still enjoyed providing vinyl -- and Grief often recorded for those indies. Unfortunately, many of Grief's vinyl releases went out of print and became difficult to find; that's why Turbulent Times was desperately needed. This collection, which Southern Lord assembled in 2002, spans 1992-1998 and focuses on Grief's rarities. ...

During Grief's ten-year existence, the influential doom metallers recorded several albums. But not every Grief recording came out on a full-length album -- in the '90s, Grief's work also came out on various 7" and 10" records both singles and EPs. Although most labels quit releasing vinyl in the late '80s, there were some indies that, in the '90s, still enjoyed providing vinyl -- and Grief often recorded for those indies. Unfortunately, many of Grief's vinyl releases went out of print and became difficult to find; that's why Turbulent Times was desperately needed. This collection, which Southern Lord assembled in 2002, spans 1992-1998 and focuses on Grief's rarities. Most of the material originally came out on vinyl, including "Green Vegetable Matter," "Fucked Upstairs," and "My Dilemma." But two of the tracks are previously unreleased; alternate versions of "Depression" and "Earthworm" didn't come out on any of the records or CDs that Grief offered in the '90s. Because Turbulent Times covers a six-year period, anyone who hears this CD in its entirety will be exposed to different Grief lineups -- Grief had one lineup change after another in the '90s, and that can adversely affect the quality of a band's work. Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, and Uriah Heep are three examples of bands that had too many personnel changes for their own good. But even though Grief was a revolving door, this CD is fairly consistent. The band usually sounds quite focused and, whatever the lineup, Grief's blend of slow, Sabbath-minded grooves and screaming, tortured, grindcore-like vocals makes for a brutal dose of doom metal. Although not recommended to casual listeners, Turbulent Times is a disc that Grief's hardcore fans will want to acquire.

    The kings of the genre...

    Grief were very heavy, very doomy, and very sludgy. They were quite possibly the best band ever at this style of music. If you ever feel like you have it bad or that your life sucks, read the lyric sheet to their records while listening to the music and you will have to feel better about your situation! Grief will be your new therapist for a whole lot less cash. Buy all of their records. Will somebody reissue their first album please!!!!
