“WHAT THE FUCK” – possibly one of the greatest openings to an album ever. Turmoil basically took the words right out of my mouth. Combined with its discordance and urgency right off the bat, those angst-filled words – “What the fuck are you looking at?” – delivered by vocalist Jon Gula are a punch right in the gut at the very start of “Playing Dead,” the first track off their seminal 1999 release, The Process Of. Although my introduction to Turmoil came many years later, even when I first heard this record, there was still an innovative quality about the release. That’s because The Process Of was way ahead of its time and, dare I say, groundbreaking. With it, the highly underrated Philadelphia five-piece helped establish the foundation for metalcore and many of the bands to come.
