Wojciech Hoffmann (guitars): „Turbo’s sixteen studio album features thrilling and fast tracks which should satisfy all fans of classic hard&heavy sounds. We do believe that with this album we can easily compete with the elite of the metal scene.” Earlier on he said: “We feel very comfortable playing the music of our youth. That’s why we plan to stick to classic heavy metal.”
