Hank von Hell of Turbonegro is dead? – Obituary – cause of death

RIP to a true legend. Hank Von Hell was not only the front man of one of my favorite bands ever (Turbonegro), he was a sweet guy. Thoughts to his family and Turbojugend everywhere.

Hans Erik Dyvik Husby (born June 15, 1972), also known as Hank von Helvete and Hank von Helvete Hank von Hell (Hank von Hell), a Norwegian musician, is famous for being the lead singer of the punk rock band Turbonegro.

Von Hell’s former band Turbonegro is known for its witty humor dealing with gay aesthetics and punk rock antics and the formation of a genre they call “death punk.” The band was formed in the late 1980s and released some records before disbanding in 1998 because of von Hell’s heroin addiction that prevented him from performing. After recovering, Turbonegro reunited in 2002, but the band stopped indefinitely in 2010. The main reason is his new lifestyle as a sober family man.

In 2009, he tied for number one with Maria Solheim on the Norwegian singles chart with “Rom for alle”. This song has remained No. 1 in the three weeks including the 2009 Christmas Chart.

Von Hell plays the leading role in Cornelis, a 2010 Swedish film about singer-songwriter Cornelis Vreeswijk.

On June 6, 2011, von Hell released their first album I Declare: Treason with his new band Doctor Midnight and The Mercy Cult.

At the end of 2011, he served as a judge in the Norwegian TV series “Idol”. His biography was released in Norway in October 2012 and was written by the writer and poet Hawadrem, where he talked publicly about his life so far.

On August 31, 2018, von Hell released the first single “Bum to Bum” from his upcoming solo album “Egomania”. The album was released globally on November 2 through Sony Music/Century Media.

He created this album with the help of guitarist and band member Eric Bachman (also known as Cat Casino). Von Hell was asked in an interview in 2018 why he decided to come back and make a personal record. He said: “The timing is just right. I have completed my life with other “angels” and I feel it’s time to go back and do what I always should. What to do-rock and roll. Then shake your ass.”

On January 25, 2019, the song “Fake It” was selected for the 2019 Melodi Grand Prix, representing Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest held in Israel.
