2006 reissue of the sophomore album by this Metal quartet fronted by Tairrie B. features three bonus tracks: 'Relapse', 'Last Rites' and 'Omnia Vinat Amore'. 1997?s second album by Tura Satana featured a searing cover of Nirvana?s ?Negative Creep?, a rare and brave cover of a Kurt Cobain anthem. It wasn?t out of place on an album every bit as fearless and dark as Nirvana?s back catalogue. Noise.

Brilliant and heavy

"I stole this cd from an ex-boyfriend, and I've been loving it ever since. The music is so heavy, but the tunes are great and the rhythms fantastic. It's real up-beat metal that is great to mosh to. Tarrie B is a brilliant vocalist, with her deep and beautiful voice, and her amazing screams, but her voice is very different to most females in metal bands at the moment. Her lyrics are very heart-felt, and appropriate for the music: self-depreciating, hating and angry. My favourite tracks are the chunky "Luna," the bouncy "Dry," the solid "Unclean," the angry "Flux" and the almost-beautiful "Omnia Vinat Amor." Buy this record and you will not be dissapointed. This album is a legend."

"I love Tairrie B. She's a great songwriter, and can scream and yell bloody murder like there's no tomorrow. I'm a fan of Kittie as well, but I think that every project Tairrie B has been and will be a part of is going to out do anything Kittie will come out with. The music is heavy, yet graceful. Relief Through Release is Tura Satana at their best. The lyrics are so that I can't even think of a word good enough to describe them! This CD will be sure to please if you're into heavy guitars with angry chick screams coming from a very beautiful and talented woman."

"What I really like about Tura Satana's "Relief Through Release" is that it appears to close the door of the past while opening the gates of Miss B.'s future; in a way, "Relief" is a creepy omen for My Ruin's "Speak and Destroy." Unlike 1996's "All is Not Well" (which was merely a slice of politcally-charged rap-metal), this second effort has lyrics incorporating iconographic images of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and the horned Devil. Combined with issues of love, sex and self-abuse, such powerful references were what Miss B. chose as a means of battling her own personal demons. Her angry performances are musical exorcisms that would continue on through My Ruin's "Speak and Destroy" and "Prayer Under Pressure." I also must add that she has improved vocally on here; she is much more expressive in her screams, growls, purrs and whispers; some songs signify her as a bruised victim, while in others she is the vamp, a temptress who drives men to their ruin. There are indeed some highlight tracks on this record: my favorites are "Venus Diablo," "Unclean," and "Flux." When I listen to the latter track, I picture in my head Miss B. trussed in a straitjacket, alone in her own padded room. In general, "Relief Through Release" is a decent CD to have in one's collection; it signify's Miss B.'s increasing use of spoken poetry as a legitimate art form."
