War From A Harlots Mouth
Released: 2007, Lifeforce Records
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall
This five piece band comes from Berlin Germany and the members formed the band with the purpose of melting together different music genres like grindcore, hardcore and mathcore with jazz. Yes, it sounds weird but that’s how it was. The band put up a few songs on their myspace page and got immediate respond from people all over the world. That ended up in a split disc together with Molotov Solution and also with gigs all over Europe.
It’s really hard to put a name on what the band are playing and to make it easy for me I say they play some really technical mix of hardcore and grindcore influenced by jazz. The jazz parts may sound strange but it’s actually quite nice to get a break from the very intense brutal music here and there. My main concern with the disc and the band is the lead singer who mostly screams out his lyrics. The rest of the band does a good job of throwing out extremely heavy and fast riffs and solid bass tunes.
TRANSMETROPOLITAN clocks in on 40 minutes and contains 11 songs. The pace is fast and the material feels really even and fun. The jazz parts really give the music another and a little deeper dimension. The strange mix of music styles doesn’t bother me at all when it’s executed well like it is now. This is an interesting album but it takes a while to get into the music. Once you’ve done that I’m sure you are gonna have many fun hours of listening in front of you.
