War From A Harlots Mouth: Vertigo – new video & Voyeur – full album stream




“Eeriness, darkness, coldness, despair, and riffs, this is how I would describe WAR FROM HARLOTS MOUTH's new record, ‘Voyeur’, in one sentence to anyone who asked,” [offered Chuck Haller, Sputnik Music – read the rest of his review here]
“With their fourth full-length ‘Voyeur’, WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH continue on their outrageous course charted on their previous three albums by riding a maelstrom of sound fusing metalcore, mathcore, death metal, jazz and other elements into new shapes with ultimate complex drumming, grinding and booming bass lines as well as intricately shredding guitars and hoarse vociferation. For their unique style WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH have won the praise of critics as well as the die-hard support of fans,” [added the label. Season Of Mist]
Hence you can’t go wrong by visiting BandCamp here (also available below) where ‘Voyeur’ is being streamed in full. The album was released in October/November 2012 by Season Of Mist Records. ‘Voyeur’ awaits you here (Season Of Mist e-shop), where you’ll be able to choose your preferable format:


Formed in 2005 in Berlin, Germany, AllMusic's elder Eduardo Rivadavia tells us WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH play a violent blend of math metal, grindcore, and assorted unrelated genres - and they strongly disagree:
“We don’t claim to be a band that’s true to any kind of genre. So don’t tell us we are not whatevercore or blablametal, 'cos you are right: we are not.”
Happily leaving the genre business behind us, it appears WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH started their recording career with a cassette and a split EP (with MOLOTOV SOLUTION) they released in 2006. With German label Lifeforce Records watching their backs, guitarists Daniel Globentrachten and Steve Jones, bassist Filip Heisenberg, drummer Paule Seidel and vocalist Steffan Gewohnt recorded their debut studio album ‘Transmetropolitan’. Released in 2007, it was described as “unpredictable and all over the map as their choices for song titles” by Greg Prato, AllMusic (more here).Subsequent tours eventually claimed vocalist Gewohnt who was replaced with Nico Webers, before WFAHM put forth their next assault, 2009's ‘In Shoals’:
Every member of the band demonstrates total command of his instrument, including vocalist Nico, who switches back and forth between a guttural roar and a bloody-throated screech seemingly without blinking. The group has all the discipline of grindcore and death metal, but leaps into space when the mood strikes them,” [is what Phill Freeman, AllMusic heard – more here]
In 2010 came the band's third offering ‘MMX’, featuring guitarist Simon Hawemann. Phill Freeman described the album as “complex and unique” (more here):
“WFAHM have moved from the arty grindcore to a more metalcore/deathcore sound, with some detuned MESHUGGAH-style riffs thrown in, while retaining the occasional interjections of raw dissonance and, even more jarringly, gentle jazz chords and brushed drums that make this German band's music unique:”


WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH features: Nico Webers – vocals, Simon Hawemann – guitar, Daniel Oberländer – guitar, Filip Hantusch – bass and Paul Seidel – drums
