War From A Harlots Mouth

Math Metal - Germany

War From A Harlots Mouth Band

With their fourth full-length “Voyeur”, WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH continue on their outrageous course charted on previous albums by pushing even further into the musical unknown. The Germans ride a maelstrom of sound fusing shattered pieces and fractions of Extreme Metal, Sludge, Core, 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. The result has been termed Math Core or Tech Metal, but these simplifying terms fail to convey the full picture. WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH were founded in Berlin late 2005 by Simon, Paul and vocalist Steffen, who soon completed their line-up with Daniel and Filip in order to perform live. Since then WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH have played over 400 shows including prestigious festivals such as With Full Force. Shortly after the release of their first album “Transmetropolitan” (2007), Steffen was replaced by former THE OCEAN frontman Nico. Their outstanding debut gained much critical acclaim, which was topped by each following release “In Shoals” (2009) and “MMX” (2010). With their exceptional musicianship the Germans were not just convincing the critics but also able to create a huge fan-base. Now “Voyeur” shows WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH at their most mature so far and adding new dimension with the aid of classical strings played by composer John Strieder and a guest appearance from Arkadi Zaslawski (DIORAMIC). Let all conventions be broken!
