I believe that there is no need to say that the first thing that impressed me on this band was its more than stupid name! WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH is definitely not the name I would choose for my band! So, the stupid name, the incredibly funny track titles and the band's photo (classic Bad haircuts syndrome) were the things that made me worried about what I was going to listen to! Thank God that these guys are not as shitty as they seem they are!

I remember I first heard about this band in 2005, when they were formed. A friend of mine mentioned them to me just because of their funny name. Since then, the German weird metallers have only released a split CD with MOLOTOV SOLUTION in 2006 through Twelve Gauge Records. I haven't had the chance to check any of their previous works, but this album seems a really good sample to what they represent.

If your remember my review on SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY, you have to know that this is a slightly better version of that band. WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH is characterized by insane rhythms that sound like a Grindcore version of DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, sick and twisted vocals and some mid tempo moments that their Hardcore influences reach the surface of their compositions. I think that the best way to describe this band is that it is a great mixture of DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN with DYING FETUS. No shit! These guys can reach both the Mathcore (pfff, what a word) and the Grindcore audiences with ease! I really feel like I have to apologize to this band for what I have said for them without having listened to their music.

Even though my first impression was that it would be a Ferret style band, WFAHM kicked me right to my balls and proved that evolution is not just a matter of one crazy riff or a weird image. Evolution is a part of music that we can't deny. Only be careful, old school fans should better stay away from it for obvious reasons.
