Genre: Brutal Death Metal
Album Year: 2013
Location: Tel-Aviv, Israel
The first two thoughts I had when I saw the name “Whorecore” were, 1) Great fucking band name, and 2) Is this a new strip-club friendly genre of metal? That would be badass. Well I doubt they’d allow that type of brutally crusty grind-death metal in strip clubs, but regardless Whorecore is an absolutely perfect dose of a metric ton of bricks to the face.
Hailing from Tel-Aviv Israel (fun fact, Tel-Aviv means “the city that never stops” and it just so happens that these guys don’t stop either!), Whorecore is a six-piece outfit made up of relentless death metal riffs, dual vocalists, low bass and excellent drums.
Their latest release, “Headless” packs punch after colon-clinching punch of brutal death metal. Tracks like “Schweinehund” and “Thy Kingdom Come” are just slam-down brutally heavy tracks that feature everything that’s great about the death metal genre. “Born Headless” kicks off like Cannibal Corpse’s “Time to Kill is Now,” but quickly transitions into Whorecore’s own brand of curb-stomping brutality.
“Headless” is a long trek through some of the best modern death metal that’s out there today. The biggest travesty about this band is that they don’t even have 5,000 likes on Facebook, which needs to change ASAP. I’d knock over children to get tickets to see these guys live if they ever make their way to the States. If you’re a fan of death metal, this album is an absolute must for you.
For fans of: Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Dying Fetus, pretty much all grind or death metal.
