Perhaps Australia’s best kept secret? Whoretopsy are an upcoming brutal death metal band covering many of the extreme underground genres from slam, to grindcore. ‘Isn’t She Lovely’ is an EP that unusually boasts more confidently than their previous debut record, ‘They Did Unspeakable Things’. This EP contains a brief intro before the four main tracks, which cater for your grotesque needs if like me, you have a love for putrid death metal with horrific content, which is especially located in the lyrics of these songs.
If you take the lyrics too seriously then this isn’t for you at all but have a bit of humour and you’ll get along fine. Highlights for me are the favourable ‘Seminal Torture’ – check the band’s official lyric video on this track for just some of the most hilariously written lyrics ever, yet at the same time brutal, punishing riffs and death metal structure.
Another shout out would be for the track ‘High School Sweetheart’ containing some purely brilliant slam riffs to bounce your head to, and again the lyrics are dead funny. I’m certain the next chapter of Whoretopsy’s work will continuously grow from their already thrilling adventure in brutal death metal, as for now ‘Isn’t She Lovely’ will remains as one of my favourite EPs released this year.
