FUNERAL WHORE (Netherlands) Review

Funeral Whore Step into damnation heavy metal

FUNERAL WHORE “Step into Damnation”

Chaos Records

I know the label manager has a good eye for remarkable death metal bands and this time he may made a hit. FUNERAL WHORE comes from Netherlands and has a total powerful sound as if you were in the final days of the earth. Low, I mean VERY low guitar tunes converging riffs from damned tombs. Man, you’ll shit in your pants when the CD is played. Raw, obscene and old school death metal in the vein of putrid acts like ENTOMBED, GRAVE or early ASPHYX. The influence is hit directly to the bone in tracks like “El Salvador Death Squad”  for example (interesting title, referring to these savage assassins very active toward 80’s in El Salvador)  or “Buried in hell” an extremely bang for UNLEASHED lovers.
Well, I remember from 90’ Dutch underground a band called ACROSTICHON (which old material deserves to be re issued btw), and they had a female vocal. Good to know again a cool band from there making great noise and my hat off for that. In deed I don’t fucking care if Kelly, one of FUNERAL WHORE’s guitar players is a girl. She knows how to drive the guitar pick and she is VERY good. The point is that underground metal musicians should manage to create more and noticeable music no matter if they are male or female. Who said extreme metal can only be played by men? There you have Jo Bench, Yvonne Wilczynska, Elizabeth Schall, Roxana Espinoza, Corinne Van Den Brand, Greek ladies from ASTARTE, etc, just to name a few fantastic women with years into true extreme metal. If you have a problem with that you should not be reading this review. – Victor Varas
