EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH, “SCOPOPHOBIA”
If “Scopophobia” is any indication, Voyeur — the follow-up to German tech-metallers War From A Harlots Mouth’s 2010 album MMX — will mark a huge leap forward for the band I once affectionately dubbed “The Wonton Soup of Tech-Deathcore“. The apostrophically-challenged German outfit has taken a step far outside the box on this new tune, dabbling in NeurIsis-y soundscapes, trafficking in unsettling, blast-fueled, Ulcerate-inspired death metal churns, and even climaxing with a soaring melody reminiscent of Textures in the song’s lone chorus. Compare the new song, which we’re premiering to the world for the first time via the striking lyric video below, to the comparatively straight-forward (but completely competent) tech-death on their prior album here.
Scopophobia, by the way, is an anxiety disorder characterized by a morbid fear of being seen or stared at by others.
