You’d Have to be “Mental” Not to Listen to the New Whores Song

  • Axl Rosenberg

Whores’ new single, “Mental Illness as Mating Ritual,” is probably my favorite song by the band to date. And not because of the super-romantic title (well… not just because of the super-romantic title). This. Shit. Is. Fucking. FILTHY. Like, if cockroaches and rats could start a metal band, they’d probably sound like Whores. In fact, I think Christian Lembach may be screaming “JUST LIKE A RAT!” throughout the song (he may be screaming “JUST LIKE A WRECK!” or something else — I can’t quite tell). Regardless, the band’s album art is a goddamn garbage can, so they’re clearly aware that they make gutter music for shit people. And us shit people are extremely grateful that they do it so well.



Check out “Mental Illness as a Mating Ritual” below. Then go shower, you slimy shit person.

Gold comes out October 28th via eOne; pre-order here. Whores will be on tour with Red Fang and Torche in November and December; dates here.
