FUNERAL WHORE “STEP INTO DAMNATION”. 2012 CHAOS RECORDS.

By: Mike Abominator

I go back with this band. I found them during the myspace explosion. This is when the metal heads took over for a while and chased away the teenage girls and the old perverts looking to hook up with them. YES, ALL THE BACK THEN! hahahaha. OK only 3 years ago, but ever since that first 2009 demo, I knew this band was going to be putting out some morbid and crushing old school death metal for a long time. There was a self financed EP “Morbid Intensions”, and the 2 more demos, “…for all Eternity” and “Dead Upon the Cross”. There was also the awesome “2 Morbid Ways to Die” split 7 inch with Profanal (which I will review shortly.) Now comes the full length. If you like Grave, Asphyx, old Unleashed, Massacre and old Death, you will like Funeral Whore. The first demo classic “Obedience” gets a re-do here. This has been one of my favorite Funeral Whore songs ever since I heard that demo. Other older demo songs like “Camp Blood” and album opener “Eternal Genocide” are also on here. The newer songs like the title track (one of my ultimate favorites) and the mid paced crunch of “El Salvador Death Squad” are just as great as the older songs. The sound and production is heavy as fuck, yet pretty clean as far as being able to hear everything. It has a live and “in your face” sound to it. But still dirty and smelly enough to make the olden death heads like me happy. The riffs buzz along, cutting through flesh like a chainsaw. The drums pound and prod along and rattle your bones like a huge thunderstorm. The songs are straightforward and simple. But the delivery is deadly. Funeral Whore only have a mission to CRUSH, KILL, DESTROY everything in site. They do just that with this mighty album “Step Into Damnation”! It is only halfway through the 2nd month of 2012, but this is my early candidate for album of the year so far! FUUUUCCCCCCCKKKKK it’s good!
