Whores – Ruiner EP
Let's get this out of the way: Whores' debut release is completely blunt and confrontational. The sleazy bassline which dominates first track Daddy's Money mirrors the demented guitar work at play in the opener to The Jesus Lizard's highly influential Goat in more ways than one, and the Atlanta, Georgia trio's overall sound is injected with a filthy shot of sludge.
The result sounds like Harvey Milk (whose member Kyle Spence produces here) having their way with Helmet – not a pretty sight, but it's impossible to look away when the band jam this hard. There's not much creative variety in these tracks, but the EP works best when thought of as a single twenty minute slab of pure, unfiltered rage.
