this record has been very formative for me, I was well aware of similar mathcore bands but these guys had something special in their writing.
Favorite track: Riding Dead Horses is a Fucking Curse.
After taking the underground by storm with their debut EP in 2006, 'Transmetropolitan' gave War From a Harlots Mouth world wide recognition once it hit the scene in September 2007.
WFAHM went from a side project to a heavily touring band within just a couple of months and soon spread their chaotic mix of Mathcore, Grindcore and Hardcore across the globe.
'Transmetropolitan' combined influences such as The Red Chord, Between the Buried and Me as well as Cephalic Carnage and energized them with a no bullshit Berlin Hardcore attitude. In combination with the band's excessive live shows, the album gained an undeniable cult following.
This reissue features a remaster by guitarist Simon (Sludge Studios), which - rather than being louder than the original - offers a more dynamic range and much clearer, more aggressive edge.
Long story short: 'Transmetropolitan' sounds better than ever!

FUCK. A tad aggressive, no? I can’t play this stuff in front of my dog because I don’t want him to panic.
Absolutely brilliant, pulverizing album you’ve made here.
Reminds me of when I went camping and my mom threw a flash bang grenade and some high-power firecrackers into my tent while I was playing my Gameboy. Changed the whole vibe forever.
How am I supposed to sleep now? Bill H
