What an unbelievably cool thing to hear out of a favorite band since I was literally 14 years old. If the mix on Spineless is any indication for future reasons, my brain doesn’t stand a chance. Damn.
Compiled for a Wax Vessel vinyl pressing, this collection of b-sides, pre-productions, demos, live recordings and entirely unreleased tracks features real deep cuts from every era of WFAHM.
'You May Not Be Through With the Past, But the Past is Through With You' is a collection ranging from the very first rehearsal room recording as a 3-piece in 2005, over live recordings from a 2008 US tour, all the way to 2012 pre-production demos for the final album 'Voyeur'.
Add in a couple of surprises even the band had forgotten all about over the years as well as a bonus track entirely exclusive to Bandcamp and you got yourself 55 minutes of WFAHM deep cuts you've never heard before!

Simon and Paul (ex-WFAHM) started Nightmarer in 2014 and took the most extreme elements of 'Voyeur' to an even darker, much more metallic level. Also check their new single 'Primordial Grit'! War From A Harlots Mouth

Absolutely mind-tickling stuff. Frontierer outdid themselves with this new LP. It's chaotic, dynamic, groovy, relentless, clever and the mix is god-tier. 100% recommend this one, make sure to listen with headphones! Lucas Prieske
