Bio: "This trio of tantric troubadours will completely lobotomize you" - The Dalai Lama. What do you get when you mix jungle/ drum n' bass with the guitar stylings of John Mclaughlin, (The Awesome Fusion Guitar player, not the other one that sucks...) the intensity of Pantera, the form of Zappa and the creativity of Mozart? The answer is obviously Whoarfrost. This group began while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2006. They have been conquering the wasteland one butterfly at a time ever since. "This is some heavy shit" - Chong from Cheech and Chong. "These guys will honestly blow your fucking minds." - God.
I remember being at one of their bombastic performances in Boston circa 2006-2007. Rocking in a packed hot and sweaty basement, Whoarfrost had several old tvs behind them displaying various kinds of hardcore porn. The audience's faces melted to the pure mercury infused samurai sword slicing of Jon Lipscomb's guitar. The heart pounding energy of the drums and the bass created lush spheres of prog-metal-rock-funk that brought apocalyptic doom to the soul. In other words, it was one of the dopest crunkfests I have ever personally attended. Their music is gargantuan especially when you take into account that there are only three members. After living in Amherst for a couple years the group has relocated to Baltimore, MD where they continue to slay maggot infested demons on sound wave battlefields with their amorphous orgy of devastation. Their new album is soon to be released in Feb. 2011 so get with the program and buy it now even though you can't yet! Smell the Devil's Breath!!
