Whourkr - Concrete
"Concrete" aims at nothing less than committing aural assault. French duo Whourkr employ electronics and processed sounds for no other reason than to confront the listener with grinding, violent abrasive noise mixed with occasional, absurdly aggressive beats. This is for fans of those wondering why more fans of Suicide haven't formed bands given all the lethal equipment now available.
Contributing to your sweaty, frantic victimization are such tracks are "Mindgerb," "Santo," "Fatrubber" and Cera Pollutea," just two of the fourteen on this harrowing wind-tunnel of a sophomore disc.
Whourkr is relentless and confrontational, and in the extremity of the music here, an underlying glee at all the damage being done. "Concrete is a slab of hate and adrenalin, a raging mass of mashed-up sludge, metal, crust and field recordings from eternal punishment. You can dance to it at your firing squad. This is not for everyone, because it does not compromise. There is no breathing room, the dense but spastic assault forcing the listener to hold on or run away. There is no in between.
