‘Gold.’, an awesome collection of grimy sludge-meets-metal-meets-post-hardcore tinged tirades, was rated 7/10 by Metal Hammer in their January 2017 issue by writer Joe Daly, who stated that “For their large label debut, Atlanta’s Whores. seek to build on the wanton brutality of EP’s 2011’s ‘Ruiner’ and 2013’s ‘Clean’ breaking free from the cluttered playing field of ear-bleeding noise extremists. ‘Clean’s scuzzy riffage and a bowel-shaking low end drew comparisons to Melvins while still inviting punks and stoners on board. ‘Gold.’ Takes their sound much further, with sharp, purposeful structures, and a tightly harnessed aggression playing out in piledriving tempos and riffs, as heard in chest-pounding belters like ‘Of Course You Do’ and ‘I see You Also Wearing A Black Shirt’. Such titles underscore Whores.’ zero-fucks irreverence, calling to mind the misanthropic playfulness of Pissed Jeans. The band stay largely within their lines on their debut, and the tighter focus, ambitious songwriting and speaker-blowing production cast ‘Gold.’ As a ferocious and exhilarating intro to the big leagues.”
Since their inception in 2010, Christian Lembach (vocals/guitars), Donnie Adkinson (drums) and Casey Maxwell (bass), have established Whores. as one of heavy music’s most distinctive acts, thanks to their crushing live shows and no-holds-barred punk rock attitude. Whores. have toured throughout the U.S. with acts such as Red Fang, Torche, Big Business, Melvins, Mudhoney, Retox, Deafheaven, Iron Reagan, Metallica, Slayer, Kylesa, Black Tusk, Royal Thunder, Floor, Lamb of God, Tombs, The Sword, Baroness, Dillinger Escape Plan, Chelsea Wolf, Youth Code, Cult of Luna and many more.
