HARLOTT
"ORIGIN"
PUNISHMENT 18 RECORDS

Thrash! Thrash! Thrash! Holy crap! HARLOTT are an amazing Thrash Metal band
hailing from Melbourne Australia. These guys have been shredding up the scene since
2006 and they play some killer old school Thrash Metal in the vein of the Bay Area
Thrash of the '80's. If you going to go back and play old school Thrash Metal then you
might as well go to where it was created.
HARLOTT play ultra fast, ultra tight and ultra
professional Thrash Metal properly. The fast paced aggressive grooved out Thrash sound
runs ramped through out their songs. These guys are truly what Thrash Metal is all about.
Even though they pull their influences from the Bay Area scene, I can hear some elements
of  East Coast Thrash in their sounds as well, especially the New York scene. The guitar
work definitely has that Bay Area sound and kept bringing to mind bands like
TESTAMENT, EXODUS, SLAYER, FORBIDDEN & early METALLICA. While I felt
the aggression and harder edged stuff like the drums had a more East Coast vibe in the likes
of
OVERKILL, ANTHRAX & NUCLEAR ASSAULT. The vocals are done in a mid
ranged fast paced gritty Thrash Metal style and reminded me of a cross between Booby
Blitz of
OVERKILL & Chuck Billy of TESTAMENT. PUNISHMENT 18 RECORDS
is one of my favorite underground labels that mostly deals with killer Thrash Metal bands
and they have found a gem in
HARLOTT. One of the best Thrash Metal bands I have
heard in the past ten years. These guys would have been mentioned with the above bands
as influencing the scene if they were around at the original peak of the Thrash Metal scene
in the '80's. One truly amazing and talented Thrash Metal band. Every Metal fan should
get this release and discover their own "ORIGIN". A must! 'Nuff Said!!!
