Revelation Unorthodox

Rated 3/5 (60%) (1 Vote)

Few bands can pull off the mixing of two or more music genres, but this one here does quite a decent job. Devils Whorehouse is a band more often compared to The Misfits and Danzig than to "pure" metal bands. This band features a couple of members of Marduk and their presence is audible. Even though this is very punk-based, one can still hear a bit of a Marduk sound hidden in there - well, it is more a matter of the musicians' playing style than anything Marduk-ish, but you get the idea. :) There's the rather simplistic approach of punk mixed in with some more complex metal-based ideas, with clean but raucous vocals that are also more rooted in punk - very 70-ish at times, seasoned with a bit of Glen Danzig emulation here and there. There's 13 songs in about 32 minutes of time, so there's no lengthies in there - all quick and straightforward material, pretty much mid to fast paced and in your face, as can be expected from a band with such influences. Note that "Deathwish" is a Christian Death cover.

I've seen this album/band categorised as everything from pink to death rock to metal. Truth is, there's a bit of each of them in here, although I think the end result tends more toward a raw simple metal than toward the other two genres. Nothing too exciting, but very enjoyable nonetheless.
