Shaving the Werewolf to release "God Whisperer"

Shaving the Werewolf have played disagreeable music for disagreeable people since they were founded in 2010. Birthed from power violence, noise rock and mathcore, they have chopped up their parents and put them back together into an uncanny chimera which would make Dr. Frankenstein green with envy.

Known for live shows as intense and horrid as their music which have left audiences both gagged and worried. Described as a car crash unfolding in slow motion or a person smashing their head into a brick wall for eternity, it is a sight which will leave your eyes sore and your ears in worse condition.

Having churned up moshpits at Høstsabbath, given metal extremists Rotten Sound and God Mother competition about being the most outrageous and mooning Swedish model Vendela Kirsebom, these rat fink hardcore pioneers will leave a mark on (if not scar) your psyche.

During their abysmal journey, Shaving the Werewolf have released several eps, singles and a full-length album. Last year the band released a split-tape with Bergen's hardcore antiheroes Utflod.

Next up is an EP as ugly and insisting as anything the band have done before. Named "God Whisperer", it's Inspired by the pathological know-it-all who poison the world with their selfish and militant ignorance.

Here the band explore deeper into the sprawling crevices of their established sound to bring you catchy hooks to snag your brain on and jagged edges to treat your mind with the same courtesy an angry box-cutter would, all bathed in corrosive dissonance.

Engineered, mixed and mastered by Jørgen Øiseth Berg and featuring the artwork of Martin Mentzoni, "God Whisperer" is set to be released on March 22nd.
