"We Are Harlot" (Roadrunner Records; 2015)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

We Are Harlot (or just Harlot for short) are a super group. It was organized by singer Danny Worsnop formerly of Asking Alexandria and guitar player Jeff George who slung his axe for Sebastian Bach (and you can hear some excellent chops via the guitar, it's one of the highlights of Harlot). This group also has Brian Weaver from Silvertide on bass and drummer Bruno Agra of Revolution Renaissance. The first two bands I've heard and heard of but the last two I must have missed. This is their first disc and who knows if more will be coming from the camp but it would be good to hear a couple of offerings from these rockers.

Harlot are hard rock. The vocals are clean and straight forward. They've also got a blues sound on a few tracks. I think they would be great live because the songs seem to have that fire that would be great to witness first hand. There are eleven tracks on "We Are Harlot" and each one has power enough to kick your speakers into overdrive. The guitar really carries the songs along and the vocals are a great combination. The bass and drums are tight and you get some interesting instruments emerging after a few listens through. I recommend grabbing this disc and juicing up your music library.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
