This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.
|In late 2006, Roy (Guitar/vocals), Olle (Drums) and Kellie (Guitar) created Funeral Whore with the intention to make death metal, the traditional way. Old school death metal, the way it supposed to be. Funeral Whore at that time, was in search for a bass player. After a short time, Olle left the band, and concentrated himself on his other successful street punk band, Discharger.
Roy and Kellie moved on together and found a new drummer in early 2007. Shortly afterwards, Tim (Bass) joined the band and the formation was complete. But sadly, the drummer, Jonathan was unable to rehearsal constantly. This meant, a very slow progress in writing songs. In mid 2009, after recording the first demo, Jonathan was replaced by Sven.
The first 3 gigs were played with this 2nd drummer but not with the satisfying result. The band recorded a mini CD entitled "Morbid Intension" which was self released in October 2009. But Sven also proved to be incapable in providing the real old school death metal sound. The search for a real old school death metal drummer continued and Sven was replaced by Dennys.
This 3rd drummer would again, also be a disappointment and after one show, held in Amsterdam in May 2010 it was the end of the line for Dennys. Funeral Whore found itself back without a drummer but nevertheless recorded a 3 track promo called "For all Eternity" self released in the summer of 2010.
Olle had played in Discharger for nearly 8 years but had never strong connections with the punk scene and preferred death metal for all that time. In the summer of 2010, Olle left Discharger and in a few weeks he re-joined Funeral Whore, founding himself in the exact band he wanted to be. The improvement of the band throughout the years stunned Olle and with his return, the band made a rapid progress. Several, very successful gigs were played and new songs arrived of the play-list, more aggressive and old school than ever before. In December 2012 Olle left the band, retired himself from active duty in bands but is replaced by the young and fanatic Nick, proving himself in no-time a great and professional drummer. With this small but important line up change, Funeral Whore is once again, back in action.
A first official tape release was made in October 2010 by Godeater Records (Germany). This tape called "Dead upon the Cross" contained the mini CD and promo as well 2 live songs. It was supposed to be a farewell to the old days compilation since Olle's return at Funeral Whore.
In the beginning of 2011 Funeral Whore signed a contract for 2 full length albums with Chaos Records (Mexico).
In August 2011 the band recorded their first full length album.
