Deathwish to release Harm Wülf (Blacklisted) debut

Deathwish Inc. has announced plans to release the debut album from Harm Wülf, the solo vehicle for Blacklisted frontman George Hirsch. Here's the official pitch from Deathwish:
Harm Wülf is the bedroom musical entity of G. Hirsch, known for his moving lyrical and vocal contributions in Philadelphia's Blacklisted. Harm Wülf's debut album is a collection of songs which touch upon the dark and rustic themes of solitude and aging disappointment. Inspired by a wide range of artists: from the tranquil resonance of Low, rhythmic acoustic strumming of Strength Through Joy and the ascending power of Angels Of Light, to the insular, grotesque Americana of Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O'connor. Most times sparse and austere, others apocalyptically orchestrated, Harm Wülf has the sound of something long since missing.
In case you didn't read that, here's a summary: this is NOT hardcore music. Have a listen: A release date has yet to be scheduled, but you can catch Harm Wülf live at the following shows: 5/26 Philadelphia, PA @ Gunnars Run 6/7 Berkley, CA @ Gilman St. 6/8 Los Angeles, CA @ The Echo 6/9 Santa Ana, CA @ Unit B

not even the umlaut can make this cool. this dude sounds like he's 3-4 days away from suicide. if someone goes to any of these shows, buy him a beer or a roufokalati, thinking of taking a shower with the toaster oven.

Holy rat shit, another talentless Hardcore "artist" who thinks within him he's got a profound song to sing. He don't. Now if you'll excuse me, I must clean up my vomit.

anonymous 5/22/2013 10:13:16 AM

SuckMeBeautiful 5/22/2013 10:23:21 AM

Has he been hanging out with Dirty Beaches?

anonymous 5/22/2013 12:03:03 PM

apparently, none of you bastufft dwelling fcktards know what "pretentious" actually means.

sounds like it was recorded in the alley behind the Arby's down the street from where I work. a lot of charles manson looking weridos back there always strung out and strumming on something. really though, it's not completely terrible (aside from the vocals). it's just that this would surely go unnoticed if not for the connection to blacklisted.

Oh sweet, another DW release that only exists due to nepotism. This is the reason why people have become apathetic to new music, chances are it will be some regurgitated version of something we heard ten years ago and yes, it sucked back then.

anonymous 5/22/2013 1:16:01 PM

Harm's Way is pissed

pretentious[ pri-ten-shuhs ] adjective 1. characterized by assumption of dignity or importance, especially when exaggerated or undeserved: a pretentious, self-important waiter. 2. making an exaggerated outward show; ostentatious. 3. full of pretense or pretension Yeah, that's exactly what this is, and what I meant. fcktard.

unvisitedgrave 5/22/2013 1:43:59 PM

Sounds like a 5th rate Death in June. Woah.

anonymous 5/22/2013 7:38:57 PM

lol, this fcking sucks. DW is going to lose tons of money on this.

anonymous 5/23/2013 5:26:04 AM

God this fcking sucks. Why does he think he's so creative? He's so bad at this shit.

anonymous 5/23/2013 8:32:09 AM

Horrible name. And his band name is terrible too. - HeartThrob Rob.

anonymous 5/23/2013 10:31:19 AM

A dude making music is pretentious? Maybe you should continue your downward spiral into life and perhaps speeding up the process for all of us by drinking a gallon of bleach.

anonymous 5/23/2013 11:27:18 AM

Anything can be pretentious, dumbfck. Especially a solo project from a hardcore bands lead singer, because inevitably they will name drop a bunch of goofy shit as influence, with keywords such as "rustic" and "Americana". We know you're trying to prove to everyone you're not some dude in a stupid hxc band anymore, but don't try to wow us with all the cool shit you found out about last week. That's where pretense comes in.

anonymous 5/23/2013 6:35:48 PM

he should get a better home recording unit, cuz the one hes using now sounds really awesome in a terrible way, but it seems thats what hes going for.

kevin_sorbo 5/24/2013 5:19:38 AM

blacklisted is cool, but this is a piece of liquid shit.

anonymous 5/24/2013 11:14:55 PM

no but really, this is fcking awful

anonymous 5/26/2013 2:34:05 PM

For some reason this song made me think of Coverge's Ten Cents which isn't really good.
