War From A Harlots Mouth accuse Attila of stealing song

Defunct German metalcore band War From A Harlots Mouth says that Attila "blatantly" ripped them off on a portion of Attila's newly released album, Chaos. The alleged theft involves the second half of a War From A Harlot's Mouth called song "If You Want To Blame Us..." and the opening portion of an Attila track titled "Obsession." Here's what WFAHM had to say:
"The undoubtedly most mentally challenged band on planet earth, Attila, blatantly ripped us off. Not that I'm surprised that these imbeciles can't write music of their own, but unfortunately for them, they picked one of our most widely known songs: 'If You Want to Blame Us...' Losers."
You can judge for yourself below. UPDATE: A member of Florida band Into The Moat kindly pointed out to us that their song "Empty Shell" might have been the inspiration for all of this (listen below).

Imagine a member leaving this band. "The former War From A Harlots Mouth singer is starting a new band called Peace To The Housewife's rear. As the new Peace To The Housewife's rear singer he plans to step out of the shadows of his former band, War From A Harlots Mouth."


anonymous 11/7/2016 1:56:18 PM

Into The Moat was so good. Miss them.

I legit can't tell the difference if they're completely the same or completely different because they're both retarded breakdowns


anonymous 11/7/2016 2:30:29 PM

I cant believe War From A Harlots Mouth ripped off Attila smh i guess not everyone can be an american metal legend

anonymous 11/7/2016 3:04:24 PM

Personally, me and my friends all gathered rtound, and we're completely split down the middle! I screamed 'stealuing' but some of them said they were genius. It was really big debate! We all hyad a few giggles and some fun, but i reckon it was stealing, and I scream it now!!! Thx for another really cool atricle, I went into meltdown.


anonymous 11/7/2016 3:04:55 PM

Chaos is gonna blow shit up and melt faces off just like someone mentioned earlier


anonymous 11/7/2016 3:07:14 PM

HEADLINE TRANSLATION: German band that moved less than 500 units, helps another band chart top 10..

Now everyone please go listen to into the moat before returning to your scheduled programming

^Lad, you're a little too invested in these people's lives; you sound like a stalker. Get a life of your own.


anonymous 11/7/2016 3:43:25 PM

anonymous 11/7/2016 4:21:18 PM

^You probably didn't mean to but you sound a bit creepy.


anonymous 11/7/2016 4:21:49 PM

Maroon 5 did it first


anonymous 11/7/2016 4:25:28 PM

simpsons did it


anonymous 11/7/2016 4:27:14 PM

Congrats you both had the same bad idea to write a breakdown based off of a machine gun. At least Attila isn't ripping off their short ideas anymore, oh wait.


anonymous 11/7/2016 5:32:31 PM

Your dad's boyfriend (his dad) rips off your dads shorts and makes him go off like a machine gun in him, congrats


anonymous 11/7/2016 5:43:50 PM

Hey Guys Bill from Dr. Acula, I just want to say that my sagea Fronz would never steal a br00tal riff like that. He's not BOUT DAT LIFE!! Thanks guy


anonymous 11/7/2016 5:50:08 PM

This is dumb. Yeah it could be a coincidence but who cares? I have had an idea of a breakdown like this before. I never recorded it but they are completely different songs. Rip off? No. Inspiration maybe. Accidental probably.


anonymous 11/7/2016 6:02:57 PM

this based warrior just got banned for posting "gay ALERT gay ALERT gay ALERT gay ALERT, WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS, YOU DONT EVEN USE FRETS FOR fckS SAKE" on their FB wall. I suggest everyone does the same.


anonymous 11/7/2016 7:04:06 PM

still not as bad as when Caliban's "No More 2nd Chances" ripped the FCK off of Arch Enemy's "Enter the Machine" good god you couldnt get any more blatant rip off than that. embarrassing.

I mean while we are at it minus the "machine gun" this song is the same concept . Sounds the same. This is what I heard in my head upon first time hearing obsession https://youtu.be/LAkWAs0bO Qw

anonymous 11/8/2016 6:49:24 AM

This reminds me of when Black Moon released the track Stay Real and then Jay Z used the exact same beat on The Black Album.


anonymous 11/8/2016 6:50:24 AM

Oh and the red death were great, super solid dudes.


anonymous 11/8/2016 7:02:40 AM

Jerkin off with egg yolk right now. Thought I'd share.


anonymous 11/8/2016 7:28:46 AM

Led Zeppelin actually used this sample on "No Quarter" which they stole from Blind Willie McTell who stole it from the great classical composer Chopin who lifted inspiration heavily from local bards who's primary point of influence were the sounds of territorial crows. The crows are definitely owed some money for this.


anonymous 11/8/2016 7:40:18 AM

All three rip off the Vietnam War


anonymous 11/8/2016 7:52:31 AM

Ask Fronz where he got that scar above his eye! #murdertown


anonymous 11/8/2016 9:05:03 AM

Okay but even Before Their Eyes had a fcking breakdown like this so no one is original https://youtu.be/Pv1UIFZ0V -4?t=2m47s


anonymous 11/8/2016 9:17:30 AM

I like the part where Attila was 110% better than the cry baby band. do they really think they're the first people to think of dope ass machine gun sounds over sick riffs? Get real. And start paying for better recordings ????


anonymous 11/8/2016 9:19:25 AM

Dimebag is rolling [ afattie ] in his grave. Have you no musical intelligence lg? PSYCHO HOLIDAY inspired all these weak cliche' riffs. CASE CLOSED. RIPdimebag and fock you phillip. Tired of these lame headlines? True metal news site in the works, these chain sites just recycle the same shitty diapers as tmz. Eat a cl*t

I miss INTO THE MOAT, that was a real band


anonymous 11/8/2016 10:35:08 AM

Frankie did it first. Times and dates mean nothing and can be fabricated to fit anyone's agenda. Check it out at 0:46 if you need to hear the evidence. https://youtu.be/nuE0MbqZT K4

The "Mallrats" reference previously posted above should be nominated for the lambgoat comments hall of fame.

How many more bands had this same awful idea? Please continue this list...

All three bands ripped off Fear Factory.


anonymous 11/8/2016 3:16:09 PM

I remember listening to WFAHM and hearing that and saying, "wow they totally ripped off of Into The Moat." I guess it finally caught up to them.


anonymous 11/8/2016 4:18:34 PM

Oh look at the cool guy! 7 years ahead of the curve cool gay


anonymous 11/8/2016 4:38:26 PM

Didn't say I was ahead of the curve I just notice the nuances of music since I was quite young so calm down pube eater.


anonymous 11/8/2016 4:42:18 PM

Anyone wanting Gunn to comment? TOO BAD. Gunn will no longer responding here as I lodged numerous complaints against that wiger... to the MODS... him and and a few other of yous now have there IP's band.

I miss Into The Moat. Make another record already.


anonymous 11/9/2016 9:44:33 AM

If I'm remembering correctly, WFAHM's breakup statement was some really autistic rant that amounted to "we're bitter that Asking Alexandria is more popular than us". So I have no reason to take them seriously, even though I actually can't stand Asking Alexandria. It's just the fact that WFAHM acted like immature children then and they're still acting like it now.
