French duo Whourkr concocted a terrifying rapid-fire hybrid of grindcore and breakcore on the mini-album Naat (2007) and on Concrete (Crucial Blast, 2009). Unfortunately, 4247 Snare Drums (2012) was just noise for the sake of noise.

Igorrr (half of Whourkr, real name Gautier Serre) had already released the mini-album Poisson Soluble (2006), on which he had experimented unusual stylistic hybrids (Dixit Dominus). Igorrr spent the next ten years refining that idea. Moisissure (2008) was a whirlwind of musical styles, especially in Valse en Decomposition and Brutal Swing. Nostril (2010) was perhaps too messy and too clownish, but Hallelujah (2012) was the culmination of his hyper-fusion of breakcore, grindcore, classical music and Renaissance folk, with reinventions of melodies stolen from Beethoven (Tout Petit Moineau) and Chopin (Corpus Tristis). After a five-year hiatus, Savage Sinusoid (2017), a collection of shorter songs, offered a more conventional version of his madcap metal, nonetheless arranged with a merry-go-round of accordion, sax, piano, harpsichord and shouted by operatic vocals. Spirituality and Distortion (2020) was more focused and polished (Cheval) with more exotic elements (Camel Dancefloor).
