The Whorehouse Massacre are a special force from Canada delving into suffocating, dense and frankly downright menacing doom/sludge metal. These guys are not here to enthrall you by playing groovy stoner tunes, but stick to their stoic and frighteningly massive method of hazy, hypnotic and overdrive stomp. Leads are ensconced in the miasmic texture of this monolith-in-motion, little rays of hope that don't get too far. The Whorehouse Massacre are a reminder to all of the sheer power this style of music possesses - not everything needs to be fast and technical. This one gets the job done by just its dense stature. 'Altar of the Goat Skull/VI.' comprise two of the band's latest EPs rolled into one ceaseless album, released as a precursor to the full length album coming out next year on Transcending Obscurity Records.

Track Name: Indignation
Steel toe mother fucking your head into the curb
One more dead mother fucker thinning the human herd
Stomping out your life and dreams while you choke on your last screams
Choke on your last fucking screams
Your dead yellow broken teeth, face down in blood
Was the last thing you saw, body limp and spine broke
Running mouth no longer running
Track Name: Buried in Darkness
Treating people just like numbers
What do you have to say?
Climbing the ladder, throwing them under
Just to have your own way
Track Name: Altar of the Goat Skull
Blood drips from the athame
As your life drains away
The last words on your lips
You will never say
Your body twisted your life drains away
Bent backwards and broken
Your hopes and dreams flood out
Onto the stone I watch
The blood flow down and out
As you drown
On your final day
I took your life away
Track Name: The Black Coast
Oh I sailed on the sea
Until night turned to day
And the pain went away
Oh I built an ark
And sailed away
Until I was far enough away
That when I woke up
Night turned to day
And I
That I had
Just found my way
Far enough Away
To start a new day
And change my ways
Live a different way
Now I
Sail the seas
The Sea
Of Suicide
Track Name: Big Mouth
You're a goof with a big mouth
Small minds breed small ideas
Track Name: Bowels of Hell
Talk your shit
Save your face
Just another example
Of living human waste
Trying so hard to
Win the human rat race
Bowels of hell
Drag me down
Track Name: End of Mankind
Lies and rules will fall from the blood red sky
The human kind is done the final footsteps from our final demise
Looking back in history's books at the end of time
Living in existence is every human's crime
Earth's crust cracked at dawn, sea and sky turn red
Stars fall from the sky, asteroids fall from orbit
Earth smashed to dust
Track Name: Sassy Pants (Sloth cover)
Fuck off is what you told me to do
But I bet you never thought I'd be fucking off on you
You told me to fuck off
So that's what I'm doing
You're dead and I got your trendy blue jeans down, down around your ankles
Fuck off is what you told me to do
So that's what I'm doing
Now your dead body is catching a load, I'm cracking it's teeth
Track Name: The Temples of Perdition
Deep in the temple Gehenna
Moloch awaits to eat your unholy soul
Brought before the dark throne
Your flesh and soul is ripped from your bones
Scratch and scream in disbelief

Deep in the temple perdition
Liars await to sell your broken soul
Bought and sold by demons
Feeding their evil ways
Eating holes through your soul
Track Name: Sob Story
Suicide sob story cause you got it so hard
Spilling your guts, fishing for pity
Shooting your mouth off, loving every second
Verbally jerking off to your own voice
Telling people what they want to hear
Worrying about others is your only fear
Suicide sob story cause you got it so hard
Spilling your guts, fishing for pity
Underneath it all, you're too queer
To man up, and face your own fear
I hate you, pull the hammer back and let go
