The Whorehouse Massacre are a band from Canada that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review their ep's "Altar Of the Goat Skull" and "VI" which will be released on February 20, 2015 as a full length album by Transcending Obscurity International Distribution.
A very dark and heavy doom metal sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls a few seconds later and the music also brings in few pitched screams at times and after awhile dark and melodic guitar leads are added some parts of the songs and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A few of the tracks are instrumental while the song s with vocals bring in an early 90's doom/death metal feeling at times and as the album progresses the band brings in a few tracks that are very long and epic in length and at times the guitar riffing also adds in a small amount of dark sounding melodies and all of the songs stick to a very slow, heavy and dark musical direction.
The Whorehouse Massacre plays a musical style that takes the early 90's doom/death metal sound and mixes it with sludge to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics focus more on a dark subject matter.
In my opinion The Whorehouse Massacre are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Indignation" "Altar Of The Goat Skull" "Bowles Of hell" and "Sob Story". 8 out of 10.
