Devil’s Whorehouse - The Howling

Posted on Thursday, October 28, 2010

When you read the sticker on the front (“Contains Members of Marduk”), you would expect this to be a real sick-ass raging Black Fucking Metal band. This is definitely not a Black Metal band. In fact, I’d have a tough time rating this as even a full-length album. Devil’s Whorehouse is a Misfits tribute band and this CD is essentially half Misfits worship and the other half Misfits cover tunes. You get 8 songs, 4 of which are covers and a total length of about 17 minutes for all of them. Shit, I think My Dying Bride did a song that was longer than that. And if you find this at a record store, they’re gonna charge your ass full album price for what is essentially an EP. The songs themselves are very true to the Misfits style of “Horror House” Punk and when you compare the original tracks to the covers, you really can’t tell that they were written by two different bands at all. If you love the Misfits and absolutely must own everything that Morgan Hakensson ever appeared on, this might be a worthwhile purchase. If not, think twice before pulling out your wallet on this one.
