about

The debut EP by heavy metal act, The Offering. The record features a tasteful amalgam of several hard rock and metal genres put together seamlessly into a unique, modern-classic aggressive sound, filled with top notch, deep musical compositions, and extreme, adept vocal performances, all put together into powerful song arrangements.

The Offering's debut EP has gained the endorsement of many veterans in the genre, including metal legends Kelly Schaefer of Atheist and Gen Vincent of Genitorturers. The former has lauded the band countless times as the new face of heavy metal, while the latter staked her faith in the band's capabilities by placing them on a Fall Halloween US tour with Genitorturers, where the band partnered with videographer Sam Harchik to shoot their music video for the single, "The Well." (See Below)

The EP was written in Waterville, New Hampshire, and recorded in Greenwich, New York at the Grammy award winning Edie Road Recording Studios with the assistance of award winning engineer Marc Fuller, produced by guitarist Nishad George. The album's post production was handled in Orebro, Sweden by the world renowned Fascination Street Studios, a studio that has worked with metal legends such as Arch Enemy, Opeth, Dragonforce, Moonspell, and At The Gates. The album was mixed by engineer Andre Alvinzi and mastered by the well reputable metal veteran Jens Bogren.

Track Name: Rat King
Mindless swarms are wrapped at three
are hoarded and force fed a home
Right now there’s a vermin
gnawing on your mind
building the solace of old
the solace of home

Rows
Packed in a line
Rows on rows
Packed in a line,
and stripped of their hide

You are machine
execute
you lab rat
sucker
Obey

Right now there’s a vermin
( There’s a vermin)
gnawing on your mind
building the solace of old
The solace of home

Lost in the grey
where you’re forced to obey
Rat King damnation
Tangled in tales of our...

Lost in the grey
where you’re forced to obey
Rat King damnation
Tangled in tales of our debts

Safe
inside the hive
sold there to die
Worked for the price
of your death and your grave

Let the vermin crawl
Masses migrate to his feet
Rat King with his tail of gold
will sell your flesh and all your meat

Rat King
Flesh King
Rat King
Flesh
Rat King with his tail of gold
will sell your flesh and all your meat

Row
Rows on rows
of mindless heathens
are hoarded and force fed a home

Right now there’s a vermin
(There’s a vermin)
gnawing on your mind
building the solace of old
The solace of home

Lost in the grey
where you’re forced to obey
Rat King damnation
Tangled in tales of our debts
Track Name: Tales of Hell
Don’t go peaking around
You are a stranger here
Teller tells the Tales of Hell
where the butcher lives
and sin begins

I share with the man in the mask
Sadist
blood slut,
don't you want the story to last
I share with the man in the mask
It’s clear, he’ll take his time

See how fast you turn flesh
when you dangle on your hook
Tried to tell you Tales of Hell
but you went ahead
and you took a look
so,

Enjoy the view
while you sway in crimson rain
By the time we are done
you’ll think this game is so much fun

Enjoy the view
while you sway
a corpse charade
By the time we are done
you’ll think this game is so much fun

I share with the man in the mask
Sadist
blood slut
don't you want the story to last
I share with the man in the mask
It’s clear,
( It’s clear)
he’ll take his time
I share with the man in the mask
It’s clear, he’ll take his time
Track Name: The Well
Coward were the bullets
you shot that night
Your selfless
shameful act of thrones
Bathe in your pity
and hold up tight
( Hold up tight)
It only takes one lonely night

Your soul’s been weighed and been measured
stripped of its gold and its worth
You’ve been a sinner, Maria
Down the well
to Hell
you go

Drown in
lifeless
your hellfire
Down in the deep,
in the deep dark well,
you’ll find Hell,
the morbid crime

Coward,
pull the trigger
eat the bullet and
die at home
all alone
What a shame!
Your life’s not worth my empathy
Empty empathy
Empty empathy
Bathe in,
Bathe in your pity
and prove you’re right
( Prove you’re right)
It only takes one lonely night

Your soul’s been weighed and been measured
Stripped of its gold and its worth
You’ve been a sinner, maria
Down the well,
to Hell
you go

Coward,
pull the trigger,
eat the bullet and
die at home,
all alone
What a shame!
Your life’s not worth my empathy
Empty empathy
Empty empathy
Bathe in,
Bath in your pity
and prove you’re right
( prove you’re right)
It only takes one lonely night

Your soul’s been weight and measured
stripped of its gold and its worth
You’ve been a sinner, Maria
Down the well,
to Hell
you go
Track Name: Witch Pit
Break your vow
Burn that little witch,
Bitch
Shame!
Luci’s made you Slave

Send the damned below
In pyre she will go
Blessed by blasphemy,
stone that little witch

Send the damned below
In pyre she will go
Blessed by blasphemy,
stone that little witch

Divine insurrection
Kill her with laughter,
saved her with shame

Jury by the flame
Hades calls his claim
on you

Dig her grave
Burn that little Witch
Bitch
Shame!
Luci’s made you slave

Send the damned below
In pyre she will go
Blessed by blasphemy,
stone that little witch

Send the damned below
In pyre she will go
Blessed by blasphemy,
stone that little witch

Jury by the flame
Hades calls your name

High Pope of Leather
Glory’s my name
Prophet of Judas,
and Lord of the Slain
Master of Legend,
goblins and fools
Prince of all sinners,
and King of the Ghouls

Witch Pit

Damn you murdered nun
Luci’s waiting
Break
your
vow
Luci’s made you slave

Jury by the Flame
Hades calls your name

High Pope of Leather
Glory’s my name
Prophet of Judas,
and Lord of the Slain
Master of Legend,
goblins and fools
Prince of all sinners,
and King of the Ghouls
Track Name: The Offering
Hail to,
to the cypress altar
Three lambs, a grave
enslaved

Feed your head
Let the divine take your soul
You don't have very long
Repent

Deep six,
as you wander on your own
Sinner

Hail to,
Stain glass mourners weeping,
treating the wounds of cypress

Stainless mourners weeping
to the crimson moon
Their hymns are out of tune
Divine insurrection
take direction
and Communion
The god and devil are as one
and Satan has won


Deep six,
as you wander on your own
Sinner
You can’t find yourself an easy way
There is blood along the door
Deep six,
as you wander on your own
Sinner
You can’t find yourself an easy way
There is blood along the door

Be the wolf in sheep’s clothing
Sleep with the viper
down in the nest
Be the wolf in sheep’s clothing
Shame on you
Satan knows best
Be the wolf in sheep’s clothing
Sleep with the viper
down in the nest

Luci I’m coming for you
Luci I’m coming for you
Luci I’m coming for you
Down the well to Hell we go

Be the wolf in sheep’s clothing
Sleep with the viper
down in the nest
Shame on you
Satan knows best

Luci I’m coming for you
Luci I’m coming for you
Luci I’m coming for you
Down the well to Hell we go

Deep six
as you wander on your own,
Sinner
You can’t find yourself an easy way
There is blood along the door
Deep six
as you wander on your own
Sinner
You can’t find yourself an easy way
There is blood along the door
