This track is written about the infamous first American serial killer H.H. Holmes. Holmes built a Hotel later coined the Murder Castle for its specific purpose of providing him with a place to kill his victims and opened its doors to tourists visiting the nearby World's Fair in 1893.
This edifice became Holmes own personal booby-trapped paradise. The space featured soundproof rooms, secret passages and a disorienting maze of hallways and staircases. The rooms were also outfitted with trapdoors over chutes that dropped Holmes’ unsuspecting victims to the building’s basement.
The basement was a macabre facility of acid vats, pits of quicklime (often used on decaying corpses) and a crematorium, which the killer used to finish off his victims.
And if all that isn't scary enough...just listen to the song!
