spent several years lauded as one of the frontrunners in their genre, in 2012
WHITECHAPEL stand as a defining force in contemporary heavy music. Building
dramatically on the trademarked bludgeon of their first three releases, with
Whitechapel the Tennessean sextet have inarguably delivered their
most intense, dynamic, and downright hostile record to date. Drenched in
atmospheric darkness, the record is also rife with gripping melodies that drag
the listener in to the tumult, willing or otherwise, and across its ten tracks
it is infused with an emotional depth that pointedly separates the band from the
plethora of two-dimensional mosh-starters that have sprung up in their wake.
The album was engineered and mixed by Mark Lewis (Black Dahlia Murder,
DevilDriver), who also handled production duties alongside the band. The album
artwork was created by Aaron Marsh of Forefathers Group with art direction
provided by WHITECHAPEL.
The first single from Whitechapel entitled Hate Creation is

Returning to their rightful place on the road, the band are enthused to take
these new songs to their rabid fan base. They stand confident in their belief
that their followers will hungrily devour the latest evolution of their sound,
and having dramatically bolstered their fan base through blowing away the
unsuspecting crowds on 2010's Warped Tour they are sure to draw in new adherents
anywhere they play.
