Whitechapel are among my favorite bands, playing one of the more cohesive styles of deathcore out there, not laden with breakdowns or chugs. For some reason, they have always stepped it up from record to record, but still keep their signature sound. With the majority of bands heading down the “djent” path these days, it’s very relieving to know Whitechapel are staying true. It also seems, by this update, that the new music has a death metal vibe to it, and I like it a lot. There are also hints of some acoustic elements, which translated really well with ‘End Of Flesh’ on their Recorrupted EP from last year. Check out the new studio update above!
Whitechapel is due out on Metal Blade Records June 19th.
