Death metal like you've never heard. An exceptional album from Whitechapel.
Refusing to let the death metal genre dampen their spirits, Tennessee’s Whitechapel offer up their fourth offering of devastating riffs, punishing vocals, and, dare we say, borderline danceable death metal. Opener ‘Make It Bleed’ begins with a false promise of gentle instrumentation, but that is soon dispelled with a mammoth guitar throttling and deathly howls from frontman Phil Bozeman. ‘(Cult)uralist’ is where the band really begin to excel, as the music alternates between shuffling rhythms, venomous vocals and almost cathartic guitars, shaping the descent of the song. On this form, Whitechapel are one of the best and downright annihilating bands their field.
