Whips/Chains has posted a video clip online for "Secular Front," which can be viewed below, and Deathwish Inc. also commented on the band:
"Deathwish is proud to welcome Louisville's Whips/Chains to our affiliated family. Featuring Ryan Patterson (Coliseum), Ben Sears (Black God), and Will Allard (Xerxes), Whips/Chains play a brand of heavy, apocalyptic music for the trying times we live in. Unpolished and pure, this massive sounding down-tuned three piece takes influence from bands His Hero Is Gone, Bolt Thrower, and others.
"'Master/Slave' is Whips/Chains monstrous debut 12"EP. Taking no time to set a tone, opener 'Secular Front' crawls through a wreckage of noise before breaking into a D-Beat stride. Other songs 'Brick and Mortar,' 'Trembling and Alone,' and 'Human Filth' carry this same bombastic quality, but also introduce subtle hooks into the fray. These dynamics make Whips/Chains not only powerful, but also uniquely listenable. Creating a mesmerizing push and pull throughout the grime and fury."
