Whitechapel To Enter Audiohammer Studios to Begin Recording New Album

Tennessee's WHITECHAPEL has announced that they will be in the studio on December 27th to January 31st with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, All That Remains, The Black Dahlia Murder, Chimaira, DevilDriver). WHITECHAPEL are set to record the follow up to the band's last album, "This is Exile," at Jason's Orlando, FL based Audiohammer Studios. Guitarist and founding member Alex Wade comments, "We're really excited to announce that we will be hitting the studio in January with a producer who needs no introduction, Jason Suecof. Suecof has produced some of the most brutal metal albums to date and we are excited for him to get his hands on our new material to make it the heaviest music we've created thus far."

"Also, Dusty Peterson has been signed on to handle the artwork duties. His dark, yet meticulously detailed style of hand drawn artwork is sure to bring out a truly vivid and brutal masterpiece. We really wanted our artwork for the record to speak as loudly for us as the music we are creating, thus, Dusty was picked for his unbelievably realistic and detailed hand drawn style. In this day and age where downloading a CD is as easy as typing the cd's name into a search bar, we wanted to make the artwork something creative and special for the fans who actually purchase the CD. Almost like owning a piece of art."

"As for the title and track listing, you'll just have to wait for that as the CD comes closer to completion."

This is Exile was unleashed on July 8th, 2008, and debuted at #118 on the Billboard top 200 charts, #2 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers, and #14 on Billboard's Top Independent albums. An accomplishment that is impressive for veteran artists, much less a relatively brand new metal act.

Whitechapel's current lineup is as follows:

Phil Bozeman - Vocals
Ben Savage - Guitar/Leads
Alex Wade - Guitar
Zach Householder - Guitar
Gabe Crisp - Bass
Kevin Lane - Drums

#4 ftw. deathcore's a sh** genre built on top of sh**, and just piles more and more sh** on top, then distributes it to the masses. this genre, along w/ black metal, rlly pisses me off. i'm not hating, i'm just critizing. which is the whole point to this site. i'm NOT just talking sh** w/o ever having even listened to them, kuz i have seen and listened to whitechapel soo i know i don't like them. the entire band just plays as fast as possible and during the breakdowns, slow but as heavy/hard as possible, and with extremely distorted instruments, ALL just soo that no one can notice just how much they dunno how to play, on top of that goblin-looking singer w/ a poor toad stuck in his throat. then again, i just described every other deathcore band.

^^^ u missed the picture. there's absolutely no need for name calling kuz i'm not calling them out or u. i know music is music, i love music ALOT. all i'm doing is critizing some type of "metal" that just takes the mindlessly brutal and moshing aspect of metal and just turns it into a genre in itself. but like i said, critizing the music is the whole principle of this very site.

acacia: Genre labels exist. It's a way of recommending bands to other fans of more extreme music. To paraphrase what Diamond Oz said to somebody in the past: If a fan of a band like say, Exodus, wanted to discover a new band, you'd be more prone to recommend a thrash (I know you hate labels, but stick with me for a second) band like say, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder for him or her to check out rather than a deathcore band like Whitechapel, because the Exodus fan is less likely to like deathcore than thrash. Metal is way too big of an umbrella genre; it doesn't delve into specifics the way that subgenres do.

Hence, labels are necessary to many fans. I just don't see why so many people take such offense to people labelling a subgenre of metal.

Typical response from a deathcore fan.

everyone who has something bad to say. please just don't. Obviously you felt compelled enough to say something bad about a band so you could get a reaction. if you don't like them then fine, your time would be better spent going to the the page of a band you DO like and give them positive feedback. I personally like Whitechapel, while im not a fan of most other deathcore. Nothinghead, i can understand why you may not like them, and i also can understand that you are giving criticism. but it seems a little more just senseless bashing on the band, and trying to troll the other members of this site. I'd be more inclined to respect your statements, had you actually gave some real criticism, rather than just saying "goblin-looking singer w/ a poor toad stuck in his throat". Really thats just name calling and hating. If you were to have said that you wernt a fan of the singer due to X or you thought the music was Y, then that would have been criticism. Anyway, this will be my one and only response and i advise all other users that if he responds to this, then he is simply a troll trying to generate conflict among this thread. GOOD DAY
