Knoxville, Tennessee's WHITECHAPEL has released the cover art and track listing for their upcoming new album, "A New Era of Corruption," which is due out on June 8th via Metal Blade Records. "The album is finally 100% complete and we couldn't be more excited. I think this record truly represents where we are as musicians at this point in our career. A New Era of Corruption is the heaviest and most aggressive material we have written to date," comments guitarist and founding member Alex Wade, Some of you may notice that the title of the new record, A New Era of Corruption, is a line from the song 'Possession' off of our last album This Is Exile. We wanted to name the CD this to bring a little flavor from 'This Is Exile' into the new CD, as well as I think the name represents this new age of extreme metal that we are currently rising in. The album is not a concept record like This Is Exile was. It just has its own general theme and each song deals with its own topic track by track."

The tracklisting for "A New Era of Corruption"is as follows:

01. Devolver
02. Breeding Violence
03. The Darkest Day of Man
04. Reprogrammed to Hate
05. End of Flesh
06. Unnerving
07. A Future Corrupt
08. Prayer of Mockery
09. Murder Sermon
10. Nercomechanical
11. Single File to Dehumanization
12. Animus (Bonus Track available only on digital and vinyl versions)

Handling artwork for A New Era of Corruption is Brent Elliot White. Alex comments, "Brent handled the artwork for the record and absolutely nailed it. The dark and ominous vibe he portrayed with his art fits the mood of the CD perfectly."

"A New Era of Corruption" features guest vocals from Vincent of The Acacia Strain on the track Murder Sermon and Chino from the Deftones on the track Reprogrammed to Hate. Alex elaborates, "Vincent has been a long time friend of the band and we have always talked about him doing guest vocals on one of our records, so naturally his style of vocals fits our music perfectly and sounds great. We're honored to have Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno on our record. All of us are huge Deftones fans so it's pretty surreal for us. He absolutely killed his part on the album and it's everything I envisioned it would be. Plus it's cool that Chino was so opened minded to do vocals on something so extreme; I think that it sounds fantastic."

There was an increase in quality between Somatic Defilement and This is Exile; I'll bet the new one is even better. I can't wait \m/ \m/

Maybe this album will actually be decent? If (just my opinion though) Bring Me the Horizon could do it...

Nah, probably not.
