Knoxville, Tennessee's WHITECHAPEL have just released the new track "The Darkest Day of Man," off of the bands 3rd full-length release, "A New Era of Corruption," which is due out on June 8th. Listen to the track on the band's MySpace page.

Guitarist and founding member Alex Wade comments, "The first single we have released from the new album A New Era of Corruption is titled 'The Darkest Day of Man'. We played it live during our overseas touring at the beginning of this year in Australia and the UK and were getting a great response from the crowd for it. I feel this song perfectly demonstrates how we have progressed as a band musically and in our song writing, but have not stepped away from our signature Whitechapel sound.”

Artwork for "A New Era of Corruption" was handled by Brent Elliot White who has also worked with bands such as Job for a Cowboy and Carnifex. "A New Era of Corruption" features guest vocals from Vincent of The Acacia Strain ('Murder Sermon') and Chino from the Deftones ('Reprogrammed to Hate'), and features 11 new tracks with a bonus track available to those purchasing the album through iTunes or on vinyl.

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)

This stuff just doesn't do anything for me. I hate the term "deathcore" but that is really the best way to describe this. At least All Shall Perish tries to get very tech and keep their tunes interesting (even tho that approach rarely works). Really, varied chugging over super-fast double kick starts to sound monotonous after two or three songs. No disrespect to the the band because they certainly can play, just not my cup of tea. Its metal-by-numbers...

This song didn't amaze me, the first time I heard Possession I practically shat myself in excitement. This didn't do that, it's ok but is reminiscent of The Acacia Strain.

Btw, why is the photo of The Deftones?

Well Possession really didn't amaze me at all when I first heard it, in fact it remains to this day to be my least favorite Whitechapel song. And to be quite honest, these guys really are the ONLY deathcore band that I enjoy now that Despised Icon is broken up. This song impressed me more than any song off This Is Exile.

I also can't stand the term deathcore as it is NOT the best way to describe this genre. Honestly, anyone who actually listens to real hardcore bands like Madball and Crumbsuckers would agree with me, this music isn't even the slightest bit hardcore.

Not all death metal bands write about death, not all pop musicians are popular, not all country musicians come from the country, and not all deathcore bands are a mix of real hardcore and death metal. They're genre names not adjectives. The term hardcore has been hijacked and that probably isn't going to change.

Ever listen to Abscess? Great mix of death metal and hardcore punk, yet not even the slightest bit "deathcore".
