Interview

Whitechapel Guitarist Discusses New Album "Kin"

Back in the 2000s, the metal scene was presented with a new and popular sub-genre named deathcore. Like many other styles that gain a large following, it received plenty of detractors, particularly from seasoned metal fans. But also like most styles which receive criticism, there's always one or two bands which gain the respect of even the most bitter of naysayers and almost certainly, the bands which received the most praise was Whitechapel.

Formed in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2006, the band are still going strong fifteen years later and are less than two weeks away from unleashing their latest album, "Kin." This eighth full length follows on from the previous release, "The Valley" and continues to see the band evolve their sound, songwriting and lyrical output. To find out more about "Kin," Metal Underground caught up with guitarist Ben Savage. You can watch the interview in full below.

Diamond Oz: The new album, “Kin,” is out on October 29th. It seems like it’s come about quite soon considering it was only announced at the end of August.

Ben Savage: I know, it’s nice. We’ve been sitting on this album since the last note was recorded in January, so we’ve been sitting on it for a good eight months and we’re ready to get it out.

Oz: Why has it taken eight months to release?

Ben: Just the mixing and the mastering and album art, which was started after the album was finished. I suppose that took about a month and also the vinyl printing, plus everything’s all backed up with the pandemic so it takes time.
