Whitechapel?s debut full-length album, The Somatic Defilement, is the record that firmly planted the band on an upward trajectory that has carried them to the upper echelons of modern death metal. The band has taken The Somatic Defilement and placed it in the capable hands of Audiohammer Studios producer Mark Lewis for a complete re-mix, along with a re-master by Alan Douches of West Westside. The results are staggering and give The Somatic Defilementa modern luster up to the standards of the band?s most recent recordings. Fans can listen and order now at metalblade.com/whitechapel.
The Somatic Defilement, originally released in 2007, is a concept album about Jack the Ripper?s infamous murders of prostitutes in East London?s Whitechapel district. This 2013 re-release sees the band tasking producer Mark Lewis to painstakingly bring the six year old recording to today?s standard.
The band?s latest effort, the self-titled album that dropped on June 19, 2012 in North America, debuted at #47 on the Top 200 Chart, #10 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, #3 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Current), #2 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Core Stores) and #64 on the Top Digital Album Chart.
Whitechapel was one of the most well-received albums of 2012, with critical acclaim from some of the most respected music outlets including The New York Times, Alternative Press, Metal Hammer. The album also claimed bragging rights as the iTunes UK Metal Album of the Year for 2012!
?They build unforgiving walls of riff, and unpleasant ones too. Pleasure?s not the point, though. There is a militaristic certainty to Whitechapel?s work, which activates the true thrills of masochism.? New York Times
?The band?s best album yet by a wide margin.? 4/5, Alternative Press Magazine
WHITECHAPEL?s video for their song ?I, Dementia? can be viewed HERE. The video was shot by David Brodsky of MyGoodEye as part of the Scion AV Project.
