Whitechapel

Whitechapel (Metal Blade)

Piano/synth and Ratt riff intro to a guttural, machine-gun roar ("Make It Bleed"), tribal swagger ("I, Dementia"), and Eastern end accents ("Dead Silence"). The fourth full-length from this Knoxville, Tenn., death metal sextet expands detailing from previous bruiser A New Era of Corruption. Looser, less right-angle technical, Whitechapel deals bone-breakers like "Section 8," one-upped by the succeeding "Faces" ("erase your words and die"), before blaring blindly toward the end, though the bleeding never stops. ***
