Hailed as “an exciting milestone” (Alt Press), Mark of the Blade was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse) and sees Whitechapel redefine who they are and what they are capable of with the resulting 11 tracks. Kicking off with “The Void” – which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band’s three-guitar attack – the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on “Decennium” bring the record to a close, it’s impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. Alex Wade explains, “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.

Later this year Whitechapel are coming back to Europe to headline the ‘Impericon Never Say Die Tour 2016’! “We are excited to return to Europe this fall with our new record and headline Never Say Die! 2016. We love Impericon and the Never Say Die! Tour so we’ve been looking forward to this since it was offered to us. The line up is solid and heavy so don’t miss this tour!” says Alex Wade from WHITECHAPEL!
