To view the band’s “Bring Me Home” video and to purchase the record in various formats, visit: metalblade.com/whitechapel.

CATTLE DECAPITATION recently joined forces with Brujeria for a US tour in support of their most recent full-length, 2015’s The Anthropocene Extinction. As the most sonically and thematically engrossing record of CATTLE DECAPITATION‘s maniacal discography, The Anthropocene Extinction was named one of the best albums of the year by Loudwire, MetalSucks, and MetalInjection, among many others. To preview and purchase the acclaimed The Anthropocene Extinction, visit: metalblade.com/cattledecapitation.

Currently on the road with Crowbar following a crushing Ozzfest performance, GOATWHORE is finishing up work on their seventh studio album, which was recorded and is being mixed entirely in analog format. Their previous record, 2014’s Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, was crowned their most, “varied record to date, as well as their strongest,” by Pitchfork and, “unrelentingly pummeling and brutally oppressive,” by PopMatters. Constricting Rage Of The Merciless can be previewed and purchased at: metalblade.com/goatwhore.
Since the release of their new album Proponent For Sentience this past September, ALLEGAEON has shared the stage with the likes of Black Sabbath, Disturbed, Megadeth,and more at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, and is currently touring with labelmates Battlecross and Necromancing The Stone on the annual Winter Warriors Tour.

Whitechapel announces co-headlining USA tour with Suicide Silence this fall

296

Carnifex and Oceano to join as support, with Despised Icon on select dates

Currently on the road as part of the annual Warped Tour, Whitechapel has announced another USA trek – this time, co-headlining with Suicide Silence! Sponsored by BlackCraft Cult Clothing (blackcraftcult.com), the “Straight Outta Hell” tour also features Carnifex and Oceano as support, with Despised Icon appearing at select shows. This must-see fall run kicks off in late September and ends in late October – stay tuned for complete dates coming soon!

Whitechapel recently released their sixth full-length, Mark of the Blade, worldwide via Metal Blade Records. 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.”
