Tennessee deathcore champions known as Whitechapel have released a simple yet crushing track called “The Saw is the Law”, referring to the saw blade that they use which is another iteration of the circle and stars used on the Tennessee flag. Is the song catchy? Yes. Does it prove that Phil Bozeman still has phenomenal vocal prowess? Yes. Does the band experiment or do they just fall into their own sound that they have rinsed and repeated since “This Is Exile”…..well…that’s for you to decide.
Today I pick the cream of the crop to review.
Music reviews, music reviews and more and more music reviews. Short and sweet (Not all the time) and to the point. Today we have some decent choices.
Yes we heard the one minute long “YOLO” track released earlier this week but Suicide Silence has confirmed the inclusion of Eddie Hermida into the band.
Let’s kick start this triple header Qreview sesh with Moss of Moonlight!
Humanity’s Last Breath takes exactly what Vildjarta has done and mimics it. Awkward yet “Thall” like rhythm sections that are very low end and slow in tempo. A very atmospheric album filled with layers of noise and a wall of guitar sound and punishing drumming. The result is indeed something to enjoy and headbang to. It’s just not innovative nor is it original.
It’s very rare that deathcore these days gets me this excited. Sure, I’m a fan of the crushing breakdowns and ultra low growling, but usually it’s just so rinse and repeat that I’m ultimately uninterested. I’ll enjoy the disc for a spin or two and never listen to it again. Well, after 3 spins of the new King Conquer back to back to back, I can say that this album is massive in sound, writing and overall metal tone. It’s not cheesy, not boring at all and it’s made for you to head bang. 1776 is definitely one of my favorite deathcore albums of the year.
I truly cannot read any of that shit. Yep! It must be a full on European tour! Thy Art Is Murder is hitting up you peoples over across the pond, so be sure to see the Australian deathcore giants while they are in your neck of the woods!
HATE is also streaming on Spotify now.
Whitechapel is going to release the remastered version of their debut album on April 16th and its one that both excites me and has me asking the question, “why?” I mean the album hasn’t been out that long and you would think the guys would rather record new material. Right? Then again, this album was one of the pioneering releases that put deathcore on the map. I bet if you ask a majority of Whitechapel fans, they’ll tell you that this was the album popped their deathcore cherry. Sure there had been groove death metal in the past, but The Somatic Defilement was something special and still is. To this day, its still my favorite release from them.
