Whitechapel have kept a relatively low profile to kick off 2012. Sure, they have announced Recorruptour and will be spending the summer on Mayhem Fest, but the main duty of the band to kick off the year was to finish a new full-length album, which they worked on with Mark Lewis and the geniuses at Audiohammer studios. The band will be releasing a self-titled LP on June 19th and have just released the first full track from the album, "Hate Creation"
This sounds like a much more mature Whitechapel. I love the main riff, Phil's vocals sound mean as fvck and overall, it's just a great death metal tune. Consider me excited to hear the whole thing. Pre-orders are now available through Metal Blade's website.
