WHITECHAPEL - Auckland, Thursday September 22nd

As the death metal genre continues to explode, Knoxville, Tennessee's WHITECHAPEL stand bloody head and bruised shoulders above the pack. With a ruthlessly brutal aural assault built upon merciless blastbeats and spine-destroying breakdowns, their three guitarists deliver immense riffs and monstrous leads while vocalist Phil Bozeman vomits out lyrics that avoid clichés and give fans something to think about as they scream them back. Basically stated, this is as shit-your-pants exhilarating as modern metal gets.

Whitechapel formed in 2006 and it did not take metal fans long to realise that they had something very special going on in their midst. Building on such momentum, it is unsurprising that the sextet soon found themselves courted by record labels and inside a year they were signed by the luminaries at Metal Blade following an intense bidding war between eight labels hungry to add the southern wrecking crew to their roster, and the band immediately set about working on the titanic, Billboard-climbing 'This Is Exile'.

This Is Exile threw a gauntlet down to all others trying to crowd into the genre alongside them, representing a quantum leap forward in terms of songwriting and focused vitriol. Hitting the road hard, both their profile and army of fans grew rapidly. The band toured relentlessly, playing shows and festivals the world over and sharing the stage with such legends as Slayer, Cannibal Corpse, Killswitch Engage, Unearth, Behemoth, and Chimaira.

Following up such a punishing album and the touring that surrounds it would be an unenviable task for most, but Whitechapel are just getting started, and the bands latest masterpiece 'A New Era Of Corruption' showcases a group who are imposingly focused and determined to write the heaviest, most intense and dynamic music possible. Primed to take A New Era Of Corruption to hungry audiences around the globe, Whitechapel are continually proving themselves an indomitable force, and their fan base is primed to grow and grow as more people are exposed to their unique brand of sonic violence.

And in 2011, Whitechapel return to New Zealand for their first headlining show after their supporting tour with Trivium in early 2010. With a new album under their wings and the top billing all theirs in which to unleash, their one off New Zealand appearance in 2011 will undoubtedly crush their previous live offerings on these shores.

Prepare to be corrupted.

Who the fuck writes those write-ups? They need to have their thesaurus sewn shut across their anus.

Fuck yeah this cunt avoids cliches:

Eyes are glaring red with a conscious set to kill
Nostrils flared and the eyebrows parallel
Thriving on the chaos and the suffering I have caused on you all
A dispute of man and diabolical beasts
How could one cipher such a malevolent being
I am certain of humanity's demise
Man will inspire the words of a new era of corruption
Now that I can control the orifice of mankind
I gladly inform, you're all in a world of shit
Coprophagia would be the only solution
Open your fucking mouth and ingest what you are
Silent you will remain while I invoke my presence on your world
Urges I must satisfy again and again
Inside a shell festering is the mind of a bastard child
Cover the earth with the blood of this lamb
We are the disease that spreads amongst this filthy race
Collect the dust of the ones who have fallen to the lies
It is your last resort to a wretched memory
Take this life for granted and hold it tight
For we have you all under control because
We are the disease
Man will inspire the words of a new era of corruption
God damn you all


I like how his lyrics avoid being cohesive, and focus on being one-line cliches instead. Genius.

Judging by the video the vocalist is a huge Creed fan.

1:20 to 1:50 just sounds like low tier Nu-Metal.
