Whitechapel launches video for new single, “When a Demon Defiles a Witch”

– February 20th, 2019 –

On March 29th, Whitechapel will release their 7th full-length, The Valley, via Metal Blade Records. Mixed by David Castillo, mastered by Ted Jensen, and produced once again by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder), The Valley is a reference to the part of Hardin Valley (west of Knoxville, Tennessee) where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Set against this backdrop, he approaches his subject matter unflinchingly, building upon everything that came before, making it clear that he has survived that which he was forced to endure and is not afraid to confront it. “Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that,” says guitarist Alex Wade, who alongside his bandmates, stands 100% behind everything their vocalist has to say. “I feel our music is Phil’s release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well.”

For a preview of The Valley, a video for the new single, “When a Demon Defiles a Witch” (directed by Mathis Arnell – naughtymantis.com), can be viewed at: youtu.be/RuRZYB9EEZM

Artwork by Branca Studio

Anyone throwing The Valley on for the first time will immediately recognize it as the work of Whitechapel, yet as has been the case with each release, there is also evolution in play. “Sound-wise, it’s all over the place,” Bozeman states plainly. “There’s aggression, and then you’re hit with ominous and emotional guitar riffs. It’s mean, but then transfers to soft and inviting. It’s a whirlwind of emotions throughout.”

Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014′s Where Greater Men Have Fallen is a more raw, “old school sounding” record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as “a direct energy” and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that Exile Amongst The Ruins is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.

Leprous Releases “Illuminate” Music Video

Norway’s acclaimed progressive group Leprous is about to release fifth studio album “Malina” next week (on August 25th, 2017) via InsideOutMusic. The album’s latest single “Illuminate” is being released today in a video recently shot in Romania and directed by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media.

Leprous comments: “‘Illuminate’ is one of the most groovy songs we’ve ever made! It’s the Leprous people know, but in a fresh version. The abstract and dark video from Costin underlines the atmosphere of the song perfectly.”
