Whitechapel, Through The Eyes of the Dead, Impending Doom, A Different Breed of Killer, and The Empire's Collapse
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
20 Sep 2008
Whitechapel stands out in today’s overcrowded metal scene due in part to their ability to fuse memorable and even groovy riffs with crushing breakdowns, tremolo picking at neck breaking speeds, and incredibly evil and dissonant sounds. Their songs demand repeated listens and gang vocals at shows are common place. Metal Maniacs even took note of the band’s unique approach to metal guitars and their incredible work ethic: “A noted characteristic is Whitechapel’s three guitar assault; without a doubt an impressive apocalyptic sound. Propelled by the band’s DIY ethics, Whitechapel is a driving force that will continue to grow through hard work and determination.”
