WHITECHAPEL have revealed details surrounding their upcoming sixth record!
WHITECHAPEL will be releasing their sixth full length album Mark Of The Blade on 24th June via Metal Blade Records. Like their other releases, this new one remains true to the band’s roots while venturing into unfamiliar waters, both sonically and lyrically. They have released a lyric video of the title track which can be found below.
In this album WHITECHAPEL have redefined who they are and what they are capable of. It kicks off with the SLAYER-esque track The Void.
“It’s the most dynamic record we’ve done, in the sense that one song can be very aggressive while the next one will be softer and sentimental,” guitarist Alex Wade asserts. “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.”
The track list is below
