I love, not like, all types of Metal. Ranging from Technical Metal(The Faceless) to thrash to Straight-Up-Metal such as Whitechapel. This is a band that is in your face with very aggressive riffs, beats that never let up and down and dirty vox. This album is a good progressive movement for the band. It really makes me mad that people are saying that this album is messy and doesn't make sense. I guess it kind of sounded like that to me the first time I heard it, but after hearing it a few times, all the parts came together in my head, and I was anticipating the hard as hell parts that were to come in the songs. I am a big fan of the Deftones, and I was very surprised to hear that Chino collaborated with Whitechapel on Reprogrammed to Hate(track 4), which is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Some other amazing tracks that STAND OUT are End of Flesh, Darkest Day of Man, and A Future Corrupt. There also more sic solos in this album than the last. Overall, if you like Whitechapel, this album is a must.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the contours of heavy metal, the definition of "heavy" music, etc. The short answer is that Whitechapel's "A New Era of Corruption" is heavy metal and is heavy as f#^&. My longer answer follows.

Whitechapel's first album, "The Somatic Defilement", was top-shelf deathcore. With "A New Era of Corruption", they have melded their influences into a distinct, diamond-sharp alloy sheathed in state-of-the-art production. There are fewer breakdowns, but other facets of the music are highlighted-- particularly, the song-writing itself (not to encourage the idiotic cliché that song-writing and ample breakdowns are mutually exclusive). The vocals definitely are more up-front, as another reviewer noted, but Phil Bozeman is in the top echelon of metal frontmen. What the band did not do is crank out third-tier death metal.

A discussion of perception is appropriate to this review, as the lyrics to A New Era of Corruption read like a concept album examining themes of identity, perception, immortality, power, and technology. The album artwork is a perfect match, true to the urban, apocalyptic and sci-fi themes befitting deathcore.

I was looking at an Eyehategod review on here where someone mentioned the mind-expanding (herbal remedy -friendly) qualities of the record and I thought, yeah, I can believe it, it is abstract and heavy at the same time. Just because it is heavy metal does not mean it is not mind-expanding or even "psychedelic" in the narrower sense. Since the advent of the so-called grunge era at least, heavy music, including heavy metal, has consistently been the most psychedelic music available. Part of the reason should be obvious-- we, humankind are dense as bricks.

Whitechapel is a radical band and they sound like no other band. I have 4 other deathcore bands in my collection: Earth From Above, the Great Commission (both Strike First Records),Oceano (Earache Records), and Job For A Cowboy (Whitechapel's labelmates on Metal Blade).however, Whitechapel does not stick with one sound. if you listen carefully, you can hear doom metal and traditional metal mixed in as well, which makes it impossible to pigeonhole them into one genre. I believe that they are one of the few bands that blaze their own trail instead of following other trails. will these guys make a junior effort? would love to see it happen.

The only word you can really use to describe this album is Phenomenal!! I think my three favorites are "Darkest Day of Man" "Breeding Violence" and you have to love "Murder Sermon." Murder Sermon is fast paced for the verses and then slower for Vincent Bennett (The Acacia Strain), and it's perfection through and through!! This album is probably the climax to their career but I'm very confident it is very far from over, I can see them driving a legacy like Cannibal Corpse, or even Slayer. Phil Bozeman is among my all time favorite vocalists for his brutal sucker punch growling and very sinister sadistic tone. Whitechapel is a must have in any metal fan's collection!!!

Following a brief excursion into a more traditional deathcore sound (on 2008's "This Is Exile"), the third album from Tennessee's Whitechapel finds the band diving headlong back into the gore-inspired deathgrind murk that birthed them. While maintaining their usual downtuned chug and stomp reminiscent of All Shall Perish and The Acacia Strain, 2010's "A New Era Of Corruption" is actually more influenced by the likes of Carcass (and their predecessors) than anything else. Whitechapel's sound is essentially comprised of a three-headed guitar attack (which evokes Suffocation and Dying Fetus), coupled with Black Dahlia Murder-styled machine gun blasting, and absolutely killer vocals. And the heck of it all is, this is a Christian metal band. And "A New Era..." is not only a very heavy record -- it is a full-on, no-holds-barred brutal one!

"Devolver" boasts crunchy, chugging, rusty-sounding riffs, driving, underlying blast beats, and monstrously brutal and crusty, Dying Fetus/Misery Index-esque vocals,. Add some chunky, lurching hardcore breakdowns and occasional guitar harmonies to the mix and the end result is a very strong and memorable set opener. "Breeding Violence" also has really powerful and memorable vocal patterns, occasionally punctuating near goregrind-esque pig squeals with high-register, black metal-like shrieks. "The Darkest Day Of Man" is fueled by blistering, impeccable, machine gun blast beats, thus making it a piece of almost pure grindcore (although some extra low and evil-sounding deathly growls are included, here.) "Reprogrammed To Hate" is a kind of ordinary deathcore song, and it certainly is a breakdown-happy one.
