One take heed to Whitechapel‘s music and it is apparent that they are tackling some fairly darkish stuff, emotionally and bodily. In an interview with The Garza Podcast, Whitechapel vocalist Phil Bozeman touched on how he likes his metallic to be extra severe and harmful, and the way Web tradition does not precisely lend itself to that.
“This is the factor with our albums, it is available in threes,” mentioned Bozeman as transcribed by Metallic Injection. “Our first three had been the albums that individuals as we speak are saying like, ‘I want they gave the impression of A, B, and C,’ which is [The Somatic Defilement, This Is Exile, and A New Era Of Corruption]. Then the subsequent three had been [the self-titled, Our Endless War, and Mark Of The Blade]. These had been all like…. that was like our sound modified nevertheless it did not change, nevertheless it modified. Now we’re on this subsequent cycle of three which is The Valley, Kin, and [the next album]. I really feel like I need to break the cycle. I simply have an itch to write down heavy shit once more.
“We have at all times been heavy, however not like the primary three albums heavy. Like that dirty, you hear it and also you’re identical to ‘fuck, that’s disgusting.’ Whenever you become old, once you’re in a band, you experiment and also you need to strive one thing new, and also you do it and also you get that out. I am happy with it. It does not imply that I hate it. It is simply that I am feeling very nostalgic. Your roots name you again ultimately someday in your life. That is simply the mode I am in. I simply need to make one thing menacing and evil and identical to, scary.
“That is one factor with the web these days. Nothing is horrifying and severe anymore. Every thing’s a meme, every part’s a joke. I miss just like the scariness of shit. [Former Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker] was scary reside. Terrifying, and none of that basically occurs anymore. The one bands that basically sort of nonetheless have which might be like Meshuggah or Behemoth. In the event you watch Behemoth, you are not gonna meme that band. That band’s terrifying reside. I simply need that again. Now every part’s identical to, within the feedback part simply who can give you the funniest joke. I am not saying that I do not prefer to chuckle. In fact I do, however relating to music I just like the seriousness of shit. I like severe, scary… each time I watch a band, I need to really feel intimidated.
He continued: “That is not my character I am not like a wacky cartoon noises man. I like fuckin’ simply evil, menacing, terrifying, scary, intimidating sort of shit. Simply darkish. I really like shit like that. I’ve at all times beloved shit like that.”
