Appearing on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Kicking off this Saturday

Today WHITECHAPEL has unleashed the video for the track "I, Dementia" which comes off of their new full-length self titled album, which was released last week via Metal Blade Records. The video is receiving its exclusive premiere today via The PRP and was shot by David Brodsky of MyGoodEye as part of the Scion AV Project. Get a first look at the video HERE. Scion A/V Metal works with the world's best and most vital metal bands, bringing them to the stage at Metal Matinees, releasing exclusive audio releases and creating new music videos.

The album debuted at #47 on the Top 200 Chart, #10 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, #3 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Current), #2 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Core Stores) and #64 on the Top Digital Album Chart.

Whitechapel is available to order in exclusive bundle packages HERE.

Singer Phil Bozeman and guitarist Alex Wade offer their insight on the new album with a track-by-track breakdown exclusively hosted by AbsolutePunk HERE.

Having spent several years lauded as one of the frontrunners in their genre, in 2012 WHITECHAPEL stand as a defining force in contemporary heavy music. Building dramatically on the trademarked bludgeon of their first three releases, with Whitechapel the Tennessean sextet have inarguably delivered their most intense, dynamic, and downright hostile record to date. Drenched in atmospheric darkness, the record is also rife with gripping melodies that drag the listener in to the tumult, willing or otherwise, and across its ten tracks it is infused with an emotional depth that pointedly separates the band from the plethora of two-dimensional mosh-starters that have sprung up in their wake.

The album was engineered and mixed by Mark Lewis (Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver), who also handled production duties alongside the band. The album artwork was created by Aaron Marsh of Forefathers Group with art direction provided by WHITECHAPEL.
