After headlining the Impericon “Never Say Die!” European tour with Thy Art Is Murder, Carnifex, Fallujah, and more last month, Whitechapel is ready to head out on the road again, in support of their new album, Mark of the Blade.
Hailed as “an exciting milestone” (AltPress.com), Mark of the Blade sees Whitechapel redefine who they are and what they are capable of with 11 tracks that leave a distinct impression on every listener.
As the most sonically and thematically engrossing record of Cattle Decapitation‘s maniacal discography, The Anthropocene Extinction was named one of the best albums of the year by Loudwire.com, MetalSucks.net, MetalInjection.net, among many others.
Currently on the road with Crowbar after a crushing Ozzfest performance, Goatwhore are currently finishing up work on their seventh full-length, which was recorded and is being mixed entirely in analog format.
Their previous record, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless (2014), was dubbed their most “varied record to date, as well as their strongest” (Pitchfork.com) and “unrelentingly pummeling and brutally oppressive”(PopMatters.com).
Since the release of their new album, Proponent for Sentience, this past September, Allegaeon has shared the stage with the likes of Black Sabbath, Disturbed, Megadeth and more at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, as well as joined label-mates Battlecross and Necromancing the Stone for the annual “Winter Warriors Tour”.
