WHITECHAPEL’s new album Our Endless War is a ruthlessly honed album that refuses to compromise on brutality; it is also by far WHITECHAPEL’s most streamlined, atmospheric, and emotionally powerful release, pushing every aspect of their sound to the next level.
During the recording of Our Endless War the band shot a series of behind the scenes and in-studio videos documenting the process. Today the fourth and final episode in the series has been released. This video is a general overview and recap of the making of the record. The members share their expectations and goals for the album in hope that it will help expand their career and take them to the next level. HERE.
The first episode in the series focuses on the pre-production and the band’s writing process for the new album. It can be viewed HERE. The second video showcases each member sharing their part in tracking the riffs that made up the album and can be viewed HERE. The third episode takes a closer looks at lead singer Phil Bozeman’s performance and lyrics on the album. This album is his darkest and most personal material to date lyrically and in the video he explains the meaning behind some of the songs on the album. The clip can be viewed HERE.

When it came to tracking the album the band considered no one beyond Mark Lewis, who helmed Whitechapel. For the artwork, the band turned again to Aaron Marsh, who suppliedWHITECHAPEL with its stark, arresting imagery, but again they wanted to push things to the next level. With the sound maturing the band felt like the artwork needed to reflect that. A new logo was introduced (the old logo is classic Whitechapel, and that’s not something the band plans on getting rid of) however as the band grows and changes they felt like they needed the logo to represent the maturity of WHITECHAPEL.
