Returning with the fifth full-length of their decimating career, there is no stopping the juggernaut that is WHITECHAPEL. Our Endless War is the culmination of everything the Knoxville, Tennessee sextet have worked toward since their inception. A ruthlessly honed album that refuses to compromise on brutality, it is also by far their most streamlined, atmospheric, and emotionally powerful release, pushing every aspect of their sound to the next level.
The anticipation continues to build as the release date of WHITECHAPEL’s new album Our Endless War draws nearer. In a little more than two weeks on April 25th the band’s fifth full-length record and fourth for Metal Blade Records will be released. 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 second video from the recording sessions has been posted. This episode focuses on the tracking sessions for the album. It showcases each member sharing their part in tracking the riffs that made up the album and 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 supplied WHITECHAPEL 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.
