Album Review: WHITECHAPEL Mark of the Blade

Posted by | June 22, 2016

Witnessing the evolution of a genre shifting to its next stylistic phase is somewhat entertaining. It's like watching paint dry off a well-crafted piece of art. The process is slow, but in the end, worth it. Deathcore has been stuck in the same trenches for quite awhile, yet are finally beginning to reach and climb its way out. Pushing through the breakdowns and blast beats mold, a majority of these acts have changed a focus towards groove and melodic dynamics. With After the Burial and Fit for an Autopsy previously making a shift towards a progressive side of the genre, Whitechapel is the next to follow suit.
