It would’ve be more apt if Whitechapel had called their new album Our Endless Uphill Struggle. Their credibility within the saturated genre of deathcore depends upon them churning out consistent-sounding music to one of metal’s most unrelenting and demanding scenes. This album – their fifth studio album in 8 years – will be lavished with praise by their fans for doing just that, but why should anyone with a peripheral interest in the genre care?

Just in the same way that the 100m sprint record time is going to keep on getting faster and faster, the heaviness of the metal genre is just going to get heavier and heavier. It’s just how things go when you get to extremes.

Whitechapel have certainly not taken any weight off their delivery and with so many deathcore bands littering the gig circuit across the world, it’s difficult to really stand out but there are moments on their fourth release in six years that it’s clear that this band is trying to do just that.

The extended play music recording – a delicate challenge to produce as a cohesive and complete work, in order to leave a band as proud papas. Well, seems pops wasn’t around much on this one and his neglect has resulted in a dropout, crack-smoking failure of an EP.

This languid record contains but one original song and a cover, along with two remixes and an acoustic snoozer of ‘End of Flesh’ from 2010’s, A New Era of Corruption.

Photos + Live: Altamont Never Say Die! Tour @ London Forum – 15 November 2008

November 19th, 2008

parkway drive thrash hits

The Altamont Never Say Die! Tour has a lot of gumption putting seven bands – and good bands at that – onto a single bill. It’s almost too much to take in, a full five-solid hours of murderous intent, spat out from the stage with all the ferocity of a rutting rhino.

Support bands have wet dreams about crowds like tonight’s– rather than barging each other out the way at the bar, they’re packing the floor with a whirling-dervish hardcore pit. Carnifex and Whitechapel both respond by dropping breakdown after bloody breakdown.

New tours and releases roundup – 26 June 2008

June 26th, 2008

Nickelback Chad Kroeger Roadrunner Records Thrash Hits

A whole bunch of new albums have been announced these past few days. The most exciting has to be Trvium’s fourth full-length effort, Shogun. Unleashed on 29 September 2008 through Roadrunner Records ahead of their co-headline Unholy Alliance tour with Slayer, early reports suggest that they’re back to actually sounding like Trivium and that it’s rather a good album.

Undoubtedly less exciting but definitely more unit-shifting is the announcement that dour, 12 million-selling alt-metallers Staind have joined the Roadrunner stable. Their sixth album, The Illusion Of Progress is released on 8 September 2008, just before they tour arenas with their new labelmates, Nickelback (inexplicably pictured above).

Something that Thrash Hits .com is definitely looking forward to is the debut album from Rolo Tomassi. Recently signed to Hassle Records – home to Alexisonfire, Cancer Bats and Juliette & The Licks among others – Hysterics will be released on 22 September 2008 with a sweat-drenched free launch party that day at London’s Old Blue Last.

The best tour that we’ve heard about has Australian metalcore masters Parkway Drive and Boston legends Unearth headlining it this November. The Never Say Die Tour also has Architects, Protest The Hero, Whitechapel and Carnifex frequenting some odd parts of the country.
