It’s good. It’s Whitechapel. They didn’t try to break barriers or to reinvent themselves, though the guitar work seems to be a bit more technical. Considering there’s three guitarists in the band, it’s only fitting that they kick it up a notch. There also seems to be more melodic string work as well, accompanying the chugs, which is a nice touch. Phil Bozeman‘s voice is as powerful and scary as ever. ”Possibilities of an Impossible Existence” is my favorite song off the album, ending it strong as it’s the last track. The song has a groove to it that carries throughout the song, hooks you in and keeps you there. ”The Night Remains” is another song I got into. Aside from these two songs, the others didn’t seem to jump out at me as anything special. Whitechapel does become a bit monotonous, upon first listen the songs seem to blend together. Some people like that, I am one of them, but when it comes to more progressive or post-metal type music, not deathcore. Though I enjoyed the album, A New Era of Corruption is a stronger album in my opinion.
RATING: 7 / 10
