We have all grown up listening to bands on Metal Blade so this is a dream come true for us. We are grateful for the opportunity that Brian Slagel, Mike Faley, and everyone else at Metal Blade has given us, and are anxious to see what the future brings. Keep a look out for upcoming information about our debut release on Metal Blade as well as future tour plans. A big thanks to all of our fans, without you we could have never gone this far." - Whitechapel
"Whitechapel is an extreme metal band that conjures up the musical brutality of Jack the Ripper himself. With an impressive touring history and DIY attitude, Whitechapel shows great potential for the future and we are pleased to have them on Metal Blade." - Mike Faley, President of Metal Blade Records
