Whitechapel set to record new album

Tennessee's Whitechapel will enter the studio later this month to begin recording a new album for Metal Blade Records. Tracking will take place from December 27th until January 31st with producer/engineer Jason Suecof (Trivium, All That Remains) at his Orlando, Florida based Audiohammer Studios. Guitarist Alex Wade comments: "We're really excited to announce that we will be hitting the studio in January with a producer who needs no introduction, Jason Suecof. Suecof has produced some of the most brutal metal albums to date and we are excited for him to get his hands on our new material to make it the heaviest music we've created thus far. "Also, Dusty Peterson has been signed on to handle the artwork duties. His dark, yet meticulously detailed style of hand drawn artwork is sure to bring out a truly vivid and brutal masterpiece. We really wanted our artwork for the record to speak as loudly for us as the music we are creating, thus, Dusty was picked for his unbelievably realistic and detailed hand drawn style. In this day and age where downloading a CD is as easy as typing the cd's name into a search bar, we wanted to make the artwork something creative and special for the fans who actually purchase the CD. Almost like owning a piece of art. "As for the title and tracklisting, you'll just have to wait for that as the CD comes closer to completion."
