Whitechapel set to re-issue debut album

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 1:48 PM PT


Official press release:

Whitechapel's debut full-length album, The Somatic Defilement, is the album that firmly planted the band on an upward trajectory that has carried the band to the upper echelons of modern death metal. The band has taken The Somatic Defilement and placed it in the capable hands of Audiohammer Studios producer Mark Lewis for a complete re-mix, along with a re-master by Alan Douches. The results are staggering and give The Somatic Defilement a modern luster up to the standards of the band's most recent recordings.

The Somatic Defilement, originally released in 2007, is a concept album about Jack the Ripper's infamous murders of prostitutes in East London's Whitechapel district. This 2013 re-release sees the band tasking producer Mark Lewis to painstakingly bring the six year old recording to today's standard.

not needed really, how about writing some new material? oh that's right the drummer moved on so the main integrity of the band is in jeopardy.
