CD Review: Whitechapel

The Somatic Defilement (Siege of Amida/Candlelight)


The Somatic Defilement (Siege of Amida/Candlelight)

Whitechapel finally dropped its debut this summer, and the wait was worth it—The Somatic Defilement is half an hour of ripping, grinding, three-guitar death metal, both gruesome and jaw-droppingly proficient. The band ruled Knoxville’s all-ages venues in 2006, and now the rest of the world is starting to notice—tours of the U.S. and Europe and the success of The Somatic Defilement have landed them a deal with Metal Blade.
