Whitechapel – The Valley

Within the Deathcore genre Whitechapel are one of the true originators of the sound and in 2016 they released an album called Mark Of The Blade (Metal Blade).

Whitechapel Streaming “Let Me Burn” Music Video

Whitechapel band 2

Whitechapel is kicking off their Brotherhood Of the Blade Tour, with dates posted below. The tour includes an appearance at the Self Help Fest in San Bernandino, CA on March 7, 2015 alongside The Devil Wears Prada, Pierce The Veil, Stick to Your Guns, The Ghost Inside, and more.

Stream the music video for “Let Me Burn” here, off their album Our Endless War, out now via Metal Blade Records.

Whitechapel vocalist Phil Bozeman explains:

“The basis of the video is about a man, his wife and daughter. The story depicts the degradation of the man and him going insane. He kills his wife and eventually douses himself in gasoline and begs his daughter to strike the match. But the whole point of the story is that the man has everything he wants and needs, but has no control over his mind and suffers with clinical insanity/schizophrenia and regrets everything he has done.”

Guitarist Alex Wade adds:

“It’s our first time trying a story based video versus a performance video with us playing and we’re really happy with how it came out. Phil’s idea for the concept of the video mixed with Mitch Massie‘s directing developed a very dark and sinister feel that represents the song well.”
