WHITECHAPEL Release "Elitist Ones". (The Official Video)

Whitechapel release "Elitist Ones" from 'their latest album "Mark of the Blade".
The video's directed by James Foster  and the album was released by Metal Blade Records

On, according to the vocalist, Phil Bozeman, the song is about people needlessly criticizing metal bands and essentially hopping on bandwagons

“The main reason for that song is because we are a metal band. And metal is one of the most criticized and very like, it’s one of the most… I don’t know. People are just so judgmental, it’s one of the most judgmental genres that you can be in. Because if you’re not this type of metal then you’re not true metal, there are just so many subgenres of metal that it’s almost like a fashion contest at this point. A fashion show, you know?

Like who’s got the most brutal, heavy, vocals. Or who’s got the heaviest sounding songs. It’s just a very… You know people call us deathcore and you know it’s whatever, it is what it is. But now if a band even has like screaming vocals and like a breakdown or something they’re considered deathcore. That was never considered deathcore.

But at the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter what it’s called. That’s what people fight over to post and people in the metal community fight over what matters the least. It’s just really frustrating to see that. I don’t care if a band that I don’t care too much for, if they wrote a song that I enjoy, then I’m going to enjoy the song. I don’t care who wrote it.

People are so quick to say like ‘Oh this song’s awesome, who is it?’ you know, and they say, ‘Whitechapel‘ and they’re like “oh those guys suck, I’m not gonna listen.’ That just doesn’t make sense to me. You should like music just for the way it sounds, not because who is associated with it. If you like the song, just listen to it. That’s what that song mainly was about.”

Current band members:
  • Phil Bozeman – vocals (2006–present)
  • Ben Savage – lead guitar (2006–present)
  • Alex Wade – rhythm guitar (2006–present)
  • Gabe Crisp – bass guitar (2006–present)
  • Zach Householder – rhythm and lead guitar (2007–present)
  • Ben Harclerode – drums (2011–present)

KREATOR Release Extreme Aggression 27 Years Ago

The phenomenal Extreme Aggression, fourth studio album by German thrash metal band KREATOR, released in 1989. Produced by Randy Burns, recording was complete by late March. After two shows in Greece, KREATOR traveled to England and between 15 April and 7 June 1989 played at least 37 dates across Europe.

Exactly on the June 19th, Extreme Aggression was released by Noise in Europe and Epic in the US. A few weeks later, the beginning of September, KREATOR arrived in New York to begin a US/Canada tour: 44 dates between 2 September and 28 October.

While the band had already gained a sizeable following in the US due to their 1987 tour with the crossover thrash band D.R.I., this album introduced many American fans to Kreator, primarily through heavy rotation of the "Betrayer" music video on MTV's Headbangers Ball, which was partly shot at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. This album was their first issued in the US by Epic Records. The album was also available on picture disc vinyl.

At least, two songs of that album, "Betrayer" and "Extreme Aggression" became hits. Check out the videos below:

REVOCATION Release Lyric Video "Monolithic Ignorance"

The Technical Death/Thrash Metal from Boston, Massachusetts, US., REVOCATION, just release a lyric video "Monolithic Ignorance". Directed/animated by Nick Hipa.
This song is from their latest album "Great is our Sin" which will be released on 22 July 2016

"Monolithic Ignorance"
(Music: Gargiulo)

A doomsday declaration the signs we cannot ignore
The oceans start to boil the dead wash up on our shores
Rivers flow with toxins sickening all in their wake
Swallowing the poison, savor its virulent taste

Foolishly we followed our rulers into the abyss
Critical mass no turning back we’ve fallen over the precipice

Monolithic ignorance
Devoid of intelligence
Devolved comprehension
Reversed progression

Extinction rates growing mankind a pestilent blight
Cancerous, the disease spreads devouring all life
The earth a barren wasteland, sulfurous smoke blacks out the skies
A dead planet now expires before our dying eyes

(Solo: Davidson)

Those who sought to rule this realm have only meddled with it
The error of their foolish schemes have brought about our ruin
