Single Review: WHITECHAPEL Third Depth by James K. Blaylock

Place of origin: Knoxville, Tennessee, USA
Genre: Metal, deathcore
Single: Third Depth
Taken from their full length The Valley, to be released on Metal Blade March 29
Release date: January 25, 2019
Whitechapel’s new single Third Depth from their seventh album The Valley, is powerfully breathtaking. The lyrics seethe with unimaginable pain. Which of course could be expected. As Phil Bozeman’s bandmates have always proven to be very supportive. This release is no exception, except, they decided to let him make the entire album based on surviving a harsh upbringing. “Phil has been upfront in in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that” says guitarist Alex Wade. He also said “I feel our music is Phil’s release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it,” They stand behind him. But even if you’ve never lived through such things the album promises to be hard-hitting! I know, I look forward to hearing it in its entirety. Especially since I grew up under similar circumstances; naturally this song spoke to me. There you have it the good, the bad and the ugly -James K. Blaylock
