Whitechapel Bio:

Formed in February 2006 by Phil Bozeman, Brandon Cagle, and Ben Savage, Knoxville, Tennessee’s Whitechapel seamlessly meld death metal, grind, and hardcore to create a blistering brand of modern death metal that leaves fans no other choice but to throw themselves into an uncontrollable frenzy on the dance floor & in the pit.

In early 2006, the band finished a six song demo, which was made available exclusively on their MySpace page. By November of 2006, Whitechapel gained the attention of Siege of Amida Records for a record deal in Europe with US distribution through Candlelight Records. November also brought on new drummer, Kevin Lane, who offered an entirely new level of professionalism and technicality to the band. An accident in May of 2007 forced Brandon Cagle unable to play guitar. He was replaced by Zach Householder and the lineup has held strong ever since.

Whitechapel’s musical chops definitely shine through on their debut album, The Somatic Defilement (released via Candlelight and S.O.A.R.). The record systematically crushed those who opened their ears to it and propelled Whitechapel onto the worldwide metal scene and has kept the band touring ever since. They toured with Darkest Hour, The Red Chord, Cephalic Carnage, The Devil Wears Prada, crushed the audience at 2007’s Saints and Sinners Festival in New Jersey and hit the road in June of 2008 with the Summer Slaughter Tour featuring The Black Dahlia Murder, Cryptopsy, Dying Fetus, Kataklysm, etc.
