iTunes Review

Fans of Whitechapel’s punishing death metal will bask in the darkened glory of the opening song from its 2011 Recorrupted EP. Brooding and gloomy ambience seeps into the start of “Section 8” before Phil Bozeman’s guttural growls and Hessian howls spew from your speakers. Underneath that larynx shredding, Ben Harclerode’s bludgeoning beats and an onslaught of six-string mayhem provide a brutal eardrum assault. A sludgy cover of Pantera’s “Strength Beyond Strength” follows, sounding like it was recorded from the depths of the La Brea Tar Pits. But in putting a Whitechapel spin on a Pantera classic, the band pays homage without one-upping the original (Dimebag Darrell would most likely be flattered). Before hardcore proponents of death metal dismiss the EP’s remixes of “Breeding Violence” and “This Is Exile,” keep in mind that KISS still rocked even after dabbling in disco (with 1979’s “I Was Made for Lovin’ You”). That said, Big Chocolate gives the former some stroboscopic fluttering, while Ben Weinman injects the latter with '90s-flavored industrial mechanics. An acoustic version of “End of Flesh” closes. 

Customer Reviews

um...

Of the 5 songs on the EP, Section 8 is the only one worth buying. If you like Pantera, you probably won't like what they've done with the cover. As for the 2 remixes, they stand as a poignant reminder that just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. As for the acoustic version of "End of Flesh," why even bother? I'm all behind Whitechapel and what they do, but that's probably why I regret paying for this EP.

Dissapointed

I have been a Whitechapel fan since Era of Corruption, having gotten that album and This is Exile. I went out this past summer to see them play Summer Slaughter and was blown away by their performance. This on the other hand I find a dissapointment. Let me first say though on a lighter note, Section 8 is a terrific song. It has that dark, eerie feel that Whitechapel is known for. That said, the rest of the album is lacking in creativity. Strength Beyond Strength is originally a Pantera song, and maybe it's just me... but leave it to Pantera. Something about Chapel covering the song just doesn't sound right (literally). The dubstep remixes and the acoustic remix just seem out of a place. Some bands can pull it off but it doens't seem to flow as well or come together here. So I suggest gettting Section 8 for my Chapel fans out there, but other than that, I see this EP as a "fail," and hopefully the next album blows us away.

Sick

The two new songs are awesome, Big Chocolate is amazing if you like dub. The acoustic is amazing as long as you don't have blinders on to everything that's not metal.
