Whitechapel is an American deathcore band from Knoxville, Tennessee. The band is named after the Whitechapel district in East London, England, referencing the series of murders committed by the notorious Jack the Ripper. Founded in 2006, they made their presence known with 2007’s “The Somatic Defilement” and since then their profile has steadily grown, thus 2014’s “Our Endless War” saw them crack the top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 for the first time. The band has also released eleven music videos and are currently signed to Metal Blade Records and prepping for their seventh full-length release.
With six genre-redefining albums to their name for now, the Tennessee natives have carved themselves a unique niche in contemporary metal, and in doing so have spoken to legions of fans, leaving a mark in today’s music.
