Tennessee’s WHITECHAPEL are set to enter Audiohammer Studios in Orlando, Florida to begin recording the follow-up to 2008’s This is Exile album. The band will be teaming up with producer Jason Suecof, who has done production for TRIVIUM, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, CHIMAIRA, DEVILDRIVER, and many more.
Guitarist and founding member Alex Wade comments: “We’re really excited to announce that we will be hitting the studio in January with a producer who needs no introduction, Jason Suecof. Suecof has produced some of the most brutal metal albums to date and we are excited for him to get his hands on our new material to make it the heaviest music we’ve created thus far.
“Also, Dusty Peterson has been signed on to handle the artwork duties. His dark, yet meticulously detailed style of hand drawn artwork is sure to bring out a truly vivid and brutal masterpiece. We really wanted our artwork for the record to speak as loudly for us as the music we are creating, thus, Dusty was picked for his unbelievably realistic and detailed hand drawn style. In this day and age where downloading a CD is as easy as typing the cd’s name into a search bar, we wanted to make the artwork something creative and special for the fans who actually purchase the CD. Almost like owning a piece of art.
“As for the title and track listing, you’ll just have to wait for that as the CD comes closer to completion.”
