    Personally I am a huge fan of Whitechapel's Candlelight debut The Somatic Defilement but I still think This Is Exile is pretty dank although slightly overproduced...what do yall think?

    one thing I do know is that the intro to the song 'Somatically Incorrect' sounds a lot like the intro to Ion Dissonance's 'The Surge'.

    They were both released around the same year...do you think Whitechapel "borrowed" a breakdown or what?

    The new album is less grind, more Melodic in my opinion, easier for the masses to listen to. The first album was and is always going to be a fuckin classic, and I listen to it or atleast a song or two off it everyday.
    I really dig This is Exile though, and I thought they did an awsome job.
    I just hope the next album doesnt start to get repetitive and they lose touch, like...Breakdown breakdown BREAKDOWN BREAKDOWN...no. I really hope not.
    I hope they keep in touch with their Deathmetal side and keep the "Core" part tuned down to what it is now.

    i would agree with all of the above. I enjoy whitechapel but they lost a bit of credibility whilst sincronised pogoing on stage when i went to see them. Dunno why i just didnt think it was cool and looked kind of stupid. Dont do it guys.

    I'd like to see these guys drop the breakdowns completely. Stuff like "Father of Lies" and various other parts of the album show that they are more than capable of writing heavy, intricate death metal without the syncopated breaks. IMO the new album is far superior to the first.

    haha in 2007 I played 2 consecutive nights with them as main support and I did think the on-the-spot-running thing was kinda gay, but the crowd seemed to love it so why not I guess :shrug:

    I dont like all that synchronized shit either, but when they do there intro song (With legions I think?) and they all headbang together, its pretty epic shit.
    For those of you who can get on youtube try and find a video, its pretty sweet.

    Yeah that song is a good example of where the break in deathcore should be, there is breakdowns there, however they are just sped up with some blast beat or octave riff over it...less of a CHUG CHUG breakdown, ya know?

    I personally love both albums. They both have elements that I enjoy. For instance, the lyrical content on TSD is just epic. And TIE has some of the best riffs they've ever written. I can't say I like either of them better than the other. Whitechapel always has been my favorite deathcore band since I first listened to the demo version of 'Prostatic Fluid Asphyxiation'.

    And for those hating on the running-man, it's fun to do! :lol: We've got stage antics that may look retarded but we still have a good time. And the synchronized headbanging during our intro is always necessary.

    DUDE!! ^^^ Amon Amarth....but yeah I agree that TSD is a classic in the deathcore genre...but TIE is kind of a breed of its own...I mean after TIE came out look at all the bands that kinda mimicked it...Personally IMO I think the new Impending Doom album sounded like a Whitechapel knock-off and so does Oceano's Depths

    And that is why Amon Amarth rules.
