Listen to Whitechapel’s New Song “Brimstone”
If you’re like me, you are currently recovering from an evening of Halloween debauchery that kept you out ’til sunrise, or damn near to it. Whether or not you’re a Whitechapel fan, this oughta help put some pep in your step: a heavy, groovy new song called “Brimstone.” As in “fire and.”
The track will appear on Whitechapel’s new album, The Valley, which will come out March 29 on Metal Blade. The cover art, as you can see, says the album is “Based on true events.”
And what are those true events? Well, the title refers to Hardin Valley, west of Knoxville, Tennessee, where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Says Bozeman of the record’s content:
“It’s all about me as a child, and some of it is me looking back on that time from the perspective of now. Also, it’s my interpretation of my mom’s struggles and her different personalities. She had a journal that contained very disturbing and sometimes evil writings, and some of her quotes and a lot of that journal is in the lyrics.”
Friendly reminder: The Valley also features drums by Navene Koperweis, currently of Entheos and formerly of Animals as Leaders! You can pre-order it here.
