3.0 goodNewBallistics | June 14th 16

Cleans on a Whitechapel record. Oh my. (They're actually pretty good.)

5 Bumps | Bump

2.5 averagedeadrisingx1 | June 15th 16

Definitely a step up from Our Endless War. Heavier, catchier, more mature.

2.5 averageMalConstant | June 14th 16

The lyrics are are very bro. How many times does phil need to tell us he doesn't give a
fuck? Every song apparently! Venomous is the best track.

3.0 goodShakeSoda | June 27th 16

About on par with Our Endless War. Decent stuff, but for these guys to have been around for as long as they have and continually rely on lunkheaded rhythms and rip Slipknot is a real bummer.

1 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentBleedIntoTheAbyss | June 20th 16

The cleans are actually really well done, not to mention the plentiful guitar solos. Surprised me.

3.0 goodwhiskysoakedleather | April 9th 19

Bring Me Home had the most substance behind a Whitechapel song up to this point, and Elitist Ones is a needed slap to the face of the "gatekeeper" fans of metal per se, but there isn't much beyond that that makes Mark of the Blade an overly rewarding listen.

4.0 excellenthellpickle | July 3rd 16

It's a 3.5 for me, but this band musically seems to be just getting better and better. rPeople ragged on Our Endless War, which to me seemed to be pretty much just the same as other release, but also tighter and just a fun listen. Especially if you're into working out and need something to get the blood pumping. rBut this album just.. I'm quite surprised, even though it's not what I'm looking for exactly (guess a little more simple.. ), but have to give props. rNot sure about the lyrics .. and I'm just adding this because I feel people just need to hear something bad about this band.

2.5 averagedbizzles | June 25th 16

Longtime Whitechapel fan here. Shockingly, the songs with cleans may be the best output rhere if we ignore the ballad-y (but good) solo in Bring Me Home and the premature fade-rout in the closer, Decennium. Anyway, those two tracks, Venomous, the awesome rinstrumental Brotherhood and opener, The Void, are all pretty great. The Corey Taylor rcomparison may be just, but I'm not a bitch so I don't have any bondage pants or rrepressed anger so I don't listen to Slipknot. The vocals and instrumentation in Bring rMe Home reminded me more of A Perfect Circle than anything else, which, surprisingly, rturned out pretty well. The remaining 6 tracks range from 'meh' to 'please stop.' Not rsure how I feel about this, but the good songs here are better than the good songs from rthe last album- of that much, I am sure.

Bump

4.0 excellentTrevor James | June 24th 16

Whitechapel have always been one of the better bands in the deathcore scene, but Mark of the Blade
is on a completely different level. Probably their best album to date and one of the best
deathcore releases in quite a long time.
