If you want to hear another new song from Whitechapel's upcoming new album, you can today. To build the anticipation for the release of Our Endless War, the band unleashed the album's title track "Our Endless War". It can be enjoyed here below in the lyric video created for it. Tell us if you liked the song.
You can still enjoy the track "The Saw Is The Law" right here. Our Endless War drops on April 29th in North America and April 25th/28th in Europe via Metal Blade Records.
Vocalist Phil Bozeman commented on what inspired him to write the song: "The focus behind the song 'Our Endless War' is not what a lot of people believe it to be. A lot of people will think it's just a stab at our government but it's more than that. The United States as a whole has been in this sort of downward spiral for quite some time now. It has to do with just us as a nation; our citizens, government, culture, etc. I truly feel like we are becoming those 'stupid Americans' that we are stereotyped as because of things like reality TV, gluttony, our healthcare system, school shootings and so many other things. I've been around the world and seen how different countries treat each other. It seems as though they are truly 'united' as one whereas it seems like we hate each other. I love my country and my freedom and I will always be a patriotic citizen of the United States but I'm scared of what the future holds for our generations to come. It seems as though we are fighting an endless war and we will never find that victory."
I like how tentative the article starts out. "If you want to hear another new song from Whitechapel's upcoming new album..."
I'll save everyone 4 minutes and all that pseudo-political bullshit backstory and say this song is terrible and the album as a whole won't sound any better. I don't know why they choose to write such stripped down formulaic stuff when they have the talent to push the envelope a little.
