Worth a purchase, I suppose, if you want a strange grab bag of deathcore songs. Like many of Big Chocolate’s remixes, it’s basically the same song with some weird reverb floating throughout.

At any rate, I’ve no inbred opposition to deathcore and its variants if done well. Lots of distorted, yawning Skrillex-like aesthetics and some noodling guitar melodies applied for texture.

But with this ep and recorrhpted new one coming out, the quality and brutality of their music is completely gone, and they wbitechapel can’t seem to get that low depth in tone. It’s an interesting take on the song for sure, and it’s somehow pleasing to know that every now and then the guitarists are recorruted of something besides simple breakdowns. I personally thought “End of Flesh” was one of the more overlooked songs on that album – it was probably the best choice for an acoustic, considering it’s one of the only ones that had some melody besides distorted semitone chugs.
Recorrupted is really just a bunch of odds and ends being used to tide over the deathcore fan, and many such releases in all genres aren’t fit to scrape your boots with. Bands alphabetical country genre Labels alphabetical country Reviews R.
Recorrupted – Wikipedia
There is a particular, mechanical resonance that Whitechapel graft to this song that I thought showed some promise, and a nice dual lead melody that slices through its midsection like a plastic surgeon curbing a midriff, but in general I found that there were no memorable riffs throughout, it just sort of bludgeons along into its own grooving oblivion. Lots of distorted, yawning Skrillex-like aesthetics and some noodling guitar melodies applied for texture.
Finally, an instrumental acoustic of a song off of the last album. Add that to the fact that the bass – the testicles of pretty much every deathcore song ever – is quite glaringly cut from this song, and the remix isn’t of much worth at all.
It’s quite middle-of-the-road – I believe it’s trying to be catchy, but that’s the thing – you’re remixing a deathcore song. This version almost begins to sound like a completely different song, though the basic melody is noticeable in quite a few places.
Write your own review. This is instrumental, and not bad as background noise, but neither is it remotely compelling.
In fairness, there are some elements to the sole new original track that, “Section 8” that I was not completely turned off by. Here, however, not much has changed from the last release: In addition, the beats are much more repetitive, and recorrupetd they feature a more creative use of samples from the song it doesn’t really redeem it from the fact that whiitechapel are only three different riffs from the song used in this remix. I recorrupte thought I’d see a metal album composed of a bunch of alternative versions of songs, but being a rather mainstream deathcore band, I suppose it’s only natural that Whitechapel step up to the plate.
Well, honestly, I think this is probably the least progression Whitechapel have ever made between releases – This Is Exile was much more melodic and more typically deathcore-ish than The Somatic Defilementand A New Era of Corruption saw the band abandoning this more wimpy edge in favor of a more mechanical, djenty guitar tone and a chugging style of rhythm not too far off from Emmure’s later works. Well, it wasn’t as terrible as I expected – the remixes feel like a bit of a waste, but the rest of the material seems to make up recorrupfed it.
I feel like I enjoy this a lot more on a personal level compared to a statistical one. A disheveled and disjointed teaser for whatever the band is planning next in the full-length realm, straight from the vaults of Metal Blade, who always seem to ply their fingers along the genuine, trendy pulse of extreme music.
I know it’s a bit cynical to make predictions on the band’s future career based on one song, but fuck, the band had a whole year to write one goddamn song and quite a few bands can write a solid album in that amount of time.
Job for a Cowboy and even Carnifex have surprised me in the past, but I’ve yet to be impressed by this crew, though I can hear some latent potential slumbering inside them like a kraken on its murky leash.
This is not something meant to be so seriously, as it largely features remixes and a cover song, but regardless I found it to be weaksauce to the nth degree. The cover of Pantera’s “Strength Beyond Strength” manages to make the tracks inherent, ball-fisted mosh break into whitechapell dull and methodical.

MutantClannfearNovember 10th, Despite the general taboo associated with the following statement, I’d say this blows the original out of the water. The synths in the back half of the remix do make the song very different, and almost give it a Lykathea Aflame-esque recorruptted, but overall this is a pretty useless remix.
Whitechapel – Recorrupted – Reviews – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
But within the span of a minute, we’ve already relapsed into some boring drudge of muted groove chugs which bounce along like faux dreadlocks at a Korn gig, pants reorrupted baggy that even when they jump da fuc up they’re still dragging on the discarded butts, rolling papers and abandoned gig flyers. At any rate, I’ve no inbred opposition to deathcore and its variants if done well.
Despite being an inconsistent album, I enjoyed the basic premise of A New Era of Corruption ; and while I would admittedly let the band get away with making two identical records if one perfected the sound laid out by the previous album, the band appears to be making more problems for themselves than solving any.
I’m not going to try to tell you what genre they are, because I have fuck’s worth of a clue, but I knowing wbitechapel musical background I probably wouldn’t be wrong if I took a guess at Big Chocolate’s remix being a dubstep song.
Why couldn’t he remix one of the less inherently chuggy songs, like “The Darkest Day of Man”? Hey, at least it’s better than everything else on this EP I’ll spend a bit more time on “Section 8”, since considering it’s the only new material the band has written since their last full-length, it’s likely a hint at their future in terms of song structure and whatnot.
