When it comes to the genre of Deathcore, there is absolutely nobody better than Whitechapel in my opinion. They are the vets of the genre and the absolute elite of the genre. That is why the band has decided to call out all the haters in the world which has a lot of them in their new music video for the track Elitist Ones which comes out the band’s new record Mark Of The Blade (which is out today). Jim Foster directed the band’s video and he comments saying, “As fans of Whitechapel, my entire team and I were stoked when Mike Faley (Metal Blade Records) asked me to write a treatment and direct for the band. As a director, my job is always easier when the band is rippin’…and holy s–t are these guys RIPPIN’!” The video features the band playing in a warehouse while a woman who looks to be donning some face paint in the style of a snake while a snake that dons the bands new cover wraps himself around her arm. The thing about the video is that the track also signifies a huge change in sound for the band from the breakdowns to a more groove metal oriented sound. Guitarist Alex Wade talked about it saying, “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.” Check out the band’s video below:
