I’m not sure how much recording standards have changed in the last five years, but apparently enough for Whitechapel to remaster, remix, and reissue their 2007 debut, The Somatic Defilement. Check out the new recording above and get the details below.
Whitechapel‘s debut full-length album, The Somatic Defilement, is the album that firmly planted the band on an upward trajectory that has carried the band to the upper echelons of modern death metal. The band has taken The Somatic Defilement and placed it in the capable hands of Audiohammer Studios producer Mark Lewis for a complete remix, along with a remastering by Alan Douches. The results are staggering and give The Somatic Defilement a modern luster that’s up to the standards of the band’s most recent recordings.

The Somatic Defilement, originally released in 2007, is a concept album about Jack the Ripper’s infamous murders of prostitutes in East London’s Whitechapel district. This 2013 re-release sees the band tasking producer Mark Lewis to painstakingly bring the 6-year-old recording to today’s standard.
