Jim Foster comments: 
"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 shit are these guys RIPPIN'!"

Later this year Whitechapel are coming back to Europe to headline the 'Impericon Never Say Die Tour 2016'! "We are excited to return to Europe this fall with our new record and headline Never Say Die! 2016. We love Impericon and the Never Say Die!

Reunited with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse), Whitechapelhas redefined who they are and what they are capable of with Mark of the Blade. Kicking off with "The Void" - which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band's three-guitar attack - the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on "Decennium" bring the record to a close, it's impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. Guitarist Alex Wade explains, "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."
