So here’s how it stands, from my perspective: if you’re already a fan of Whitechapel, then Mark of the Blade is going to be an album you will find great joy in
We certainly wouldn’t go back to a record label. We’ve become very comfortable as an independent unit, but I don’t know if we’d go back to Indiegogo because I think it would be disappointing if we were to do it again and it wasn’t so successful. I really don’t want to set myself up for such disappointment. I think we’ll just figure out a way to fund it ourselves, and there is a bunch of different options. At the end of the day it’s kinda tweedle-dum or tweedle-dee.
Black Friday offers Dubliners not one, but two metal events to choose from; the Redemption Fest headlined by local heroes Primordial in the Academy, and Protest the Hero headlining a show in the Voodoo lounge.
Metalcore is not a style I’m necessarily big on. Nor am I a fan of the current radio style of rock and metal. There are aspects I definitely like, for instance the metal part of it can be quite good. I also appreciate the more melodic tendencies of the genre
Protest the Hero are the definition of what fun is.

I don’t think that you will be blown away if you simply want to get lost into the bands complexity, because as state earlier, they mesh each genres into a full working clock
