Title: “The Saw Is The Law” (Single)
Label: Metal Blade Records
Release Date: 2//26/2014
A few days ago, fans of the band Whitechapel got their first aural taste of what is coming on their soon to be released new album on Metal Blade Records. The full body of work is called “Our Endless War” but this is not the title track and is instead a little Metalcore ditty called “The Saw Is The Law”. As we aim deeper into 2014, I’m hoping to do more reviews of unveiled singles here on the site (there is a WordPress conversion on my plate for some time this year so stay tuned). Let’s discuss the song.
I love the groove begins on this one. It’s a little slower than I expected the band to be offering up but the pace does quicken up after a few measures and its very powerful when it all comes down to it. Singer Phil Bozeman reminded me a little of Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God with the vocals presented and with that band being on top of their game it’s very possible that some influence has come through. The tune is quite intense in its heaviness and I think if you are already a fan of Whitechapel that you will be impressed while those new fans should have no trouble getting an introduction to their brand of Metal crush. Download it legally via the link below and prepare thine self for “Our Endless War” in late April.
