Ripping it Up

Friday, Sep 23: And Tearing it Down


Whitechapel, a deathcore band whose name is really an obscurantist allusion to the place where many of the murders committed by Jack the Ripper took place, has a gig in Albuquerque on Friday, Sept. 23. The Knoxville, Tenn. Sextet has been on a bloody and brooding musical march since the release of 2006's The Somatic Defilement. Their latest release, Mark of the Blade includes growlingly classic tuneage such as "The "Void," "Tormented" and "Venomous". With three guitarists completing the current line-up, listeners are in for one hell of a ride through the desolation and determination of a band that some have compared to Cannibal Corpse and Slipknot. Admission is $17 for those 13+. Showtime is at 8:30pm. Launchpad • Fri Sep 23 • 8:30pm • $17 • 13+ • View on Alibi calendar
