They based their name off of a famous London serial killer's body dumping site.
See Jack the Ripper
Their first album "The Somatic Defilement" contains lyrical content dealing solely with Death, Murder, Crime, and Rape.
Where as their second album "This is Exile" deals with varried subjects.
People commonly believe Whitechapel to be deathmetal, but due to its heavy use of Breakdowns and lower use of blastbeats it is classified as deathcore instead.
Man 2: Ewww aren't all their songs about Necrophila?
Man 1: Why no, their second album is much more sophisticated!
"Eyes are glaring red with a conscious set to kill,
Nostrils flared and the eyebrows parallel,
THRIVING ON THE CHAOS AND THE SUFFERING
I HAVE CAUSED ON YOU ALL,
A dispute of man and diabolical BEASTS!!!!!!!!!!"
Aren't those lyrics great?
Lets Whitechapel Someone to the Ground and sit on him.
