"MK Ondergrond" (meaning "Underground" in Afrikaans) conducted an interview with guitarist Alex Wade of Knoxville, Tennessee death metallers WHITECHAPEL at this year's Wacken Open Air festival, which was held August 1-3 in Wacken, Germany. You can now watch the chat below."MK Ondergrond" (Facebook page) is South Africa's first dedicated underground music variety show, hosted by a macabre crew of animated characters, featuring band interviews, video reviews, gig guides and the best in local and international underground music videos. The remastered version of WHITECHAPEL's debut album, "The Somatic Defilment", came out in April. The band placed the CD in the capable hands of Audiohammer Studios producer Mark Lewis (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, DEVILDRIVER) for a complete remix, along with a remaster by Alan Douches. The results are staggering and give "The Somatic Defilement" a modern luster up to the standards of the band's most recent recordings. WHITECHAPEL is currently on the road with GWAR, IRON REAGAN and A BAND OF ORCS. The self-titled album from WHITECHAPEL was released in June 2012 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was engineered and mixed by Mark Lewis, who also handled production duties alongside the band. The artwork was created by Aaron Marsh of Forefathers Group with art direction provided by WHITECHAPEL.
