History and background

The recording session for A New Era of Corruption ran from December 27, 2009, to March 2010 with Jason Suecof being the chosen producer. It was announced that the album's recording was completely finished on March 31, 2010. Guitarist Alex Wade said, "I think this record truly represents where we are as musicians at this point in our career. A New Era of Corruption is the heaviest and most aggressive material we have written to date." In the same interview, Wade confirmed the release of the album would be on June 8, 2010.

The name of the album is derived from a passage of the lyrics in their song "Possession" which appeared on their previous album, This Is Exile. The album makes A New Era of Corruption the first Whitechapel album that does not have a title track. Chino Moreno of Deftones and Vincent Bennett of The Acacia Strain make guest appearances on the album, Moreno in the song "Reprogrammed to Hate" and Bennett in "Murder Sermon".

Lyrical themes

The concepts and lyrical themes of A New Era of Corruption travel into new boundaries and details where previous Whitechapel albums did not. With The Somatic Defilement being a narrative of Jack the Ripper and This Is Exile containing political themes, A New Era of Corruption is the first Whitechapel release that is not a concept album. It generally focuses on negative themes, for example "Devolver" is written within the concept of the devolution in society and how it has crafted "violent and hateful" individuals, while "Breeding Violence" was written about the increasing corruption in society during the post-9/11 times, and "Animus" is about the death of vocalist Phillip Bozeman's mother.
