New Music: The Black Dahlia Murder – “Into The Everblack”

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 3:00 PM (PST)

The-Black-Dahlia-Murder-Everblack-SmallDetroit melodic death metal outfit The Black Dahlia Murder have released the first single from their upcoming album Everblack.  The record will be the band’s sixth studio release and is due out this coming June 11, 2013 on Metal Blade Records.  The album art was painted by artist Nick Keller, with recording being completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, while mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside.

The first single is called “Into The Everblack” and can be found right here.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad recently had the following to say about Everblack’s lyrical concepts:

“The opening track is the first actual song we’ve done about the Black Dahlia. This one is for the fans… they’ve been asking for this to happen for a long time. The story takes place at the Elizabeth Short’s rain drenched funeral, where her killer in attendance… just one of the many macabre tales woven into the fabric of Everblack. Subterranean flesh-farming vampires, vine rape, Jeffery Dahmer, amputation… it’s all here! With this sixth slab of sickness I tried my best to honor the band’s legacy and write lyrics that will keep the legions of horror fiends perspiring with fear.”

dark-tranquility-construct-coverSwedish melodic death metal band Dark Tranquillity will be releasing their 10th full-length album, entitled Construct, on May 27th in Europe and on May 28th in North America via Century Media. The band has revealed the album’s cover artwork and tracklisting. Aside from the cover art, the album will also feature artwork throughout by the band’s own guitarist, Niklas Sundin.

The band had this to say about the new album:

“The selected few people that so far have been granted the privilege of hearing the full album are uniformingly convinced that ‘Construct’ is the strongest and most exciting D.T. album in a long time, and who are we to disagree? While still bearing the unmistakable mark of the dark tranquillity, the record is probably our most different and diverse offering since 1999’s ‘Projector’. For now, we’re pleased to share the track-list, trailer and sleeve design with you, but the first musical preview will appear in the near future.”
