Detroit 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.”Add to My Radar

I think it’s safe to say that all of us in TBDM have attended this tour at various points and have fond memories of this great American punk rock freak show. This time, we shall be the freaks…the sore thumb poking at your eyeball. We are proud to be the fastest, craziest, and most evil band that has ever played Warped Tour…hundreds of bands will enter, one band will leave. Us. We will emerge from the rubble like the giant cockroach men we are. See ya this summer…let’s get warped!!!

Vocalist Trevor Strand had these comments:
“Well kids, enough with all the secrets… it’s about time we in The Black Dahlia Murder clue you fans in and tell all about our recent hush hush bassist situation… I’m sure some of you who have seen us on tour in the last months have grown curious as to who this mystery man bass extraordinaire could be and have wondered what long time bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams could be up to. After months of tip-toeing around it, we’ve decided to break the silence and let you guys know the truth.”

Salutations once again cretins. I sat down with The Black Dahlia Murder‘s guitarist Ryan Knight and drummer Shannon Lucas to get some thoughts on natural disasters, DrawSomething and increasing their audience reach. Their most recent release, Ritual, has gained them a great deal more spotlight and I hoped to uncover what they plan on doing to continue that momentum. I then realized at the show later that night, their loyal fans are what keeps them going.

Here’s yet another deft description of my darling and I’s many death metal date nights. The destination for this evening of ear-splitting enchantment was to be Irving Plaza in New York City, The Black Dahlia Murder, Nile, and Skeletonwitch our marks. Inside was deceptively small, but not overflowing with heads. We managed to navigate quite nicely through the various merch tables, though lacking a fair amount of brutality in the wears. As for the show, we arrived just in time for Skeletonwitch to take the stage thrusting me right into photo mode in front of the Garnette brothers. Bring it on.
A full debrief over the show and some shitty amazing pictures await you on the next page.Add to My Radar

Defy The Tide have been placing themselves in as many circumstances that will spread their music to the masses as they can since forming in 2014. The Pittsburgh, PA melodic metal band has just released a new music video for their current single "Traced In Flames", a meld of metalcore and classic heavy metal elements paired with the warm voice of Carly Simon-Warneke. She almost sounds like a female version of Devil You Know's Howard Jones' famous clean vocals. We ship a duet, please! The cool song comes from their four track EP, Soteria which was produced by John Burke of Vibe Studios and released this past April.
