Having dropped five genre-defining albums since forming in 2001 The Black Dahlia Murder have made it impossible to discuss melodic death metal without the mention of their name. They are hands down (or horns up?) one of the most popular bands in the extreme metal realm, TBDM will close off their touring cycle for their monstrous 2013 release Everblack with an Australian and New Zealand tour this June!
Having last been in Australia for Soundwave 2014 which saw them as part of an epic tour package of top shelf Metal Blade acts including Gwar and Amon Amarth (and also Satyricon) TBDM crashed onto the stage with no fanfare, no intro music & no silly costumes. Just brutal, no nonsense, in your face, crushing death metal.
While delivering the punch to the face fans expect of the band, TBDM also strive to better themselves as vocalist Trevor Strnad explains, “We’ve always tried to create something that’s rooted in classic death metal but at the same time offers something fresh and new, & Everblack is everything that we collectively love about the genre,” The bands total wall of sound has pits raging from the instant they take the stage until they leach every ounce of energy from the crowd and hand it back to them ten fold. Leaving fans decimated and euphoric at the same time. Prepare to be left both decimated and euphoric when The Black Dahlia Murder return this June!
