Good as ATG may be, founders of metal they are not.
unhollowed was a lot more metalcore than miasma, this is a good disc, but i think miasma is their best work.
did you even listen to miasma..?? this is the same deal. a little bit faster. and im 1:07 into "worship.." and im hearing guitar solo. and speaking of solos what are you talking about?? how much variation do you want? id be weirded out if they started ripping some halen solos. plus i dont think any really goes to bdm for solos. (thats what the europeans are for) ill buy this cd regardless. this review blew big ol' balls.
Yes, there is like an eight second solo there. I must have missed it when I scanned through to double-check. My apologies for the technicality. That still doesn't change how the track sounds.
i still like this band. whatever. the songs online sound better than miasma
is it EXTREMELY SOLID, Nick? EXTREMELY SOLID?? NOT JUST SOLID, BUT EXTREMELY SOLID
stoked on this but doubt i'll enjoy it as much as miasma
"Nocturnal" will be out September 19. i wonder. btw awful review. i agree with the score but not the motives.
miasma sucked. unhollowed and everything before was 'da bidness'. anyone that disagrees is wrong.
unhallowed was defintely more metalcore than miasma. you sure you didn't have the two confused?
I actually agree. Miasma was more of a metalcore influence album than Unhallowed. I like what I have heard from this one so far.
f*ck yeah! CASTLEVANIA 2 reference!!! bad ass dudes
Shit I wanted to see cory review this... This generic f*cking bullshit!!
i have BDM's blood-splattered demo...who rules? i do.
at least this review has references to actual music. he's pretty spot-on when referring to these guys as 'accessible death metal.' i really don't dig much DM other than Nile and Suffocation, but i do love these guys.
At the Gates and Dissection are from from being Metal founders. At the Gates paved the way for a genre but that's the extent of that. Miasma was their worst effort and the solos were better in Unhallowed. This album is incredible and for the most part I agree with this review.
why does this band even f*cking bother writing new songs. why not just release the same album over and over again with different cover art. nobody who listens to this band would even notice or care. This band sucks a fat c-ck and don't really deserve any of the praise or success they have garnered over the years. Shit bands like BDM can apparently continue living, recording, touring, etc. off of shitty f*cking music and they don't even seem to realize how much better most bands are than them. Th
I'm really having a hard time understanding why people are labeling BDM as metalcore or even mentioning the two together. Unhallowed was straight up death metal, and Miasma was definitely not metalcore either. Nocturnal is a f*cking amazing album and it features some of the best stuff BDM has put out. But seriously stop relating them to metalcore.
Just waiting for retarded lambgoat reviewers to stop calling bdm melodic death metal. This is garbage, pure commercialistic shit. "Deathcore" is the only viable title for something like this.
so is there breakdowns?? thats the only way I would ever consider labeling anything metalcore or deathcore.. hence the "core." as far as i was concerned, Unhallowed was straight up f*cking metal
BLACK DAHLIA MURDER IS SUCCESSFUL, THAT AIUTOMATICALLY MAKES THEM BAD. I NEED MY METAL TO BE REAL UNHEARD OF DEATH METAL. THE SONGS HAVE TO BE SO HEAVY THAT THEY CAN'T EVEN BE MEMORABLE. I DON'T WANT TO BE ABLE TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN TRACKS. IF YOU CAN READ THEIR LOGO, THEY AIN'T METAL!
That guitarist really needs to learn that scale exercises aren't solos, I'm glad that was mentioned.
The term "accessible" shouldn't fit into any metal vocabulary. Words that come to mind when I hear this record are overproduced, uninspired, and unoriginal. But If I had to use one word to describe both this album, and Nick's music reviews it would be DISMISSIBLE. Bottom Line: Metal is supposed to be abrasive and hard on your senses. It shouldn't be recorded in some $100,000 studio and then polished with pro-tools. It should be recorded in a forest, a dungeon, Charles Manson's house or any p
haha if it's pro tools it's not metal, what a gay
the ongoing argument since this band's inception has been the following: "they suck" vs. "they're awesome." It incites a huge post riot every time the name is mentioned. So, whether you like them or hate them, they're more successful than you.
i used to hate on this band for the reasons that most people are giving in these comments (blah blah blah, commercial blah blah too slick wugghfasdj) but i heard this the other day and was slightly impressed. why the f*ck do people still expect metal to continually reinvent themselves? at the very least, give credit where credit is due: black dahlia murder are "extremely solid" when it comes to writing and performing the style of music they write and perform.
Drewcifer can always be counted on for a good bottom line. And this "metal shouldn't be accessible" argument is bogus. ATG, In Flames, Carcass' Heartwork-- all highly accessible, and yet they are still worshiped. If you're not into BDM, that's cool, but they're very competent at what they do, and most rational people should be able to agree with that.
"BDM will always be in the musical shadows of metal founders At the Gates and Dissection". Are you f*cking kidding me? Write a review when you have a clue what the f*ck you're talking about. At the Gates nor Dissection "found metal". You're a gay for honestly thinking this band is even worth mention, and definately not a true fan of metal if for even a second you claim BDM is competent in any way.
I haven't seen this many whiney gays in the same place at the same time since the time I accidently stumbled into the prescreening of the new harry potter movie. Album is good, I agree with the score. More thrashy than their prior effort, which is nice.
enjoy your unlimited email updates from marinestuds, hotgaytwinks, and rearboys.com, rybread, you f*cking gay.
this cd is t-ts. Nocturnal is the best song on it.

I'm glad someone else got the Castlevania II reference.
Oh come on guys! The Black Dahlia murder are sooo supercalifragialista-core. This cd f*ckin rules. Who cares what cd is better anyway? They all kill! Quit being picky fans. If you think you can do it better then do it. 10/10
Deathcore? Are you retarded? This doesn't have even remotely the same aesthetic and tacked-on bullshit of that genre. Like them or not, BDM are not a group of tight-pantsed emo kids who traded in their At The Gates records for Cannibal Corpse in hopes of riding the next short-lived wave of success. Just because Job For A Cowboy practically mimicked the vocals doesn't mean the bands are related. This really is just melodic death metal, and I'd love to hear an argument against it that actually has
this album sounds like a c-ck getting thrown in a blender. f*ck this.
you're all so f*cking stupid, does anyone on this site listen to music without worrying about what's politically correct according the unwritten book of the metal elitists? honestly i'm so disgusted with the fans of metal. it's a bunch of fat critical virgins and im sure i'll get some sucking die of aids f*cking gay comment for this. real mature.
the best thing about all of this, is that while people sit at their computers and talk shit, tbdm is on tour doing things that most of you would sit at home and jack off about. but hey, sitting at home talking shit is almost as satisfying i'm sure, because at least then you don't actually have to go out into the world and prove you could do any better.
Better than Miasma, Worse than Unhallowed. But still a really solid metal cd.
shit band, shit music, shit albums, shit comments from gays supporting another shit band. Clean your ears out, homof*cks.
terrible band. break up already, noise pollution is at an all time high.
furious lol @ people taking this band seriously
unhollowed is the only album they have worth listening to.
BDM has yet to release an alblum that dissapoints me. this one at very least deserves an 8!!!! unhallowed is most def their best work tho.
Of course their not gonna put out something as good as unhallowed because all of us think of that album as their ticket into metal. Its hard to write music and try to make it more innovative and original without changing your style too much and making all the people that love your music shit on you
Black Dahlia Murder are undoubtedly one of the best metal bands to be recording and performing at this time. Just listen to the music, miasma was a little bit of a let down but Nocturnal sure made up for it. You have to be straight up retarted or just plain ignorent to say the BDM sucks. There talent as individuals is mindblowing along with there talent as a band. All of you haters can just go crawl back to your MTV and keep listening to the bands they tell you to listen to. Also before y
I hear more Carcass, ATG, Entombed than Dissection but whatever. Love these guys! Miasma was a touch weak but songs about murder and vampires are where it's at. right? haha.

too good of a review, the older material is much better.
