The Black Dahlia Murder update

The Black Dahlia Murder have written roughly half of their next album. According to the band, "[it] completely destroys anything we've done prior. We are very proud of the new songs, and are sure that our fans will not be disappointed. The direction of the new shit is noticeably heavier and far more intricate than our previous work." The effort will be recorded by Andreas Magnusson in March, then mixed by Eric Rachel at New Jersey's Trax East studios in April. Entitled "Miasma," the new album will hit stores this summer via Metal Blade Records. Meanwhile, the group's reissue of "A Cold Blooded Epitaph" is currently at the pressing plant and should be available in two months. Re-mastered by Scott Hull, the effort will also feature live bonus tracks and a live video. Cover art is being handled by Mark Riddick.

lowercasejay 1/5/2005 11:11:56 PM

a_new_religion 1/5/2005 11:44:07 PM

i hope "noticeably heavier" does not equal "shitty breakdowns".

bigego 1/5/2005 11:52:50 PM

dontmakemesayittwice 1/5/2005 11:58:01 PM

LAHCownsyall 1/6/2005 12:40:58 AM

anybody who likes this band is a fckin nu-jack. go listen to donnybrook

xFUCKxEDGEx 1/6/2005 1:21:35 AM

The new stuff doesnt have breakdowns, its just heavier. Weed is good for you.

phobophile 1/6/2005 2:54:26 AM

with zac on drums, the new stuff BETTER be more insane and heavy than anything they've ever done. he is one of the best drummers i've ever heard, and if he waters down his playing for them, i'm gonna be pissed.

SeveredInTwo 1/6/2005 4:25:49 AM

these guys are n00bs! WWW.MEATHOLES.COM

John_G 1/6/2005 6:57:35 AM

nu-jack....donnybrook....hmmm. Yea, you're stupid.

turn_coat 1/6/2005 8:02:39 AM

by heavier i wouldn't worry about lame mosh parts, unless metal blade is pressuring them to go that direction i would be shocked if they did. bdm used to have mosh parts and cut them out because they wanted to be metal.

gorilla_nuts 1/6/2005 8:54:42 AM

heh, i remember talking with Trevor and he said this shit is gonna blow everyone out of the water. that they cut back on the sweidsh parts but is still BDM so I wouldn't be too worried

34t4v461n4 1/6/2005 9:07:50 AM

bdm is possibly one of the catchiest death metal bands ive heard. while theyre not in my top 10, i enjoy them.

xtroyx 1/6/2005 11:23:48 AM

i love at the gates.

tiger 1/6/2005 12:08:19 PM

eww, i dont like these guys.

crimsoneyes 1/6/2005 12:46:44 PM

you like everytime i die, you wouldn't like these guys.

dutchstep 1/6/2005 1:07:47 PM

gorilla nuts, judging by the new songs they played live, trevor lied to you. the new stuff sounds ever MORE like at the gates. awesome band though.

tonydanza 1/6/2005 1:59:20 PM

_and_ is a fcking idiot... icp? i think ur one of their fans thats gay enough to paint ur face the same as them... oh yeah _and_ is the gayest piece of shit to ever exist. dont ever down black dahlia. bitch!

_and_ 1/6/2005 3:07:39 PM fail

wiggleberry 1/6/2005 3:17:44 PM

Who will they rip off now that they've covered slaughter of the soul?

xRYBREADx 1/6/2005 3:35:00 PM

This band rules and their new material owns. It's way more intricate like they said and no, the breakdowns aren't like Unearth shit, they're fcking metal as fck breakdowns. Like Cryptopsy style shit. I'm really pumped for this.

lxresist 1/6/2005 4:18:11 PM

this band is rad. nice guys. brian . is the loudest funiest dude ever

whoa 1/6/2005 11:38:35 PM

yeah i can't wait for the new album.i heard some of the new songs at the show...i'm guessin it's gonna be pretty brutal

gorilla_nuts 1/7/2005 8:52:46 AM

hopefully metal blade won't dick them over and get them some publicity and support REAL metal on their label instead of giving so much towards Unearth, and As I Lay Dying.

karatexkid 1/7/2005 1:58:14 PM

maybe they just realized that Unhallowed was kind of boring and wanted to go back to sounding like they did on What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse. there were like 2 breakdowns per song on that album

turn_coat 1/7/2005 5:52:06 PM

^^haha and to think stuff they did on "terrible night to have a curse" and "buy us a van" is what got them big.

xpissangelx 1/8/2005 12:49:20 PM

despite what the bullshitters say her i still love them

afternoondelight 1/12/2005 7:56:58 PM

bdm are one of the best bands to ever come out of michigan. i cant wait for the new record.

sunshine_thewerewolf22 2/16/2005 5:49:40 PM

black dahlia murder is awsome live. i can't wait to here the new shit

picturesofme 2/18/2005 7:22:25 PM

ridiculously talented band...just too much blastbeat. Unhallowed had the same rhythm the entire time.
