I’m so STOKED for this album! The Black Dahlia Murder revealed last month that they were done recording their new record, and now when know when it will be in our ears! The Black Dahlia Murder will be releasing “Abysmal” on September 18th via Metal Blade Records! What can we expect? Trevor Strnad said this: “The new album, “Abysmal,” is true to The Black Dahlia Murder formula, but further down the evolutionary path we began with our Ritual release. It has bigger, more dynamic and developed songs. It sees the band in a darker, faster and more melancholic place than anything we’ve done to date. It is an album wrought emotion on a scale that we haven’t reached with our previous attempts. It’s dripping with urgency, and an undeniable sincere life and death purpose. It has moments of triumph and moments of utter abandon and defeat. It runs the gamut. If you can’t sense the message of despair in a song like ‘Receipt’ or the title track ‘Abysmal,’ than you are an unfeeling statue of a person. You speed freaks can also thank the ungodly contribution of our young skinsman Alan Cassidy, as the new album sees us approaching maniacal speeds unseen before in the TBDM catalog.”
That’s enough to get me excited! I’ve said it a million times by now, but in my opinion, The Black Dahlia Murder is one of the most underrated bands in metal, so anytime they bring up new music, I AM READY! Check out the AMAZING “Abysmal” cover artwork below, and start the countdown! We are 100 days away from The Black Dahlia Murder‘s new album! STOKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
