It’s been two decades since this extreme metal band from Michigan released its debut 'Unhallowed'. The record contained ten chunks of melodic death metal seasoned with a truckload of gripping hardcore riffs. Over time, bands mature and become household names and The Black Dahlia Murder has developed into a genre mainstay. The Black Dahlia Murder have never leaned back or rested on their laurels. Quite the opposite, in fact. As one of the best releases of their illustrious career, 2017’s ‘Nightbringers’ illustrated once again just how high they’ve raised the bar. Consistent excellence is probably the best way to describe their track record. On ‘Verminous’ (2020) they one-upped themselves yet again, setting a whole new standard for their future output. Two years ago lightning struck with the untimely death of charismatic frontman Trevor Strnad. Guitarist Brian Eschbach decided to take over vocal duties and keep the band going, with Ryan Knight rejoining as rhythm guitarist. We can’t wait to see this new incarnation live. (#GMM24)
