Black Dahlia Murder


Metal Blade 442

Released on July 1, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Hailing from Detroit, MI this five-piece band does not compromise the integrity of their music for anyone. Heavily influenced by Swedish metal and infused with the very brutal sounds of Florida death metal scene, The Black Dahlia Murder's debut release Unhallowed blends the perfect mix of blast beats, heavy guitars and melody. What starts off with a low audio clip of vocalist Trevor reading from a book on cannibalism quickly and quite brutally jumps right into a full force attack on your senses, that does not let up until the album's end.

This venomous, yet melodic death metal outfit named after the brutal unsolved slaying of wannabe actress and temptress Elizabeth Short draws influence from forefathers such as At The Gates, Dissection and Carcass. What The Black Dahlia Murder does is up the speed and intensity of the style into a gore-soaked whirlwind all their own. They seamlessly twist from destructively fast blast beats to beautiful and dark melodic textures, creating a soundtrack to the horror and insanity surrounding the Black Dahlia legacy.

The only thing better than hearing this band on their new full-length release is to catch them drawing blood live. The stage presence of this band completely transcends the hair swaying posing that this genre has become accustomed to, reintroducing an unbridled energy long absent from the current death metal scene. The Black Dahlia Murder is a band that is not to be missed, and once witnessed cannot be denied.

This band was better when they were called At The Gates. Don't get me wrong, I like BDM (and ATG) and they put on a great live show, but it is a little annoying when one band sounds almost exactly like another band. One difference between the two bands however is that BDM, at least on this album, has way worse guitar solos. I don't know what it is, they're plenty fast, they're in key, they just suck a little bit. Also, this gets pretty repetitive after a while- most of the songs have approximately the same beat, same key, same vocals.

When i took this cd out of the shrink wrapping and inserted it into my boombox...what i heard was an approaching evil voice and incoherent chanting...from there i heard the sweetest intro ive heard in a while...unhallowed leads rite into funeral thirst which is a sick song. this cd is fuckin brutal from front to back..the vocals are sick as fuck with the high pitch low pitch thing and i dont know if bdm are necessarily death metal but its pretty fuckin close..if u are a fan of metalcore or metal..pick this shit up now

The Black Dahlia Murder are insane. I bought this cd a while back and I didn't like this type of music so I should it. But then I started listening to alot of metal and I realized how fuckin amazing these guys are. This album is brilliant. I bought one of there demo cds off of ebay and it kick ass too. If you like A7X, As I Lay Dying, Himsa, Atreyu, God Forbid, At The Gates, Bleeding Through, Odd Project, It Dies Today, The Agony Scene, All That Remains, Shadows Fall, Vehemence, Dead To Fall, Cattle Decapitation, Mastodon, Still Remains, Nevea Tears, Summers End, I Killed The Prom Queen, and Winter Solstice, then buy this right now. Solo after solo, and technical guitar wizardly. Amazing.

Wait! Hold on! This album just blew my mind and I need time to recover. My hype of this band definitely didn't kill the enjoyment of this album. The guitars just go at hyper speed and it just blows me away. Definitely too much metal for one hand!

Oh man! This CD is fucking pro, not to mention that these are hometown guys. It fucking blew me right out of the water. I wanted to just go around slamming peoples heads into walls while listening to it, and even after the CD was over, i still wanted to kick someones ass. Exactly how music like this should be. If it makes you want to go commit violently heinous acts, you know its gotta rule some major ass. Definitely worth your money.
