1985-1995: The Golden Age of Death Metal

Death should be credited with creating death metal, at least the old school style we recognize now, as they birthed the infamous Tampa, Florida sound. Bands such as Autopsy and Obituary—two of the forerunners—would not exist without Death. Death is not the true father of death metal, though. That distinction goes to Possessed. The California Bay Area group not only played a style of brutal, vicious metal, with loads of Satanic imagery, they also coined the term “death metal” on the “Seven Churches” album.

Around 1985, albums similar to “Slowly We Rot” (Obituary) and “Mental Funeral” (Autopsy) simply did not exist. Thrash was the fasted, craziest music around. Of course Possessed has already been mentioned, but the influence of Slayer, who obviously influenced Possessed, can not be under recognized. Where Possessed was different was they used a rougher production. Dark Angel, whose drummer, Gene Hoglan, would go on to be one of the most heralded drummers in the metal biz, certainly showed a good dose of Slayer in their sound. In the beginning, Slayer was nothing more than a faster, nefarious, more solo-oriented Venom protégé. More...

The Black Dahlia Murder Posts New Video

Ready to kick off a USA headlining tour this April, The Black Dahlia Murder is now launching a new video for the track "Threat Level No. 3" taken from recently released album "Abysmal."

Written, directed, and animated by Adam Avilla, the "Threat Level No. 3" video can be viewed below. Adam Avilla comments:

"It isn't often that a band that you have listened to for fifteen years approaches you and wants you to draw four minutes of sheer madness for their new record. It's insane. Such a great honor. And the song rips!"

The Black Dahlia Murder's Trevor Strnad (vocals) had this to say: "Adam has done an amazing job of bringing the fiendish character behind 'Threat Level No. 3' to life in all his despicable glory. This is by far the best video we've ever brought forth and the best part of all...You don't have to look at our ugly faces once!" More...

The Black Dahlia Murder Announces Headline Tour

After releasing new album "Abysmal" last year and headlining both part I and part II of the massive IndieMerch Tour, The Black Dahlia Murder has announced another headlining trek.

With Fallujah and Disentomb as support, the band plans to play first full-length "Unhallowed" (2003) in its entirety during the run, performing at intimate venues across the USA that haven't seen The Black Dahlia Murder since that debut was released.

Trevor Strnad (vocals) comments: "We are very excited to unleash this absolutely crushing line-up upon you all and to play the much requested 'Unhallowed' album in its entirety. The songs are sounding better than ever before, and we can't wait for you to feast your ears on our debut album as it was meant to be heard. We will also be playing some bangers from our new album, 'Abysmal', and the rest of the catalog...Come out and bring your friends!"

Brandon Ellis will join The Black Dahlia Murder on the road as the band's touring guitarist and replacement for Ryan Knight, who amicably parted ways with the group.

In regards to his departure, Ryan Knight comments: "After nearly 7 years with The Black Dahlia Murder, I feel the time has come for me to step down and focus on other aspects of my life. The decision to leave was very difficult, yet necessary I feel for me to ultimately be happy and keep moving forward. I feel very lucky to have had the best band-mates/crew (past and present) to traverse the world, guzzle beers, and bring the rock with every night...Thank you guys <3, I'd like to give a HUGE thank you to all our fans for being so cool to me over the years, and all the hardworking people over at Metal Blade Records for their support, and general badassery. In the meantime, I'll still be teaching guitar, working on new music, and just getting pretty domestic in general. Thanks again!" More...

The Black Dahlia Murder will cross the U.S. starting 11/27 to headline the IndieMerch Tour with Goatwhore, Iron Reagan, Entheos, and Artificial Brain. All dates are available below.

New album "Abysmal" is a vicious slab of unrelenting aggression showcasing TBDM at its very finest with a meticulous, pin-point precise rhythmic assault mixed with ferocious speed and dynamic hooks.

The band re-enlisted the services of renowned producer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) and former bass player Ryan Williams, who also produced "Everblack," with the sole intent to get away from the overt sonic sterility affecting far too many contemporary metal albums. More...
