The Black Dahlia Murder Video Clip On The Gaunlet

In honor of thrashing death anti-heroes THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, Metal Blade Records has selected a handful of websites to premier exclusive clips taken from the band's upcoming DVD, Majesty, out this May. Our friends over at Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles were cool enough to pick up one of the clips for their site so make sure to head over to bravewords.com and check out the next exclusive clip starting today. Stay tuned to MetalBlade.com for details on more exclusive clips, which will be going up between now and May 12th and don't forget to catch the band live this summer on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival.

Pre-order deals on Majesty DVD including a bundle package that comes with a BDM shirt.

Two exclusive pre-orders have been set up for Majesty so head over to the Metal Blade Records Online Store to get your copy of The Black Dahlia Murder's first ever DVD Majesty (2 Discs in Digipak) at the special low price of $17.99. The price will go up once the DVD is released (5/12) so make sure to grab yours now. Also available is a DVD/t-shirt package that includes a Black Dahlia Majesty t-shirt and the 2disc DVD in Digipak for the low pre-street date price of $26.99. The Black Dahlia Murder Majesty widget includes an exclusive clip taken from the DVD, links to the pre-order, and will be updated with links to the handful of sites we have given exclusive sneak peak clips to.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments, “The Black Dahlia Murder DVD entitled Majesty is finally finished and ready to be unleashed on the world. Diehard fans will recognize that the title has been plucked from the chorus of Nocturnal. It was filmed and edited by our good friend/drinking partner Robbie Tassaro, whom we have worked with in the past for the filming of our ‘What A Horrible Night To Have A Curse' video. Robbie is a hilarious man in himself, and probably the only person we could trust to really capture the essence of the band. Doing a DVD was something we were very apprehensive about... doing video stuff is always a risk when you can't afford the luxuries that the MTV darlings can... I mean look at the majority of death metal videos on you tube... the comments are all people laughing how cheesy they are. For Christ's sake, look at our video for Funeral Thirst! That's ghetto metal fabulous. All of our videos, good and bad, will be featured on the second disc of the dvd, along with a shows worth of intense live footage, captured from various locations throughout our Summer Slaughter tour and our romp in support of Children Of Bodom. The live footage is unbelievable looking... it absolutely blew me away the first time I watched. I think he really nailed the energetic atmosphere of our concerts... it makes me want to stage dive myself. The main disc is chock full with over two hours of backstage footage and will give our fans a deserved look into the BDM machine. See your favorite thrashers drink 'til they puke, eat til they puke, smoke weed 'til they puke, etc. The Pantera DVD was our model to strive for, as it's the only metal DVD out there that warrants repeated viewings. Now that I have seen it a few times, I have had the semi painful realization that I am an alcoholic. I'll keep you posted on that as it develops.
Calling all thrashers! Behold the Majesty!”

Vocalist Alex Erian comments, "We're done writing and the new shit is packed with brutality. Can't wait to play these songs live! As always, our longtime buddy Yannick St-Amand will produce the whole thing and we got Zeuss and Alan Douches to take care of the mixing and mastering, so the result should sound monstrous! Our boy Felix Rancourt, the evil mastermind behind all our imagery, promised us his sickest album artwork to date." More...

Carcass Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Reunited U.K. melo-death/gore-grind legends, CARCASS, will return to the United States this March for the “Exhumed to Consume II” tour. The follow up to last years highly successful “Exhume to Consume” tour will feature SUICIDE SILENCE, SAMAEL, ARSIS and PSYCROPTIC plus a few special guests on select dates. Vocalist/bassist and all around optimistic person Jeff Walker commented:

"Well, I'm pleased to announce that CARCASS is gonna settle it's unresolved scores in the U.S.! There was some slight whimpers of discontent that we didn't hit some cities such as Chicago and Denver last time round - places that were always hot spots of enthusiasm for us. So we're coming back in March to finish off our unsettled business! We seemed to have had a profound influence on your economy and gas prices have gotten cheaper haha! That's doesn't mean we’re not gonna come through and provide some value for your buck with some old (and new) school friends and comrades such as SUFFOCATION, SAMAEL, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EXODUS, SUICIDE SILENCE etc. - check out locally as for who is on the bill where! And hey, I couldn't think of anywhere better to be on my 40th birthday than the Sunshine Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico! We promise this will be the last time we darken your shores (I said that with my fingers crossed behind my back)!"

"On the eve of our December tour with friends MISERY INDEX and SOILENT GREEN, we in The Black Dahlia Murder are faced with a heartbreaking dilemma: John K(guitars) has abruptly left the fold and refuses to accompany us on the tour.

Children Of Bodom Talk About Tour

Children Of Bodom is currently on the road in North America with The Black Dahlia Murder and Between The Buried And Me. Children Of Bodom bassist Henkka Seppälä has issued the following update from the road:

"West Coast is done, so is the plains, and we are now here in the Midwest. San Fran was one of the best I think. Great venue, great crowd, especially right in front of me... Then the warmth ended. Went to Portland and Seattle. So, cooler weather, but good crowds again! Then refreshing dip in the Salt Lake. This venue was new to us, and on the shore of the lake, but it was surprising that there was so many people. Wow, we do have great package here! Then good times in Denver, and crazy sweaty show in Kansas City, and the infamous salsa party after the show. Many blackouts, but we survived. To Illinois. The Pop's, to Minnesota, where the expected happened. The first ones to get sick. No surprise, me, like always and Jaska too. First thing in the morning, hospital, couple of hours there to find out what's wrong. Ten hard medication. So the Myth show was really hard for us. We had good times but physically it was really difficult. House of Blues Chicago is always good, and the sick ones were not so sick any more, but still really hard to pull off a Children Of Bodom show. We try our best. And tonight Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Let's see how the Rave is treating us! Hope nobody's getting sick anymore..."

Children Of Bodom's new album, "Blooddrunk", landed at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart after selling over 19,000 copies in its first week of release.

Henkka Seppälä and Children Of Bodom guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho have launched a clothing line by the name of Wildchild Industries. According to a posting on the Children Of Bodom fan site Scythes-Of-Bodom.com, "many ideas for their designs come from Alexi himself, hence the name of the company. Even though Alexi and Henkka are involved with Wildchild Industries and it goes by Alexi's stage name, their products are not Children Of Bodom merchandise or strictly related to the band in other ways."

Children Of Bodom Bassist Posts Tour Report

Children Of Bodom bassist Henkka Seppälä has posted the following update from the road:

"The first headlining tour in the States since 2006. We are excited!!! Our first time in Baltimore was really cool. Of course we didn't expect anything but there were people and the crowd was great!! Thanks for that. McNulty didn't show up tho...

"And the show in Masquerade in Atlanta was one of the hottest we have experienced ever. Really. It was difficult for us, but I bet it was difficult for the crowd too. But we pulled it off somehow and it was sweaty and intense. Just the way I like it!

"Now we are heading to Texas, hope there are no hurricanes coming our way. Looking forward to play the new venue in Dallas, and also to hang out more with the Black Dahlia and Between guys later on, not enough parties yet, but I m sure we'll fix that!"

Testament Announces Headlining US Tour Dates

TESTAMENT has announced a string of headlining dates this October with Louisiana metallers Soilent Green. The tour includes TESTAMENT’s appearance at the Hammerstein Ballroom on October 9 in New York City, where they will be direct support to headliners Children of Bodom; also special guests, The Black Dahlia Murder and Between The Buried and Me.

Guitarist Eric Peterson checked in to discuss the Metal Masters tour and the band’s upcoming US headlining dates: "We just finished the Metal Masters tour, and it was a great tour to be on. Unfortunately, it went by too quick. We got to know everyone towards the end, and it started to feel like family. It’s too bad it had to end so soon, especially after getting to know everyone. Hopefully, the Metal Masters will continue next year in Europe."

"In the meantime, we’re heading to Japan and Australia. The last time we played there in ’06, we promised our fans we’d have a new record out the next time we came around. We kept our promise and we’re excited to get back there and play it for them."

"Once we get back, we’ll be headlining some east coast shows, including a one-off with Children of Bodom at the infamous Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. We’ll have full production, so we’re excited to put on our whole show. This tour is going to focus on secondary markets, so we don’t spoil anything for next year. We plan on having a big year and putting a big package together, wink wink."

Upcoming Testament tour dates are as follows: More...
