What do Slash lookalikes, a goat, some dude in a gorilla costume, an Abe Lincoln-lookin’ motherfucker playin’ dice, and The Black Dahlia Murder in tuxedos all have in common?
Don’t think about it too hard, because the answer is obviously that they don’t have any damn thing at all in common. Except maybe that they’re all part of a collective BDM brainstorm sesh. That’s one of the things I love most about these dudes, actually. You can totally get down with how technically proficient, and legitimately hard, the music is. But on the flip-side, Black Dahlia Murder plays up their irreverence; something I’ve always preeshed in the whatevercore scene. Just because you make beatdown music, doesn’t mean you can’t laugh about it.
Black Dahlia Murder just released their latest album, Everblack about a week and a half ago, and you can pick it up over at Metal Blade- CrimeZone20xx
