Album Review

As far as rock music goes, Detroit will always be primarily associated for spawning such high-energy proto-punk bands as the Stooges and the MC5. In other words, extreme metal isn't exactly one of the area's chief music exports. But rather unexpectedly, Detroit has given birth to one of the more intense metal acts of the early 21st century, the Black Dahlia Murder, who manage to up the ante even further with their fifth release overall, 2007's Nocturnal. While death metal serves as the group's musical foundation, the Black Dahlia Murder is certainly one of the more melodic bands of the genre — and manage to do so without forfeiting any of their metallic muscle. Blastbeats, death metal riffs, and vocals that alternate between growled and screamed (the latter a tactic which quickly became the standard of the genre), Nocturnal shows the group refining and focusing their style/sound even further, especially on such delightful little ditties as "Everything Went Black" and "I Worship Only What You Bleed." Nocturnal certainly delivers on the promise of their 2005 breakthrough, Miasma — no abrupt "losing of the plot" here, folks.

Amazing Album

Hadnt really heard much Black Dahlia Murder before I brought this album but I'm glad I did end up buying it. Anyone who likes bands such as All shall perish will love this album. If you're not up for buying the album or still not sure, listen to Nocturnal, I worship only what you bleed and Deathmask Divine. That will change you're mind for sure.

Melodic Death Metal from Detroit!?

AWESOME!! favourite song is deathmask divine, if you play guitar or drums or vocals this album will have so much more weight with you, its tchniccly polished to perfection, and even if you dont know which end to blow on any instrument, its still well worth a listen if you like bands such as Bring me the horizon (yes i said it, get over it) at the gates, dimmu borgir, job for a cowboy (another good band you HAVE to check out) stuff like that.

hell yea

another amazin melodic album buy it !

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Detroit's the Black Dahlia Murder, named for the infamous 1947 slaying of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short, aka the Black Dahlia, actually sounds like they should live in Scandinavia, whence originates much of the frenetic brand of death and black metal that inspires them. Formed in January 2001, the Black Dahlia Murder followed their six-song What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse demo with the four-track A Cold-Blooded Epitaph EP, which was released on their own Lovelost Records.
