Album Review

Unhallowed, the debut full-length from Detroit, MI, quintet the Black Dahlia Murder is a well-executed slice of melodic death/black metal in the tradition of Swedish masters Dissection and At the Gates. They've clearly studied those bands, as is reflected in the racing, dual-harmonized guitar riffs that form the foundation of this album. The vocals are a little different, though, consisting of a high-pitched shriek that's complemented by a lower, more standard death metal growl. Also of note is the drumming, which is pretty swift, even by this genre's standards. This band has a lot of youthful energy and chops and has the potential to do something great.

Brilliant Album

The Black Dahlia Murder. One of my favourite bands of all time. And their first album is to thank for that. From the moment I heard Funeral Thirst, I was hooked. The drumming, the guitars and the vocals are all amazing! The way in which the vocals modulate between the superb high pitch screams, low, guttural growl and the occasional mixing with the 'death rasp' is great. Their is also a huge variety here, with there being incredibly fast paced, unrelenting songs such as When the Last Grave Has Emptied, to slower more dark songs such as Contagion. There really isn't a single bad song here, even the intro, with it's rather choice selection of readings (but then again, this is TBDM) has an amazing chuggy part too it, really leading into the album well.

I highly recommend this.
