Album Review

Though being an American death metal band that has entrenched itself on the Billboard charts is an impressive enough feat in and of itself, perhaps the most impressive trick the Black Dahlia Murder have pulled off is that they have accomplished this while actually getting better. On Everblack, their furious sixth album, they continue to refine their hybrid sound, combining the melody and technicality of melodic death metal with the savage brutality of their homeland's domestic death metal offerings. Add a touch of thrash's relentlessness and the listener is presented with a thrilling and visceral sound that's capable of being cathartic without sacrificing musicianship, avoiding cheap tricks like endless strings of breakdowns. Though metal has become an increasingly codified genre over the years, Everblack shows the heights a band can reach by simply having the confidence to forge its own path, following influences and inspirations wherever they may lead without worrying about whether or not death metal is being created "the right way." In a way, the Black Dahlia Murder have figured out how to create a new sound not by innovation, but invitation, welcoming bits and pieces from all over the metal world to make something exciting and exhilarating, which, aside from being a huge boon for metal fans, is the most hopeful thing to be said about an album containing a song titled "Raped in Hatred by Vines of Thorn."

Customer Reviews

let's be honest.

c'mon, we already know we're giving this 5 stars.


This is a good album but is not great. Sure the production is better but song writing is lacking creativity. Seems like more accessible music which is good for new fans but no progression for these guys. They're all great musicians and are in need of a new song writing formula. Maybe it's just me but I was expecting something special and just got the same old recycled metal.

A very great accomplishment from an already accomplished band

I am not going to lie, this beats out Nocturnal for me. That is amazing considering how great Nocturnal is. My favorite tracks in order are 10, 1, 4, 3, and 6. Oh, and for those of you who are skeptical about Shannon leaving, just give Every Rope a Noose a listen. Yea, it's crazy. Whatever you are thinking, just stop and buy this album because you WILL NOT regret it.

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.
