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.

Customer Reviews

Unbelievable

This album tore my eardrums apart. Absolutley amazing. This album seems to have a much darker feel than that of Miasma or Unhallowed. The new drummer Shannon does an awesome job and Trevorss vocals are as raw as ever. The solos have also improved on this album quite a bit. They seem to put in a bit more effort into each individual solo to make it stand apart from the rest. Overall amazing album. Definitely worth ten bucks.

TBDM's best yet

It's really good, more focused than Miasma or Unhallowed and, in my opinion, better vocals and definently better, tighter drumming. These tunes will get stuck in your head, in a good way. My instant reaction to this CD is I want to punch someone or something in the face and destroy things. Get it, now.

Great Album!!

Every single song on this Album is great. The lyrics are amazing, and of course trevor delivers them in a brutally awesome way. This album is more melodic and technical than their past albums. Bottom line: BDM is one of the best death metal bands out there, and they continue to impress everyone on the scene.

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.
