The Black Dahlia Murder Unveil ‘Everblack’ Album Plans + New Song ‘Into the Everblack’
Michigan death metal act the Black Dahlia Murder have just revealed some exciting info for their sixth full-length, ‘Everblack.’ Not only has the band shared the album’s artwork and June release date, but the record’s debut single, ‘Into the Everblack,’ as well.
The Black Dahlia Murder brought their transition from metalcore into melodic death metal to the next level in 2011 after releasing their fifth album, ‘Ritual.’ The band received both fan and critical acclaim for ‘Ritual,’ while snagging the No. 31 spot, their highest charting position to date, on Billboard’s Top 200 list. Fans have been bloodthirsty for another Black Dahlia Murder album ever since, and ‘Everblack’ will actually contain the band’s first-ever song about the murder of ‘The Black Dahlia’ herself, Elizabeth Short.
“The opening track is the first actual song we’ve done about the Black Dahlia,” says vocalist Trevor Strnad. “This one is for the fans … they’ve been asking for this to happen for a long time. The story takes place at the Elizabeth Short’s rain drenched funeral, where her killer [is] in attendance … just one of the many macabre tales woven into the fabric of ‘Everblack.’ Subterranean flesh-farming vampires, vine rape, Jeffery Dahmer, amputation… it’s all here! With this sixth slab of sickness I tried my best to honor the band’s legacy and write lyrics that will keep the legions of horror fiends perspiring with fear.”
The Black Dahlia Murder have released the song ‘Into the Everblack’ via Metal Blade Records, and surprise, surprise … it’s a pummeling rocker. Mixing masters Jason Seucof and Ryan Williams, along with the mastering duties of Alan Douches, gave the Black Dahlia Murder one of their heaviest sounding pieces of music yet.
