Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 4th June 2013 by Nico Davidson

The Black Dahlia Murder have already released three songs from Everblack; each time to an overwhelmingly positive response from fans. Beginning today, fans can preview a clip from each track on the album at DecibelMagazine.com! Along with audio previews, fans can read descriptions of each song from one of metal’s finest storytellers, Trevor Strnad. To listen and read Strnad‘s thoughts, visit this location.

The Black Dahlia Murder‘s sixth full-length album, Everblack,will be released on 10th June in the UK. The cover art for Everblack was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller with Weta, whose recent projects include: The Hobbit, Avatar, Chronicles of Narnia, and more. Recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside. Trevor Strnad‘s horror-inspired lyrics persist on Everblack, beginning with In Hell is Where She Waits for Me, a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.

Fans can stream Into the Everblack now at this location. Also, there are a variety of limited edition pre-order bundles. Fans can grab Everblack on a double gatefold LP with purple/white marbled vinyl, along with “crime scene bundles.” An evidence pack, which includes toe tags, deceased band member photos, spent shotgun shells, and more can be viewed now.

The Black Dahlia Murder will be touring in support of Everblack all summer long as part of the Van’s Warped Tour.

Catch them in the UK later this year

The Black Dahlia Murder‘s brand new album, Everblack, will be released in less than a month. Following the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Into the Everblack, the band has partnered with Revolver Magazine to stream another song from Everblack. Fans can listen to Rape in Hatred by Vines of Thorn, an ode to one of Trevor Strnad‘s favourite horror movies, Evil Dead, now at this location.

In an article previously published on Bloody-Disgusting.com, Strnad recalled the impact of the movie:

I remember the first time I saw Evil Dead… it was at my friend’s birthday party in 7th grade. It was recommended by the same older sister that had gotten us all into punk and heavy metal music… so we knew we were in for the real deal. The movie scared the unholy 13 year old shit out of us… we were terrified. I remember the possessions really affecting me… the way the people would contort and writhe was disturbing. The possessed had that awful way that they sounded when they spoke and howled… pretty insane as well. The vine rape scene was intense… I love the idea of the forest coming alive… so much so that I wrote a song about it many years later.
