The Black Dahlia Murder Deflorate on Colored LP
Having dropped six genre-defining albums, The Black Dahlia Murder have made it impossible to discuss melodic death metal without mention of their name. The venomous, yet melodic death metal outfit named after the brutal unsolved slaying of wannabe actress and temptress Elizabeth Short draws influence from forefathers such as At The Gates, Dissection and Carcass.
Heavily influenced by Swedish metal and infused with the very brutal sounds of Florida death metal scene, the band signed to Metal Blade Records in 2003 and made a name for itself with the first three records - Unhallowed (2003), Miasma (2005) and Nocturnal (2007). In 2009 Black Dahlia issued Deflorate, their fourth thrashing epic and first with new guitarist Ryan Knight.
Co-produced by the band with Mark Lewis and Jason Suecof, the 10-song set unleashed the singles "A Selection Unnatural" and "Necropolis," and debuted in the top 50 on the Billboard 200. Colored vinyl reissue in gatefold jacket from Metal Blade Records.
