The Black Dahlia Murder Unhallowed on Limited Edition Colored LP
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
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 Black Dahlia Murder’s debut 2003 release Unhallowed blends the perfect mix of blast beats, heavy guitars and melody. What starts off with a low audio clip of vocalist Trevor reading from a book on cannibalism quickly and quite brutally jumps right into a full force attack on your senses, that does not let up until the album’s end.
What The Black Dahlia Murder does is up the speed and intensity of the style into a gore-soaked whirlwind all their own. They seamlessly twist from destructively fast blast beats to beautiful and dark melodic textures, creating a soundtrack to the horror and insanity surrounding the Black Dahlia legacy. Limited edition colored vinyl reissue in gatefold jacket from Metal Blade Records.
