The Black Dahlia Murder – Nocturnal – Review

tbdm200The Black Dahlia Murder

Nocturnal (Metal Blade)
by Scott Hefflon

It’s hard to tell which of the over-hyped metal bands touring relentlessly for your hard-earned dollar are worth checking out, but lemme say unconditionally that The Black Dahlia Murder are worth investigation. Part death metal roar, a bit of thrash spicing, and 666 parts black metal shriek, all full-on metal rampage, this band combines blackened melodies of horror with tuneless duh-metal brutality to make a stew most metalheads will find tasty.
