Official press release:

Thrashing death anti-heroes The Black Dahlia Murder are set to release their first ever DVD, Majesty, this May. This side splitting peek into the hard working band's humor laced brand of daily life will have you smelling the funk of the van from coast to coast and keep you coming back for more. Stay tuned to the band's MySpace page or Metal Blade Record's site/MySpace page as we will be releasing teaser clips taken from the DVD up through the release of Majesty.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments, "The Black Dahlia Murder DVD entitled Majesty is finally finished and ready to be unleashed on the world. Diehard fans will recognize that the title has been plucked from the chorus of Nocturnal. It was filmed and edited by our good friend/drinking partner Robbie Tassaro, whom we have worked with in the past for the filming of our 'What A Horrible Night To Have A Curse' video. Robbie is a hilarious man in himself, and probably the only person we could trust to really capture the essence of the band. Doing a DVD was something we were very apprehensive about... doing video stuff is always a risk when you can't afford the luxuries that the MTV darlings can... I mean look at the majority of death metal videos on you tube... the comments are all people laughing how cheesy they are. For Christ's sake, look at our video for Funeral Thirst! That's ghetto metal fabulous. All of our videos, good and bad, will be featured on the second disc of the dvd, along with a shows worth of intense live footage, captured from various locations throughout our Summer Slaughter tour and our romp in support of Children Of Bodom. The live footage is unbelievable looking... it absolutely blew me away the first time I watched. I think he really nailed the energetic atmosphere of our concerts... it makes me want to stage dive myself. The main disc is chock full with over two hours of backstage footage and will give our fans a deserved look into the BDM machine. See your favorite thrashers drink 'til they puke, eat til they puke, smoke weed 'til they puke, etc. The Pantera DVD was our model to strive for, as it's the only metal DVD out there that warrants repeated viewings. Now that I have seen it a few times, I have had the semi painful realization that I am an alcoholic. I'll keep you posted on that as it develops. Calling all thrashers! Behold the Majesty!"
