The Black Dahlia Murder debuts new song

Tuesday, May 17, 2011 9:21 AM PT

Official press release:

The face-melting Detroit quintet, The Black Dahlia Murder (TBDM), has just released the second single from Ritual, the band's fifth full-length album hitting streets June 21st in North America and June 17/20 in Europe. Hosting the exclusive worldwide premiere of the track Conspiring with the Damned is none other than Lambgoat.com. Check out the track below and be sure to leave a comment and spread the word.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments: "It brings us great pleasure to reveal another track from our latest endeavor, Ritual! Conspiring with the Damned is a quick melodic track about bringing a curse into your life by messing with an Ouija board. The lyrics were informed by a series of stories told to me by a friend who claims to have been tormented and robbed of his innocence at a very young age by a demonic force he had been in contact with. This is one of my favorite tracks from the album, and I think it embodies the horrific vibe of Ritual perfectly. Bang your heads!"

Ritual is a collection of 12 tracks that see the band staying true to their sound and style while progressing in both writing and musicianship. Guitarist Ryan Knight has delivered truly searing leads that will without a doubt daze and lay waste the ears of both loyal Black Dahlia diehards and burgeoning fans alike. Music for Ritual was recorded in early 2011 in Detroit, MI with Mark Lewis (Deicide, Unearth) and the band producing with vocals and mixing taking place at Orlando, Florida based studio, Audio Hammer with Jason Suecof (BDM, Beneath the Massacre, Job for a Cowboy, All That Remains). The first single off Ritual, Moonlight Equilibrium, is now live at this location along with several pre-order options.

Catch TBDM live when the band headlines one of the summer's heaviest tours, the Summer Slaughter Tour, with label-mates Whitechapel and Six Feet Under in addition to Darkest Hour, Dying Fetus, and more.

Finally something that's worth listening to again.

5/17/2011 3:26:43 PM
This has got to be BDM's worst release ever. They clearly let Ryan Knight have a bigger writing role. God awful

"Conspiring with the Damned is a quick melodic track about bringing a curse into your life by our horrible deviation from what you used to like about us" -Trevor

Trevor's vocals get better with every album. They're especially sludgy at the end of the song. Cheers to progress.

5/18/2011 12:54:51 AM
the middle of this song reminds me of cephalic carnage.

5/18/2011 9:34:59 AM

5/18/2011 9:50:42 AM
These guys are not death metal, fcking idiots.

5/18/2011 12:46:09 PM
Old_boy 5/18/2011 9:50:42 AM These guys are not death metal, fcking idiots. What are they then? Cause this doesn't sound like deathcore or metalcore to me lolidunnoman

5/18/2011 5:05:17 PM
I'm loving this track. His low-end vocals have definitely gone more guttural and it sounds BEAST. Stoked for the full release.

5/18/2011 8:02:38 PM
this is horrible and repetative of every song on their last two albums

5/20/2011 9:27:36 AM
this band leads the pack for all that is fcking terrible about metal today. some of the most generic crap out there (and ALWAYS HAS BEEN) the vocals are hyper annoying. this is a thread full of mallcore metal heads or something. SHIT fckING METAL

5/20/2011 11:05:34 AM
^You're hyper gay

5/23/2011 5:52:11 PM

5/25/2011 5:28:35 PM
this band is genius and does exactly wat they love and are quite successful. haters can choke a choad cuz you prolly havent accomplished anything close to wat they have. they have the talent to become legends
