Black Dahlia Murder lose two members

Wednesday, November 02, 2005 7:17 PM PT

As has been rumored as of late, The Black Dahlia Murder drummer Zach Gibson and bassist David Lock are no longer with the group. Black Dahlia Murder had the following to say about the move:

"Both are gone cause they couldn't actually play our material. It was sad to have to make such a decision withDave since he's been with us for quite some time, we wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavors."

For his part, Gibson has issued the following statement:

"Yes, the rumors are true, I am no longer the drummer for The Black Dahlia Murder. I was asked to leave the band after our last show on the BTBAM/Cephalic Carnage/Into The Moat tour 10/28/05 in Detroit, Michigan, our home...I was quitting anyways and they knew it, they just wanted to save face and beat me to the punch."

Meanwhile, Gibson has apparently rejoined his former group, Gutrot.

Update: at the request of a particular party, we've decided to remove the bulk of Gibson's statement

2nd post.. wow.. someone is pissed

11/2/2005 7:25:11 PM
man, I really love this band too. Thats some crazy stuff right there. They never seemed like that type of band to me.

11/2/2005 7:25:29 PM
wah wah wah....i don't like jesus.

11/2/2005 7:28:54 PM
man thats fcking nutz!!! scene drama hahaha

11/2/2005 7:30:15 PM
Miasma blew. If that was your doing the band will be better without you. Arogant prick.

11/2/2005 7:30:54 PM
I know this man will go off and do great things, he is an amazing drummer, one of my favorite drummers.

11/2/2005 7:38:51 PM
I couldn't care less about everyone involved, but I always appreciate when band members who get kicked out have the balls to come out and say how they really feel instead of some bullshit "creative differences" explanation.

11/2/2005 7:39:01 PM
And I guarantee every shitty metalcore band trying to cash in these days has at least one "Brian" in the group.

11/2/2005 7:39:17 PM
haha that's awesome. go zack gibson former drummer of black dahlia at the gates

11/2/2005 7:44:42 PM
Yep, I told that nigga what was up. BUT YOU DIDN'T BELIEVE ME. WHYYYYYYY DIDN'T YOU BELIEVE ME!!

11/2/2005 7:44:47 PM

11/2/2005 7:46:10 PM
maybe they will break up now and let a more original band take their place in metal. regurgitated wanna be swedish bullshit. you are from michigan.

11/2/2005 7:46:35 PM
Is Brian the fat vegan singer or the guy with the hippie beard?

11/2/2005 7:46:45 PM
This sucks. I like BDM, and if they lose one more member, they might as well break up. Gibson is either a very arrogant prick or Brian has seriously made his life a living hell. Either way, good luck to them.

11/2/2005 7:50:30 PM
i know BDM they are good guys, this dude is full of shit, and if he wants to take credit for a band sinking into mediocrity since his arrival, good for him.

11/2/2005 7:55:25 PM
Gutrot fcking rules! fck BDM!!!

11/2/2005 7:57:00 PM
they say the bassist is one step up from a roadie. i say hey, im gonna fck you softly.

11/2/2005 8:02:47 PM
portslob, You're wrong. I used to be in the fcking band. Don't say you KNOW them just because you've hung out backstage and sucked their dcks a few times. Derr.

11/2/2005 8:06:33 PM
wow, i cant believe a myspace blog post is being reported on as news.

11/2/2005 8:12:18 PM
I agree about there being a "Brian" in every band. My old band had a "Brian" in it and it sounds kinda like the same shit. Sucks for him.

11/2/2005 8:26:57 PM
i don't care.

11/2/2005 8:30:50 PM
BDM fcking sucks

11/2/2005 8:30:53 PM
so who's the other lost member?

11/2/2005 8:37:01 PM
you missed the part where this guy went off on the entire band. lambgoat pulled it and thats where the stuf about the bassist was.

11/2/2005 8:43:39 PM
I still say the best way to get a drummer out of your band is to kill him in a van accident.

11/2/2005 8:51:50 PM
demoradiodotorg needs to have some fcking decensy when talking about dead people like bayside's drummer. i liked a cold blooded epitaph and i liked this band so this sucks. hopefully they can get their shit together soon.

11/2/2005 8:59:16 PM
i hope that at the gates reunion tour happens. and i am tired of bdm. break up .

11/2/2005 9:12:01 PM
CENSORSHIP! Bad Democrat Webmassah.

11/2/2005 9:47:51 PM

11/2/2005 10:07:55 PM

11/2/2005 10:30:20 PM
Anyone know where I can find his real statement on myspace?

11/2/2005 10:33:00 PM

11/3/2005 8:30:36 AM
Brian had nothing to do with the truncated statement.

11/3/2005 8:48:03 AM
gutrot fcking rules. BDM are a bunch of buttfcking gays

11/3/2005 8:54:48 AM
bloodbath if you were in the band then you know me, and you know i've done more than hang out with you guys.. we fcking toured with you dipshit.

11/3/2005 9:04:48 AM
ahh who cares. not like they were exciting to see live any ways. unless you like just standing around with your thumb up your ass

11/3/2005 10:24:37 AM
Gibson's comments were linked on here yesterday and they were awesome. bdm seem like jerks. rock n roll.

11/3/2005 10:50:05 AM
"Both are gone cause they couldn't actually play our material." Horseshit. It's third-rate At The Gates worship, not fcking Atheist. Get over yourselves, gays.

11/3/2005 10:54:43 AM
couldn't play the material? FULL OF SHIT! they wouldn't bend over and be your powerslave maybe. once again you are not from sweden you michigan rednecks.

11/3/2005 11:01:38 AM
really bad news

11/3/2005 11:33:57 AM
that myspace link is set to private...anyone have a link to Zach's comments, I gotta see that....

11/3/2005 11:37:03 AM

11/3/2005 11:43:23 AM
i just spent a month basically living with these people. every present and now past BDM member is truly a great person, regardless of their musical endeavors. i wish all five of them luck on all their goals.

11/3/2005 12:31:00 PM
what doesnt make snese is i remember talking to Trevor they picked up Zach and he was like yea he rips hes so fast and so good blah blah blah..now this

11/3/2005 1:44:01 PM
lambgoat = pssywhipped

11/3/2005 1:56:58 PM
Did anyone else notice how poorly written the full statement was?

11/3/2005 2:13:28 PM
anyone that is starting some e-drama on lambgoat about this shit...seriously needs a head check. and that dude who said he was in bdm...what a gay, doesn't even remember touring with the mighty slorb. suck c-ck for more c-ck gay.

11/3/2005 4:10:11 PM
I guess it wasn't important enough to remember.

11/3/2005 4:10:22 PM
bdm is just annoying to listen to

11/3/2005 6:11:59 PM
cory wasnt a great drummer and this new guy wasnt even as good as him. this band smokes to much weed and should just quit. how many times does the bass player have to quit and rejoin?

11/3/2005 6:22:48 PM
the drummer wasn't that good, the old one was better.

11/3/2005 8:08:01 PM
Black Dahlia Murder think a lot of themselves. In an interview for a bigger metal mag (I don't remember which one) they were talking about how they were the only good metal band in Michigan. Sure, MI sucks for metal, but thats so arrogant.

11/3/2005 10:16:29 PM
I love all the references to Sweden, At The Gates, etc. I can't believe you fcks still believe that US bands can't play metal. Go blow more European c-cks; I'll stick with my countrymen's music, jerks.

11/3/2005 11:57:21 PM
www.theprp.com has the full story

11/4/2005 4:01:43 AM
now all we need is for remembering never to break up

11/4/2005 8:58:03 PM
Tough break

11/5/2005 10:37:21 PM
This band sucks ass the only decent part was the drummer

11/6/2005 3:09:16 AM
well atleast he joined gutrot.. he finally realized that The Black Dahlia Murder sucked nuthaidz
