Official press release:

As many of you may already know, The Black Dahlia Murder are currently in search of a permanent drummer who can keep up with the band's heavy touring schedule. For all of those interested in trying out, it is important to follow the next steps exactly. Make a recording of yourself playing "Flies" along to a metronome.

Looking for a permanent drummer who can keep with the band's heavy jerk schedule

11/17/2005 5:08:39 PM
it's a decent request... i'd ask for at least 2 more songs though. because maybe some douf could do this, but uses up all his energy. if he can do the 3 songs, then he almost definitly has the stamina to do it.

11/17/2005 5:13:50 PM
I would audition and totally piss them off by playing jazz fusion and then saying "Well you're guitarist looks like a bearded hippie so I assumed this was a jam band"

11/17/2005 5:15:48 PM
NO fckING SHIT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A DRUMMER

11/17/2005 5:36:52 PM
I will go against the lambgoat norm and actually say these guys don't bother me in the least bit. Whether they're jerks or not, I do like some of the songs they put out.

11/17/2005 5:42:20 PM
just use a drum machine, you'd probably be happier.

11/17/2005 5:56:51 PM
you could just play the thing note for note slowly and then speed it up to normal speed and then when they accept you tell them to go fck themselves and shit all over there merch and then run away and hope to not get beatd

11/17/2005 6:31:13 PM
if play on ozzfest then fcking gay

11/17/2005 6:39:55 PM
They seem arrogant, but this is what needs to be done & said in order to get the right guy for the job. Anyways, didn't they just get the guy from Nile. I guess they pissed him off...

*sends mp3 of "louie louie" drum track

11/17/2005 7:13:34 PM
Tony Laureano is only doing a small European tour. My only response to this news item is HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

11/17/2005 7:23:50 PM
just give up

11/17/2005 8:49:42 PM
dude, this music is simple, its just blast beats and fast rolls. any choch off the street can bull this shit off. its the matter of someone wanting to be in an unorigional band that doesnt even do it all that well.

11/17/2005 9:43:53 PM
Actually....you cant record it slower and then speed it up....that fckes up the tone of the drums

11/17/2005 9:54:45 PM
wow they're really serious about this

11/17/2005 10:36:27 PM
Duh.

11/17/2005 10:49:36 PM
I can play "wipeout," think I'll make the cut?

11/17/2005 10:55:12 PM
i hear that mike justain is interested

11/18/2005 12:44:34 AM
mike justain is definitley not capable of playing with them

"Black Dahlia Murder are in search of a drummer who will speak only when spoken to, not have any opinions and has a problem with alcoholism. they are only interested in speaking to people who can follow these directions."

11/18/2005 1:20:57 AM
HAHAHAHAHA THEY WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER DRUMMER!!! I CALLED IT!!! LOSERS!!!! - old drummer

11/18/2005 1:27:01 AM
Diamond Dave heard Keith Moon is looking for a band

11/18/2005 2:59:19 AM
Eat a bag of dicks

11/18/2005 6:12:59 AM
This band is a fcking disgrace. they need to say fck it and start again. blatantly a bunch of money fixated c*nts. c*nts.

11/18/2005 9:03:54 AM
Disgrace to Detroit..and a straight up horrible band all around. They're also horrible people, zach is the only good guy, he's gone. I smoked opium with him before.

11/18/2005 9:35:58 AM
So they want a new drummer, kind of. New in the sense that you'll play what's been written before note-for-note. If only there was some sort of machine that could play drum parts exactly the way you want it to...

11/18/2005 10:13:27 AM
im curious to know how many of you guys who shit talk bDM endlessly actually know the guys in the band? theyre nice dudes indeed, and lets be honest, theyre making better music than 90 percent of the US shit that you all listen to and call metal.

11/18/2005 10:31:52 AM
How come there's never a headline about a real metal band? Every fcking headline is either about some shit ass hardcore band or a fcking nu-metal band trying to claim originality of a sound that ruled in the early 90's! NOW I WILL fckING PUKE!

11/18/2005 10:50:56 AM
these guys are fcking jerks. do they want a drummer or a drum machine? what a bunch of pricks. fck them up thier stupid ashholes. i wish animosity would beat them up instead.

11/18/2005 10:53:57 AM
i actually do know them and i can say that at one time they were cool guys.

11/18/2005 12:28:38 PM
any of you kids that think being able to actually play the exact drum parts that already exist isn't a good test to find the best possible musician for the position, you guys have my permission to continue being morons. -king jerkoff

11/18/2005 2:53:21 PM
DRUMMERS KEEP QUITING BANDS.WTF!!!!!!!!!!!

11/18/2005 3:07:06 PM
faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagasses

11/18/2005 3:12:40 PM
Who cares? Please break up.

11/18/2005 4:14:10 PM
How to speak Black Dahlia Murderese: "play the song as it is on the CD" = "don't be obviously more talented than all of us combined"

11/18/2005 7:20:00 PM
they shouldn't have dissed his fave actor.

11/19/2005 12:35:01 AM
playing drums in this band would be hard. I would much rather audition for the "Orange Peeler" position open. Extra bonus : I have orange peeling triggers

11/19/2005 2:42:32 AM
I don't care what folks say...this new record is sweet. Listen to "Miscarrage" and tell me that doesn't own. Note to Darkest Hour: get out your pen and paper and start taking notes how to do Gothenburg justice.

11/19/2005 6:21:52 AM
Miasma, and Undoing Ruin now that you mention Darkest Hour, are two of the worst albums to be recorded in the history of time ever. Biggest disappointments of '05.

11/19/2005 7:37:00 AM
DARKEST HOUR AND BLACK THE GATES SHOULD SKY DIVE AND LAND IN A POOL OF CANNIBALS! YOU KNOW THOSE LITTLE BOYS WOULD TASTE GREAT TO SOME STINKING ASS, BIG LIPPED, SPEAR CHUKIN TRIBAL MOTHERfckERS IN SOUTH AMERICA!

11/19/2005 11:36:05 AM
apparently everyone knows this band personally or something. i don't know/care if they're jerks, their music is fun and they work their asses off. whoever said this stuff is 'easy' to pull off on drums is a retard.

11/19/2005 8:25:12 PM

11/20/2005 11:28:30 AM
As a matter of fact I do know each member very well and no I don't think I'm cool so fcking BLOW ME!!!!!

11/20/2005 8:46:00 PM
they asked my friend dave to drum for them
