The face-melting Detroit quintet has made a career out of being unpredictable -- as well as unhinged, unclassifiable and unrepentant, all in the best possible ways. But with RITUAL, its fifth full-length album, the extreme metal troupe found fertile territory in the wide world of those prescribed practices that would seem verboten to a band that's always marched to the double-time beat of its own drummer.
The Black Dahlia Murder has upped their speed and intensity into a whirlwind all their own. They seeminglessly twist from destructively fast blast beats to beautiful and dark melodic textures, giving a soundtrack to the horror and insanity surrounding The Black Dahlia legacy. Their fans have been among the most loyal on the planet; a corps that's grown since the group released its first demo In 2001 and built a large loyal following with hard touring and key bookings before signing with Metal Blade records.
