Still riding high on waves of acclaim for their rabidly-received DVD spectacle Majesty, Michigans unstoppable sons of molten melodic death metal The Black Dahlia Murder triumphantly bring you their fourth thrashing opus Deflorate. Deflorate boasts Black Dahlias brand of seamlessly-mixed Swedish influenced blackened thrash and pounding American death metal muscle, and sees one of metals most outstanding underground outfits at the peak of its unmitigated musical brutality. Were more confident than ever, declares vocalist Trevor Strnad of Deflorate.
The new album sees the songwriting expertise of band leader and rhythm guitarist Brian Eschbach at its most polished and punishing, exponentially complimented by collaboration with both bass savant Ryan Bart Williams and newcomer guitarist Ryan Knight (ex-Arsis), whose blistering leads will dazzle and decimate the ears of both loyal Black Dahlia diehards and burgeoning fans alike. Brian is the backbone of the band, professes Trevor. To have the other band members bring such amazing music to the table has only brought the band up even higher with Deflorate. Add the dynamic demon-shrieks and corpse-growls of Strnad, and the warlike percussion of rising extreme drumming star Shannon Lucas, and you have a brilliant and bloodthirsty band of brothers ready to cut a swath through the metal scene with a fearsome new offering.
