“Melody” and “death metal” don’t always go hand in hand, but a Detroit band with track record of success will bring its brand of melodic death metal to South Lake Tahoe next week.
The Black Dahlia Murder formed in 2001. Since then, four of the band’s albums have reached the Billboard top 200. The band’s sixth album, “Everblack,” was released by Metal Blade Records in June and has reached number 32 on the charts.
“Having dropped five genre-defining albums The Black Dahlia Murder have made it impossible to discuss melodic death metal without mention of their name,” according to the band’s Metal Blade biography. “With Everblack, they once again demand the respect of peers and followers alike.
“We’ve always tried to create something that’s rooted in classic death metal but at the same time offers something fresh and new, and Everblack is everything that we collectively love about the genre,” said vocalist Trevor Strnad in the biography. “To us, the challenge is always in wanting to make something better than what has come before, and something that will really excite the fans. But I think with all those albums behind us we have become the band fans can depend on, and we couldn’t be more proud of what we have achieved with this new record.”
