The band released their new EP Grind ‘Em All on Black Friday and you can listen to the whole thing right now. The EP features covers of Left For Dead, Sedition and Gyga. All of them are amazing while flowing through a Black Dahlia filter. Check out the EP below. YEEEE-AH! Continue reading

According to the reliable bros over at Metalsucks, former drummer of The Black Dahlia Murder, Shannon Lucas, is currently working on putting together a new grind project featuring Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) on vocals and Shane Embury (Napalm Death) on bass. Less notably the group features former Wartorn guitarist, Adam Faris. The group was originally conceived by Lucas prior to joining TBDM, but was put on the side line due to the groups busy schedule.
Apparently the guitar parts have been finished for quite some time and the band is just waiting for Embury to lay down some bass riffs before the ball really gets rolling. As of now, the group remains nameless but will be entering the studio in April to record vocals and drums for their first release. We will keep you updated as info is released.

The Black Dahlia Murder have released a new music video for the first single off of their most recent record Ritual which was released last year on Metal Blade Records.

Oh yeah, there is a werewolf. Check out the video below and be sure to pick up Ritual now.

Gaza is one of the most vile and powerful heavy bands that has ever graced my ears. If you are unaware of Gaza’s existence, shame on you! Their last album, He Is Never Coming Back was met with critical acclaim from music critics and heavy music fans alike. I recently got a hold of drummer, Casey Hansen to answer some questions about Gaza’s upcoming album, their past work, and others.
