Published Oct 05, 2017Two years on from delivering their Abysmal LP (which we thought was anything but), the Black Dahlia Murder have returned with Nightbringers, which you can hear in its entirety right now.
Nine tracks in length, Nightbringers arrives today through Metal Blade and stands as the group's eighth studio album.
"Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me," vocalist Trevor Strnad said in a statement. "We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld — such as marriage and monogamy — came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that."
He continued: "It's 'being-the-villain music,' because we're the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it's for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and 'Kings of the Nightworld' are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle."
