Michigan's unstoppable sons of molten melodic death metal THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have completed the songwriting process for their fifth album, tentatively due later in the year via Metal Blade Records. Vocalist Trevor Strnad told the Gun Shy Assassin web site, "Shit's going great… sounding killer so far. I just sang on my last two demo songs today… I'm finally done writing this bastard of an album."
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's forthcoming CD will once again be produced by Mark Lewis (TRIVIUM, BURY YOUR DEAD, DEICIDE), who also worked on 2009's "Deflorate". Lewis wrote on his Facebook page last week that the new THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER material "is ragin', boys and girls."
"Deflorate" sold around 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 43 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on September 15, 2009 via Metal Blade, the CD was produced by THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, Mark Lewis and Jason Suecof (BENEATH THE MASSACRE, JOB FOR A COWBOY), with mixing duties handled by Suecof. According to a press release, "Deflorate" is "a multifaceted death trip: beautiful, evil, and morbidly addicting. THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's fourth thrashing epic sees no punch pulled, no gravestone unturned, no soul uncorrupted."
