According to MTV.com, Detroit-based extreme metallers THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have set "Nocturnal" as the title of their follow-up to 2005's "Miasma", due later in the year via Metal Blade Records. "It's definitely in the same vein as our older stuff," vocalist Trevor Strnad told MTV.com in January. "Nothing drastically changed. It's just more tasteful, and some of this new stuff will be faster than the last record."THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER will record the new CD with Eric Rachel, who mixed "Miasma". "There's going to be a lot more soloing than we've done previously," Strnad explained to MTV.com. "This record's a bit more European-sounding, I think. More so than we already were, if you can imagine that. The solo stuff has a black metal-ish flavor to it. We messed around with that a little bit previously, but some of the songs have a major DISSECTION kind of feel to them." Lyrically, Strnad said the record — due in the fall — will be "more horror-oriented" than "Miasma". "As far as gore and death and stuff like that goes, I mean, that's all been done — into the ground," he said. "I am just trying to do something like that, but with my own flavor to it. There are still ways to repulse people out there — I just need to figure it all out." THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER is also working on its first DVD release, which Strnad hopes will include footage documenting the making of the band's next record.
