THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's 'Deflorate' Cracks U.S. Top 50

"Deflorate", the new album from Michigan's THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, 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 via Metal Blade Records, "Deflorate" boasts THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's brand of seamlessly mixed Swedish influenced blackened thrash and pounding American death metal muscle, and sees one of metal's most outstanding underground outfits at the peak of its unmitigated musical brutality.

"We're more confident than ever," declares vocalist Trevor Strnad of "Deflorate". "I think, as a band, we really found our footing on 'Nocturnal'. This time, we've taken this beast to the next level."

"Deflorate" was produced by THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, Mark Lewis (DEICIDE) 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."

"Deflorate" track listing:

01. Black Valor
02. Necropolis
03. A Selection Unnatural
04. Denounced, Disgraced
05. Christ Deformed
06. Death Panorama
07. Throne Of Lunacy
08. Eyes Of Thousand
09. That Which Erodes The Most Tender
10. I Will Return

"Necropolis", the new video from THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Robbie Tassaro, who had previously worked with the band on the "Majesty" DVD.

Commented Strnad: "We filmed this [video] at the Garden Bowl in Detroit, Michigan early in the morning… We want to thank everyone that was involved for getting drunk at 10 a.m. Bear witness to the horror of 1,000 gutter balls! PARTY ON, WAYNE!"
