The Black Dahlia Murder is without a doubt a Top 5 band for me. I honestly don’t know when it happened. When I started listening to them I never considered them to be that special, they were head and shoulders over the melodeath glut that was being puked out in the early 2000s, but a Top 5 favorite band? I didn’t see that coming. Still, they always had workmanlike consistency and solid writing that I admired. With time, however, their albums have stuck to my playlist. When I was bored with new music, I would throw on Miasma or Nocturnal; good, solid, addictive songs with great playing and intensity. Albums like Miasma and Unhallowed were albums I loved, but it was around Ritual that these Detroit natives hit the next level going from great to excellent. Adding Ryan Knight—who unfortunately left the band prior to the recording of Nightbringers—was an incredible addition to the band. With their game elevated, they crafted the platonic ideal of modern melodic death metal: fast with sick riffs, amazing solos and refined compositions that even TBDM hadn’t exhibited earlier in their career.

The operative question, then, was “What will Nightbringers be?” At first blush, it reminded me of Miasma more than any record since. While it thankfully doesn’t share the production, it is a short, brutish affair, packed with Alan Cassidy’s ball-crushing blasts, Trevor Strnad’s trademark alternating screams and growls, and more trem-picked melodic leads from Eschbach and new kid Brandon Ellis than you can shake a an inverted cross at. There’s a relentless feel to Nightbringers which differentiates it from its predecessors. The whole thing clocks in at a remarkably speedy 33 minutes, which is a perfect ADHD-sized bite for an Angry Metal Guy with a lot on his mind and a dwindling stash of Adderrall.

As is their way, The Black Dahlia Murder drops riff after riff after riff upon the listener. Nightbringers features some of the sharpest riffs in the band’s career. The opening trems on “As Good as Dead” rip fiercely, while closer “The Lonely Deceased” features an Amon Amarth opening so sharp that it will make the Viking warriors check their war chest to see if they were raided by a raging horde of Detroitians (Detroitites? Detroitans? Detroitistas?1). Hat-tipping Miasma, the album’s epic closer “The Lonely Dead” even features a borderline black metal blast that’s hard not to love.

It’s cool to hear the kind of intensity that you don’t expect of a band on its 8th release. While Nightbringers walks some familiar paths—the sound is definitely classic The Black Dahlia Murder—it’s surprisingly fresh. Be it “King of the Nightworlds,” which features a medieval jig-worthy melody that I’ve been whistling for weeks, or the opener “Widowmaker” which evokes the band’s earliest albums in composition and performance, Nightbringers is an intense, brutal ride that demonstrates what pros these guys are. This album is tight, fast, blasty and polished. But because of the perfect balance sharp riffs, gonzo intensity, and just enough dynamics to keep listeners on their toes, the pieces just seem to fall into place.

The Black Dahlia Murder 2017

The album’s biggest problem is that after Everblack and RitualNightbringers has a sound that feels a bit passé. While no one performs this sound better than The Black Dahlia Murder, their foregoing records saw them challenging their compositions and playing in ways that I think went underrated by the metal scene. Knight’s loss looms over the album, particularly on solos where his genuine virtuosity is irreplaceable. While Brandon Ellis is a great player who is more than capable of shredding, his solos are not the pure, outside-the-box art that I have come to associate with TBDM’s most recent work. This isn’t an indictment of Nightbringers; this material is first-class melodeath and a worthy addition to the band’s discography. I just can’t help but feel the tiniest bit letdown.

Nightbringers makes me miss the ‘90s: when men were men and melodic death metal was heavy. This album reasserts once again that melodic death metal isn’t dead, and that it can barrel along at breakneck speeds, be heavy, and engaging as hell. If you love melodic death—or melodic black metal—this album is certainly one of the best you’re going to get this year. Nightbringers is chock full of awesome songs and sick riffs that will affirm your faith in one of metal’s premier bands once again.

By: Dr. Wvrm

Halloween, 2008. A pre-med Wvrm’s first show. Children of Bodom, in prime form. Obituary, aging but still legends. Between the Buried & Me, just emerging as juggernauts. Any of them could have stolen the show. The band that did, however, did so not because of their high-energy performance or Scooby Gang costumes, not because their frontman sported thick-rimmed specks just like mine, but because, in 30 minutes, they dismantled what I thought modern melodic death metal should be and showed me what it could be: not simply a slick keyboard delivery system or somber sadboy outfit, but something gruesome, despicable, and, best of all, fun. The following decade would witness The Black Dahlia Murder summit the American metal scene, but that night, their panache and pit-hound mentality would matter more than the bone-rattling riffs and exploratory songcraft that would become their legacy. Nightbringers is a testament to that legacy, a hit in a catalog of hits and TBDM‘s best work since Nocturnal.

The Black Dahlia Murder 2017

The bulk of TBDM‘s work – Nightbringers included –  fits neatly under the same sonic guidelines: a suffocating blanket of non-stop riffs, melodic enough to be memorable but never without death metal swagger; an unflagging drum performance that only adds to the crushing atmosphere; Trevor Strnad’s star-maker vocals, conversely dynamic and disgusting. Opener “Widowmaker” hacks and slashes its way through a song that fits neatly under that umbrella. Strnad’s performance easily bounces between a wonderful balance of pugnacious shrieks and gruesome gutturals. Brian Eschbach and new lead man Brandon Ellis (Arsis) build their riffs around an heightened sense of urgency, even compared to previous efforts. Alan Cassidy beats the skins like a pro wrestler who wandered into his UFC octagon. On its surface, Nightbringers could easily be chalked up as yet another solid odd-year eruption from melodeath’s Old Faithful. That would be a mistake.

Since Nocturnal, The Black Dahlia Murder have seemingly made a point to continuously expand their abilities. The Michiganders sank time and effort into ensuring their technicality and breadth of influences never stagnated. The result produced albums imbued with individual identity despite ostensibly similar offerings. Nightbringers is no different, but what sets it apart here is its execution. Eschbach and Ellis clearly brought their A-game, as each riff seems stronger than the last. Ripper “Matriarch” throws things back to Nocturnal2 with its breakneck pace and single-worthy riffs. The pulsing rhythm of “Nightbringers” melts faces from its first bar, paired perfectly with technical gang-shouter “Jars.” The monstrous deathcore drop of “Catacomb Hecatomb” might scuffle under less capable supervision, but Strnad’s gruesome pukes and the band’s willingness sell the moment turn it into a true backbreaker. The composition is lithe and nearly immaculate, excising filler and diversion from 33 minutes of metal as trim and focused as they come. The result is the rare release that not only leaves me wanting more, but compels me to flip it back on immediately.

Those concerned after the departure of fret maestro Ryan Knight (ex-Arsis) need not worry: Brandon Ellis proves himself as a more than capable replacement. His solos eschew wankery without sacrificing technicality, slotting in so well that they often feel like extensions of the core direction. His riffs extend the Arsis influence further than Knight’s ever did, ensuring that the album’s frantic nature never becomes too dominant. Ellis’ Arsis background is never as apparent as on the hefty grooves of “As Good as Dead,” but “Kings of the Nightworld” deftly incorporates it into riff and solo both. Strnad’s preternatural ability to flow in and out of verses with just the right cadence and vocal texture elevates the latter track to highlight status. Yes, Strnad’s vocals, like Max Lavelle’s bass, could stand to be clearer in the mix. Yes, the strength of “lengthy” five-minute finale “The Lonely Deceased” wanes compared to the rest of the album. But it’s hard to quibble with a result this strong so deep into an already accomplished career.

As TBDM have gained fans, so too have they gained momentum. However, after Abysmal‘s short-of-great showing, I wondered if that sucking sound was Angry Metal Guy‘s Law of Diminishing Recordings™, vacuuming up all joy and wonder in the world. Instead, we get a next level performance from a band that was already a cut above. Nightbringers is the culmination of a decade’s worth of experience and innovation, the climax of a career that continually defies even the loftiest of expectations. The year end conversation was already crowded. The Black Dahlia Murder just blew the whole damn thing up.

Show 2 footnotes

  1. Whatever, it’s only two guys who are from Detroit anymore anyway…
  2. Speaking of which, the return of Necrolord for the single color album art is long overdue.
  • Looks like it’s BOGO review day at AMG HQ.

  • Jaime VG

    They are masters at what the do, massive respect, but I just get tired of the sound, ends up sounding too familiar. I would still rate this album 4.5 or even 5, it is spotless.

  • Kronos

    Great reviews to both. It’s been said before, but it bears repeating: Arsis is basically just TBDM’s jv team.
    I don’t really love this album (sounds too much like Arsis) but the last one was a serious grower and I’m hoping this is as well.

    • AgonMcDuck

      Tbh A Celebration of Guilt > everything TBDM has done, but over discographies I find TBDM’s work is better.

  • welyyt

    What’s up AMG, nice to see you around these parts.

    I liked this, but it feels like they need to shake things up again. Still, Kings of the Nightworld has that amazing chorus and the main riff in Nightbringers is catchy as hell.

  • The Akerstache

    A picture of TBDM should always be next the phrase “perfecting one’s sound.” They’ve effectively made the same album several times over now, but instead of stagnating they’re instead getting better and better. While Abysmal wasn’t quite as good as Everblack and Ritual, it was still very good, and now they’ve just gone and outdone themselves again. Fantastic album.

    • surreptitious pounders

      Abysmal was best since Nocturnal.

  • Hammersmith

    As someone who would put Celebration of Guilt in their top 10 all-time records, the additional Arsis in this record helps to elevate it. The loss of Ryan Knight was saddening, but Ellis steps up in a big way here. I still might put Unhallowed (still their best) or Nocturnal over Nightbringers, but early listens have been overwhelmingly positive.

    • AgonMcDuck

      A Celebration of Guilt is a fucking gem.

      • Hammersmith

        They’ve been hit or miss since that record, but that album is stellar.

        • AgonMcDuck

          Same sentiments. In fact, the first song I heard of theirs is “Forced to Rock” (cringeworthy video and all) and I almost ignored them entirely because of it. Thank goodness I didn’t. “Maddening Disdain” is one of my favorite songs, ever.

      • Grymm

        “Maddening Disdain” forever!

        • AgonMcDuck


    • The Unicorn

      I miss Arsis badly.

    • Matt McMadden

      The Face of My Innocence might just be my favorite metal song, ever.

      • Wayne Willis

        I concur

  • herrschobel

    oioi..the band with the coolest name in town is back….great reviews…i will now immerse myself into this album and do a review for myself…
    shalom brethren of ze dark music cvlt !

  • Levly

    The record is great of course, all TBDM are, but it’s a clear step down from the epic streak they were on since Ritual. Ryan Knight is dearly missed indeed. I’m sure it will grow on me but for now, I’m definitely more in AMG’s camp.

  • ARBrasch

    This album is pure fucking malice…and I love it. I’m definitely hearing the Arsis vibes that other people seem to hear which is refreshing given Arsis’ track record of late. I can’t really rank this album compared to their other albums just yet, but there isn’t a bit of fat to this album. This is pretty much the epitome of melodic death metal.

  • dduuurrrr dddduuuurrrr


    • Nukenado

      “One upvote for throwback trolling.”

      • Juan Manuel Pinto Guerra

        Make that two.

    • Tofu muncher

      Are they really though? Seriously I’m confused. I’ve never listened to their previous work properly cause they are said to be that: metalcore, which is a no no for me. I’ve listened to The Nightbringers in full and I like it quite a lot, though I like my music has a crescendo building to a climax, which theirs is not evident imho. Damn labeling has me missed some good music.

      • Diego Molero

        It’s definitely not metalcore, for real. Go listen to the entire discography of this guys. Nocturnal is my personal favorite.

  • Absolomb

    The Black Dahlia Murdered all the other Melodeath releases from this year.

    • Nukenado

      Eh, too broad.
      I wouldn’t put TBDM anywhere close to a “melodeath” release like Æther Realm.
      I personally think TBDM is almost thrash-death… pretty different from the majority pf melodeath.

      • Dr. Wvrm

        I think that’s why TBDM are so profoundly interesting. They’re not the slick, poppy outfit we’re used to. They draw from the style in how well-constructed they are, but they keep a lot of that original death metal feel, the way early melodeath bands did.

        • Nukenado

          Yep. And another thing… Regarding their “metalcore” label, Trevor does use plenty of screams and tunes his guitar in a different way from most melodeath bands. The songs are also furiously fast paced, especially his delivery. I’m a total modern thrash/metalcore fan so it one of the highlights for me. Same thing happened to Trials (though Dr. Fisting probably won’t be too happy with me associating Trials with metalcore.)
          TL;DR: TBDM’s sound is modern and a bit thrashy/metalcorey. I like it.

      • Morbidly Obese Angel

        I would make the argument that this is what melo-death is supposed to sound like, in that it’s death metal, but with melody. Rather than melodic metal with death metal style vocals which seems to be what most melo-death has become nowadays

        • Nukenado

          Good point, but I have to say that melodeath has always been a pretty diverse pie. I feel that TBDM has a thrashy influence rather than pure death metal with modern tuned guitars.
          Melodeath often seeps into other genres. Melodic doom-death is a thing, melodic folk-death so too… Even melodic tech death is apparently a thing.
          Just like death metal itself, melodeath has many faces. I personally find TBDM to also be more than just “death metal with clean guitars”.

          • This kind of (melodic) DEATH metal is not so rare in melo-death history.

            THE FORSAKEN – Manifest of Hate
            Vehemence – God Was Created
            Miseration – Your Demons – Their Angels
            Anasarca – Godmachine
            Centinex – Hellbrigade
            GOD DETHRONED – The Grand Grimoire
            Hatesphere – Bloodred Hatred
            Diabolical – A Thousand Deaths
            Crown of Thorns – Eternal Death
            Dismember – Death Metal

          • Nukenado

            Hah, never said they were super unique. There’s some familiar names here along with some new ones, so I’ll check some of these out.

          • ElephantsMarching

            Nice list, thanks! I have some listening to do…

          • Master of Muppets

            This list is brutiful.

  • Bas

    Great reviews. Both somehow made me appreciate or understand the embedded track more, even though i am not a big fan of this type of melodic death metal.

  • Nukenado

    A double gush.
    Totally fine with this, as TBDM is on the same level as Vektor for me.

    • Eli Valcik

      hmmm, I’m not really a melo death guy so I would disagree but. But Objectively you’re probably right.

      • Nukenado

        I appreciate and respect TBDM, although some of their lyrics go really too fucking far for me to listen.
        Vektor is the opposite (of your opinion) for me; never could get into thrash except for Vektor (and Vhol) which I think objectively can be compared to greats like TBDM.

        • Eli Valcik

          So we pretty much just have opposite options on the matter, that’s kinda funny. Vektor for me has always been one of those bands on a whole other level, who combines black, thrash and prog and it somehow sounds fan fuckingtastic even though I find most prog bands to suck. Also the arcing natalie of terminal redux just blew me away with its story telling ablility. Ive just been born a black metal fan and I find joy in its near perfected offsets.

          • Nukenado

            My favorite genre is still metalcore (!), and so I find joy in melodeath and other fast paced affairs. Thrash never was my thing due to almost every band playing rethrash, but Vektor just fucking won me over. I don’t play it everyday, but I still think it’s a thrash masterpiece.
            In that way I guess we’re similar. Also BM is great. I’ve been getting so much good shit from you and Drew.

          • Eli Valcik

            Thanks. I get into other generas by listening to genera’s with similar aspects and since BM and Thrash is greatly intertwined I find enjoyment in both.

          • Nukenado

            Yep. Both angry, pissed off and slightly melodic. I find annoyance in that there aren’t nearly as much innovators in thrash though.

          • Master of Muppets

            Mr V here is a pretty reliable and constant purveyor of excellent tuneage. He, Thatguy, Reese Burns and that Dalton fella consistently increase my library with nothing but goodness.
            Many of the writers here, too, but that’s what they get paid the big bucks for, so that went without saying.

          • Nukenado

            You fucking guys have all the cool shit (that’s not reviewed). I’m probably not the only one who’s benefited from your guys’ dialogue.

          • John

            Agreed on Eli being a great source of music. Saw his picture on a bandcamp page and started following him. Some good shit.

          • Master of Muppets

            I do the same with all of you little shi-
            I do the same with all of you readers. I love seeing what everyone else finds, after enough solid discoveries from any one person I can start blind buying from their collection and add some killer shit that I might not have found on my own to my library. Internetting done right, yo.

          • Name’s Dalton

            Why thank you.

    • Gage

      Calling these guys on the same level as Vektor is an insult to Vektor.

      • Nukenado


  • JeremyZero

    I have never been able to get into this band, and I don’t know why. But to be fair, I don’t think I’ve given them a dedicated, sit down listen. Maybe I’ll give this one a go.

    • Nick Maestas

      Give Ritual a listen too

  • Jae_Aytch

    Is it just me or is does the 33 minute play time not feel like 33 minutes? This album is over before you know it and begs to be played again.

    • AgonMcDuck

      33 minutes is actually rather brief for an album these days.

      • Jae_Aytch

        Reminds me of some of the albums that go on to have “classic” added to their name.

  • Anarchist

    Ritual was one of my first death metal albums, and even after experiencing their whole discography it’s still heads and shoulders my favourite. I’ll have to see how this stacks up. I expect that I’ll miss those incredible guitar solos though.

    • I think this is definitely their best since Ritual…

  • RuySan

    Any song half as good as “A vulgar picture?”. That may be the best death metal song of the 00s

    • surreptitious pounders

      Not even close to anything off Miasma, but not bad for an 8th album.

  • AndySynn

    Damn, Dr. Wvrm and I seem to be sharing a brain here, what with all the Arsis references, the “this is like a sequel to Nocturnal” vibes, and the that whole “the last song is a little, teeny-tiny bit of a let-down” thing.

    AMG… less so.

    • Dr. Wvrm

      Great minds have objectively better taste ;)

      • AndySynn

        We do.

        And by “we” I mean “I”.

        • Dr. Wvrm

          The royal I?

          • AndySynn

            No, the imperial “I”.

      • [not a Dr]

        Trve: great minds taste better.

  • Angelus

    From start to finish, this album kills it! Amazing release. It’s so melodeath that Lindberg, Stanne, and Frieden claimed copyrights for the Gothenburg Sound.

  • Riffs are the best, but compositions are too simple, lacking drama as melodic death metal. 5.0 (riffs and arrangement) – 1.5 (composition) = 3.5.

    Considering from riffs and chord progressions, I think they like Sins Of Omission(SWE). I know they worship Dissection. I hope they learn the dramatic composition from Dissection…

  • Planex

    I’ve never given these guys a chance. For a long time I thought they were some popular metalcore act. This review is encouraging, they better not let me down.

    • Unearthly_Ritual

      Let us know what you think!

  • Shrümpelstiltskin

    People go nuts for Black Dahlia, and I just don’t get it. They’re a fun band for sure, but I feel like a lot of their songs (and albums) kind of blend together.

    • El_Cuervo

      For sure. They remind me of Revocation a lot in this way.

      • Carlos Marrickvillian

        Go to your room!

      • WhamBamSam

        Them’s fightin’ words. Sort of. I initially had a bit of that problem with Revocation, but their stuff eventually started to stick with me in precisely the way TBDM’s doesn’t.

      • Name’s Dalton


      • We have a winner!

      • Shrümpelstiltskin

        Agreed. I feel the exact same way about Revocation.

      • Absolomb

        So that’s why I enjoy Revocation but don’t love them…

      • Big Nando

        Fuck that, Revocation kicks ass. They’ve put out consistently great music for what seems like every year over the past several.

    • Frost15

      I share your opinion buddy. I never got why this band gets all the praise. Don’t get me wrong, they are not bad nor that kind of boring generic metalcore, but I would not rate any of their albums above 4 like many people seem to do…

      • WhamBamSam

        I’d top them out at 3.5, personally. It’s all pleasant enough in the moment, but rarely can I recall much of anything after listening.

    • Chawn DuBack

      My thoughts exactly. I was telling my buddy how I could hardly tell the song was changing my first listen.

    • lagerbottoms

      I agree. Except for Ritual. That album is the shit in my opinion.

  • Carlos Marrickvillian

    Damn that embedded track is dynamite!

  • HeavyMetalHamster

    The more memorable MDM albums in my collection have more dynamics, peaks and valleys. If you’re going to go full throttle the whole way, 33 mins is a good length for this hamster.

  • Gage

    Meh. I don’t get this band at all. All their songs blend together and fail to stand out. Then again, melodeath is typically pretty bland. Unless it’s Be’Lakor, Insomnium, or Kalmah.

    • Master of Muppets

      Hoth, King, and even Veldes or Negative Voice all do some pretty cool shit with melodeath as well, though I’ll agree that we aren’t exactly living in the golden age of the genre.
      That said, there is nothing bland about The Jester Race and I will do everything I can to hurt your feelings if you disagree.

      • ElephantsMarching

        The Jester Race is a masterpiece. I have never found something with a sound quite like that one.

    • Try Zemeth’s Rouge Noir. It’s incredibly cheesy and my favorite release from my country in this year. You may like this if you are in favor of early Kalmah and early Skyfire.

      And I pre-ordered new FRAGARAK recently. I wish you to try this. They sound like Emperor did melodic death metal, and they have the calm and serious mood your favorite bands have.

    • JimminySnakeTits

      Took the words right out of my mouth, right down to the mention of good melodeath bands (I had to double-check and make sure it wasn’t actually my post since we apparently share the same given name).

  • Bryan94

    I just leave this here…What a great record from these guys again…quality album after quality album :)

  • Dark Self

    Never feel the need to dig this band, just listen to their last song, and it will stay the same.

    My biggest concern is their attitude. They seems like a bunch of teen waiting to impressed their friends with their skills, but in the end they are just of bunch of attitude. Even the name of the band is silly….

    And also important is the singer fat couch potatoes is featuring on metal suck as collaborators doesn’t help either….

    I like my music a bit more focused and serious than a garage teen band with ability to make money from their music.


    • Unearthly_Ritual

      Personality wise they’re certainly very relaxed and silly, but they clearly take the music very seriously. They’ve had nothing but a workmanlike attitude regarding the creation of music. To think otherwise.. that confuses me. 🤔

    • urstoff

      Metal is serious business

    • surreptitious pounders

      Can barely understand what you wrote. They are not teens. Brian and Trevor in mid 30s. Trevor writes for Metalinjection not Metalsucks.

  • black dahlia’s new album is amazing. been rocking it hard. love the brandon ellis arsis-y tracks and all the eschbach evil riffing on the other ones

  • kmal666

    for me every TBDM has one or two REALLY good songs and a bunch of alright ones. This album is no different. One thing that isnt working for me is the lead guitar. I really liked Ellis in Arsis but now here all I can think is “dang, I miss Knight”

    • urstoff

      Oddly enough, I liked the solos of John Kempainen the best. He had the most interesting phrasings and melodies. I can remember lots of his solos, but I am having a hard time bringing to mind one of Knight or Ellis.

  • DubiousLee

    That groovy riff (1:05) in “As Good as Dead” puts me in mind of Ratt’s “Wanted Man”. Love it and the entire album. Needed this like a hatchet to the head!

  • james

    this album is garbage. none of their songs stick and it feels like flipping quickly through a magazine full of ads

  • WBCarson

    So far so good i like it.
    Problem is i am the only person i know who listens to metal. For most metal is 80’s hair bands. Fine if you like that music. But its difficult to find someplace so listen to music i like. XM seems to just play the same old ones they are pushing. Local radio is pop and rap or new country which grates me. I gladly moved out into the country and away from the assholes of suburban living but my internet sucks beyond dial up.
    The first metal i listened to was Death way back when. Rigor Mortis, Carnivore, Six Feet Under and the like. Than on to Cannibal Corpse and Obituary, Suffocation. Since i have branched out into Scandinavian as well. Decide and Goatwhore was ok but the satanic shtick got old real fast. Instrumentally i like them but at 46 years old i dont want gimmicks and i can pick that out pretty fast. You hate God? WTF ever….
    So i listen to different metal depending on my mood and how much bourbon i have swallowed. I dont get into the finer nuances and nit picking anymore. I like it or i dont.
    I can say i do not like most songs from such bands as As I Lay Dying.
    When a song rocks than all the sudden breaks into something that sounds like choir it irritates me.
    Keep it hard, keep it brutal until the end.
