THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER - "Abysmal"; stream it in its entirety now!

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER unleash the crushing, new full-length album, "Abysmal" on the masses this week; stream it in its entirety now!

The problem of dropping a record as career-defining as 2013's "Everblack" is that the bar is set so high following it up is a galling task. That THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's response to such a challenge comes in the form of the devastating "Abysmal" serves to once again demonstrate why they are considered one of the most vital bands in contemporary death metal. "Once the record started to come together we knew it was going to be something special," states vocalist Trevor Strnad. "It's more urgent, it has more dynamics, it's a more emotive record, and it has a more raw, angry sound to it. It's still million mile-per-hour death metal, but when you invest so much thought and emotion into what you're creating you end up with a record that does stand out, and we can hold our heads up high and say yeah, this is our best work."

"Abysmal", is a vicious slab of unrelenting aggression showcases TBDM at their very finest with a meticulous, pin-point precise rhythmic assault mixed with ferocious speed and dynamic hooks. The band also re-enlisted the services of renowned producer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) and former bass player Ryan Williams, who also produced "Everblack", with the sole intent to get away from the overt sonic sterility affecting far too many contemporary metal albums.
