The often imitated yet never duplicated Detroit deathsters The Black Dahlia Murder have returned to the public eye to reclaim their rightful throne as leaders of all things extreme with their third blackened opus of thrashing melodic death metal, Nocturnal. "I don't think the pretenders will be able to match this one," proclaims vocalist Trevor Strnad of their scorching new ... Read more in Amazon's The Black Dahlia Murder Store

BBC Review

Many still retain an antiquated vision of metal as a world of the nerdy, disenfranchised and aesthetically challenged. Yet, in truth, its journey through the 21st century has taken some decidedly odd turns.

Death metal is now the preserve of two camps, divided by a generation gap yet frequently co-existing at the same shows in a kind of uneasy truce: heavily tattooed youthful fashionistas on the one side, weather-beaten veterans in Deicide t-shirts standing firm on the other. The dividing line between the ‘deathcore’ frequently favoured by the former and the old-fashioned rigor mortis of the latter may often be hard to spot, yet this hasn’t stopped a surfeit of hot air being expelled on the subject in the realms of internet and moshpit alike.

For the many of us confused by all of this, it’s just as well we’ve got The Black Dahlia Murder around. This visually unprepossessing Detroit troupe, over the course of their previous three albums, have somehow managed to garner a rabid following amidst both camps, simply by raising the ante mercilessly on their death metal chops to deliver a merciless meld of melody and malice that slices like blade to jugular.  

Like so many benchmark metal records of this decade, Deflorate takes many of its original cues from Scandinavian saviours At the Gates, and particularly their 1995 pièce de résistance Slaughter of the Soul. Yet The Black Dahlia Murder’s trump card is an ability to channel influences from Swedish death metal, hardcore, thrash and traditional heavy metal into a ferociously hyperactive blizzard of intensity that miraculously balances out nimble technicality and hell-for-leather bravura to perfection.

There’s no let-up whatsoever in the 33 feverishly exhilarating minutes of Deflorate, which frantically cram in a veritable embarrassment of hammer-blow riffs, blistering solos, and Grand Guignol vocal flourishes, almost as if all three are going out of fashion – ironically, what this hardy gang are doing is sidestepping spurious concerns of fashion altogether. So, ultimately, who's to care which side of the fence they fall, when these expert butchers slay with such surgical precision and straight-up savagery. --Jimmy Martin

This is the album The Black Dahlia Murder have been building to. Everything is refined. The riffs are spectacular, the drum parts astounding, the singing is varied, layered and evil...oh my is it evil! Plus the addition of Ryan Knight on lead guitar has opened the door for much more melodic and memorable solos than any of their previous works and cements this as their best album to date. If you didn't like the earlier albums by The Black Dahlia Murder then leave this blackened casket unopened. But if their previous albums were enough to whet your appetite then step on in my black brethren.

The album opens with "Black Valor", it's as fast and as black as you might expect and it lets you know what this album intends to deliver...a whirlwind of blast beats, lighting fast riffs and blackened lyrics. Early highlight, "Necropolis", has a mid-paced verse with some ingenious china cymbal placement and less emphasis on double kick speed. "Selection Unnatural" is stupidly technical and by the time you reach the penultimate track "That Which Erodes the Most Tender of Things" you'll think surely they can't raise the bar any higher...then they do... "I Will Return"; one of the greatest metal songs ever written and a song which features the best black metal riff Emperor never wrote.

As Trevor Stroud (BDM Singer) said himself "we're "more accomplished" players and songwriters. We're just trying to stay within our sound, but always push it to the limits." That's what "Deflorate" is...the most accomplished Black Dahlia Murder album to date. If you weren't interested before, you won't be now. But if you loved what they've delivered up to this point, stop reading now and buy this album!

This is a good album. Initially, however, it is very samey until you start to get into it, at which point it stops being a generic melodic death metal album and becomes an anthemic, catchy, brilliant Black Dahlia album. Granted I don't think it is as good as 'Nocturnal' but it's definately close. The new BDM offering is perhaps slightly less melodic than previous albums and favours more black/death metal styling, but the trademark tone of BDM is definately still there. Trevor's lyrical content is as unhinged, deranged and brutal as it is brilliant, whilst his range and delivery are fantastic.
One of the best things about this boxset is the DVD, which, I didn't expect a lot out of, maybe a few videos and live performances. Actually, it is hilarious chronicling the backstage exploits of one of Metal's great party bands.
Stand out tracks on this album are definately 'I Will Return', 'That which erodes even the most tender of things', 'Eyes of Thousand', 'Black Valor' and 'Necropolis', although the rest of it is very listenable.
I'd buy this, even if it were solely for the DVD, it's that funny! That said, the music is worthy of the attention of most metal fans. Buy it, listen to it 3 times and you'll love it but don't expect to fall in love with it instantly, just give it a chance.

I have listened to the album a few times now and it is quite addictive but there are no real special hilights, Black Valor is a good song on the album and there are more guitar solos in general, but i feel that the riffs have changed a fair bit since they got a new guitarist after one of them left (who did do the previous 3 albums), give it a shot but don't be dissapointed if it doesn't blow ur mind
