Hey, I know you people all say that the Black Dahlia Murder is metalcore, but their newest CD (MIASMA) basically seals their genre as FODDER-FOR-BLOODRUNSBLACK-TO-RIP-OFF-OF (jk) Melodeath, I mean, listen to them and compare them to dissection...They are pretty similar. Anyways, what are your thoughts and opinions about these guys? Im gonna go see them in Michigan soon, my friend talks with them and says that the singer is pretty cool. The guitarists are amazing, and come up with some incredibly dark melodies, like in "Miasma" and "Spite Suicide". The singer is so good too, he can do the high pitched barking, and then quickly change into the low pitched guttural.\


EDIT: My friend ended up trying out for them, and the singer is a douche bag.

Unhallowed? Oh yeah...I love the video where they play the song Unhallowed bit, and then break into Funeral Thirst. Their lyrics and song titles are so dark too, like Funeral Thirst, Thy Horror Cosmic, and stuff. Strikes amazing images for me.

i never knew what the hell they were. the vox are metal enough to me, but the guitar work always struck me as metalcore.

either way, i love em.
best songs = funeral thirst, i'm charming, and elder misanthropy.

They're not pretentious enough for me.

I'm just kidding. They've just never done it for me.

I like them alot but I like Miasma better then Unhallowed ( i am a fan of metalcore that could be it) ther riffing is just breathtaking some moments. My one compliant is that some of their songs sound very samey. Great live band saw them at SOTU this year.

are they allowed here?


I Pm'd greety a while ago (April, I believe) on them, and he said something along the lines of: "I could care less because they are garbage. "

Hahahaha, I miss Greety's posts.

Not a big melo-death fan, but I do enjoy this band, Unhallowed is great, especially Thy Horror Cosmic, Funeral Thirst, and When the Last Grave Has Emptied

im surprised this thread hasnt been completely flamed and closed yet. i agree that black dahlia murder deserves some time of metal title (that's not metal core).

I've heard a lot of people talking about them , mostly insideac :P .
I got to mysongbook and listen to some guitar pro tabs , I liked it , then I downloaded some songs and I think they are great .
They remind me a lot of Quo Vadis (very fast guitar riffs , fast drumming and shit)
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

I love them. I hate when people say that they're metalcore, too. I think it's pretty clear that they're a melodic death metal band.

Anyone else a little disappointed by their newer stuff? I prefer Unhallowed.

I love this band, but I found that there was more of a hardcore influence on the Unhallowed cd rather than Miasma, which I find is a little bit better than Unhallowed. But it doesn't matter much for me, because I don't mind metalcore.

Funeral Thirst is one of my favorite songs.

Closed Casket Requiem was the first Metal song I ever learned.

The drumming and riffage in this band is pretty sweet.

yeah, the only REAL good song on Miasma is "I'm Charming".
Unhallowed had "Funeral Thirst", "Elder Misanthropy", "Contagion", "The Blackest Incarnation" "Hymn For The Wretched" and...fuck it, the whole album sans "Thy Horror Cosmic". i just hate that song.

"Thy Horror Cosmic" is my favorite from the album. And yeah, Miasma was a bit disappointing after listening to Unhallowed.

since when does ****ing metalcore band blastbeat for 3-4 minutes out of 5 minute songs? plus the gutterals, and the high picthed barks arn't metalcore type screams, they are all metal, anyone who says they are metalcore doesnt know **** about music. Oh yeah, i'm not a fanboy, i don't even like them that much, but they are absolutly metal.
