Max Lavelle Of The Black Dahlia Murder — The Heavy Blog Is Heavy Interview

The Black Dahlia Murder is one of the best modern death metal bands. Each record is better than the last, and the songs only get bigger and better. Such is the case for the group’s latest effort Everblack, out now on Metal Blade Records.

The Black Dahlia Murder – Everblack

Recently Trevor Strnad, frontman for The Black Dahlia Murder, conducted an interview that could do nothing but heighten the anticipation of longtime fans for their upcoming release Everblack. Paraphrasing, Trevor stated the album’s name and content was an artistic rebuttal to the speculation that the band had “changed direction” as a result of participating in this year’s Warped Tour. After thorough investigation, Trevor stated his case correctly. Everblack is a rebuttal to said speculation — the sixth studio album Black Dahlia Murder fans wanted.
