The Black Dahlia Murder Premiere “Removal Of The Oaken Stake” Lyric Video, Cancel European/UK Tour

The track is from the band’s new album “Verminous,” which was released today (April 17). In other news, the group have also cancelled their European/UK tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. They said the following about that:

“We regret to inform you about the cancellation of our upcoming European Summer tour. This sadly includes our appearances in The Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Finland, and Russia as well as our slated return to the Bloodstock Festival in the UK.

The Black Dahlia Murder Premiere “Child Of Night” Music Video

The Black Dahlia Murder have premiered a new video for their new song “Child Of Night.” This track is from the band’s new album “Verminous,” which will be released on April 17.

The Black Dahlia Murder To Release New Album “Verminous” In April, Share Lyric Video For The Title Track

The Black Dahlia Murder have announced that they will be releasing their new album “Verminous” on April 17. You can check out a lyric video for the title track below:

“Verminous” Track Listing:

01. “Verminous”
02. “Godlessly”
03. “Removal Of The Oaken Stake”
04. “Child Of Night”
05. “Sunless Empire”
06. “The Leather Apron’s Scorn”
07. “How Very Dead”
08. “The Wereworm’s Feast”
09. “A Womb In Dark Chrysalis” (Interlude)
10. “Dawn Of Rats”

Trevor Strnad said the following about the new record:

“I think this is the biggest evolutionary leap we’ve ever taken from one album to the next. We stoked the creative fires with 2017’s ‘Nightbringers‘ and it’s gone much further now in ‘Verminous‘. It’s a very colorful, moody, and charismatic album that experiments with new sounds and ideas without losing the cutthroat Black Dahlia edge. There is a lot of minutiae to digest. Plenty of delicious little Easter eggs woven into the fabric of each song. Each one is a living, breathing entity that will stand on its own as some of the best music this band has ever created.”

“We, members of our beloved and hidden world of the heavy metal underground teeming just below the surface, are the verminous. The rats and roaches looming in the cracks and crevices of this fallen world. We are the pariahs that the world of normality finds loathsome and obscene. We are the carriers of a plague of knowledge so vile that it could bring the unsuspecting mankind to its knees. Always the underdogs. Our love for this music and what it means to our lives is foolishly underestimated.”

“The outside world of religion-warped ‘normalcy’ is the opposing viewpoint. We are the ultimate antagonist to their archaic ways of thought, the dreamers of the nightmares that shake them to their very core. Although we are but lowly vermin to them, the unseen and underestimated, our numbers are millions strong. We cast aside their ways and prefer to take solace in the hidden realm of the underground where the dark fruits of free thought can be enjoyed. We are our own Gods. The responsibility of our actions is ours alone.”

As previously reported, you can catch The Black Dahlia Murder on tour with Testament, Municipal Waste and Meshiaak this spring.

The Black Dahlia Murder Planning To Release New Album In April

It looks like The Black Dahlia Murder’s new album will be released in April. Trevor Strnad confirmed the news during an interview with Pure Grain Audio:

“The album comes out in April and the first taste of it will be at the beginning of next month, the first song and the artwork and the big reveal of the name, and all that. Pretty excited about that; it’s been a long time coming now. I recorded vocals for the album in May. So, it will be like a year almost until it finally comes out. It’s been a long time to think about it, let me tell you.”

“We’re writing new music now, and we’re heading into the studio this summer. We’re excited to present some more stuff soon. I don’t think it will have too much to do with the last album, other than it’s the same band playing it. It’s not, like, a sequel or anything like that — just some more Black Dahlia Murder songs.”
