The Black Dahlia Murder Team Up With Weyerbacher Brewing For “Warborn” Beer

The Black Dahlia Murder have teamed up with Weyerbacher Brewing to create a 5% ABV rye pale ale called “Warborn.” The beer will be available at the Los Angeles Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, which is set to take place on December 1-2 at The Wiltern.

Frontman Trevor Strnad commented:

“We’re extremely excited to pair with Weyerbacher in the creation of Warborn Rye Pale Ale for our appearance at Decibel Metal and Beer Fest Los Angeles. Named after the closing track of our third album, ‘Nocturnal’, Warborn is sure to be a bona fide hit amongst even the most discerning metalhead palette in attendance. The nostalgic Bolt Thrower-esque artwork was originally commissioned by the band in 2009 for a limited run of Warborn-themed long sleeve shirts that were sold exclusively on a European festival tour, and has triumphantly returned here almost ten years later to grace each can of this exquisite craft beer of the same name. The original painting was expertly handled by one John Sibbick, who constructed the iconic futuristic war scene that adorned the first edition of Warhammer 40k and subsequently Bolt Thrower’s ‘Realm of Chaos’ album.

Painstakingly aged to delicious perfection on white oak and seasoned in death metal glory, Warborn will emerge victorious!”

Metal Allegiance Share “Beer Visualizer” For “The Accuser” Feat. Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), Perform With Arch Enemy, Overkill, Etc. Members At New York Show

Metal Allegiance, the supergroup featuring core members David Ellefson (Megadeth), Alex Skolnick (Testament), Mike Portnoy (Sons Of Apollo, ex-Dream Theater, etc.), and Mark Menghi, along with multiple special guests, have shared a “beer visualizer” for their new song “The Accuser” featuring Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder). This track is from the band’s new album “Volume II – Power Drunk Majesty,” which was released today (September 7).

Strnad said the following:

“I am super honored to have been asked to join Metal Allegiance as a guest vocalist for the track ‘The Accuser‘! The list of greats that have contributed to this union of might and metal over the course of these two albums is truly staggering. To be considered a peer to any of these musicians is a high bench mark for achievement. I spit out my coffee when I saw that they chose the song I contributed to to be the opening track for the album… I was simply shocked!”

Skolnick also commented:

“We’d been searching all over for a vocalist on our opening track ‘The Accuser‘ – someone who fit the tune but who could also kick off this album right. One day, while getting ready to go on at Ozzfest/Knotfest, I heard The Black Dahlia Murder way off in the distance – Trevor Strnad was using many vocal tones and a few felt perfect for the song. I suggested him to Mark, and as it turned out, we not only found the right guy for our most aggressive track yet, we also got to bring someone from a new generation of metal into the fold; it’s great to have him on board.”

Menghi added:

“The vocalist for ‘The Accuser‘ had to fit a certain mold and sing these lyrics with honest conviction – he or she had to be willing to dig deep and understand what we were speaking of lyrically. Enter Trevor Strnad, who absolutely nailed it.

It seems that in today’s society, it’s very easy to blame a person (or persons) for something in order to save their own ass and cover-up their own lies with heinous accusations. Someone once told me that the greatest fiction novels are the ones with the most detail; unfortunately that’s how society works today and it’s sad for the people that truly need the help.”

In other news, Metal Allegiance also took the stage at the Gramercy Theatre in New York, NY last night (September 6) and they were joined by a number of guests including Strnad, Arch Enemy‘s Alissa White-Gluz, Overkill‘s Bobby Blitz, Armored Saint‘s John Bush, Death Angel‘s Mark Osegueda, and more.
