Watch War On Women, Unearth, The Black Dahlia Murder, Etc. Members Cover Scandal’s “The Warrior”

“Two Minutes To Late Night” have shared a video of their host Jordan “Gwarsenio Hall” Olds covering Scandal’s “The Warrior” with Shawna Potter (War On Women), Vic (Vile Creature), Ken Susi (Unearth), KW (Vile Creature), and Alan Cassidy (The Black Dahlia Murder). You can check that out below:

The following was said in the video’s description:

“NOT PAT BENATAR! We got our friends to cover this classic karaoke standard from the comfort of their own homes. This song features Shawna Potter of War on Women, Ken Susi of Unearth, Alan Cassidy of The Black Dahlia Murder, and both KW and Vic of Vile Creature.

This is our ninth bedroom cover (we think? How do you count that four-song Panama set?) made with the support of Patreon. With so many musicians stuck at home with no outlets, we’re going to keep producing these style videos and use the Patreon to give some money to everyone who has a part in them. Please support our friends by donating to our newly redone Patreon at www.honorableswords.com.”

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly everyone on the planet, and sadly some of the last people to get their lives back will be the ones we depend on to get us through these times. I wanted to create a platform that aids artists, their crew, and global healthcare efforts alike.

The experience of a live concert is irreplaceable, but my aim with Slay At Home is to provide every person in the world an experience they haven’t seen yet, right from their own devices. I’ve never been more proud to be part of the metal community and have so many great friends willing to join the fun, as we support two great organizations.”

The Black Dahlia Murder also commented:

“It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the elephant in the room aka the rescheduling of our big US tour with Testament and Municipal Waste, as well as our headlining off dates to, from, and between the scheduled Testament shows.

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.
