Have wallies stopped calling The Black Dahlia Murder a “metalcore” band yet? As cases of mistaken genre identity go, this is one of the sillier ones. How many slabs of scathingly-vicious, speaker-ruiningly heavy death metal do you need to release before people look past the odd stretched earlobe and short haircut and just accept what a band actually sounds like? Album number six in what’s becoming an accelerating run of form might not change any more slightly-slow minds than 2011’s Ritual managed to, but by this point it doesn’t really matter what you call them – The Black Dahlia Murder and their brand of savage yet accessible melodic death metal aren’t going away any time soon.

Thrash Hits TV: The Black Dahlia Murder vs The Fans

March 19th, 2012

Sometimes when you go to film a video interview, everything goes wrong. With the case of our interview with Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder, everything did. Our camera broke, and refused to film in anything other than black and white. Our microphone broke, forcing us to wing it with an external digital recorder.

Oh, and we foolishly agreed to only put questions to Trevor that were suggested by our Facebook and Twitter followers. We really ought to know better than that by now.

It seems that we can’t get enough of The Black Dahlia Murder and Skeletonwitch’s UK tour. Not only did about half our writing staff pile into the Camden Underworld when the tour hit London, but our photographer in chief, Gary Wolstenholme, was on hand to snap it when the tour arrived in his native Sheffield. His sexy, sexy pictures are just after the jump.

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

It’s Metal Mark’s birthday today so you should read this month’s blog from him

March 16th, 2010

It really is Metal Mark‘s birthday today. He’s at work today and he’s getting drunk tonight. He’s at work tomorrow as well. It’s what he does. This is why you really ought to read about his Heavy Metal life.

Hola Metal Friends! So February is the shortest month of the year, yet in Atlanta this year, it was packed full of shows each week. I literally only had two days where I wasn’t at a show, editing, at a party, drinking until the room was spinning, or working. As tired as I am, it was a great month for metal fans here and this is my report….. from what I can remember.

It’s been another month and so it’s time for another hazy-eyed narrative from Atlanta’s finest metaller-bothering boozehound, Metal Mark from SkullsNBones.com. This time, he’s been to Mayhem Festival. Ooh err…

What’s going on metal people?! The past few weeks have been extremely busy here in Atlanta. It’s been a metal overload! So many shows, so many beers, so little time, but it’s been awesome.

In the past few weeks I have seen live shows from Iwrestledabearonce, Atheist, The Faceless, Psyopus, The Agonist, and of course the all day Mayhem Festival. Most of this blog will be about the Mayhem Festival since I had a lot of interviews and the show was insane. So here we go!
