It's so good it almost ruins the rest of the album for me.

So, here's the deal: I have never been a fan of this band, despite giving every one of their albums a real chance (multiple listens). Each of them contains, at best, two-three tracks that are memorable in any way, and generally, 90% or more of their music has been entirely forgettable...until now. Despite what seems to be the consensus that this album is "more of the same," I'd argue that it is their first album that is anything but more of the same; "Everblack" totally redirects the band's course, and finally brings them much closer to realizing the full benefit of their technical potential (which is certainly above average, if not better). From the first track onward, it is instantly discernible that the quality of the band's songwriting has massively improved, and this proves to be true throughout the duration of the album (again, in stark contrast with each and every one of the band's prior albums). Essentially, this album is an amalgamation of the "good" bits and pieces from their earlier works, sliced apart and reformed, along with additional influence that props up the entirety of that culmination.

All things considered, this is a vast improvement upon "Ritual" (if not technically, then certainly from a songwriting perspective), and finally, this band has nearly become worthy of its massive hype (and Billboard-charting albums). If you've previously disregarded this band, give this album a chance; I bet you'll be equally as surprised and pleased as I am. Recommended!

In an era of death metal's constant evolution, one band is coming out on top. Waterford, Michigan's Black Dahlia Murder ( shout out to my home town) That is not why I love these guys though. This album is punishing without sounding cheesy or over the top. The opening track is actually about the black Dahlia herself. Love this song. Great opener. Phantom Limb Masturbation is actually about people that have a problem with having their arms and legs. It makes them uncomfortable and they think they are unnecessary. Leave it to Trevor and company to come up with a song that covers such obscure topics. New members Max Lavelle ( bass) and Alan Cassidy (drums) do an awesome job as the shiny new rhythm section. The guitar section of Brian Eschbach (sp?) and Ryan Knight are amazing. The riffs on this album are as tight and awesome as usual. Trevor definitely has proven to be one of the best vocalists in death metal. Into The Ever black we all will go eventually. Love this album and BDM is one of my favorite bands. Another stellar performance.

Like the title says, the Black Dahlia Murder have become predictable. I knew this album would kill, and that's exactly what it did. For sure, one of the best albums of the year. It seems like musically, it stems from "Miasma" and "Deflorate" more that anything else. Shannon Lucas's absence is noticeable on this release, but there is no lack of creativity. In a time where metal is being crowded with generic bands like never before, this is a diamond in a sea of salt. BDM fans should not be disappointed, and first time listeners might find something to grab hold of. Been a metal fan since the late 80's, and a musician myself to boot. This is a must own.

Michigan's The Black Dahlia Murder have mastered the craft of groovy death metal (with grinding blasts and just enough melody to be memorable) long ago. And on album number six, TBDM further hone this sound, stripping the arrangements of all superfluous fat and greasing their musical wheels until they squeak. And while 2013's "Everblack" might not be as good or powerful as previous Black Dahlia efforts (mainly due to its overt lack of variety and surprises), it is still an eminently exhilarating and instinctively satisfying slab of extremity, and one with hooks, killer vocals, and instrumental chops aplenty.

Alan Cassidy provides the songs with a frantic, chaotic backbeat, and opting for an approach that, even when not blasting, is positively fierce. And axemen Brian Eschbach and Ryan Knight roar over the top of him, laying down a seemingly endless stream of razorwire death-thrash riffing, frenetic leads, and deceptively tuneful solos. And Trevor Strnad, who has long established his status as being one of metal's most influential frontmen of the new millennium, turns in another vocal performance that makes one wonder if the dude is flossing his teeth with barbed-wire, trading off high black metal shrieks with low death metal growls, and sometimes even switching styles mid-line. (Although "Everblack" does definitely favor the first of these two vocal stylings -- meaning Strnad has been listening to a lot of Cradle Of Filth prior to this recording.)

After a sustained, slow intro, "In Hell Is Where She Waits For Me" slams into a brutal, larynx-lacerating vocal onslaught. Strnad dominates the show, here, with bratty, black metal shrieks, including one long, face-melting shriek near the song's beginning.

I myself, have been a TBDM fan since Nocturnal. Since I have started listening to TBDM I believe that they, as musicians, have developed greatly since the band's inception. From Unhollowed to Ritual, and even now in Everblack, you can see the band developing further and further, in both technique and sound. TBDM exemplify the diversity that Melodic Death Metal can offer.

Songs such as Raped In Hated By Vines Of Thorn show the band's developing sound, while songs such as Into the Everblack show the band's grasp on their already brutal sound. In so I believe that a 5/5 could only justify the band's effort in this latest album.

It is quite difficult to find any flaws in such a quality album. To be really picky, some of the songs can get a bit bland at times. However the synergy of the members in TBDM, and the flow of the songs makes this problem seem menial at most.

This album I recommend to any fan of the Melodeath genre, or fans of bands such as Dying Fetus, Obscura, and Deathcore bands such Rings of Saturn and Thy Art is Murder.
