Melodic death metal at its best.
on March 10, 2015
Nocturnal by the Black Dahlia Murder to me is the pinnacle of all melodic death metal albums. Now their are many, many more bands out their than can crush this group. I shall not deny that, But this was the first melo death album i had ever listened to when i was 14 and i loved it. I had to have it. Six years later i finally got it. And even though i know all the songs. They still are amazing to hear over and over again even that many years later. Guitar work is top notch and their are some beautiful riffs on here that destroy me many a time. The drums are intense and amazing, flowing with the album as a whole. But honestly what sets this album apart for me from many other death metal bands. Is the fact that this albums vocalist does a predominately high pitched shriek, compared to the traditional growl. I do not like death growls at all. So whenever i can get to listen to a death metal band with high vocals i love it. Its a shame how short this cd is. I wish it was longer, because it goes by too fast. I recommend you check this out if what i said appeals to you. And if not. Thank you for the read.
