What else can I say about The Black Dahlia Murder?
I like them more than Carcass.
There. I said it.
Oh, and one more thing: this week we’re giving away an awesome fucking TBDM prize. Enter this contest and you can win the Ritual deluxe box or the limited pressing gatefold vinyl, or maybe both, depending on how much we feel like spending on postage!
I’m beginning to wonder if I can enter these contests myself…
Now, to put it lightly: TBDM are underground death metal enthusiasts. So you find us the most brutal, blasting, rotting, underground death act that we’ve never heard before. Then we’ll pass it on to them, pretending we found it and stealing all your thunder. It could be your shitty band, or your favorite local band, or you could throw us a curve ball from India or some shit.
If they out-growl the other entries, you’ll score the excellent slab of vinyl pictured above. Just send a link to: TBDMContest@Decibelmagazine.com
Your boys will get some props on the Deciblog, and we’ll pass their name along to TBDM’s singer, Trevor Strnad. If he’s impressed, who the fuck knows where that could go?
And when you’re not busy listening to your brand new record, maybe you can catch them on tour in Rocktober.
