The Black Dahlia Murder - Ritual

A few weeks ago, one of my favorite death metal bands released their newest album.
'Ritual' by The Black Dahlia Murder, their fifth studio album to date.

Those familiar with the current metal scene have probably heard the name, if not heard their material.
Of all their albums, I have to say this is one of my favorites, up there with 'Nocturnal' and 'Miasma', if not better. It's really a big step from their last effort 'Deflorate', which, wasn't terrible, wasn't great either.

It opens up with "A Shrine to Madness" with a slow building intro then transition into a guitar, then all the instruments drop in and the lyrics start.
A good opening song, then it goes right into my favorite song on the album, "Moonlight Equilibrium." Linked below. Listen to the part @ 1:30. Love that bass and guitar.



The whole album is great and I say anyone who is a death metal fan, if you have no music by TBDM yet, what are you waiting for?
