The Skinny: The Black Dahlia Murder have returned with the much-anticipated, new full-length album Abysmal, which is officially set for a September 18th release. This vicious slab of unrelenting aggression showcases TBDM at their very finest with a meticulous, pin-point precise rhythmic assault mixed with ferocious speed and dynamic hooks. The band also re-enlisted the services of renowned producer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) and former bass player Ryan Williams, who also helped produce Everblack, with the sole intent to get away from the overt sonic sterility affecting far too many contemporary metal albums.

The world’s first look into Abysmal is via the track, “Vlad, Son of The Dragon,” which is streaming now in its entirety just below! The group are currently wrapping up a very successful Australian tour with Psycroptic and Colossvs, which is immediately followed by a headlining European tour.
