The Black Dahlia Murder - Miasma CD


The Black Dahlia Murder seems to get bunched in with the metalcore scene, which unfortunately is not correct in the slightest. They have some metalcore to them, but they are mostly solid melodic death metal. Their second album Miasma is similar to their previous album Unhallowed but improves on it what if failed at, and that was the drumming and the song structures both of which are majorly improved. Miasma is a breath of fresh air in my music library, breaking me away from the typical 3-chord punk from the 80's, the d-beat filled crust bands, and the tremolo picking blast beat inspired old school death metal that I love.
