The Black Dahlia Murder will return this year with their eighth studio album, Nightbringers. The new full-length will see an Oct. 6 release and the title track is now available for your eager ears.

As if it was a ritual, the Black Dahlia Murder have released an album every two years since they debuted with Unhallowed in 2003. TBDM have long mixed 21st century metalcore with melodic death metal, and if the new song “Nightbringers” is any indication of the full album, they’ve stayed true to that formula.

"Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me," vocalist Trevor Strnad says. "We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld - such as marriage and monogamy - came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It's 'being-the-villain music,' because we're the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it's for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and 'Kings of the Nightworld' are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle."

The official music video for “Nightbringers” can be seen above. Fans can visit the Black Dahlia Murder’s Metal Blade Records page to pre-order the new album. You’ll be able to grab traditional CDs along with limited edition cassettes, t-shirt bundles and a massive selection of vinyl options.
