Limited CD/DVD edition includes bonus DVD containg 40 minutes of excluisve content. 2009 release from Michigan's oddball sons of molten melodic Death Metal. Classical-come-apocalyptic; violently energetic yet melodiously beautiful, Deflorate sees the songwriting of band leader and rhythm guitarist Brian Eschbach at its most developed and refined, exponentially complimented by contributions from both bass savant Bart Williams and newcomer guitarist/shred lord Ryan Knight (ex - Arsis), whose leads are destined to dazzle fans and take the band's punishing potency to dramatic new heights. Combined with the intense performances of uniquely charismatic howler/growler Trevor Strnad and rising extreme drumming star Shannon Lucas, the cannon of talent possessed by The Black Dahlia Murder is more stacked to destroy than ever! Recorded at the famed Audio Hammer Studios by production wizard Jason Suecof and engineering talent Mark Lewis, Deflorate is multifaceted death trip: beautiful, evil, and morbidly addicting.
