The Vans Warped Tour begins four days after Everblack is released in North America. For tour dates and tickets, visit vanswarpedtour.com.
Vocalist Trevor Strnad reveals the concept behind Goat of Departure: “This song is about how the goat came to represent Christian evil and the origins of the infamous ‘horns’ metal hand sign.”
“Goat Of Departure” lyrics:
“Goat of departure on his back rides their shame antithesis of their ivory christian chains fearful thee ovis their weakened hearts and minds we are the satyrs of hedonistic kind less travelled is our path laid darkly to the left footprint of mendes emblazoning our armored breast great bearded capra who towers oe’er the land a tribute to your magnificence the feared sign of the horns shows on our hands azazel the damned ibex swath of scarlet ties his neck to the desert banished yet our curse lives on embrace the glory the goat worship the one who burns below heretic liberation of the soul dispel their false salvation as a whole misunderstood our lord preserver of the horde of mendes enchants our angel cleaving swords o silvered capra taught us to fear no man in your honor we have gathered strength to rid their aging falsehoods from this land we’ll fight their kingdom high the burdened scapegoat cast aside like he has we shall too survive melding our powers undenied order of ebon we are his righteous blade reich of satanic rule the iron might of baphomet bringers of chaos we are an antichrist swing spiked morning stars to crush his kingdom our delight danse ye now unto to the satyrs lyre spring heeled devotion to hells eternal fires instinctively to follow thine desire we should ashamed not be preservation of the will is key embrace the glory the goat worship the one who burns below heretic liberation of the soul dispel their false salvation as a whole we’ll fight their kingdom high as the burdened scapegoat cast aside like he has we shall too survive melding our powers undenied”
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’s sixth full-length album, Everblack, will be released on June 11th in North America and on June 7th/10th in Europe. The cover art for Everblack was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller with Weta, whose recent projects include: The Hobbit, Avatar, Chronicles of Narnia, and more. Recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside. Trevor Strnad’s horror-inspired lyrics persist on Everblack, beginning with In Hell is Where She Waits for Me, a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.
Fans can stream Into the Everblack now at metalblade.com/bdm. Everblack will be released as a limited first edition Digipak-CD featuring the exclusive European bonus track Sepukku. The same song will be featured on the 3-panel-gatefold vinyl where you will be seeing the stunning cover artwork in full glory!
