The Black Dahlia Murder: AltPress.com premiere new single off the upcoming album "Ritual"
"Malenchanments of the Necrosphere "now live on Alt Press. Weeklong tour with Beast in the Field starts 6/1. Pre-orders still available

Agoura Hills, CA – May 31st, 2011 – The face-melting Detroit quintet, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER (TBDM), has just released the final single from Ritual, the band's fifth full-length album hitting streets June 21st in North America and June 17/20 in Europe. Hosting the exclusive worldwide premiere of the track Malenchanments of the Necrosphere is none other than Alternative Press Magazine. Check out the track HERE and be sure to leave a comment and spread the word.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments: "This stomper of a track is about a man who has been trapped in a body of stone… a golem, so to speak. He is driven insane by his bondage, and begins a violent rampage against human kind in search of the druids who condemned him. This song is one of the heaviest on the album… the main riff reminds me of Robocop marching along. Pump your fists!"

Ritual is a collection of 12 tracks that see the band staying true to their sound and style while progressing in both writing and musicianship. Guitarist Ryan Knight has delivered truly searing leads that will without a doubt daze and lay waste the ears of both loyal Black Dahlia diehards and burgeoning fans alike. Music for Ritual was recorded in early 2011 in Detroit, MI with Mark Lewis (Deicide, Unearth) and the band producing with vocals and mixing taking place at Orlando, Florida based studio, Audio Hammer with Jason Suecof (TBDM, Beneath the Massacre, Job for a Cowboy, All That Remains). Several pre-order options are available at the following location including the newly added green vinyl: MetalBlade.com/BDM

TBDM recently finished up a tour in Europe with label mates Amon Amarth and Cyclone Empire act Evocation, which included dates in Norway, Sweden, Russia, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, and Croatia just to name a few. Check out this live, fan-shot video of the new track Moonlight Equilibrium off Ritual filmed at the band's stop in Moscow on May 16 HERE.

TBDM will be playing a week's worth of dates with Michigan's Beast in the Field, a two man band of epic proportions. Dates with Beast in the Field kick off in Columbus, OH at the Ravari Room and end in Nashville, TN at The End. Ticket buy links listed below.

Fans can also catch TBDM live when the band headlines one of the summer's heaviest tours, the Summer Slaughter Tour, with label-mates Whitechapel and Six Feet Under in addition to Darkest Hour, Dying Fetus, and more.
