- September 28th, 2015 –

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER will return to North America this fall to headline the IndieMerch Tour with Iron Reagan, Harm’s Way, and Maruta. The trek will start this week and it marks the group’s first official Canadian/US tour supporting their highly anticipated new album. Be sure to either see below or head over to for all tour dates. Look for them headlining across Europe/UK in Jan.

Abysmal is a vicious slab of unrelenting aggression showcases TBDM at their very finest with a meticulous, pin-point precise rhythmic assault mixed with ferocious speed and dynamic hooks. The band also re-enlisted the services of renowned producer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) and former bass player Ryan Williams, who also produced Everblack, with the sole intent to get away from the overt sonic sterility affecting far too many contemporary metal albums.
