The Black Dahlia Murder (TBDM) is a
melodic death metal/ metalcoreband from Waterford, Michigan. The Black Dahlia Murder is named after the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short, often referred to as Black Dahlia.
The band played in Ozzfest 2005 and also participated in the
Sounds of the Undergroundtour in 2006, which encompasses both the United Statesand Canada. They also played at Wacken Open Airin 2007.
Current bassist Bart Williams left his former band, Detroit's Today I Wait, to tour with the Black Dahlia Murder. After touring with the band on their co-headlining gig with
Throwdownand their European dates with Liar, he joined the group full-time. Bart was one of two engineers (the other being Walls of Jericho's Mike Hasty) on the band's first full-length album, " Unhallowed".
The band's second album "Miasma" peaked at #118 on the
Billboard 200. [ [http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/retrieve_chart_history.do?model.chartFormatGroupName=Albums&model.vnuArtistId=515804&model.vnuAlbumId=721015 billboard.com] . Billboard 200.] Recently, Pierre Langlois left the band for a more secure lifestyle, and the band has finished their search for a replacement drummer and found former All That Remains drummer, Shannon Lucas.
While originally the band had a website at blackdahliamurder.org, sometime between late 2006 and early 2007 it went offline and disappeared completely. There are no indications left whether the site will be brought back or not, but for the time being, the band can be found on its
MySpacepage. Their new album, entitled "Nocturnal", was released on September 18, 2007. The album debuted at #72 on the Billboard 200.
