THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER
"Detroit's the Black Dahlia Murder, named for the infamous 1947 slaying of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short, aka the Black Dahlia, actually sounds like they should live in Scandinavia, whence originates much of the frenetic brand of death and black metal that inspires them. Formed in January 2001, the Black Dahlia Murder followed their six-song What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse demo with the four-track A Cold-Blooded Epitaph EP, which was released on their own Lovelost Records. Having already made a number of acclaimed concert appearances (e.g., the Milwaukee Metal Fest), the group -- comprised of vocalist Trevor Strnad, guitarists Brian Eschbach andJon Kemppainen, bassist David Lock, and drummer Cory Grady -- signed with Metal Blade in 2003 and was soon recording its debut album, Unhallowed. The 2005 release Miasma and 2007's Nocturnalkept death metal as the group's foundation, though the band began exhibiting an increasingly melodic streak that came to fruition on 2009's brutal but majestic Deflorate. The group's fifth studio album,Ritual, arrived in the summer of 2011." - AllMusicGuide
FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE
FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE
Symphonic/technical death metal band from Perugia, Italy. Fleshgod Apocalypse was created in April of 2007 when they released a two track demo entitled 'Promo 07', which was later released as part of the 4-way split called 'Da Vinci Death Code'.

In early 2008 the band started to perform live in the Italian and European underground scene supporting bands like Behemoth, Origin (7), Dying Fetus, Hate Eternal, Suffocation, Napalm Death and many more.

In May 2008 the band entered 16th Cellar Studio again to record its first full-length album, 'Oracles'. In December that same year the band decided to part ways with Neurotic Records and inked a deal with Willowtip Records. 'Oracles' was released in April 2009 and the band started an intense show schedule all over Europe. First touring in support of God Dethroned in the Balkans, then with Vader and Marduk on the Funeral Nation Tour, then finally they covered the UK and EIRE territories with their first headlining tour.

The 'Mafia' EP was recorded, mixed and mastered again at 16th Cellar Studio in January 2010 and released by Willowtip Records. The release marked a big step forward for the band in every way. Right after the end of the recording session the band embarked on another European tour supporting Suffocation followed by a headlining tour of Russia.

After some Festivals and gigs in the summertime, the band flew overseas for their first tour of the US/Canada dubbed the Decibel Defiance Tour 2010. The tour took place in October/November 2010 with Suffocation, Faceless, Through The Eyes Of The Dead and Decrepit Birth. Before the end of the year the band played several more gigs in Europe. 2011 opened with the Bonecrusher Fest, a European tour with Dying Fetus, Keep Of Kalessin, Carnifex, Annotations Of An Autopsy and Angelus Apatrida.

In November of 2010, the band signed a worldwide deal with Extreme Management Group, Inc. and began writing their second full length album. In May of 2011 the band signed a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records and began wrapping up work on this album. During this time Francesco Ferrini, the pianist and orchestrator who has worked with the band from the beginning, joined Fleshgod Apocalypse as full-time member. This enabled them to have even more grand symphonic arrangements on 'Agony', taking the bands signature sound to new euphoric heights.

In 2011 'Agony' is released. The mix and mastering was done by Stefano “Saul” Morabito from 16th Cellar Studios. Marco Hasmann once again crafts an intricate depiction of the bands concept with his cover art.
