Metal Blade Records has reminded fans of The Black Dahlia Murder that their new album, "Nightbringers" will be released this Friday, November 06th, 2017. According to the record label, the eighth studio album "has already become the best-selling direct-to-consumer pre-order in the label’s storied history!" That's pretty impressive for a label like Metal Blade.

Band member Trevor Strnad said about the album, and death metal, in general, “Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me,” Strnad explains. “We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld – such as marriage and monogamy – came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It’s ‘being-the-villain music’, because we’re the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it’s for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and ‘Kings Of The Nightworld’ are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle.“
