    Hell yes. The last album was second only to Nocturnal, IMO.

    Sick! I've been on a Black Dahlia kick lately. They never fail to deliver.

    Loving the sound of this - I just wish they'd go back to the Nocturnal guitar tone! So dark

    But thats going backwards, which is generally not a thing bands like to do. I love that album as it was my introduction, but Im all for changing it up.

    As long as the songs are catchy idc what they do/sound like. Some of the consistently best (blackened death metal? Idk genres) ever.

    The chorus to Jars? Fucking banger. Apex? Fucking slaps. Black Valor? Wish it was twice as long. Catacomb Hecatomb? Hecayes bby.

    Fanboi all you want.

    TBDM have proven to be one of the few consistently great death metal acts of the last 20 years.

    Changing it up without reinventing themselves and still keeping it compelling and catchy.

    For real, I'm always stoked for new TBDM.

    Yeah fair point man

    Agree, though I do think their last few releases have been up and down. Didn't really care for Abysmal, and I don't think Nightbringers is as good as Everblack, still great though.

    Sounds as great as something I'd expect from TBDM. Nightbringers was such a great album and definitely brought that Nocturnal energy, sounds like they're keeping that momentum and I'm lovin' it.

    This is great, the last album I liked by them was in fact Noctural. I didn't even really like Nightbringers. It was cool but meh but this song sounds like it belongs on Nocturnal which is good with me.

    seriously. I can count on one hand the number of DM bands that have this consistent of output while still keeping things interesting (Decapitated, Allegaeon, Revocation).

    You should get familiar with it, they really delivered with that album. I’m very curious to hear how they decided to follow it up.

    Yes!!!!

    Been hooked on these guys since Unhollowed. Had a few albums I don't like quite as much as others but they always bring it.

    Eschbach is the man.

    Oh hell yes. Nocturnal is one of my favorite albums of all time, I haven't listened to them much since Deflorate. This has me excited to get back into them.

    It would be really cool to get some actual rug run downs for this one too. Tue Madsen mixed it and they recorded the guitars at Ellis’ I read. I’ve got the Deflorate studio rig saved in a notepad file. It was deleted or removed from here since then I believe. I don’t think the original link I got it from works anymore, it’s been a long time. Every time they release an album I search like crazy to get the details for the guitar tracks and every time it remains a secret. Just some Maxon promo ads, maybe some passing shots in the studio and brand endorsements in the CD booklet to go off of. Come on Brian, how are you going to hit us with that ”Windowmaker” intro and leave it at that? Is it 6505’s in the studio or just live? Did you use a boost or just eq after? OS Mesa cabs? 5150 III’s again?

    Is it just me or is TBDM especially secretive with what is probably a simple gear approach?
