This September/October, The Black Dahlia Murder will hit the road for a North American headlining tour, featuring After The Burial, Carnifex, Rivers of Nihil, and Undeath as openers.

Trevor Strnad (vocals) comments: “IS THIS REAL LIFE? Yes, thankfully! We are beyond excited (and a little emotional) to finally announce our ‘Verminous’-themed ‘Up From The Sewer Tour 2021’! It’s been a long, torturous year full of disappointments and cosmic cockblocks, and seeing this tour come into fruition is the light at the end of the tunnel we’ve been eager to share with you all.
We are honoured to have assembled our dudes in After The Burial, Carnifex, Rivers of Nihil and Undeath for an evening of guaranteed fun, friendship, and ferocious heavy metal music. Get tickets now!

Virtually every band claims that their new record is heavier, more melodic and more dynamic than the last. For once, ‘Verminous’ fulfills that promise. This is a deeper and smarter realization of the Michigan crew’s tried and tested formula, and one blessed with several of the finest songs they have ever written…File next to ‘Nocturnal’ and ‘Ritual’ as an unquestionable career peak.” – Blabbermouth (USA)
Verminous’ is] not JUST another great Black Dahlia Murder album. It’s yet more evidence that The Black Dahlia Murder are truly in a league of their own. Do NOT take a gift like this for granted.” – Metal Sucks (USA)
‘Verminous’ is one of the sharpest, smartest, and most consistent collections of songs which The Black Dahlia Murder have produced to date.” – No Clean Singing (USA)
The result is a really great Melo Death album that will delight genre fans!” – Legacy Magazine (Germany), 13/15 points
In general, you have never experienced TBDM in such a creative and versatile way, but still with a core of roughness and love for death metal!” – Slam Magazine (Austria), 10/10 points
So, in the end you get a typical, i.e. musically excellent, album with a slight twist – which also sounds great!” – Fuze Magazine (Germany)
Since guitarist Brandon Ellis (also Arsis, ex-Sylosis, etc.) joined The Black Dahlia Murder in 2016, the US Death Metal players have been moving on another level. Ellis has definitely given the gang around Rampensau Trevor Strnad a new quality with his outstanding, highly technical guitar playing.” – Rock Hard Magazine (Germany), 9/10 points.
