“MALENCHANTMENTS OF THE NECROSPHERE”: VINCE’S FAVORITE SONG FROM THE NEW BLACK DAHLIA MURDER ALBUM GETS RELEASED!
Actually I dunno if “Malenchantments of the Necrosphere” is still Vince’s favorite song from The Black Dahlia Murder’s Ritual or not, but I know he proclaimed to be so when we first got the album. In any case, it would be hard to blame him if it were his favorite song on the record, because, by golly, does it ever rock.
The swirling riff that appears beneath the verse always makes me envision a sentient, malicious tornado that has specific aims with regards to whose life it wants to royally fuck, and the riff beneath the chorus is some pretty sweet machine gun shit. And, of course, Ryan Knight’s guitar solo is totally killer. Really, there’s nothing bad about this song. If for some reason you weren’t already desperate to hear Ritual, hopefully this will do the trick.
The track is now streaming over at AP. Crank that shit, and then crank that shit again (these songs are so well-written as to be fairly addictive, so we won’t blame you should you feel the need to listen multiple times in a row), and then come back and let us know what you think in the comments section. But our guess is that what you think will be some variation of “YES!!!!”
Ritual comes out via Metal Blade on June 21. It’s so goddamn good.
