START YOUR HUMP DAY WITH THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’S RITUALWe’ve been hyping The Black Dahlia Murder’s Ritual for awhile now, telling you it’s one of the best death metal albums of the year, and probably just one of the best metal albums of the year, period. Well, now you can hear it for yourself — it’s streaming right here. It’s kind of a pain in the ass to get the player going — you need to use Windows Media, or, if you’re a Mac user like myself, Metal Injection tells me you can use Flip4Mac for Quicktime — but it’s totally worth it. There isn’t a bad song on the album. It’s heavy, it’s catchy, it’s epic the vocals are evil and the solos rippin’… it’s basically everything you want from a metal album.

Headbang here, then come back and celebrate BDM’s goodness in our comments section. Ritual comes out June 21 on Metal Blade.

And don’t forget that The Black Dahlia Murder are headlining this year’s MetalSucks-sponsored Summer Slaughter tour, which also features Whitechapel, Darkest Hour, Dying Fetus, Six Feet Under, Oceano, Fleshgod Apocalypse, As Blood Runs Black, Powerglove, and Within the Ruins.
