The Black Dahlia Murder + Naplam Death Join Forces

Making for one hell of a violent-sounding co-bill, The Black Dahlia Murder and Naplam Death are teaming up for a fall tour that begins Nov. 1 in Farmington, N.M.  

“The Abysmal Predator” excursion takes its name from a combination of the bands’ latest albums.

The Black Dahlia Murder released its seventh studio album, Abysmal, last September. The LP marks the last LP for lead guitarist Ryan Knight before he left the melodic death metal band in early 2016. He’s since been replaced by Brandon Ellis.  

British grindcore band Naplam Death also put out a new LP last year. Apex Predator – East Meat is the band’s 15th studio album.

Ahead of the tour The Black Dahlia Murder supports former Sepultura members Max & Igor Cavalera next month in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. The band also appears at Knotfest Mexico Oct. 15.
