The Black Dahlia Murder - Miasma

As much as I hate to say it, this band has gone stale. I have listened to this quite a few times and after a while all the songs just kind of run together and put me into a trance of boredom. Their skills are undeniable, and they do know their metal, but after "Unhallowed" and their demos/Eps this is just plain dissapointing. They haven't seemed to progress at all, but seem intent on re-doing "Unhallowed" instead of experimenting and perhaps adding new elements to their music.

This is in no way a BAD release, but after their last few... this is a let down. I know all you newjack herbs will say lots of stupid crap like "Dude yer an idiot this band Roxors!!!!LOlz" but you can keep your words to yourself, because anyone that has been listening to this band for a while knows I speak the truth.

yeah, after listening to this album a bunch, then listening to unhallowed...no contest. there are a few songs that stand out, such as a vulgar picture and miasma, but the rest are pretty bland and forgettable. I wanted to like it more...

Like I've said many times before, this shit has zero originality. They ditched the small bit of originality they had, ditched the Dissection influence and the Dying Fetus/Carcass influence, and decided to write a direct ripoff of Slaughter Of The Soul. Even the vocals sound more like Lindberg. I can recognize riffs from Under A Serpent Sun and Suicide Nation. I could go on for ages but y'all get my drift.



I was gonna review this but got too lazy... haha.

I think Miasma is a Good Cd, but nowhere near their Debut, demo and EP.
