Press Release:

The Black Dahlia Murder does not exactly seem like a band that's easily ritualised. The face-melting Detroit quintet has made a career out of being unpredictable - as well as unhinged, unclassifiable and unrepentant, all in the best possible ways - and now finally make their way to New Zealand's capital city for the first time after two previous appearances on New Zealand shores, on the back of their supporting appearance with Lamb of God in Auckland and their demolition of Australia's Soundwave Festival circuit.

With RITUAL, The Black Dahlia Murder's fifth full-length album, the extreme metal troupe found fertile territory in the wide world of those prescribed practices that would seem verboten to a band that's always marched to the double-time beat of its own drummer. And in doing so it's come up with what frontman Trevor Strnad considers "the most focused Black Dahlia Murder strike of all time." Following up 2009's acclaimed DEFLORATE, which brought The Black Dahlia Murder the highest Billboard chart positions of its 10-year career, RITUAL revels in both conceptual ambition and equally striking musical growth from a band that's pushed itself into more extreme and challenging territory on each successive release. 

Relentlessly tight and polished, and at a level of technical accomplishment transcended only by their masterful and unwavering brutality, The Black Dahlia Murder's debut Wellington appearance will represent a rare opportunity to witness one of global metal's true luminaries in the capital region. Do not miss this must-witness act at the peak of their chaotic powers.
