Detroit metal masters The Black Dahlia Murder have released a stream of a new song entitled “Raped In Hatred By Vines Of Thorn”, which comes from their upcoming album Everblack. The album is slated for release on June 11th and can be pre-ordered here.
In a recent article we posted, vocalist Trevor Strnad describes his memory of seeing the original Evil Dead and how it influenced this track: “I remember the first time I saw Evil Dead… it was at my friend’s birthday party in 7th grade. It was recommended by the same older sister that had gotten us all into punk and heavy metal music… so we knew we were in for the real deal. The movie scared the unholy 13 year old shit out of us… we were terrified. I remember the possessions really affecting me… the way the people would contort and writhe was disturbing. The possessed had that awful way that they sounded when they spoke and howled… pretty insane as well. The vine rape scene was intense… I love the idea of the forest coming alive… so much so that I wrote a song about it many years later.”
