The Black Dahlia Murder band was founded in 2000 and was named after Elizabeth Short''s unsolved murder. Judas Priest, Pantera, and Metallica have all influenced them. In 2020, they released Verminous, a song that depicted metal fans as carriers of a cultural conflict.
The only members of the Black Dahlia Murder that remained constant was Brian Eschbach and Trevor. Ritual, their most successful album, reached No. 31 on the US Billboard chart.
Trevor Strnad was a huge fan of fantasy and horror films and considered metal and horror to be a good way to boost bad energy. Despite his conviction, Trevor was only willing to go to record stores and marvel at all the skeletons, dragons, and artwork chevaliers.
He said that the common individual could not recognize the value of his culture or their surroundings. He also believed that people feared the importance of metal fans'' devotion and how it had changed him.
In a recent interview, he stated, "I want my 40s to be fantastic" as well as his desire for The Black Dahlia Murder to last for another 20 years.
The Black Dahlia Murder is one of the first death metal bands I ever heard of, and is a truly unique band that changed the way I saw heavy music at a very young age.
