In anticipation of their seventh full-length album, Abysmal, The Black Dahlia Murder have graced fans with a brand new ripper titled “Vlad, Son Of The Dragon.” Stream it below, and if you’re a fan, pick up a pre-order here.

While I’ve always been somewhat indifferent to the Michigan outfit’s thrashy brand of death metal, I firmly believe that their latest single is a huge step in the right direction.

Game & Drake Swap Bars About The Realities Of Fame On “100″

The Game and Drake just delivered a new single that is destined to take hip-hop by storm in no time at all.

Remember when Drake was spotted dropping a few unreleased bars to a sold out Detroit crowd late last month? That so-called freestyle was actually an unannounced preview for the Toronto native’s latest collaboration with California heavyweight The Game. “100″ finds the two top shelf emcees swapping bars that address the snakes in the grass who think they slink by unseen, as well as the reality of pursuing your dreams in a time where most feel unable to even …
