The Black Dahlia Murder Stream New ‘Grind ‘Em All’ Covers EP

It’s widely known that The Black Dahlia Murder is a solidified death metal band with their music usually showcasing shredding metal riffs and devilish growls. But sometimes it’s cool to show versatility in changing your entire sound, proving that you don’t have to be stapled to one specific genre.

This is most certainly the case with TBDM’s newest release as they decided to go full punk rock with a covers EP entitled Grind ‘Em All. The release consists of three in-your-face punk rock renditions of songs from Left For Dead, Gyga, and Sedition.
