Trivia / The Black Dahlia Murder

  • Old Shame: They'd prefer that you not remember their first demo.
  • One of Us: Despite their genre of choice, they're quite fond of brutal death metal (they even did a few songs showcasing the style, and Everblack is highly influenced by the genre), and Strnad is also a big fan of horror movies and literature.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Ryan Knight and Alan Cassidy.
  • They Just Didn't Care: Strnad, Eschbach, and Kempainen felt this way about Zach Gibson. David Lock was merely a bad case of The Slacker and didn't practice enough to be able to consistently play his own material, and they made it clear that it broke their heart to have to get rid of him. Gibson, on the other hand, was apparently extremely sloppy, knew about it, and didn't give a shit either way, and they got sick of his extremely laissez-faire attitude towards band matters real fast and indicated that hiring him was a mistake and that he would not be missed.
  • Throw It In: Normally you'd think that the music videos for their songs would be high-budget horror mini-movies. Their music videos, most of the time, focus on the band members' free time while touring. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Subverted with the video "Everything Went Black". It actually is a high-budget horror mini-movie. See the entry for Shout-Out.
