Biography

Michigan, United States (2000 – present)

The Black Dahlia Murder are a band from Waterford, Michigan, formed in 2000. Their band name is derived from the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short, often referred to as; Black Dahlia, Black Dahlia Murder or BDM.

Current Line-Up:
Trevor Strnad – lead vocals (2000–present)
Brian Eschbach – guitar, (2001–present)
Ryan Knight – guitar (2008–present) (ex-Arsis)
Ryan Williams – bass guitar (2005–present)
Shannon Lucas – drums, percussion (2007–present) (ex-All That Remains)

The Black Dahlia Murder gained their final band line-up in January 2001 and released their first demo entitled What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse, and a four-track EP, A Cold-Blooded Epitaph, the latter of which the group released on its own Lovelost Records. After appearing in concerts such as the Milwaukee Metal Fest, The Black Dahlia Murder signed to Metal Blade Records in 2003.

The band played in Ozzfest 2005 and also participated in the Sounds of the Underground tour in 2006, which encompasses both the United States and Canada. They also played at Wacken Open Air in 2007.

Current bassist Bart Williams left his former band, Detroit’s Today I Wait, to tour with the Black Dahlia Murder. After touring with the band on their co-headlining gig with Throwdown and their European dates with Liar, he joined the group full-time, replacing former bassist David Lock. Frontman Trevor Strnad said that Lock was fired for incompetency. Williams was one of two engineers (the other being Walls of Jericho’s Mike Hasty) on the band’s first full-length album, Unhallowed.
