Detroit's The Black Dahlia Murder actually sound like they should live in Scandinavia, from whence originates much of the frenetic brand of death and black metal that inspires them. Formed in 2001, the group followed their six-song 'What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse' demo with the four-track 'A Cold-Blooded Epitaph E.P.,' which was released on their own Lovelost Records. With a number of acclaimed concerts appearances like the Milwaukee Metal Fest already under their belts, the group then signed with Metal Blade in 2003 and were soon recording their debut album 'Unhallowed.' The Canadian sextet Three Inches of Blood evokes a throwback to heavy metal's youthful 1980s heyday. The band's Iron Maiden-like galloping riffs and solos are speeded up to thrash metal tempos, topped with "Dungeons & Dragons" styled lyrics and titles such as 'Destroy the Orcs' and 'Ride Darkhorse, Ride.' Their latest is 'Advance and Vanquish.' Hate Eternal features Erik Rutan from Ripping Corpse and Morbid Angel.
