Best Black Dahlia Murder Songs

The Black Dahlia Murder is one of he best death metal bands in history. These are their best songs in the rightful order.

The Top Ten

1 What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse

What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse!

Best thing in my ears

Der beste Song!

2 Everything Went Black

Everything about this song embodies TBDM. Don't get me wrong, WAHNTHAC is a decent song, but their best? Not even close. This isn't even my favorite song by them. But it's their best.

Melodic and brutal

3 I Will Return

That bridge riff...oh my god yes. Cryonics!

Amazing solo

A perfect song

I love Deflorate lml

4 Deathmask Divine

It's not often you see a love song in death metal. But this certainly is one, in a sick, twisted, and beautiful way

The story and how papa trevor gets in the head of Count Carl Von Coser is amazing. He finds a way to empathize with the pyschopath, along with it being from the best american blackened melodeath album of all time.

One of the best tbdm solo

5 Moonlight Equilibrium

Musically their greatest work ever, killer riff and awesome drumming plus vocals perfect, this song defines the black dahlia murder music. - WMawia1991

Out of everything I've heard from The Black Dahlia Murder, I haven't come across anything that's even close to this song, it's just amazing.

6 Statutory Ape
7 Carbonized in Cruciform

This is perfection! Insane drumming from Shannon that perfectly supports and enhances the melodic, yet agressive guitar riffs. Trevor's vocal is very well harmonized with the melody and song structure. To top all that, the solo is very melodic and intricate, adding to the overall quality of the song without disrupting it.

8 Funeral Thirst

This song represents the start of a sound that progressed through all of their music.

9 Miasma

This is the best song, The Black Dahlia Murder has. This is my favorite band and this I think is there best song. It just never quits, never really slows, but it keeps the melodic riffs through out.

10 Into the Everblack

The Contenders

11 A Vulgar Picture
12 Black Valor
13 Necropolis

They need to play this live more often. The opening riff is so much fun

14 Raped in Hatred by Vines of Thorn

Their best song by far and one of the best Melo Death songs ever written.

Such an underrated song in my opinion

15 Receipt

TBDM's magnum opus, absolutely InSaNe drumming, killer riffs, and bone-chilling lyrics. This is the epitome of death metal

16 In Hell is Where She Waits for Me
17 Nocturnal

How is this song not on here? It's brutal, and the guitar song is epic!

18 The Blackest Incarnation
19 Goat of Departure
20 Nightbringers

Title track of their latest and in my opinion best album. Literally every song could be high on this list.

Nice composed, hooked me on my first time

21 To a Breathless Oblivion
22 Map of Scars


23 Blood in the Ink

I love every song by them and had a hard time choosing between this, Necropolis, and Everything Went Black, but this comes out on top. I love the symphonic elements. Ryan Knight's solo in this is one of my favorites of all time. It just stands out from their other work, it's so unique.

Criminally underrated song

24 The Window
25 Unhallowed
26 The Raven
27 Dave Goes to Hollywood
28 Vlad, Son of the Dragon
29 Matriarch

This is their magnum opus right here. Somehow it's not even the most popular on the album, but this is the greatest song they've ever done, even over Everything Went Black. The day this dropped, my said that I had listened to it 48 times. In one day. A few years later, it's now up to 867

Yea, Nightbringers is a good song, but this one beats out everything else on the album. Classic TBDM, everything you could want from them - catchy but really heavy, brutal lyrics, and more technical than most anything else they've written.
This album as a whole though may be their best. Nocturnal will always have a special place in my heart, but Nightbringers is incredible.

30 On Stirring Seas of Salted Blood

First riff is probably the sickest of all time

31 Widowmaker
32 Of Darkness Spawned
33 Phantom Limb Masturbation
34 I'm Charming
35 Every Rope a Noose

Solo is amazing

36 Christ Deformed
37 A Shrine to Madness
38 Threat Level No. 3

The riff, the vocals, the epic climax.

39 A Grave Robber's Work
40 Seppuku

Not too well known because it's a bonus track. God knows why though, it's one of the best tracks they ever wrote! - PrayForVillains

41 Contagion
42 Kings of the Nightworld
