It had been his life’s ambition to appear on your show.”

The metal band from Michigan was founded in 2000 and named after the horrific 1947 unsolved murder of actress Elizabeth Smart. Following a series of self-published EPs, the band signed with their longstanding label Metal Blade Records, who issued all nine of the Black Dahlia Murder’s studio albums, including their most recent, Verminous, released in 2020. Strnad’s death was also confirmed by Metal Blade Records on Wednesday.

At the time of Strnad’s death, the death metal band had plans to tour later this year, including a May 20 appearance at the Welcome to Rockville Festival in Daytona Beach, Florida.

History

Miasma, Formation, and Unhallowed ( 2001–2006 )

In 2006, the Black Dahlia Murder took place. Eschbach, former bassist Ryan Williams, former lead guitarist John Kempainen, Strnad, and former drummer Pierre Langlois are seen from left to right.

The Black Dahlia Murder was formed in late 2000, and the final band lineup was formed in January 2001. The group issued a demo called What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse, as well as a four-track EP called A Cold-Blooded Epitaph, all on Love lost Records. The Black Dahlia Murder was signed to Metal Blade Records in 2003 after performing at shows such as the Milwaukee Metal Fest.

To tour with the Black Dahlia Murder, bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams departed his previous band, Detroit’s Today I Wait. He joined the band full-time after performing with them on their co-headlining tour with Throwdown and their European gigs with Liar. He replaced former bassist David Lock. The lock was sacked due to incompetence, according to frontman Trevor Strnad. On the band’s debut full-length album, Unhallowed, Williams was one of two engineers (the other being Mike Hasty of Walls of Jericho).

Miasma, the band’s second album, debuted at No. 118 on the Billboard 200 on July 12, 2005.

After touring with Miasma, drummer Zach Gibson and Pierre Langlois departed the band. While Gibson moved on to join Abigail Williams, Langlois departed the band to pursue a more stable lifestyle, and the band’s hunt for a new drummer came to an end when they met Shannon Lucas, formerly of All That Remains. The band performed at Ozzfest 2005.
