Guest review by

The Black Dahlia Murder's Deflorate is a good album. It is raw, chunky, and not afraid to flaunt its sloppiness--three aspects that a metalhead is inclined to find appealing. It isn't, at any moment, boring, and it certainly holds nothing but a sarcastic contempt for the austere. It does, to some extent, remind one of the death metal days of old, in which fun was supposed to be had with inherently unfunny subjects (an outlook that seems like a rarity today, especially among melodeath bands). But let's not get sidetracked here. My point is that Deflorate is a solid, refreshing melodeath album, and fans of melodic death metal (indeed, of extreme metal in general) should definitely give it a listen. Don't make the mistake yours truly made and dismiss the band solely on their popularity and fondness for farts.

  Easily the biggest surprise for me from 2009 and probably the best metalcore-tinged melodeath album ever. Necropolis, Christ Deformed and I Will Return are especially good.

Rating: 8 Very fast album, not as good as Nocturnal, but it's still pretty good in it's own right.

Rating: 7 Decent album by TBDM's standards, but I can't help but feel this is too overshadowed by the great "Nocturnal".
