The Black Dahlia Murder released their most recent album Verminous mid-April of this year. The death metal band has been known for seven of their last eight albums making the Billboard Top 200 chart, so Verminous had a lot to live up to. The new album was announced in February of this year along with the release of their single “Verminous.” After the release, the band had plans to do a spring 2020 tour with Municipal Waste and Testament, but due to the coronavirus, had to postpone the spring run.
The postponement of their tour hasn’t stopped them from engaging with their fans amid the current pandemic. They covered Megadeth’s classic staple “Go To Hell” in late August. The rendition was released on the same day as the third installment of the Bill & Ted Face the Music series. Megadeth’s “Go To Hell” was featured in the 1991 movie Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
