The Black Dahlia Murder has been a huge name in metal for quite a few years now, and given the recent rash of every band having their own beer, I'm a little surprised it took the band this long to have their own. The Black Dahlia Murder has teamed up with Weyerbacher to create a Rye Pale Ale titled Warborn, whose label was created by Warhammer 40k and Bolt Thrower artist John Sibbick.
"We're extremely excited to pair with Weyerbacher in the creation of Warborn Rye Pale Ale for our appearance at Decibel Metal and Beer Fest Los Angeles," The Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad says. "Named after the closing track of our third album, 'Nocturnal', Warborn is sure to be a bona fide hit amongst even the most discerning metalhead palette in attendance. The nostalgic Bolt Thrower-esque artwork was originally commissioned by the band in 2009 for a limited run of Warborn-themed long sleeve shirts that were sold exclusively on a European festival tour, and has triumphantly returned here almost ten years later to grace each can of this exquisite craft beer of the same name. The original painting was expertly handled by one John Sibbick, who constructed the iconic futuristic war scene that adorned the first edition of Warhammer 40k and subsequently Bolt Thrower's 'Realm of Chaos' album.
Painstakingly aged to delicious perfection on white oak and seasoned in death metal glory, Warborn will emerge victorious!"
The Black Dahlia Murder will play the Decibel Metal & Beer Festival on December 1 and 2 in Los Angeles, which you can read all about here.
