Despite being The Black Dahlia Murder's most well recognized song, "What A Horrible Night To Have A Curse" does not appear on the Detroit quintets debut demo, which bears its name. What does, however, is the most varied and arguably the most entertaining collection of songs the band has made. It's very much unlike any other TBDM release. The production is very solid for a demo, and the drum tones' raw sound fits perfectly with Trevor Strnad's frenzied shrieks. There is a distinct metalcore influence heard here, but with an energetic punk edge to it that comes off as incredibly fun. There are also moments that you will not hear on any other record from the band, such as the subdued, acoustic guitar break in "The Middle Goes Down" and the clean vocals in "This Ain't No F*cking Love Song". Truly, a must listen for any fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, and a very enjoyable listen for fans of energetic melodeath.
