THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Shouter Trevor Strnad verkündete in einem Interview mit MTV.com, dass das neue Album den Titel "Nocturnal" tragen wird. Weiterhzn beschrieb er das neue Material folgendermaßen:
"Nothing drastically changed. It's just more tasteful, and some of this new stuff will be faster than the last record. There's going to be a lot more soloing than we've done previously. This record's a bit more European-sounding, I think. More so than we already were, if you can imagine that. The solo stuff has a black metal-ish flavor to it. We messed around with that a little bit previously, but some of the songs have a major DISSECTION kind of feel to them."
