The Black Dahlia Murder’s lead vocalist Trevor Strnad dropped by Seton Hall University’s WSOU 89.5 FM on Feb. 24 to participate in an “DJ Takeover” of the iconic heavy metal radio station’s airwaves. During his 90 minutes on the air, Strnad played some of his favorite songs by other artists, shared insights about the band’s creative process, and told stories about life on the road and in the recording studio. Strnad also discussed The Black Dahlia Murder’s latest single,Verminous,” and the group’s new album, which will be released on April 17. Joining Strnad on the air was WSOU DJ Val Petrarca and music director Nick Polis.

“Having one of heavy metal’s most unique and powerful vocalists in our studios was a real treat for our listeners,” said station music director Nick Polis. “Hearing Trevor’s perspectives on heavy metal music was amazing and The Black Dahlia Murder’s forthcoming album will thrill their fans.”
