Need a word!

    Okay peeps I need a good describing word for somethin in my story.

    There is a fight going on between demon and demon hunters.  Their blood is black but I want to describe the blood as it gushes out of their bodies. Like 'Midnight black' but I don't want to use the word midnight.

    Anyone else have any good ideas for me? Any help would be appreciated!

      "coal black?" or "mindless black?"  how about what I just found on google:  Legend (1985) - Memorable quotesPrincess Lily: Then still your heart, for you are dear to me. ... Blix: Black as midnight, black as pitch, blacker than the foulest witch. ...???

    Blood darker than tar oozed silently; blood as black as a raven's glistening feathers; inky lacquer oozed; blood as black as ebony.
