Diabolical have been around since 1996, veterans of seventeen years of death metal madness. Their new record Neogenesis is a rager, bombastic and brutal, reaching out and touching the soul with a neverending flow of hatred and power, the kind of thing that will rip your heart out and drown it under layers of riffs, and oftentimes symphonic madness. Yet do not think Diabolical have lost their sheer hatred, Neogenesis has plenty of that, they bust out of the gate and grab your skull, crushing it within a grasp made of undiluted liquid steel.

The thing is, Diabolical have always been a little different, for years they have been honing a trademark sound that will keep you going for hours on end. Neogenesis is their fifth release and the most polished to date. More than this, this is a concept record telling a powerful and moving story, it is Diabolicals most rounded work to date. This is not just an album but a novel, and the immensity of the travail, this record goes beyond, something greater than what many of their contemporaries could ever dare to do. Diabolical may have always been off the beaten path, but now they are back with a vengeance, proving their brilliance once again, triumphing over the listener with sheer death metal magic.

In conclusion, Neogenesis is one of the most impressive records I have ever heard. Not just from a musical standpoint (Which is on its own impressive) but from the sheer amount of work that must have gone into this record. It seems like we'll be hearing a lot more from these guys in the near future, the members focus seems to be back on the band and Diabolicals star is rising once more. Crafted by musical virtuoso's into a glorious overture to the neverending magic of death metal. I for one am very excited to see where these guys go next, their sound is passionate and unique, who knows where they could go in the future?
