Death Metal - United States
DIABOLIC formed January 1997 with the intent to become extreme metal elite! This intense fury of music was unleashed immediately through relentless live performance and the release of the landmark demo City of the Dead. This highly successful demo, described by critics as "the best death metal demo ever", established an enormous international underground following for DIABOLIC.
The debut full-length album Supreme Evil received a multitude of excellent reviews and defined DIABOLIC as masters of dynamics. Hyper-blasting fury contrasts slow heavy intensity within strong song structures filled with screaming lead guitars and venomous vocal summonings!!
DIABOLIC continued the mastery of creating dynamic extreme metal with the 2nd full-length album Subterraneal Magnitude. Produced by Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez, this over the top destructive force destroyed barriers and expanded the unique DIABOLIC sound to dizzying new extremes!!
Extensive touring soon followed, including 6 major U.S. festivals, and the DEATH METAL MASSACRE 2000 tour with CANNIBAL CORPSE, which sold out venues across North America for 6 weeks!! DIABOLIC were also honoured to tour with death metal pioneers MORBID ANGEL.
DIABOLIC surpasses all earlier releases with their latest offering Vengeance Ascending!! Once again produced by Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez (this time teaming up with producer Steve Wright), this devastating attack redefines extreme metal in a relentless onslaught of anger, vengeance, and victory!!!
