We Are Diabolical is taken off Diabolical upcoming sixth studio album Eclipse, out February 15 next year The blackened death metal band Diabolical are premiering their new single and it`s a song that sounds just as daunting as the title suggests. Right from the opening you get the feeling that the doomsday has come with a swarm of fallen angels painting the sky black. A contrasting middle part follows and prepares you for a final raging battle towards the end of the song.
Guitarist Carl Stjärnlöv says «We Are Diabolical is the opening track of the new album and it sets the tone for it, grand, intense, ominous and dark. Thematically it puts forth what is at the core of the concept of this album, it’s supposed to raise questions and provoke the listener».
More than twenty years after their formation in northern Sweden, innovative death/black metal hybrid Diabolical proves to be more vital than ever and puts forth Eclipse, a concept album reflecting on the dark side of humanity that forces the listener to explore his own diabolical side.
The album is a tour de force with spitting musical and aesthetic complexity swirling around a dense soundscape of excellently distilled and refined ideas, altogether forming a rare display of musical craftsmanship equaled by very few contemporary metal bands. With nine nice songs, Eclipse presents Diabolical as a mature and sophisticated band probably on the rise to new heights?!
