DIABOLICAL (Sweden) Ars Vitae CD review

By: Anders Ekdahl

Diabolical might not be the most uncommon name in metal and with all the variations of the same name it might be hard to keep track of them all. This Diabolical is Swedish and this is their new release containing some new songs, some live recordings and a bit more (17 in all). I have to admit that I know nothing about this band other than that they formed in the Swedish town Sundsvall in 1996 and that they play death metal. Just looking at the track list I had my suspicion that this would be a weird record. I was right. Even though I haven’t heard anything by the band before this one it still feels like an in- between record. Maybe this is the perfect introduction for me who’s new to the band. One thing that struck me is that this isn’t death metal in classic Swedish/Gothenburg or Florida style. Maybe more towards what Hypocrisy are doing mixed with an American touch. As an introduction this worked perfectly. I want to keep discovering Diabolical.
