Swedish apocalyptic death metallers DIABOLICAL have started the recording sessions for their fifth album – entitled Neogenesis.
Guitarist Carl Stjärnlöv explains the album title: “Apart from being a physiological term, the title ‘Neogenesis’ translates to ‘new beginning’. The word originates from Greek and Latin and it marks a new beginning for DIABOLICAL in many ways. Furthermore the title has a much more profound significance to the theme and concept of this album. The drum tracks laid down are amazing, and we are all very excited about continuing to work on ‘Neogenesis.’ There are definitely some new flavors to our sound, and most importantly,
the song material of ‘Neogenesis’ is by far the greatest we’ve done.”
The band entered Necromorbus Studio in June to begin the recording process for Neogenesis. Guitarist/vocalist Sverker Widgren, who produced the band’s 2008 release The Gallery Of Bleeding Art, is once again handling production duties. DIABOLICAL has been chronicling the album’s progress with an online studio diary. Episode two is posted at this location.
