Swedish apocalyptic death metallers DIABOLICAL are set to enter the studio to record their as-of-yet untitled fifth album. The band has already started pre-production and will begin recording in June. “We have more than enough material written and pre-produced already, and we are confident that this album will be a milestone for DIABOLICAL as a band and for Metal as a genre.” says guitarist Carl Stjärnlöv. The recording will take place at infamous Necromorbus Studio facilities, with vocalist and guitarist Sverker Widgren producing again. A release date is yet to be announced. “Time is never a parameter for us. What we do is beyond time and space.” adds Stjärnlöv. The band will post a series of video studio diaries as work on the album progresses. Episode 1 is online at this location.
This album will follow up DIABOLICAL’s 2011 release Ars Vitae, which featured nine live songs which chronicled the band’s career, four new studio tracks and a remastered version of their sold-out debut EP Deserts of Desolation. Ars Vitae was released in North America by Abyss Records and is still available at www.officialabyssrecords.com.
