Diabolical Reveals Album Title And Tracklisting

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 5th July 2012 by izaforestspirit

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 band entered Necromorbus Studio in June and have already recorded the basics for the whole album. The full “NEOGENESIS” track listing:

1. Into Oblivion
2. Metamorphosis
3. Oracle
4. Ex
5. World in Silence
6. Reincarnation of the Damned
7. Fields of Nihil
8. Dialogue with the Dead
9. Wolves’ Choir
10. The Age to Come
11. Humanitas

“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.” Carl concludes.

The band continues recording now at the infamous Necromorbus Studio facilities, with vocalist and guitarist Sverker Widgren producing once again.

The band is continuously reporting from the album production via their studio diary on youtube, second report being posted yesterday at:

Barren Earth – THE RAIN BEGINS Video Now Online

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 2nd March 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

‘The Rains Begin’, the debut video from Barren Earth‘s new masterwork, ‘The Devil’s Resolve‘, is now finally complete. The video was directed by Ville Rissanen at Obscure Entertainment, who has also previously worked with fellow countrymen, Insomnium.

Mixed by Dan Swanö (Opeth/Katatonia) at Unisound, ‘The Devil’s Resolve’ continues with all the trademarks one has come to associate with Barren Earth: brutal riffs, gloomy growls, majestic melodies, as well as acoustic and progressive passages. But this time the band has delved even deeper, and takes their music to the extremes. What was brutal on the first release is now tripled and what was proggy is also tripled.

Audio & video clips, including a new video interview with bassist Olli Pekka-Laine can be found here.

The Devil’s Resolve’ is to be released March 12th on Peaceville Records on CD & vinyl.
