DIABOLICAL Announce European Dates‏ TO Celebrate 15 Years of Death Metal

DIABOLICAL will celebrate 15 years of existence by doing some selected European dates in September. Each date will see different local support bands and special guests. Considering the nature of the tour, the band will do more old material than usual, covering all five official records released until now.

 “We see this partly as a celebration of the 15 years that was, but mainly as an introduction of the 15 years that are to come. It is a great opportunity to pick up older material, and revisit some good and bad moments from the past. Looking back is only enjoyable to some…” says founding member Sverker Widgren.

DIABOLICAL have during the last decade and a half constantly been progressing, refusing to do the expected. Following the success of the second full-length album A Thousand Deaths (2002) the band toured Europe several times in 2002-03 with AMON AMARTH, VOMITORY and DEFLESHED among others, co-headlined Open Hell festival (2002) and Kaltenbach Open Air (2003) and played several other festivals as well. The albums were later re-released in South America, and both albums were released in the USA as well.

In 2008 DIABOLICAL returned with full force and delivered a milestone in their discography; taking their innovative death metal a huge step further with The Gallery of Bleeding Art. The album received brilliant reviews and was followed by a two small but very successful headline tours though Europe.

In November 2010 DIABOLICAL released the single Eye, and January 2011 their latest CD entitled Ars Vitae, containing 17 tracks from different parts of the band’s career. Also, the CD contained a full live concert that had never been released before, and a re-mastered version of the Deserts of Desolation MCD.

Having been a part of the death metal scene for 15 years, and releasing albums for over a decade, DIABOLICAL still manages to put out some of their best material up to date on Ars Vitae, proving that the band still progresses and has a great future ahead of them.
