Diocleitan - Doom Cult review.
October 10, 2010, 11:40:50 AM
In an effort to continue to post forward thinking content ;


One of the most well known of the close-knit and virile New Zealand death/black scene, Kiwi act Diocletian‘s full length falls and fits clearly within the war metal sound as was pioneered by Blasphemy, and taken to a more nihilist, apocalyptic climax by fellow Canadians, Conqueror and their suceeding act, Revenge.

Structurally, the songs of Diocletian adhere to the musical formulas that define Canadian death/black metal hybrids, but the production whilst still raw, is not as lo-fi and has more streamlined engineering on the guitars and drums, with the bass guitar playing, an unlikely rarity in such high intensity music, thankfully audible. Barked, roaring vocals commonplace within this niche of metal predominate ‘Doom Cult’. The tonal quality of the guitars whilst not trebly are less bass-heavy than what you would expect from an Revenge or Sacramentary Abolishment record, is of enough clarity to possess a harmonic distinction that has a similar quality to a less Norse-influenced Demoncy, and even draws a parallel to the first full length by Profanatica. To add to this, a similarity that vaguely resembles the ‘Cut Your Flesh And Worship Satan’ album by Antaeus is present, in that nuances of distortion and feedback, samples of a warlike nature are used to build and intensity the framework of the album.

Along with a savage execution and great understanding of the pattern language that informs this style of music, Diocletian put forth an excellent full length.

I've also heard legends of their live rituals being truly hellish.

I like the vocals, it reminds me of War Command(blood upon the altar) - Blasphemy. That hellishly demonic incomprehensible chanting!

Wordy review, excellent release. Too many comparisons leave too little to the imagination, and too much to the posturing of expectation.

You'd better get used to that.

Then you better get used to the dissection of your method.

Not talking about deconstruction Mr. Elemental, but instead dissection of the needless elements. It is just a commentary on poor review style, not synthesized meaning.

You are correct, and my trigger statement was in error.

Trigger statement being the implied separation of terminology when in reality the context was supplemental.

It's not my method. I posted that review, clearly, from Deathmetal.org. There is nothing wrong with it anyway. I take it we haven't looked over at the DLA much?

Has this been uploaded into the Audiofile forum yet? I'm curious to give it a listen based on this review.

Ah, my mistake then.

Not really sure what to answer to that, but aesthetically, it sounds (looks) brilliant.
All I'm saying, chv, is that it would be nice if you translated those brilliant statements to commonspeak.

The sleight of hand confusion in my terminology and my misuse of dissection and confusion of deconstruction.

Once more with ultracommonspeak, "We were talking about the same concept whilst I was not seeing it, therefor, I retracted my meaning of going into a different directi0n."
