We have now uploaded the full track "Into Oblivion", which is taken from "Neogenesis".

We have also just launched a minisite for Neogenesis. The video can be viewed there:


"Neogenesis" will be released by ViciSolum Productions on the 27th of September 2013.

2013.04.09 Neogenesis Tour - Second Chapter - Special Line-Up

For the second chapter of the Neogenesis tour DIABOLICAL will perform with a unique line-up, with Carl handling the lead vocals and good friend of the band Harris Sopovic from Warheim filling in on guitar.

This is a result of Sverker not being able to make it for this tour. He has been in the hospital the past 9 days and even if he is expected to get back home soon, he still has a period of rehabilitation at home before being back at 100%.

Sverker comments:

"I just want to say that I'm sorry about not being able to make it for the second chapter of the Neogenesis tour. For 10 or 15 years I have never backed out of a gig for any reason, even less a tour. I've played under the worst conditions you can imagine, and I have played when being very sick on many occasions (the same goes for all the guys in the band). Everybody knows that I'm the last one to back out. But this time it is unfortunately unavoidable.

It feels bad as I had looked forward to this trip and the places we'll play and people we'll meet. But at the same time I feel very proud to be in a band that has the foundation to pull it off and hold the banner high without me.

Make sure you attend to the gigs, as this is the first and only time you will see the band with this line-up. It's gonna be some awesome nights!"

2013.02.27 Major announcement

The new album NEOGENESIS is not an album - it is a book.

There is more to the new album NEOGENESIS than just a collection of songs. NEOGENESIS is also a novel telling the story of the end of the world and what lies beyond. The book is written by guitarist Carl Stjärnlöv and each chapter of the book is represented by a song on the album.

Learn more in the new episode of our studio diary!

2013.02.10 Neogenesis - Artwork and release date revealed

"Neogenesis" - the fifth studio album of Diabolical will be released on the 19th of April.

Guitarist Carl comments on the artwork: "Originally I wanted someone else to do the artwork for us this time since I have done it for the last two releases and I also wanted to focus on the recording. However, in the end we did not find what we were looking for with any artist, so I once again took on the task. I wanted to make something that reflected the philosophical and spiritual aspects of this album and I had a vision of what I wanted. I discussed it with Pär and he and I realised the idea by him making a painting which I mixed with photos of all of us in the band, so what you see on the cover artwork is actually a band photo with all of us combined into one face blended with Pär's painting. On top of that I added a lot of symbols that are significant to the concept of Neogenesis."

2012.12.31 Neogenesis Tour - First Chapter - announced!

DIABOLICAL will tour Europe in March in support of the new album "Neogenesis", which will be released early 2013. This is the first chapter of the Neogenesis tour, and it will be joined by Souldrainer and Warheim. The tour will cover Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany. More dates will be announced soon.

2012.07.23 NEOGENESIS Pre-production teaser released

We have released a five-and-a-half minute long teaser for you to get a glimpse of what's to come. The recording is well under way and the reults are very pleasing so far to say the least. However, it will take a while before we can share any of the actual album material, so we figured we can share some of our demo / pre-production material with all of you out there. I think it will be obvious to everyone now why we are very thrilled about the new album and it is our hope that you can join us in the excitement.

2012.07.03 The new album is entitled NEOGENESIS

We have started the recording sessions for our fifth album entitled "NEOGENESIS".

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.

We 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.

We will continue the recording now at the infamous Necromorbus Studio facilities, with vocalist and guitarist Sverker Widgren producing once again.

2012.05.16 Diabolical enters the studio!

We are entering Necromorbus Studio in June to begin the recording sessions that are supposed to lead up to the fifth DIABOLICAL album. More than enough material has been written over the past year, so we are right now in process of figuring out what material to leave out. We will try to keep you posted here on the development. The album will be considered finished as soon as it's the GOAT.

2011.08.15 15 Years Anniversary Tour

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.

2010.09.15 Linköping-spelningen uppskjuten

Spelningen 25 september i Linköping har blivit uppskjuten till ett ännu så länge obekräftat datum. Anledningen till att spelningen flyttas är att arrangören, enligt vad vi fått höra, gjort förluster på div arrangemang tidigare i sommar, och valde att dra sig ur pga detta. Men vi planerar köra på ett annat datum senare i höst med en annan arrangör.

2010.08.30 New bass player, upcoming shows

2008.03.21. Booking

After too long off the road, we are preparing for some shows again. We are considering all options right now, and concert organizers shouldn't hesitate getting in touch. During the past year(s) we have turned down a lot of offers coming from concert- and tour organizers, for many reasons not worth mentioning here, but this is about to change now.
