Diocletian Disband 6 replies

New Zealand's well-known Ross Bay Cult affiliates and war metal band, Diocletian, have officially announced the cessation of their existence, as they put it. The band released three-full lengths and numerous splits, EPs and a demo in their eleven years as a band.

To new and old fans alike, its the end of an era for Diocletian, we cease to exist from this day on. 2004-2015ce.
