Diocletian Rise from the Ashes

2019-06-13 by TheSpirit CONTRIBUTOR | 19 Comments
New Zealand based war metal conjurers Diocletian have just announced their upcoming fourth album Amongst the Flames of a Burning God, which not only comes out five years after their last effort Gesundrian, but also three years after their reformation in 2016.

It will be the first album featuring the group's new line-up, which consists of scene veterans who've performed in Black Witchery, Pseudogod, and Dawn of Azazel amongst other renowned black/death metal acts.

The band released the following statement in regards in the record:

"DIOCLETIAN, always reigning within the echelons of the predatory/apex of the extreme unrelenting war metal movement have resurged with founder/guitarist Atrociter unearthing the band with a new formation and sense of purpose. The result being the New Zealand unit’s most primal, barbarous, unhinged yet remorselessly calculated and violent album “Amongst The Flames Of A Burning God”.

Five years since their acclaimed “Gesundrian” LP (Osmose Productions) which saw the New Zealand war machine reach a certain summit, “Amongst The Flames Of A Burning God” resurges the DIOCLETIAN sound canvas with a newfound sense of ferocity, rawness, and artistry all while regressing back to the impressions and atmosphere witnessed on their debut “Doom Cult” LP (Invictus Productions). To achieve this regeneration, the new DIOCLETIAN lineup aligning with Atrociter consists of vocalist/bassist R.W., drummer E. M., guitarist M. H., and none other than vocalist Impurath (of notorious Black Witchery fame) completing the stronghold.
"Amongst The Flames Of A Burning God" is dedicated to the memory of the all mighty Tregenda.


In addition, the band has released the first single from the album "Repel the Attack", which can be heard below.




Amongst the Flames of a Burning God is set for an August 16th release.
