Since the release of fifth album "Neogenesis" via ViciSolum Productions last September, Swedish titans Diabolical have been campaigning across Europe razing every city in their wake.
Now the band has added a third chapter to the Neogenesis Tour that will start on the 10th of April. Swedish colleagues Souldrainer and Hatescript will join forces with Diabolical on this tour, which will consist of dates in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and Austria.
Vocalist and guitarist Sverker Widgren comments: "The response for 'Neogenesis’ since its release has been overwhelming. I had never expected the scene to embrace ’Neogenesis’ the way it has done, and it makes me very excited about this tour. The fact that we are re-visiting areas we enjoy a lot and that we once again are joining forces with Souldrainer only adds to my excitement. It’s gonna be a great journey!"

"We just started to record a couple of more songs at Empire Studio and we will record about 3 songs at a time and let you download it, burn it, give it away and bang your heads to it cuz it's more important to let you hear our new material than wait for a label to sell it to you. We don't need a label to serve you a professional production anyway! In true DIY spirit we will distribute the songs, mainly the digital fashion, but you will also be able to buy a physical product if you want something to put in your hands. Of course to a reasonable price and not the fantasy prices record label would charge!

We hope to get a new spot really soon. Horns up and see you out there another time! fuck.."
Swedish death metal band, Souldrainer, have posted a new demo song, Fed By Fire, on their MySpace page.

Swedish death metallers, Souldrainer, issue the following update on their MySpace page:
"Hello friends! It was a while ago now.. We have been busting our asses with new material and today we recorded seven new butt kicking songs. We have left Mascot Records and now we are searching for a new label that will satisfy our needs. These songs are made as demo versions and will be used in the search for a label. Listening to the results from todays efforts we can only say it's really awesome how the recording turned out. It's been worth waiting for! wow! It sounds like we are moving towards a heavier sound (like we weren't heavy enough before huh?), more aggressive but yet in a Souldrainer-stylish way. Of course we still have the majestic foundation. Add a touch of evil on that and you are getting close to the new sound. Man, it's impossible to describe the new material with words, you gotta hear it - and you will!"

"We do have a backup plan but Tony is our first choice so we hope that we will be able to solve this."
"More info soon."
