History & Biography
The Sundsvall-based band was formed in 1999 from the ashes of Helvete, which was formed five years earlier. Its debut was its first release. It was recorded at Greencastle Studio Records. A single split with Angst was issued in 2005. In 2015, Black metal band Diabolicum returned after 14 years and the latest album The Dark Blood Rising. The Swedish band’s third record, La Pazuzu (The Abyss Of The Shadows), featured nine tracks.


With a name like Diabolicum and expressions of extremity aplenty Sweden's Diabolicum might have seemed like a good bet. There was the stylish digipak, mention of an uncensored video and the promise of a a limited edition of 666. What do we get instead? A pseudo-industrial band that moonlights in techno, a cheap footage that comes across as WWF meets Mosad and little else. 1.5 itself refers to the release being one of those stop-gap odds and ends EPs bands put out. Diabolicum is all style and no substance and if you believe that's worth your money, then get in touch for I have an Enron share or two to sell you.
