DIABOLICAL IMPERIUM
DIABOLICAL IMPERIUM
The Sacred Lie (Vinyl)
(Deathscent Records)
36:08min

If you crawl through the dark, deep caverns of this website you will find my previous review on the CD version done by Obscure Domain Records in 2013 whereas now Germany’s Deathscent Records present its first ever release with a proper vinyl edition of “The Sacred Lie”. Visually a massive upgrade can already be noted down as a big fat plus due to showing nothing less than a classic Axel Herrmann (ASPHYX, MORGOTH, UNLEASHED…) cover whereas musically the German trio-fixion delivers a straight forward, driving and focused slab of unholy Death Metal inspired by the likes of IMMOLATION, MORBID ANGEL, DEICIDE, VITAL REMAINS. While not performing in the same technical league as the aforementioned acts, DIABOLICAL IMPERIUM certainly know how to churn out concise and powerful songs every lover of recent underground gems in this field should call his own. Recorded, mixed and produced by Mersus (GOSPEL OF THE HORNS, ex - D666…), soundwise this is an absolutely flawless affair, kicks butt, does not sound like being nailed down in a rotten cave and comes along with a sweet bottom end and brick-heavy punch. Especially, in such a nice vinyl edition I feel compelled to recommend this beast! Check out a tune here. Visit the following sites to order a copy: www.van-records.de or www.hrrshop.de or PM to Krugi / www.facebook.com/deathscentrecords. More info here: www.facebook.com/diabolicalImperium. And remember: Only Death Metal is real!
