Florida-based Death Metallers DIABOLIC have issued the following update: "Just got a call from Jerry Mortellaro (ex-DIABOLIC guitarist) tonight letting us know that Bryan Hipp, ex-DIABOLIC guitarist, died last night (Saturday, Oct. 21). Cause of death unknown. Bryan Hipp helped write songs off the DIABOLIC album "Subterranal Magnitude" and helped DIABOLIC complete the ‘Death Metal Massacre’ Metal Maniacs tour 2000, opening for CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOD DETHRONED and HATE ETERNAL. We are posting the song ‘Infernalism’ Bryan Hipp wrote back in 1999. Bryan Hipp also played in BRUTALITY, CRADLE OF FILTH, and in BLASTMASTERS he helped write the song ‘Implemented Digital Control’!!! On stage Bryan Hipp would explode with raging headspins. His talent to create some of the most dark and evil riffs will be missed." DIABOLIC has uploaded a new song, entitled ‘Devour The Subconscious’, to the band’s MySpace page. The track comes off "Shellfire And Tombstones", which was recorded and mixed in July / August 2006 at Diet Of Worms Studio in Seffner, Florida with producer Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez (MORBID ANGEL). The album features artwork by acclaimed Swedish artist Mathias Noren and is tentatively scheduled for release early 2007 through an as-yet-undetermined label.
