Supreme Evil
(The Plague / Hammerheart Records)

“Supreme Evil” is (still) the one and only full length by these four longhaired maniacs (the excellent “City Of The Dead” MCD is just a re-issue of DIABOLIC’s legendary demo with two bonus tracks) and features classy Florida Death Metal, totally uncompromising and brutal as fuck, with lots of intensity, MORBID ANGEL – like leads and an overall blasphemic approach. Apart from the rather unnecessary Black Metal parts in ‘View With Abhorrence’ and ‘Wicked Inclination’ this is pure and totally crushing Death Metal the way it was meant to be performed. Considering the short playing time of the album it’s too bad that this re-issue doesn’t feature the aforementioned MCD as a bonus, but at least it comes as a nice digipak now. To me, DIABOLIC is without any doubts one of the strongest representatives of the new generation of American Death Metal and a big hope for the years to come!
