Los Angeles-based thrash metallers Diabology are on the cusp of releasing their thrilling sophomore album, Father of Serpents, this Friday via Dissonant Hymns Records. The band has partnered with Metal Bite to launch an early album stream ahead of its official release this Friday.
Metal Bite comments
“DIABOLOGY still has that spunk and enthusiasm you always want to hear out of a younger band (if you’re already bored with your own riffs by the time you’re 25 that’s never a good sign), like you get the sense they legitimately think their riffs are some of the best in the world – but since they already got all the knee-jerk impulses out on their first full-length, the writing on Father of Serpents is much more deliberately paced, with some transitions being a bit less balls-to-the-wall in order to serve the song better in the long run.”
Los Angeles-based thrash metal trio Diabology is excited to announce the upcoming release of their sophomore album, Father of Serpents, recorded and mixed by Dave Kaminsky (Stone Healer, Fires in the Distance), with mastering by Ryan Williams (Kardashev, The Black Dahlia Murder) at Augmented Audio. The epic cover art for Father of Serpents was designed by Anditya Dita (Magic The Gathering, Rings of Saturn, Killitorous). The album will be released on October 7th through Dissonant Hymns Records. It is the follow-up to the group’s well-received 2020 debut album, Nobody Believes Me.
Active since 2016, Diabology was formed by guitarist Jesse Bergen, in part due to the inspiration and encouragement of his metalhead parents who are musicians themselves. After a few years spent writing material and adding other members, the group released their debut album, Nobody Believes Me in 2020.
A mere two years later, Diabology is ready to kick ass on a whole new scale with Father of Serpents. The album is a thrash metal whirlwind at its core, with inspiration, vitriol, and ambition drawn from death metal, black metal, and sludge/doom that takes it to the next level. Although they may be young, Diabology is not fucking around. Father of Serpents is a spirited effort from a group of up-and-comers eager to prove their mettle to the world.
Diabology – Father of Serpents will appeal to fans of bands such as:
Metallica, Megadeth, The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium, Machine Head, and Mastodon
Diabology – Father of Serpents band statement
“In writing Father of Serpents, we took the opportunity to explore different genres of metal and combine them in a way that would not alienate our following. Lyrically, the band explores a vast depth that encompasses mythology, fantasy, social issues, and having sex with cockroaches. In collaborating with producer Dave Kaminsky, we were pushed to musical boundaries beyond expectations. The result is 44 minutes of gut-wrenching, mind-blistering, in-your-face metal. Enjoy motherfuckers.”
