DIABOLICAL’s “NEOGENESIS” NOT AN ALBUM BUT A BOOK

February 27th, 2013

Diabolical reveals that there is more to the new album “Neogenesis” than just a collection of songs. “Neogenesis” is also a novel telling the story of the end of the world and what lies beyond. The book is written by guitarist Carl Stjärnlöv and each chapter of the book is represented by a song on the album. Stjärnlöv explains: “I’ve had this idea for many years and I’m very pleased that we went ahead and actually realized it. The novel tells the story of a man who fights to survive in a world that has come to an end. This struggle for survival is not only physical but also metaphysical and spiritual. The struggle of the protagonist is also a reflection of our struggle as human beings in a world which we cannot take for granted much longer.”

Stjärnlöv elaborates further on the book and the concept behind “Neogenesis” in the fourth installment of the band’s studio diary.

“Neogenesis” is due for release on the 19th of April via ViciSolum Productions and will be published as a media book (combined book and audio CD).

Diabolical will embark on the Neogenesis tour – First Chapter later this week and have released a video greeting which also contains footage of the band rehearsing a song from the “Neogenesis” album:
