Diabolic was formed in January 1997 with the intent of becoming a death metal leader. After their first live show done in February 1997 in Tampa with Vader, Broken Hope and Monstrosity, Diabolic earned the respect in the death metal capitol.

In June 1997, the City Of The Dead demo was unleashed upon the worldwide underground and is still described today as an hyperblasting assault. This demo has been reviewed as one of the "best death metal demo ever" and Diabolic re-released this jewel in a mid format and added two never released tracks recorded back in the demo days. Conquest Music signed Diabolic in Feb' 1998 and released their debut Supreme Evil.

This Subterraneal Magnitude is the second full length album and was record in June 2000 at Greenhouse FX studios in Tampa (where else do you record US death metal ?). As for their first shot, this one is full of screaming guitars, howling vocals ranging from demonic lows to soul-ripping high screams of defiance, insane hyper-blast drumwork with scorching double-kicks, dark and powerful lyrics. However, I think the production could have been just a bit better as the sound is "trapped" for my taste.

Except this little detail, if you are fan of Florida death metal ... this Subterraneal Magnitude awaits you. If you don't like death metal , why the hell are you reading this review ;-))
