Prepare yourself for the new Deiphago album is here and streaming below. Ominously dubbed I, the Devil, this eight track warhead represents the Filipino trio’s fifth album in their thirty year career. Once again featuring the artwork of Joe Petagno, and produced by none other than Kurt Ballou, I, the Devil is what happens when one of the world’s most extreme bands decides to push themselves even harder to make something evil and killer practically beyond mortal comprehension. Track after track of the band’s signature “Experimental Hyper-speed Speed Satanic Bestial Metal” like impaling javelins hurled from the heart of a black hole. By the time the manic ballistics of “Deus Alienus” hit, you’ve already been reduced to a fine mist, but your cells will instantly reconfigure for some freak out headbanging.
But enough spoilers. Check out the stream below to hear for yourself how I, the Devil slays at an insane level. The album comes out today on all relevant formats from Hells Headbangers.
I, the Devil
“This album is a celebration of our 30 years of existience,” says V666, bassist and vocalist of Deiphago, “a cultivation of all our experiences since the band started in 1989. We have worked hard on this, and it is the best music we have ever released, filled with dark moods and reeking of destruction. We present to you the essence of pure black metal as it was meant to be like in the early ‘90s, when bands didn’t sound the same. This is our magnum opus that will be revered right next to the groundbreaking black metal albums of the early ‘90s.
“This will surpass everything not just in the bestial black/death genre, but the whole black metal scene as a whole. This album stands on its own as diverse and unconventional, filled with monstrous dissonances and intolerable cacophony. It is perfecting the uncontrolled chaos. Kurt Ballou has done a great job as producer, engineer, and mixer, capturing our evil intensity. Normal people will not understand the music, as we have put such a high standard over all the typical trends of today. Beware the release of I, The Devil.
