2014 marks the ten year anniversary of New Zealand's Diocletian, and the advent of their most barbaric and ferocious release to date, ‘Gesundrian'. Drawing inspiration from early masterpieces by the likes of Voivod and Morbid Angel, ‘Gesundrian' is a development on Diocletian's trademark unrelenting steamroller approach with the barbed aggression not heard since their earliest works. It is a reflection of continual transformation and balance between order and chaos, themes which have pervaded Diocletian's music, aesthetics and philosophy since the very beginning.
