"Diascorium’s line up was formed from current and ex-members of Reth, Narcosis, Tangaroa, Revokation, A Forest Of Stars, Morkret and more. Based in Leeds, UK, bassist Paul and guitarist Bond started writing songs December 2009, the line up came together with drummer Gaz and singer ‘Bernard’ joining February 2010, the first crop of gigs were May 2010 onwards, and now (November 2010) have already had supports to Desecration, Man Must Die, Magrudergrind, Bloody Phoenix, Stillbirth, as well as played the Damnation Festival , and upcoming have supports to Prostitute Disfigurement, Winterfylleth / Wodensthrone, and a load more gigs for 2011 booked in, including a proposed European tour in April.Playing a full conglomeration of extreme metal styles, with black metal just holding the lion share, tons of death, tech, slam, doom, thrash, grind and ambient moments to keep all happy. According to the UK Metal Underground review:- ‘…this is a patch jacket with all your favourite bands on’."

Disascorium are without a doubt one of the strangest bands I've ever listened to. I don't listen to much technical anything but I think it's safe to label them as technical death metal. The album starts out very black metal-esque and slowly moves into a very grindcore-ish phase and then whips out insane blast beats and then the guitar riffs start getting technical as fuck and really nailing every note perfectly and just sounds really complex. There are also some heavy doom influences during the instrumental parts but jump quickly right back into the blast beats and black metal riffs. Having different backgrounds and touring with numerous different bands, they definitely fit in amongst many different crowds and wouldn't disappointed. This is truly a listening experience as you dive deeper into the album and experience it for yourself.
