Diploid – Everything Went Red LP
Black Wire Records (BWR-22), 2017
*FIRST 100 ON BLOOD RED VINYL*
“Melbourne’s Diploid return with ‘Everything Went Red’, an all-out assault of sludge-ridden punk, doom-laden screamo, and blackened grind.
The new record shows just how much the band’s relentless touring, writing and rehearsing has paid off. On ‘Everything Went Red’, influences from noise acts like The Body and Merzbow can be heard for the first time, alongside a shift towards slower, grinding tempos of sludge and doom.
When mixed with their base of powerviolence, screamo, punk and grind, the result is Diploid’s most powerful and varied record to date.
This is the sound of distilled range: immense and overwhelming. Essential for fans of Extortion, Iron Lung, In/Humanity, The Body and early Oathbreaker.” – Art As Catharsis
