Now, Diabolical is yet another album from a continuously evolving band. As far as most of Satyricon's early fans think, the band simply died after Nemesis Divinia. Despite this way of thinking, Satyricon have continued along the path they have chosen, and have gotten new fans who are more into their new brand of music. Both Satyr and Frost have said in interviews that Satyricon nowadays is a disciplined unit trying to make good songs. This discipline is achieved by them in this album, but for me personally it takes away that atmosphere and ancient sound that was typical of the band's early albums. Well this review is not going to be about how "kvlt" or otherwise Satyricon is. Instead it's going to be mainly about the album and the musicianship depicted in it.

It would have been a really crappy year if this piece of shit would really be the best Black Metal album of 2006.
8 is already way too high for this fucking garbage.

Best from their new era means nothing, as their new era is nothing but crap.

Rating: 6 It is not the best of 2006 by any stretch, merely the most popular. best of '06? Negura Bunget OM... blows this, and the vast majority of other '06 bm releases, out of the water.

i liked volcano, didn't like this. having it on in the background while doing other things, if not for the chorus, i wouldn't know when one song ended and the next began. sounded too much like the same midpaced riff/beat over and again.

Rating: 8 It is not the best of 2006 but it is not bad at all and I slightly prefer it to Volcano
