Diocletian

Named for a Roman emperor, Diocletian looked to be one of New Zealand's rising stars, playing a pummelling, dense brand of blackened death metal. They managed a handful of EPs and splits alongside three full-length albums from 2007 to 2014. Indeed, their last album, Gesundrian, received justified acclaim as one of the top albums of 2014. Unfortunately, the band broke up the following year.

Recent album: Amongst The Flames Of A Bvrning God, released on August 16, 2019.
