Founded in 2008, DIKTATUR is a black metal band from the South-West of France and the Basque country. The band draws its inspiration from the concept of the “strong way” (violence, horror, fighting the unbeatable, etc…) where hope dies and death is the only solution.
Late 2010, DIKTATUR self-released its debut album entitled LA VOIE DU SANG (translation: The Way of Blood). The takes place mainly in the context of trench warfare, facing the horror and the threatening eye of Death. Despite a minimal promotion, the album has been exported to Spain, Greece, Germany, Norway and Thailand.
During 2015, DIKTATUR reveals four new pieces taken from the unfinished outline of the successor of LA VOIE DU SANG and makes it a EP in 2016 : L’AGONIE d’UN MONDE (translation: The Agony Of a World).
Once again, the group proves that it is not easy to put a label on their creations and offers us here 4 titles of a perfectly mastered Black Metal with deep and varied atmospheres. L’AGONIE D’UN MONDE depicts in music an unstoppable mechanism, that of a slave-like order (Comme un ombre) and oppressor (L’hérétique), ready to destroy everything to rule over nothing
(Par le fer et le feu, L’agonie d’un monde). Mastered at [X]-LAB STUDIO (The Prisoner, Numenor …) this EP also marks a major turning point for DIKTATUR with several changes of line-up and its entry into the renaissant label MELANCHOLIA RECORDS (Orakle, Bornholm, Hecatombic, Numenor, Straasha, Unholy Matrimony, Malefilencia, The Prisoner …).
Do not deceive yourself, under this name which makes him fantasize more than one, DIKTATUR does not support any political or philosophical current. Only music reigns supreme.
