As Noisey wrote in a 2017 “scene report,” “In Taiwan, choosing a life in the underground punk and metal scene means going against everything the dominant culture holds dear.”
On BloodRed Inferno, the band’s third full-length album and first to receive a wide international release, DIESEAR cement themselves as East Asia’s thrilling melodic death metal outfit. A conceptually-driven record drawn from the themes and revelations of the first part of Dante Alighieri’s 14-century epic poem, The Divine Comedy, BloodRed Inferno tells an allegorical tale of human sin against a backdrop of technical heaviness.
DIESEAR is Taiwan’s answer to At The Gates, Dark Tranquility and In Flames, mining the New Wave Of Swedish Death Metal in a fresh way.
In recent years, American metal luminaries like Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe and Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad have embraced the Taipei scene.
DIESEAR formed in 2007 and issued their first EP, Sear, the following year. 2009 saw the arrival of their debut full-length album, The Inner Sear. There was a four-year gap between the first album and their sophomore set, Ashes of the Dawn, which elevated the group to even greater prominence. DIESEAR toured Asia with Children Of Bodom and appeared at Helsinki, Finland’s Tuska Open Air Metal Festival in 2014, alongside Emperor, Anthrax, Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon, Neurosis, and Carcass.
X-Japan was the main reason bandleader SUI first picked up a guitar. At The Gates was the first death metal band he heard. Dir en Grey, Arch Enemy, the late Randy Rhoads, and Yngwie Malmsteen were other crucial inspirations, leading to the formation of DIESEAR. The band’s aim was nothing less than to create a brand new form of melodic death metal, to be pioneers in Taiwan.
BloodRed Inferno marks a turn toward more violent and brutal lyrical fare, without sacrificing the guitar.
