Rope Or Guillotine

European release of Diploid’s 2021 masterpiece “I AM YOURS. AND I AM HERE
AGAIN.” originally released in Australia by Heavy Machinery Records

Since 2010, Diploid have been a primal force searing underneath the pyre of
Australian heavy music. Crushing, urgent, depressing and fierce, few can
stand toe to toe with the blistering vocals, thematic despair and
rapid-fire instrumentals that strike straight at a listener’s pressure
points. Diploid are antithetic to peace.

Diploid’s 2020 album ‘Glorify’ recently earned the band an award for Best
Heavy Album from Music Victoria. International heavyweights such as Full of
Hell, Cancer Bats and Integrity have all slotted Diploid on support for
their shows. Heavy Experimental pioneers The Body have performed a
collaborative improvised set with Diploid in 2019, and the band have
blasted eardrums on tour in Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, South
Korea, New Zealand and Australia.

Diploid’s fourth album, ‘I Am Yours. And I Am Here Again.’ is a masterclass
in musical intensity where elements of grindcore, noise, black metal,
hardcore punk, screamo and avant experimentalism are whipped into a
cacophonous fury, while staggeringly extreme vocals explore lyrical themes
of genocide and radicalisation.

Written on Wurundjeri land during a 100-day lockdown, the record picks at
the feeling that nothing you do changes anything – the feeling that you
can’t stop the pain in the world. The next chapter for Australia’s fiercest
heavy act is about to begin. Prepare yourself.
