Full Length Review: Carnal Diafragma "The Garden of Earthly Delights" (Bizarre Leprous Production) by Devin J. Meaney

Band: Carnal Diafragma
Location: Ostrava
Country: Czechia
Genre: Goregrind
Full length: The Garden of Earthly Delights
Format: Digital
Label: Bizarre Leprous Production (Czechia)
Release date: May 6, 2024
On a weekend goregrind binge I happened to find myself at the stream for “The Garden of Earthly Delights” by Carnal Diafragma! This is their 2024 (short) full-length album! I have known about Carnal Diafragma for many years and I have always enjoyed them—but it’s been a while since their name graced my computer screen—and just as long since their unique sound graced my speakers!
This is some sincerely on-point Czech goregrinding! When I first heard CD years ago my first thought was how unique and different the sound was from many other goregrind bands. Now that we are well into 2024 I can say they did not stray from their signature tones and atmosphere! Each track offers a blast of genuine head banging absurdity—the likes of which very few would be able to emulate! The closest in sound I can think of is Gutalax—but personally I think Carnal Diafragma is much better and a lot less “poopy”!
This is their fifth full-length album (I’m actually surprised there aren’t more for how long they’ve been in the game) and it is available on CD, streaming and digital format. “The Garden of Earthly Delights” was released through Bizarre Leprous Production—a name that is well known and respected by anyone who peruses the underground wasteland known as the worldwide goregrind “scene”!
I won’t harp any longer. If you are looking for something fun, heavy, upbeat and almost “dancey”—check this album out. You should also check out some of Carnal Diafragma’s back catalog—their earlier work is just as pleasantly nauseating as this! Cop it! -Devin J. Meaney
