If these tracks are typical of them then this is yet another primarily death metal band being called black metal by almost everyone. Admittedly this does have a bit of black in their sound (and doom) but this is clearly death metal at its core.

no idea where you see or hear them being called black metal. But everyone I know who knows Diocletian calls them death metal.

Yep, pretty much any death metal band with a blackened and doomy atmosphere. Literally every one of them. Apparently a little atmospherics blinds them to the bleeding obvious guitar riffs, sound and progressions (and vocals in most cases).

good thing I never read youtube, lastfm etc comments and if I do never comment on them (well don't have any accounts there, so that helps hahahaha)
Well, will be putting all those bands on again later today when I get home. Nicely putting the vinyls on the player and let the DEATH metal thunder through the house and on to the street. Hopefully the deluxe vinyl version of Antediluvian - Logos will have arrived when I get home.
But damn calling those bands black metal I think I will have lots of fun Thursday and Saturday at gigs when discussing those idiots with people who actually do call it death metal. Oh wait I know what it is all tose calling those bands black metal must be know-it-all Internet keyboard warrior youngsters, because the crowd I am talking about who call it death metal is way over 30.

But yeah, just exceptions.... I still remember the prime example of a guy who said that The Devil's Blood was black metal.

Wait wait wait... by "in this case", you're not referring to me are you? Because I've never even heard this album/given opinions on it.

He's probably referring to the youtube / last.fm fools. For example, if you go to the actual youtube page of the first youtube video I posted the top comment is "this is pure cult black metal, the way it was supposed to be. not the new american shoegaze prog crap." and it has over 30 likes.

Eww.... yeah that's just dumb. Listening to the tracks you posted earlier, "pure cult black metal" is definitely not how I would describe it. Black influenced maybe, but not enough for genre classification.

Killer album with production from the crypt! Sinister and evil; exactly how I prefer my death metal.
