HistoryEdit

Diesel King would form in 2010 with their earliest known performance taking place on 8 January 2011.[2] The band would perform frequent gigs in the United Kingdom, leading up to the release of their first EP The Ancient and The Nameless on 16 March 2012. To support the EP the band would perform frequent gigs along with appearing at the inaugural Desertfest London. Roughly a year later on 4 March Diesel King would release a second EP entitled The Grey Man whilst working on a debut album.

Following an appearance at F.O.A.D. Fest in Manchester[3] Diesel King would record with Steve Sears at Titan Studios, releasing a single to tease the upcoming album in horror. disgust.. Concrete Burial would see release on 2 February 2015 to praise from the likes of The Sleeping Shaman,[4] The Sludgelord,[5] Doom Metal Heaven[6] and Metal Observer[7] to name a few. A launch party would be hosted on 7 February at The Black Heart,[8] followed by a tour of Europe that September alongside Gurt.

In 2016 Diesel King would sign with a relatively new label in APF Records, whom would put out the band's next release. Recording three new songs and a Phil Collins cover, Diesel King would release #gofuckyourselves on 23 June 2017 to generally positive reviews,[9][10] the label's second overall release. A launch party would be hosted on the same day as the album release at The Unicorn.[11] Along with sporadic gigs the band would appear at the 2017 edition of Into The Void[12] and the 2018 APF Records Showcase[13] among other events.
