Biography : Diablo (FIN)


Four piece Finnish metal-bulldozer Diablo was born on the westcoast of Finland in the late 1990's. Diablo's talent was soon noticed by Poko Records, which released the band's debut album Elegance in Black in 2000. Two years later Diablo were ready to hit big with their second album Renaissance. The album debuted at the position 14 in the official Finnish album charts and raised Diablo to the frontline of Finnish metal bands.

Diablo did not lay back to repeat the success formula. The band continued evolving and sharpened their style for the third album Eternium (2004); the sound was more carefully considered and the band gave more space to strong melodies. However, the down-tuned guitars kept crushing the listener like ever before. Eternium took the position 3 on the Finnish album charts and the album stayed on the charts for ten weeks. Diablo went on tour to play intense shows all over Finland to establish their place in the hearts of Finnish metal heads.

Diablo's fourth album called MIMIC47 (2006) crystallized what Diablo is all about; virtuous musicianship, genius guitar riffs, great melodies and the undisputed attitude that only the Finnish men living in the dark and cold north could have. Impatiently awaited MIMIC47 reached the 1 position on the finnish album charts and so did the title song single on the single charts. In 2007 Diablo toured Germany for two weeks to promote the album's German release. One of the highlights in Diablo's career so far was supporting Metallica at their Helsinki Olympic Stadium concert.

At the moment Diablo are working hard in the studio to finish their forthcoming album called Icaros which will introduce Diablo more aggressive than ever.

Icaros will be released by Sakara Records in May 2008.
