Opera Diabolicus album stream2012-03-02 by Trey Spencer STAFF | 7 Comments
|Opera Diabolicus are streaming their newest album, +1614, on Bloody-Disgusting.com. +1614 was released on February 28th through Metalville Records. |
OPERA DIABOLICUS is the brainchild of composer/musician David Grimoire and lyricist Adrian de Crow. The idea sprung to life when the two of them met randomly at a stage play of Umberto Eco's book The Name of the Rose at a theatre in Gothenburg the year 2006. Both of them were very intrigued by the story and they ended up talking about how interesting it would be to make a theatrical and dark metal musical based on that kind of a story. The conversation between them that took place in Gothenburg that bleak December night planted the seed that soon should grow to be the concept of OPERA DIABOLICUS - The concept of combining the dark elements of music and theatre in alliance with musical excellency.
The music could be described as dramatic and dark doom metal with atmospheric, epic and progressive elements. If you're into bands like Candlemass, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Memento Mori, Therion, Notre Dame, Dimmu Borgir and Kamelot this is definitely the band for you to keep your eye on.
The upcoming album features among others; Snowy Shaw (NOTRE DAME, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, MEMENTO MORI, THERION), Mats Levén (KRUX, THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) and Niklas Isfeldt (DREAM EVIL) on vocals, daemonic voices and ghoulish sounds. Snowy Shaw has also contributed with his well known drums of doom which gives yet another warranty of quality to the music. The album is produced and mixed by none other than Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND) at his Sonic Train Studio.

This is like old-school Nevermore (their debut) goes doom. Not bad.
