Four piece Finnish metal-bulldozer Diablo was born on the west coast 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 of northern Finns. 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 of the tour was supporting Metallica at their Helsinki Olympic Stadium concert.

Diablo’s fifth album ICAROS was their first one for Sakara Records. The album introduced the band more aggressive than ever; the tempos had gone up and the guitar tuning down. The record buyers rewarded the band by giving Icaros the position #2 on the Finnish album charts. Icaros got great feedback also from the international media and the album was released all over Europe during Autumn 2008. At the beginning of 2009 Diablo were invited on an extensive tour with Children of Bodom and Cannibal Corpse. Diablo proved their skill as a live band, and in October 2009 they were called back to Germany to do their first headlining mini-tour.

SILVER HORIZON is the title of Diablo’s long awaited sixth album. The story of the album is loosely based on old science fiction novel called Aniara. It’s written in 1956 by Swedish Nobelist Harry Martinson. Silver Horizon will be release in 18th September in Finland and a later in the Fall in other European countries.
