Debut Studio Album from Spanish Gothic Metallers: DIABULUS IN MUSICA
DIABULUS IN MUSICA hails from Spain and began their musical journey in 2006.
Their style can be defined as symphonic metal with gothic elements, although their influences are diverse.
During their first year of work and with the first songs recorded independently, DIM managed to be finalists in some prestigious contests.
This success encouraged the band to write a great amount of songs, Eleven of which were selected to be included in their first studio album entitled “Secrets”.
“Secrets” features an altruistic collaboration of great musicians; soprano Maite Itoiz (John Kelly & Maite Itoiz), the tenor Ariel Hernández (Spanish National Choir), members of the professional Early Music ensemble “Nova Lux”, the violist Laura Vallejo (London Philharmonic Orchestra) and the violinist Sergio Ramírez (Spanish National Broadcast) among others.
All of these intensely proffessional and varied musicians were thrilled to collaborate together on this project, once they heard the quality of the material.
“Secrets” was engineered by the prestigious Spanish producer Iñaki Llarena and mixed by Ad Sluijter (ex-guitar player of EPICA). Mastering duties were placed in the more than capable hands of the highly renowned Sascha Paeth (EPICA, KAMELOT, RHAPSODY OF FIRE) along with Simon Oberender and Michael (Miro) Rodenberg at Gate studios in Wolfsburg, Germany.
Music fans will find a lot of variety and depth in “Secrets”, expertly arranged classical passages, deeply infectious and insatiable hooks and melodies and dark and aggressive moments.
In these moments you realise: despite the eclectic backgrounds of the band members, the variety and depth in the composition of the music; DIABULUS IN MUSIC is, in fact, a metal band!
