Over their decade in existence, Diabulus in Musica carved out a pretty lofty place for themselves with the top players of the Symphonic Metal universe. Albeit always with a slightly overdone classical component. A fact that we bemoaned already in our reviews of The Wanderer and Argia.

But still, Zuberoa Aznarez‘ siren’s song and her impressive classically trained vocal powers really hooked us petty much every time. Her contribution, together with Gorka Elso‘s growls, really made for the perfect team.

For quite a while the duo created … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Diabulus in Musica - Argia - Album CoverWhoa! Now some of the fans are going to be pissed off. So many very good reviews heaping praise on this record. And I just cannot get too warm with it.

We talk about Argia, the 3rd full-length album of Diabulus in Musica. Oh yeah, ’tis the one – the much awaited and hyped about. Once again, Argia is very complex fare, like their last one The Wanderer. And beautifully interpreted by Zuberoa Aznàrez, the delighting female front of this very talented band in tandem with Gorka Elso and the rest of [...] Click to raid more!
