RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Tragul 2018Same as the dreaded Henry MetalTragul ramped up their presence ever more during 2017. Only that this particular band took a much more interesting route. The newly formed outfit decided to forego the usual treadmill and to release every 1-2 months a new video, but no album. A kind of a drip feed to the hungry masses addicted to your soundbites, which – in itself – is an interesting concept.

In a few short months their style morphed from an electronically tainted and symphonically challenged Sirenia offshoot to Symphonic Metal with a pretty serious Power Metal bite.

The dreary black career cliff a band must navigate around usually looms at the sophomore effort. With Diabulus in Musica it was the junior record that got them to this sorry chunk of rock. I was thus a bit wary of what I would find in DiMs latest and best. But – lo and behold – the tune changed into something else. Loki be praised! More lively, rockier, lighter in taste and much more substantial too. [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

Diabulus in Musica – Argia (2014) – Review


Whoa! Now some of my partners in crime in the reviewers arena are going to be pissed off - and some of their faithful fans alike, who like this band so much. So many very good reviews and - I just cannot get too warm with this record.

The 3rd album of Diabulus in Musica, oh yeah, the much awaited and hyped about.


Again, it is a very complex album, like their last one 'The Wanderer'.
