Diablo Swing Orchestra: Avant-garde Metal with Jazz Elements


sing-along-songs-for-the-damned-and-deliriousDiablo Swing Orchestra is very interesting Avant-garde Metal group from Sweden. I like northern metal groups. They know how to make music with using Nordic elements. Therion is my favorite group from Sweden that you could find an article about them, if you click here. Diablo Swing Orchestra is very interesting group that makes you hear jazz, swing, gypsy music, blues, flamenco, classical music, and opera elements with hard guitar riffs. I could say, it is a metal opera and cabaret. If you like to hear funny music combined with many styles, press play button on the player was given below. Their first album The Butcher’s Ballroom is distributed in Creative Common License. You also could download the album from the link on the player. Please read about copyright issues at the bottom of the post.

The origin of the name of the group comes from an urban legend form 16th century. The group performed musical work against to the church. They also performed music in secret ways because of the church’s imposition. Finally, they killed by the church. Although there are many groups combine symphonic items with different styles, Diablo Swing Orchestra should be distinguished from the others. Diversity and variety with funny songs in their music cheer up listeners. The sound of the group magnetizes listeners who do not listen to rock and related styles.

Diablo Swing Orchestra formed in 2003 with an EP named in Borderline Hymns. In 2006, they released their debut album. The Butcher’s Ballroom is very good album for a debut. It made me to listen to an album from a group performs many years. You could listen to the album from the player above. Ballrog Boogie, Heroines, Wedding March for a Bullet, and Pink Noise Waltz are my favorite songs. Download the free album to be fascinated. In 2009, Sing Along Songs for the Damned and Delirious album was released. The album is as successful as the first album. They raise the bar continuously that their progressive sound gets better day by day. A Tap Dancer's Dilemma, Siberian Love Affairs, Vodka Inferno, A Rancid Romance and Stratosphere Serenade are my favorite songs. Their live performance is also very good. The second album also released as a DVD.


Diablo Swing Orchestra is working on their new album will be released in the first quarter of 2012. I am waiting for Pandora's Pinata album impatiently. I believe that you will enjoy hearing the band’s music. Spectacular musicianship, diversity of music, combination with jazz and classical music elements, operatic vocals will fascinate you. Meet with their unique music and performance.
