Diablo Sign With Drakkar Entertainment

Finland's Diablo have inked a European deal with Drakkar Entertainment. The group's latest CD, "Eternium," will be released in continental Europe on September 27.

"Eternium," available in Finland since January via the Gaga Goodies/Poko label, debuted on the Finnish album chart at position No. 3. The follow-up to 2002's "Renaissance" was recorded at Fantom studios and was described by guitarist/vocalist Rainer Nygård as "the heaviest Diablo album so far. There's lot of new elements on the album, like my clean vocals, but the fans of our previous album ['Renaissance'] will love this one, too." A video for the track "Read My Scars" can be viewed at this location.

Diablo are currently writing material for their fourth album, which they expect to begin recording sometime next year.
