Diabulus In Musica Presents "Invisible"

If unbridled passion for classical music meets raw modern metal, the result is most certainly going to be Diabulus In Musica. The Spanish band is the biggest symphonic metal act their homeland has to offer, and the fivepiece has been storming Europe since 2010 and the debut "Secrets"! Two years after "Argia," the fourth album "Dirge for the Archons" ('Archon' has been named as one of Atlantis' creators) travels with us to long lost worlds and thrills with the flair of the finest operas, rough growls, epic choirs, orchestral intermezzi and pure metal. The mystical cover artwork comes courtesy of Heilemania (Lindemann, Epica, Kamelot).

Today, the band teamed up with MetalUnderground.com for the premiere for the music video for the new song "Invisible." Check it out in the player below.

"Dirge for the Archons," which is set to drop via Napalm Records on November 18th. The track listing is as follows:

"Argia" is a modern power metal infused symphonic masterpiece centered around the fantastic vocals of Zuberoa Aznárez. The album was the first release injected with new blood: Alexey Kolygin on guitar, Odei Ochoa on bass and drummer David Carrica, who joined anchor members Aznárez and keyboardist and death vocalist Gorka Elsin in 2013 following a lineup shakeup following the 2012 sophomore effort "The Wanderer."

Diabulus In Musica Premieres New Music Video

Spanish symphonic metal act Diabulus In Musica premiered the new music video "Inner Force" over at Metal Insider at this location (also showing in the player below). The song appears on the band's upcoming new album "Argia" which drops on April 8th in North America via Napalm Records.

Vocalist Zuberoa Aznárez commented on the song: “‘Inner Force’ talks about the two sides of the human being and about how we can turn negativity into positive strength. To express this idea in the video, we needed to show two very different characterizations and sceneries: a dark, tight and small place to express that negativity we all sometimes have in our minds; and then an open and lighter one to represent mind freedom and renewal. This is also related with the cover of Argia and the general concept in the album: rebirth after the sinking.”

Mikel Larequi directed the video and Manuel Toro was in charge of the photography direction. The video was recorded in two different locations. The first locale is a bunker hidden inside the mountains of the Navarrese Pirinées. Franco obliged to build a lot in the border just after the Spanish civil war and the 2nd World War because he was afraid of an invasion by the Allies, but (fortunately) they were never used. The second place is a beautiful beach of stone surrounded by cliffs in Bizkaia (Basque country). More...

Diabulus In Musica Announces Departures

Spanish symphonic metal act Diabulus In Musica announced the departure of bassist Álex Sanz , drummer Xabier Jareño and guitarist Adrián M. Vallejo from the band. The departure has been known for some time, and the members cite musical direction as the cause. The final show for the current incarnation of the band will be on November 30, 2012 for the release party of "Itzalen Sua," the DVD and book project of Xanti Rodriguez, the music soundtrack of which was composed by the band. Vocalist Zuberoa Aznárez made the following announcement on Facebook:

"We are very sad to announce the departure of Adrián, Álex and Xabi from Diabulus in Musica. The only reason is that they don't feel so excited about this music style anymore, so we cannot do but respect and understand this decision. Their last show with DiM will be the release party of 'Itzalen Sua' in November 30th.

"Anyway, this is not the end! We knew this decision since a few months now, so we have been working with new awesome musicians to continue playing shows and making new music, then... Be ready for more powerful symphonic & modern metal in the future!! We will introduce the new members in January the 10th, when we will play another show to present the project 'Itzalen Sua' in Azpeitia."

Unearthing The Metal Underground: Simon Oberender

Once in awhile, select troubadours of the heavy metal genre burn hot and bright, much like super-massive stars, and die by exploding in spectacular supernovas well before their time. They never quite make it out of the underground into wider fame, but end up touching quite a few projects in their lifetimes and leaving their mark in unique ways. Optimistically continuing with the astronomical metaphor, the stellar winds and supernovae from the explosion seed space with elements for future stars, fittingly paralleling the life and death of these musicians. Few, however, are accomplished audio engineers as well. This week, we commemorate the underground projects of one such engineer and musician, recently deceased: Simon Oberender.

Audio engineers don’t get half as much credit as the musicians they record for making heavy metal sonically live up to the first half of its title, though they’re ultimately responsible for making sure that the music translates to “heavy” on record. Moreover, as time goes by, they’re being asked to perform increasingly difficult tasks, like “give us a 30-part choir, Gregorian chant section, ethnic hand percussion, and a big organ” while also dealing with the traditional metal rhythm section. As an engineer at Sascha Paeth’s famed Gate Studio in Wolfsburg, Germany, Simon tackled the aforementioned tasks and also performed on an impressive amount of projects, including 4 Epica releases, 3 Kamelot releases, 3 Avantasia releases, 2 Edguy releases, Mayan’s debut release, and 2 Rhapsody of Fire releases.

Aside from these main projects, Simon had also worked on other lesser-known projects. The first of the ones we will spotlight this week is his most recent band, Beyond The Bridge.

Beyond The Bridge

Based out of Germany, Beyond The Bridge is a progressive metal band with a bafflingly impressive debut album (reviewed here) centered on a lofty concept summed up in the title, “The Old Man and the Spirit.” The band recently played their third-ever show at the ProgPower USA festival, making their USA debut just two weeks and two nights ago. Not only was Simon double-slinging instruments with the band live, playing two keyboards and electric guitar, but he was also singing in the choir on the album and served as the albums’s mixing and mastering engineer.
