Diablo Sign With Sakara Records

Finnish metallers DIABLO have inked a deal with Sakara Records, the label founded by the Finnish metal band MOKOMA. DIABLO will enter Fantom studio in Tampere at the end of January to begin recording its fifth album, "Icaros", for a May release.

"We have known the members of DIABLO for years and their hard-working attitude as well as their truly intense new material made the decision an easy one for the future co-operation," Tuomo Saikkonen of Sakara Records said in a statement.

According to Saikkonen, the record company's main goal for DIABLO is to help them establish an international fan base in addition to capitalizing on the band's hard work building a local following.

The members of MOKOMA started Sakara Records in 2003 to release their own music after they were dropped by a multinational record company. Since then, STAM1NA, RYTMIHÄIRIÖ, BLACK BILE and now DIABLO have all joined the Sakara artist roster.

Formed in 1990, DIABLO's current lineup consists of singer/guitarist Rainer Nygård, guitarist Marko Utriainen, bassist Aadolf Virtanen and drummer Heikki Malmberg. The band's latest album, "Mimic47", was released in January 2006 and went straight to No. 1 on the Finnish national chart.
