Diabulus In Musica are a band from Spain that plays a very smphonic form of gothic metal with elements of power, doom, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Argia" which was released by Napalm Records.
The album starts out with a dark sound along with melodic female vocals which have an esoteric feeling to them and after awhile folk instruments and choirs are added onto the recording and after the intro the music goes into a more fast, heavy and melodic death metal direction in the guitars while the other parts go for more of a symphonic sound.
When we get more into the album there is a mixture of clean singing and growls as well as a great amount of gothic elements done in a more modern day sound and in certain parts male vocals, leads and solos are added into the music along with small amounts of spoken word parts being utilized at times and after awhile acoustic guitars become a part of the recording and in some of the tracks you can also hear a small amount of blast beats being utilized.
Diabulus stick to mostly a symphonic form of gothic metal throughout the recording while also bringing in elements of melodic death and black metal in the heavier sections of the recording to create a sound of their own.
Song lyrics cover darkness, metaphysical and mythology themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound wher e you can hear all of the musicla instruments that are present on t his recording along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Diabulus In Musica are a very great sounding symphonic, gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album> RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From The Embers" "Spoilt Vampire" "Encounter At Chronos Maze" and "Indigo". 8 out of 10.
