So Paulo, Brazil-based thrash metallers MUSICA DIABLO have parted ways with SEPULTURA singer Derrick Green.

Commented MUSICA DIABLO guitarist Andr NM (also of NITROMINDS): "It was very hard for us to take this decision, but Derrick being very busy for the last two years was making things hard especially to perform live. Lately we have been demoing for the new album, even Derrick was trying to do have an input on the process while on tour with SEPULTURA, but fact is that we all (including him) came to a conclusion that is not possible with the busy agenda from his other band to make things work as we wanted. We are now looking for a new singer to prepared and finish the material we have and get the band on the road again. As for Derrick, we all wish him and SEPULTURA the best luck with their new album, 'Kairos'."

In addition to Andr NM, MUSICA DIABLO features bassist Ricardo Brigas, guitarist Andr Germani Curci (KORZUS, THREAT) and drummer Edu Nicollini (NITROMINDS).

The band's self-titled debut album came out on May 28, 2010 via SAOL / H'Art / Zebralution. The CD's cover artwork was created by Gustavo Sazes, who has previously worked with ARCH ENEMY, GOD FORBID and OLD MAN'S CHILD.

"Musica Diablo" was released in South America with different artwork from the version that was made available in the rest of the world.

MUSICA DIABLO completed a 12-day European tour in May and June 2010.
