The Age Of Metal conducted an interview with Spanish female-fronted symphonic metallers DIABULUS IN MUSICA last week when they were in Belgium supporting former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen. You can now listen to the chat using the Mixcloud player below.
DIABULUS IN MUSICA will release their sophomore album, "The Wanderer", in Europe on March 5 via Napalm Records.
According to a press release, "With their latest album, the Spanish quintet proves that impressive symphonic metal need not hail from Scandinavia. The musicians revolving around vocalist Zuberoa Aznárez have refined the trademark sound first heard on their debut album, 'Secrets', and brought their latest work, 'The Wanderer', to a whole new level. DIABULUS IN MUSICA unites heavy riffs with sensual melodies and appealing refrains. 'The Wanderer' is not a mere collection of songs, but rather a passionate and sweeping symphonic metal album that will mesmerize from beginning to end."
DIABULUS IN MUSICA previously described the material on "The Wanderer" as "full of passion, energetic, yet delicate, and also a big step forward in our music."
