A track-by-track breakdown of the "Musica Diablo" songs by Derrick Green is available on the web site of the German edition of Metal Hammer magazine.
"Musica Diablo" was released in South America with different artwork from the version that was made available in the rest of the world.
Commented André NM: "It was never our intention to create more than one cover for the album, but Gustavo Sazes came with at least four amazing covers and made our choosing process a living hell! Therefore we decided then to have the two covers we liked most to be released simultaneously, as the costs for such effort are big, we came with the idea of giving each continent a different cover."
Added Sazes: ''It was not that easy to mix and blend to the bone modern influences and old-school feelings, but I think we did a really great job on it. It's a really iconic and symbolic cover with some small details that fans will dig into. Red is our main theme here and for sure it reflects the rage and fury within their music. I’m really happy with the results. The beast is really inside those arts."
MUSICA DIABLO completed a 12-day European tour from May 26 to June 6.
The band last year parted ways with drummer Marcão (AÇÃO DIRETA, DEAD FISH) and replaced him with Nicollini. The group also added a second guitarist in the shape of André Germani Curci.
