Spanish metal band Diabulus In Musica have just dropped their new album, Argia.
Argia is a dramatic symphonic opus. Soaring gothic vocals and chugging guitars are supported by a rich orchestral accompaniment, and Zuberoa Aznárez’s perfect soprano vocals let the melodies soar. Aznárez’s real skill lies in the way she tempers the epic fantasy metal with real emotion, and it’s in the ballads that she really shines. That said, there are also plenty of ear-splitting riffs and lightning drums to enjoy, and we move between the two with impressive ease.
A must-hear for fans of symphonic and gothic metal.
