After taking the fans of label mates and bay area thrash titans MACHINE HEAD by storm on their most recent German run, DIABLO BLVD had also been confirmed to hit the road supporting Brooklyn’s alternative metallers LIFE OF AGONY on tonight’s show in Cologne.
The band recently released the official vintage horror influenced music video for the song ‘Son Of Cain’.
Formed in 2005 with all members hailing from the city of Antwerp, Belgium, the band is named after a CORROSION OF CONFORMITY song and lead by notorious stand-up comedian and singer Alex Agnew. With current and ex-members of bands like A BRAND, BORN FROM PAIN and MEURIS, this eclectic five-piece quickly started to turn heads and playing shows to appreciative crowds all over Belgium and the Netherlands.
Building on groovy riffs, catchy choruses and a charismatic stage presence, DIABLO BLVD offers what made their heroes great within a wide range of influences from the heavy genre (like DANZIG, THE CULT, GUNS ‘N’ ROSES, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and TYPE O NEGATIVE), classic rock and even blues.
After two successful full-length albums and numerous celebrated shows around Europe DIABLO BLVD went to the legendary ICP studios in Brussels with producer Ace Zec to record the brand new album »Follow The Deadlights« in collaboration with the American duo Jay Ruston (mix) and Paul Logus (mastering) who have previously been behind the sound of ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR, MEATLOAF and STEEL PANTHER.
The band will release »Follow The Deadlights« on January 23, 2015.
