DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA
SING-ALONG SONGS FOR THE DAMNED AND DELIRIOUS
Schizophrenic Swedish sextet Diablo Swing Orchestra intertwine crushing metal a la System of a Down with oodles of oddball flare that combines heavy-handed metal menacing with a jump-jiving dose of 1940’s-era ragtime and swing with a span the globe sound. Throw in a bothersome barrage of over the top male/female operatic twin vocals and cap it off with a smorgasbord of surreal stylistic switches accompanied by a cavalcade of old time instrumentation destined to induce listener dizziness to round out this twisted yet enchanting offering. If you can stand your metallic attack with a lot of left of center influences, you won’t find a more ambitiously avant-garde release than SING-ALONG SONGS FOR THE DAMNED AND DELIRIOUS, making it a must-have for the adventurous sect who wouldn’t feel out of place busting out The Lindy in the pit.
