Diablo Swing Orchestra – The Butchers Ballroom

Diablo Swing Orchestra

Avant-garde metal bands are probably infamous for their schizophrenic compositions, mindlessly genre-hopping at every possible turn that their music begins to sound more like a bunch of random ideas rather than actual songs. Carnival in Coal and Mr Bungle (specifically on Disco Volante) are two guilty examples. However, Diablo Swing Orchestra stands out from the majority because unlike them, they manage to integrate a massive amalgamation of sounds into every single track with excellent cohesion and unrivalled fiery passion. Yes, they actually managed to write not mindless genre wankery but actual songs.
