Official press release

Ascendance Records is hugely proud to announce the signing of Diablo Swing Orchestra to a worldwide deal.

The unique genre-hopping Swedish sextet has already garnered an ever-growing army of fans on the strength of their self-released debut "The Butcher's Ballroom" (later licensed to Candlelight Records in Europe and Sonic Cathedral in the US) and their European festival perfomances including Metal Female Voices Fest and Summer Breeze.

The new album "Sing-Along Songs For The Damned & Delirious" is tentetively scheduled for a September release. As well as the normal release we will also be producing a strictly limited and numbered boxed version, available by direct mail order only. It will feature an exclusive DVD, a set of postcards, a pewter pendant and a sticker all in an embossed tin box. Full details will be made available closer to release.

The album will be recorded at In Flames studio in Gothenburg under the supervision of producer Roberto Laghi who, besides his work on the latest In Flames effort, has also worked with the likes of Sonic Syndicate, Mustasch and Hardcore Superstar. Recordings will commence on April 6th and will be finished on May 1st. Mixing will be done between the 1st and 12th of June. The band will be posting a studio report at the end of each week on their MySpace site so that you can follow how the recordings are progressing.

The band say that fans of "The Butcher's Ballroom" will recognize the D:S:O sound but it has developed into something even more playful and at times far more aggressive than before.

Really? No one really knew about them? Just us? I remember that year's awards and this band in particular.

I think we might be assisting the ascendance of one of the best metal bands ever...

Nonetheless what youre thinking, this will be valid at least for me...

To me this are mixed news. The good news is the tentative release date. The bad news? ...under the supervision of producer Roberto Laghi who, besides his work on the latest In Flames effort... we all here know how good was In Flames' lasted effort *cough* ME Awards 2008 *cough*
Black Conundrum - 04.03.2009 at 04:08  
This is awesome news. I can't wait for Diablo Swing Orchestra's new material to be released.
Daggon - 04.03.2009 at 08:26  
Oh man, I can't wait until september mmm well I think the waiting will be nothing compared to the great album they are going to deliver... I can't say the same about Wintersun.

I suppose it's not producer, who decides how's the sound and compositions, but the band. Better not blame the producer.

And on the news itself. It's good to hear that the band is progressing. I hope they have some new twisted ideas on the upcoming album.

of course the band writes and plays the songs but the producer can have a lot of influence on the final product as well...

anyway, looking forwards to it
although i'm having my doubts about if this one will be as good as the debut
