That may sound odd, and it is, but its also fun, frantic, beautiful, and very intense!
K. Winters
Metal is not my usual taste in music, but this band is a unique group of virtuosos that break genre, blend musical styles, and create a truly awesome, exciting sound.

If you are at all into opera or classical music, you will probably like this, even if you are not into hard rock or heavy music.

I accidentally stumbled across this album while looking for info on the upcoming release from Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The name interested me, so I picked it up. Long story short...THESE GUYS ARE AWESOME, and unlike ANYTHING you've heard before!

This could best be described as operatic/symphonic metal, all with what sounds like an actual female opera singer on lead vocals. Besides guitar/drums/bass, there is a full complement of classical instruments at play here, giving the album a strong symphonic sound.

I suppose you could compare these guys to Evanescence or Nightwish, but they're really so much more than that comparison would make them out to be. The music is complex, but still fun to listen to.

I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for something different. If you are at all into opera or classical music, you will probably like this, even if you are not into hard rock or heavy music. And if you are into good heavy rock but couldn't care less about opera, you will probably still get into this, because of the phenomenal musicianship.

After checking out this, their second release, I went back a day later and found their debut album and bought that as well, and am equally pleased. I can't believe these guys have been around for a couple years and I have never heard of them!

If you have found Diablo Swing Orchestra, chances are you are already familiar with Apocalyptica, but if not, check them out too. They started out as a cello tribut to Metallica, but their last couple releases have added vocals to some tracks and filled out the band with more traditional instruments. If I had to compare Diablo Swing to anyone, it would probably be Apocalyptica.

I own both of the D.S.O. albums. They are both terrific. Every track of their first album, "The Buther's Ballroom," is unique. So, it's no surprise that the band managed to completely reinvent their already remarkable style with the release of "Singalong Songs for the Damned & Delirius." There is more variety in one D.S.O. song than in entire albums by lesser artists (a category that includes just about everybody). Everything that I loved about the first album returns in spades, including the seamless marriage of dozens of musical styles, blending genre with unparalleled finesse. Even the vocals defy stylistic definition. As before, Wagnerian opera plays a vital role, but there are also moments of pure metal and rock, both soft and hard. Most albums this ambitious ultimately fail, succumbing to postmodern cliches. But D.S.O. succeeds. The sincerity of their artistic impulse means that they have much more to offer than mere rule-breaking. Perhaps this is what people mean by "post-postmodernism." For D.S.O., polystylism is more than irony; it is majesty.

Every year at the annual ProgPower USA festival, the promoter brings in a "wild card" band that doesn't necessarily fit the festival's typical lineup. In 2009 that wild card was Swedish avant-garde metal band Diablo Swing Orchestra. If the name brings to mind images of a sinister version of the Brian Setzer Orchestra, you're not too far off base. Diablo Swing Orchestra is too erratic to classify, really, as they swing dance all over the lines between metal, swing jazz and even opera.

Like Stolen Babies and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Diablo Swing Orchestra tests just how far off into weirdsville metal fans are willing to go. Sing Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious is the band's second album, and instead of moderating their sound for potential crossover appeal, they've amped up just about everything that makes them so unique. Whether this is a good thing or not depends entirely on your own tolerance for the avant-garde. Despite maintaining a heavy, electric undercurrent throughout, the band is pushing swing jazz horns and keys way more than electric guitars here, so the album moves out of metal territory pretty quickly.

On one hand, I admire Diablo Swing Orchestra's vision and the fact that they thought to unite such divergent musical styles in the first place. On the other, the band doesn't make it easy for those who might be hesitant about a jazz/opera/metal project. The song structures are erratic, the horns sound spastic at times, the bass recalls Primus, and the vocals...sorry, but to me it was the sonic equivalent of a screwdriver through the eardrum. Annlouice Wolgers has impressive power, but her range seems limited to shrill and shrieking. Some fans will no doubt find that a refreshing change of pace from the Nightwish/Leaves Eyes vocal style. Others...

I loved Diablo Swing Orchestra's first release, finding it refreshing, mildly challenging, and a joy to listen to. I eagerly anticipated their next release, and now, here it is!

...Huh.

Well, I'll give them this much: they certainly have not "sold out" to more mainstream tastes in an effort to move records. Nope, this is most assuredly a picture of a band following their own path and staying true to their vision.

This album really amps up the old-time swing and jazz feel, while reducing the metal component to a degree. The horns are much more abundant, while the electric guitar has taken a step into the background.

Probably the biggest change from their previous release is the vocals. The female operatic vocals are still there, but they've changed stylistically. They're much more dramatic and choppy, rather than in the traditional singing style. But her singing hardly registers when compared to the new male voice that DSO now features.

In the previous DSO release, a more hushed and gentle male voice would appear on some of the tracks. This voice is still here on the new release, but it appears very rarely. In its stead, there appears what I can only described as a bombastic carnival barker / circus ringmaster voice. Has a very old-timey eastern European feel about it. Whatever it is, it lends a somewhat hokey note to the songs, making them seem like a bit of a put-on, and I don't like it. There's also a few brief appearances by some growling, screeching, and *hissing* voices. Variety is the spice of life, I suppose.

The compositions themselves remind me overwhelmingly of the soundtrack to a Tim Burton film, the ones where Danny Elfman does the music.
