Biography[edit]

From the front lines comes an unmovable force to be reckoned with. Spawned from Central Virginia, SAINT DIABLO is proud to answer the call to arms by bringing a fresh and unique tone of Hardcore Metal and Latino melodies to heavy music! Since 2002 the band has had 2 releases. In 2003, the band independently released their self-titled album which featured the grammy nominated artist Anousheh Khalili on “Why Now?”. Also, the singles “Senoria Paranoia” and “Renaissance” pushed the band through new barriers and helped land a spot on the 2003 Eat’M Showcase in Las Vegas and Salem Or-be Tour featuring Busta Rhymes in New York. In 2008, the band released “REPUBLICA” through 925 Records. The band has also been featured on many nationally released compilations produced by Project Independent, StreetTeam.com, and Royal Blunts. SAINT DIABLO prides itself by performing on stage, and bringing a raw energetic live show to the fans every night! “It could be a venue with just the door guy and the bartender or a place that’s slam-packed with people… we will rock it the same” says Justin Adams (guitar). Touring is the band’s lifeblood, and being known as “tour dogs” is what this band is all about… Sharing their life’s work with a devoted fan base that stretches all over the country, they think of their fans as friends and family. Without them, SAINT DIABLO is nothing. The band is averaging almost 200 shows per year, and has supported (or toured with) bands such as Slayer, Drowning Pool, Chimaira, Hatebreed, Devil Driver, Soulfly, Fear Factory, Mushroomhead, GWAR, Flaw, Busta Rhymes, and many others. They have also been the only Jägermeister artist to perform at Mayhemfest 3 years in a row. In 2012, SAINT DIABLO will release their third full-length CD entitled ‘Saint Diablo’ through Eclipse Records (Mushroomhead, Scum of the Earth). They are already slated to film a music video for their first single and a national tour is currently being secured to support the new CDs release.
