Review: Saint Diablo - Devil Horns And Halos


This is a band that mixes metal, Latin music and hardcore together. Their new album ‘Devils horns and halos’ has a lot of emotion in it. Guitarist Justin Adams was writing songs for the album when he got a divorce. He was also shortly afterwards diagnosed with cancer. Vocalist Tito Quinones says the lyrics for ‘Survive this’ were written for Justin. The other band members are Brian Bush (Drums) and Tyler Huffman (Bass).

The first song on the album is actually called the same as the album. The first thing that I notice is that I hear some hardcore effects mixed into the music. It’s a nice effect and I can really appreciate it. Vocalist Tito is very powerful and you almost hear him trying to sing. It’s nice to hear that someone did their best. I also like that there is a quiet piece in the song, so you can keep up with the rest of the song. Although I still can’t hear the Latin music in it, I really like it.

The second song on the album is called ‘Survive this’. It starts with a nice guitar and some drums. The voice is suddenly different. It sounds more nasal than on the first song, but it isn’t a bad thing. It is nice to have some variation in voices. The pace of this song is a little slower. Suddenly they start in Spanish and it is actually a really surprising effect. I really enjoyed this song.

All the songs have a nice metal touch to it. The last song on the album is called ‘Reincarnation’. It’s a fast number with some Spanish grunts in it. Again it works really well with the whole song.

This album is out now, so buy a copy if you can.
