Opera Diabolicus

Horror Metal - Sweden

Opera Diabolicus Band

Established by the two antagonists David Grimore and Adrian de Crow in Gothenburg in the mid-2000s, Swedish entity OPERA DIABOLICUS seeks to scourge the earth with their music, mischief, and schemes. 

Through burning hatred and mutual dislike to one another and with one prior album released under their belt (entitled †1614, released 2012), they’ve now conjured their sophomore offspring with music that could be described as epic horror metal, and thus would greatly appeal to fans of acts like KING DIAMOND, CANDLEMASS, MERCYFUL FATE and so forth. 

With a little help from their friends, whom brilliantly have assisted with their tools of their trade, plus the eminent Jens Bogren’s (OPETH, SEPULTURA, ROTTING CHRIST, DIMMU BORGIR) mixing and mastering skill, the result speaks for itself.  

The horror outfit will be releasing their sophomore full-length entitled “Death on A Pale Horse”, featuring Mats Levén (CANDLEMASS, THERION, SKYBLOOD etc.), Snowy Shaw (KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, THERION, NOTRE DAME etc.), Andy La Rocque (KING DIAMOND) and Michael Denner (KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE), later this year.

Line-up:

  • David Grimoire : guitar, keys
  • Adrian de Crow : bass
