'Stunning… one of the most exciting new bands I’ve heard in years.” – MICHAEL MCKEEGAN, THERAPY?
Founded by Ben Christo (guitarist of The Sisters of Mercy), Diamond Black deliver crushing riffs, mesmerising electronica & cinematic choruses. Inspired by the heaviness of Katatonia, the torment of Korn, the passion of Depeche Mode, the haunting soundscapes of Type O Negative and the anthemic quality of The Cult, Diamond Black weave tangled tales of desire, decadence and devotion.
Debut single ‘Sorrow’ premiered on Metaltalk.net in October 2017 to great acclaim: hailed and shared by members of Rob Zombie, rotated on Scuzz TV and featured in Bass Guitar Magazine. ‘Ghost in the Glass’ followed in 2018, garnering near 140,000 Spotify plays.
In June 2019, Diamond Black signed a worldwide deal with the legendary Cargo/Livewire Records. Current single, ‘The Scarlet’ is the band’s first release with the label, revealing a more introspective side to Diamond Black whilst maintaining their signature haunting, heartfelt heaviness.
