Diamond Black announce ‘Ghost In The Glass’ single – listen here;
Intense, sensual and arcane; London quartet Diamond Black have announced ‘Ghost In The Glass’ as their new download single;
The band founded by Ben Christo (guitarist, The Sisters of Mercy), deliver crushing riffs, mesmerising electronica coupled with cinematic choruses: a dark fusion of irreverence, intrigue and isolation.
The band take inspiration from The Cult, Depeche Mode and Type O Negative; there is also clearly an element of the Sisters of Mercy grandeour in the mix certainly in the shape of Finnish singer J.I. Turunen’s powerful vocals which are delivered with a distinctly Scandinavian melancholy, add a thunderous rhythm section, courtesy of drummer Jan-Vincent Velazco and bassist Adam Lightspeed, wrap that in darkwave/electro-rock production courtesy of Finnish visionary Jaani Peuhu and the result is the explosive sound of Diamond Black.
The band have just completed a short run of UK dates, concluding at the Boston Music Rooms, London before returing to the studio.
A full UK tour is expected in late summer.
