In 1980, with influence from the snazzy sports car “Lamborghini Diablo” the band Diablo found its name and style. Diablo was then formed in September of 1993 as a 4 member trash metal band. The original members of the band included vocalist Jung-won Park, guitarist Soohan Damien Kim, bassist Hyung-joon Kim and drummer Myung-kyo Dee Choo. Although the band had formed, the start was rough and slow. Due to schedule clashes of the members, personal issues and band gig issues Diablo had yet to set foot in the music scene. After a long and painful downfall, a new light started to shed on Diablo in 1996. With the new changes to the band style, the members and a new outlook on life, Diablo was reborn and was on the road to a new chapter in making history. In 1997 Diablo had to opportunity to join in on the recordings and makings of the thrash/death metal joint album “Jung dang bang wee” (accidental death from defense) with various artists. Also this year, bassist Hyung-joong Kim was taken in as a permanent member of the band making a sturdy backbone for Diablo. Even with this new found kickstart to success, Diablo was still only a part of the underground scene until 1999. In 1999 Diablo had the great pleasure to take part in the “San wool Lim tributealbum” (soldier of tribute). In this album Diablo got the chance to show their style by remaking the famous song “my heart is a wasteland”. This new remake version instantly hit charts and became a top selling hit amongst mainstream rock lovers. As Diablo was slowly on the rise, a new chapter of insane success came around again in 2000. This was the year that Diablo got to show the world what they really are. Diablo held their first concert in March of 2000. Not far along in July of 2000 Diablo released their first full album “Desirous Infection’. The release of this album was a landmark point in the life of Diablo. After 7 years of struggle and small success, Diablo finally had something to stand for and to showcase to the world. With the release came rave reviews, noise marketing, and the best, a fan base was being born. Diablo had the honor to work on 5 English tracks with the famous Japanese label “Howling Bull”. With the English lyrics of these 5 songs, this album got the chance to be release in the US, Japan and South Korea, making the album ‘Desirous Infection” one of the band’s first worldwide hit albums. May 2001, this was a year a new chapter started to open yet again for Diablo. Diablo was granted the chance to open for Pantera in their Korean concert tour. In August of the same year, Diablo opened the doors to the second Diablo concert, stood headliner for the 5thBudweiser Rock Concert and was given the opportunity to join in the making of the compilation album “Hardcore 2001”. With success coming in from each door left and right, and new chapters opening and closing this uprising of success just kept rolling in for Diablo. In October of 2002, Diablo got to concrete yet another landmark milestone along the band’s timeline. Diablo performed for the honorable Seo Taiji band comeback concert, and also got to perform at the ETPFEST alongside famous artists such as Tommy lee band, Skrape, YG Family and Pia. After the success of the first album “Desirous Infection” Diablo got another chance to make yet another killer hit “worldwide” album titled “Undefined”. The second album “Undefined” got the honor to we master recorded and mixed at Los Angeles Based “Cherokee Studios” with the world renowned Master artist “Rod Dee”. Rob Dee has done many mastering of albums for famous artist in the past such as, The Beatles and Frank Sinatra. This album was one of the last albums that Rob got to work on and released, making this an even more special album to Diablo and to the tribute of Rob Dee. The album “Undefined” became the landmark milestone for the 11th anniversary of the band Diablo. With the change of bassist to Jaepil ‘Fly’ Yoon, and the addition of Seo taiji band based guitarist “Changrok ‘Rock’ Choi, Diablo set up a new system of twin guitars making for a deeper stronger guitar sound to the band. This album was special in that the Main title song “Dust” had the opportunity to have famous Korean rock band “YB Band’s” frontman Doo hyun Yoon be featured in the song. Not only this, but the song itself was a new take in the fusion of hip hop beats and heavy metal sounds to make a new blend of psychedelic insane rock tunes that could blend and engage in different genres of music. The song “Dust” and the album “Undefined” became one of Diablos most prized albums yet to come. In 2012 with the chance to open for Judas Priest in their Korean Concert, Diablo released their Mini EP album “Dumb” in December. Gracefully closing the curtains to a past chapter and opening a new door to a new one. With backing out of bassist Jaepil Yoon, Diablo was in crisis, but not for long, The Seo Taiji band based bassist Joonghyung Kang was soon entered into the scene and instantly became a sturdy backbone to the band. Thankfully due to the superb skills and experience of Joon the band had none, almost little down time in the making of the album. The album “Dumb” is a special album in that all music, lyrics, album artwork, and design was done and created by the members of the band. Also, this album was made with the help of worldly known Sony Music, making this a worldwide international sensation. “Abandoned”, “Your Name”, “Dumb”, “Harlem Desire (remake)” are the 4 tracks within this new album “Dumb.” All tracks have different stories behind them and all have the blood, sweat, and time of each member of Diablo within them. After 2 years without any new albums, “Dumb” was born and a new saga began. Although there were issues with mastering, and some other minor personal band issues, the band stuck together and worked through all the storms and brought out a killer masterpiece. With Drummer Dee Choo leading the squad the members of Diablo worked hard together to form a tight bond a “family” that stood strong together to come out where the band is standing now. Frontman Jang Hak “Crane”, with his artistic background, Damien with his insane flying fingers on the guitar, Rock and Joon with their incredible showman-ship, past experiences in Korea’s legendary rock bands, and energetic-skilled fingering and musical talents, Diablo is a full throttle threat and legendary leader in the world of Heavy Metal. It’s characters like this that meshed so well together to make a crazy good album like “Dumb”. This album has breached out of the barriers of heavy metal trying new fusions of different genres and tastes in music, making a new blend in taste within this album. Currently Diablo is signed with Coral Bridge Entertainment, and is working on making tours around the world. Diablo strives on a daily basis to make awesome music for the people, and work hard to righteously stand as the legend of Heavy metal in South Korea. With the ever changing issues in music and with the increase of cyber music downloading, Diablo works hard to stick to the roots and originality of all things music. Diablo has recently done showcase concerts for the current Mini album “Dumb”, and are also the current sponsor/ headliner for RODFEST 2013 in South Korea. Diablo as gone through many hoops in life, and currently is still on the run; the world can expect much more to come from Diablo as their saga keeps on rising till the end of time. Diablo is too strong to surrender to any source of pain and dismay-! ROCK WILL NEVER DIE-!1980년에 생산된 세계적인 스포츠카 '람보르기니 디아블로(Lamborghini Diablo)'에서 영감을 얻어 밴드 명을 채택하게 된 디아블로(Diablo)는 1993년 9월에 결성된 4인조 스래시 메틀 밴드로서 박정원(보컬), 김수한(기타), 김형중(베이스)이 주축이 되어 탄생했다.

디아블로는 밴드를 결성하고도 멤버들의 군문제로 하여금 실질적인 활동이 불가능했으나, 1996년 군제대 후, 다시금 각자의 자리를 찾아 멤버로 가담하면서 밴드를 이끌어 나가기 시작하였다. 1997년 국내 스래시/데쓰 메틀 밴드들의 옴니버스 앨범 「정당방위」의 참여와 함께 8월에는 김형중(베이스)을 정식 멤버로 영입하면서 안정된 라인업을 이루게 된다.

이들이 대중들에게 인기를 얻은 것은 1999년 「산울림 헌정앨범」에서 <내 마음은 황무지>라는 곡을 자신들의 스타일로 리메이크하여 부른 것이 결정적인 계기가 되었다. 그리고 2000년 3월에는 첫 번째 단독 공연인 '반란I'을 기획하여 열광적인 무대를 마련하였으며, 7월에는 정규 앨범 「Desirouns Infection」을 밴드결성 7년 만에 내놓아 상당한 음악적 평가를 받게 된다. 앨범의 수록곡들 중에서 영어가사로 불려진 5곡은 일본의 헤비 메틀 전문 레이블인 '하울링 불(Howling Bull)'을 통하여 일본 전역과 미국에서 발매되면서 한·미·일 3개국에서 연이어 발매된 최초의 앨범이 되기도 했다.

2001년 5월 디아블로는, 판테라(Pantera) 내한공연의 오프닝 무대와 8월에 있었던 '반란II' 단독 콘서트, '제5회 버드 록 콘서트'에 참여하면서 다양한 이벤트 무대를 밟았으며, 「Hardcore 2001」이라는 컴필레이션 앨범에 참여하기도 한다. 2002년 10월에는 서태지의 컴백 무대이자, 그가 직접 주최한 '기괴한 사람들의 콘서트'라는 타이틀로 진행된 'ETPFEST'에서 타미 리 밴드(Tommy Lee Band), 스크레이프(Skrape), YG 패밀리(YG Family), 피아(Pia) 등과 더불어 파워풀한 그들만의 에너지를 보여주기도 했다.


첫 번째 앨범 ‘Desirous Infection’의 한,일 동시발매로 한국 Rock시장의 부흥을 알렸던 DIABLO는11년 만에 다시 한번 한,일 동시발매로 두 번째 앨범 ‘Undefined’를 발매하게 되었다.

타이틀 곡 ‘Dust’는 인기밴드 YB의 보컬 윤도현이 피쳐링으로 참여한 곡이다. 힙합의 그루브를 헤비메탈에 접목시킨 것이 특징이며, 헤비메탈 안에만 머무르지 않고 다양한 장르를 접목시켜 새로운 음악을 개척하려는 DIABLO의 의지가 담겨있는 센스 있는 곡이라고 할 수 있다.

서태지 밴드 출신 Rock(최창록)과 베이시스트 윤재필이 멤버로 가세하면서 기존 원기타 시스템에서 트윈기타 시스템으로 변신에 성공하였다. 이로 인해 더욱 풍성한 사운드의 두 번째 앨범이 완성되었다.

또한 Beatles, Frank Sinatra 등의 음반을 녹음했던 체로키 스튜디오와 명 프로듀서 故Rob Dee의 마지막 작업으로 더욱 의미가 있는 이번 DIABLO의 ‘Undefined’ 발매는 한국 헤비메탈의 또 하나의 이정표를 세웠다 할 수 있다.

그리고 2년후 디아블로가 미니앨범 ‘덤’(Dumb)을 발표했다.
이번 앨범은 2000년 발표한 첫 정규앨범 ‘디자이어러스 인펙션’과 2010년 발표한 2집 ‘언디파인드’에 이어 2년 만에 발표하는 디아블로의 세 번째 앨범이다. 첫 트랙인 ‘어밴던드’를 필두로 타이틀곡 ‘유어 네임’ ‘덤’ ‘할렘 디자이어 등 모두 4곡이 담겨 있다.

스튜디오에서의 마스터링 작업과 뮤직비디오 촬영 등으로 발매 시기가 당초 계획보다 한 달가량 늦춰졌다.

밴드의 리더인 추명교(드럼)를 비롯해 크로우에서 활동하던 장학(보컬), 김수한(기타), 최창록(기타)과 서태지 밴드에서 활동하던 강준형(베이스)을 새로이 영입, 5명으로 구성된 디아블로는 이번 미니앨범에서 디아블로의 본래 색깔인 헤비메탈 음악 본연의 강하고 거칠고 속도감 있는 사운드를 들려준다.

동시에, 과거에는 시도하지 않았던 멜로디가 강조된 느린 템포의 곡 ‘유어 네임’을 타이틀곡으로 내세우고 1980년대 세계적으로 히트한 유로댄스곡 ‘할렘 디자이어’를 강력한 메탈사운드로 리메이크, 새로운 음악적 변신을 시도했다.
디아블로의 이번 미니앨범은 특히 세계적인 음반사인 소니뮤직에서 유통과 배급을 담당, 디아블로의 앨범과 디지털 음원은 국내뿐만 아니라 전 세계 음원 사이트에서 구매할 수 있다.
