Who knew you could find good hardcore Latino-inspired metal in Virginia? Not us. I thought it was just full of lovers and those really skinny cigarettes. Well, Virginia-based Saint Diablo’s music is a combination of hardcore metal mixed with some spicy Latin melodies. The four piece metal band is composed of Tito Quinones (vocals), Justin Adams (guitar), Brian Bush (drums) and Justin “Lefty” Randal (bass).
Saint Diablo is about to release a new self-titled record, third full-length, on July 10 via Eclipse Records. The “Latino Metal Masters” have have been churning out rip-your-face-off metal since 1995. According to vocalist Tito Quinones, the band has “always done bilingual music and blended multi-cultural aspects of rock, metal, and groove,” however, this time they “are also doing entirely Spanish versions of some of” their favorite songs. These Jägermeister-loving metal heads have played with bands like Slayer, Drowning Pool, Chimaira, Hatebreed, Devil Driver, Soulfly, Fear Factory, Mushroomhead, GWAR, Flaw, Busta Rhymes, and many others.
