DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA / The Butcher's Ballroom [2006]

It's not everyday a band like Sweden's Gothic avant-garde metal band, Diablo Swing Orchestra comes along and wakes you up with a swift kick in the ass.
On their 2006 debut album, The Butcher's Ballrom, the eclectic DSO seamlessly stitches together opera, swing, thrash, jazz and even flamenco.  At times their chamber style music is a little muddled up and fails to interest but for the most part this album is an entertaining, brilliantly executed wild ride following in the footsteps of Unexpect, Mr. Bungle and Ulver.
