Darediablo biography
DAREDIABLO is a New York band of self professed AC/DC fans that specializes in instrumentals. The group was formed in 1999 by Jake GARCIA [bass], Matthew HOLFORD [guitar/organ], and Peter KARP [drums]. This lineup released the heavy, jam band style album 'Tunnel of Fire' on indie label Orchard in 2000, and the next year saw the double EP 'Sky Cohete/Subaquatico' released on Ear Meat Records featuring an epic cover of Black Sabbath's War Pigs.

2002 saw the band settling down. Peter KARP was replaced by Chad ROYCE for live performances and eventually joined the band on a more permanent basis, forming the current lineup. DAREDIABLO also took Southern Music as their constant label. The subsequent albums 'Bedtime Stories' and 'Feeding Frenzy'(2002&2003) saw the band releasing shorter, slicker pieces and adding spacier instrumentation, sound effects and Tom Waits covers to their set list.

The band's style truly culminated on their 2005 release 'Twenty Paces'. Rough but tight instrumentals abound, recalling an early '70s DEEP PURPLE with avantgarde leanings and a smattering of Floydian sound effects for good measure. Since tours to support the album in 2006, the band has seemingly disappeared. However, rumors occasionally bubble up from the indie rock scene online that the band is just waiting to resurface.

3 stars Darediablo is an american band formed in 1999 in USA and releasing so far 4 albums, this one is their second one named Bedtimes story from 2002. I was quite pleasent surprised about this album, Darediablo plays a kind of heavy rog with great keybords arrangements over some spacier instrumentation. Maybe at some point they have some influnces from Hawkwind, or the bands from early to mid '70's period when this kind of music was very popular. The album has a lots of instrumental passages from more up tempo like the title track who opens the album, great keybords elements shown here, to a more calm almost space and psychedelic in atmosphere but always keeping the listner with ears opened all the time. The passages are not very complex, they rely more on composition then on virtousity, but that is not a bad thing after all. Good album all the way , nothing realy impressive but quite good and enjoyble. I will give 3 stars for this one. They are very uknown band to larger public, not a review yet on any of their albums, but maybe with mine on this album the listners will open thir eyes and try to listen to this obscure band from heavy prog realm.
Thanks to atavachron for the artist addition.
