The enigmatic artist known as Diavola is a musician originally from Richmond, California, United States. With a love of the musical arts since the age of 9, Diavola (aka Antoine Reuben-Diavola) has played a range of musical instruments and styles, ranging from the laid back smooth sounds of Jazz, to the chaotic ultra fast blast beat styling of extreme metal. Diavola first gained notoriety in 1996 through his live performances during his time as a member of the cult underground Black Metal band Black Goat. Throughout 2001-2007 Diavola played and toured nationally throughout the United States as a drummer with the bands Hadan, and The Lord Weird Slough Feg (Slough Feg). After his time in the band Slough Feg ran it’s course, Diavola decided to write and record his debut solo release. Filled with themes of technology, artificial intelligence, and extraterrestrial life, 2007’s “NoxiLux Beta” was an innovative array of ambiguous sound-scape’s, surreal melodies, and provocative arrangements, with heavy IDM overtones. In 2008 Diavola released one of his future classic albums - 10 tracks of conceptual cinemaesque minimalism entitled “Radix III”. The journey and evolution continued as Diavola’s songs blasted off outside the known galaxy clusters with hyper-velocity to explore ‘strange new worlds’. Diavola also releases music under the aliases Bit.Krusher and DJ Monte Carlo (aka Monte Carlo, DJ).
