    The Scarlet - Single Version
Intense, sensual & arcane, Diamond Black are a dark-rock quartet from London. Founded by Ben Christo (guitarist of The Sisters of Mercy) & Finnish singer JI Turunen, Diamond Black bring you crushing riffs, mesmerizing electronica & cinematic choruses; a dark fusion of irreverence, intrigue & isolation.
"Aggressive, emotive, seductive & compelling, Diamond Black are forerunners in a new era of dark rock." – MICHAEL RAINBOW, THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE
"Razor-sharp riffs slice into ethereal soundscapes, emotive & searing melodies... turn up and listen on repeat!" - MARK GEMINI THWAITE, THE MISSION?
"Wide dynamics, key shifts, lush harmonies & raw power are breath of fresh air in the monochromatic sea of current rock music.” – DOUGLAS BLAIR, W.A.S.P.
"Stunning... packed full of energy, attitude & hooks, hits the hotspot between classic &contemporary... one of the most exciting new bands I’ve heard in years.” – MICHAEL MCKEEGAN, THERAPY?
Debut single ‘Sorrow’ premiered on in 2017 to great acclaim: hailed & shared by members of Rob Zombie, rotated on Scuzz TV & featured in Bass Guitar Magazine. ‘Ghost in the Glass’ followed in 2018, garnering near 140,000 Spotify plays.
In June 2019, Diamond Black signed a worldwide deal with the legendary Cargo/Livewire Records. 3rd single, ‘The Scarlet’ will be the band’s first release with the label, revealing a more introspective side whilst maintaining DB's signature haunting, heartfelt heaviness.
Full album due spring 2020.
