    Now I know what I will be listening to tomorrow. This band is probably the best thing I have been exposed to through this board. There has been quite a lot of music that I checked out due to other folks talking about them here, but ABC Diabolo are simply amazing. I do not know how I let this band pass me by when it was active but I am glad I caught on eventually.

    ABC Diablo are absolutely amazing! My favorite tune...and very relevant.

    Hoping to spark a conversation here or there...

    I thought ABC Diabolo's Last Intoxication of the Senses was a gamechanger (to borrow an awful term I hear a lot these days, so I should apologize for ever using it). It was also, possibly, the best crossover album of the 90s. If not the best, at the very least, it was the evolution of 80's crossover; that unexpected next phase. For the first time, I associated that album with The Dagda's 1st album. While nearly entirely different, I think they share some common ground insofar as tonality being such a key ally. Raw. Chaotic. Dense. Unique. Swirling atmosphere. And now that I'm thinking about it, I might have to add Lost's Fear-Strach to that short list of dense, tonally-anchored, highly atmospheric albums. Of course, this is probably just my ear and associations making little sense to anyone else. Not that I'd ever agree, ABC Diabolo could just as easily be considered a more complex Hellnation or something. ABC's 2nd album, while a new direction, was certainly more successful than The Dagda's counterpart.

    Further, and potentially more mistaken identity, I'm thinking Give Rise to Doubts was influenced by Norwegian HC, like Kort Prosess and Bannlyst, which were the precursor to bands like His Hero is Gone, Tragedy, and all the melodic crust they would then make trendy. Could Give Rise to Doubts and the Result (Japan) album be the bridge between Norwegian HC and all that? I'm going off memory here. I haven't listened to Give Rise to Doubts for a very long time, and I'm also having a difficult time recalling much about it other than the residual vibe that has stuck with me. I hope I'm not being too silly here.

(took me couple years to realize what the cover of lios was...)-always thought it was a garden hose...

    Prong, AntiSchism, Nausea...all associations I doubt I'd ever make. I love talking music. How people hear things is awesome.

    The 7" is on the Last Intoxication CD.
