Darkwave postpunks from Chile
For the past seven years, a femme-heavy Chilean powerhouse of dark dance stimulation has been releasing shot after shot of digital albums, waiting for the perfect moment to strike North America and unleash its black fury on our hungry masses. Utilizing the best in throwback synth to provide bottom-end drones and more liquid whirs carrying the melodies, Diavol Strain‘s vocals vary from damning shouts to wailing dirges with a steady supply of simple yet effective guitar licks. If you’re a fan of contemporary West Coast deathrock, or classic postpunk like Xmal Deutschland, look no further. Technically, it is on the West Coast, just of a different continent.
