Finnish metallers DIABLO have replaced APOCALYPTICA as one of the opening acts for METALLICA on July 15 at the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland. Also appearing on the bill is H.I.M.
DIABLO entered the national album chart in its home country in January 2006 at No. 1 (ahead of MADONNA!) with the band's fourth full-length release, "Mimic 47". The CD's first single, "Mimic 47", was backed with a cover of DURAN DURAN's "A View to a Kill".
"Mimic 47" is the follow-up to "Eternium", which received a wider European release through Drakkar Entertainment in September 2004. That album debuted on the Finnish album chart at position No. 3 after it was issued in Finland in January 2004.
