Yes Yes Yes!!! The recordings for our upcoming album are finally complete!!! And the way we see it, this is going to be our strongest record so far.
Of course it also needs to sound that way. And for that reason we are very excited to announce that Tobias Lindell will take care of the mix.
For those who are not familiar with his name, Tobias has produced and mixed many hit records through out the years with bands such as Europe, H.E.A.T., Hardcore Superstar ,...
We can assure you: it's worth waiting for!
After 8-months of stage abstinence we are extremely happy to announce our second apperance at Chlaus-Rock in Oberegg.
We will use that occasion to shoot a video for a song from our upcoming album - it would be great if as many as possible could be part of that night and make a memorable Video.
Further infos to be given later on.
The songs for our upcoming album are all written now. We are just about to start recording them.

Please cheer him on and give him a warm welcome!

New CD Review
HardHarderHeavy wrote a new review for Perfect Sin.
We are very pleased with these 5 points out of 7. Thank you very much!
With great regret we have to announce that Bernie quits the Black Diamonds.
Here is his official statement:
"After 4 years, one CD, a short advertising appearance, various Shows and Mini-Tours, a Sweden-Studio-Trip, Video-Shootings and countless cool, funny and unbelievable adventures I will leave the the Black Diamonds. Different reasons led to this decision which will not be stated here.
It was a superb and unforgetable time and without you - the fans - it would have been impossible! So this is the time to address a big fukking thanks to you!!
To the boys I only wish all the best for the future. I will definitely shout along in the first row at one or another show... ;-)
Now that I quit the Black Diamonds will need a new bassplayer.
If you think you're up for that job, please send your details through this form: Black Diamonds Bassist wanted
Further details regarding my final show and so on will be communicated later on. It all depends on the availability of a successor.
See ya on stage!
We would like to thank Bernie for the great time, the commitment and the friendship and wish him all the best!
Andi, Manu, Mich
