Danny Diablo is an underground hardcore AND hip hop artist. It’s a weird combination to be without nearing the borders of obscurity, but he’s been at it for awhile so he must be doing something right. He’s known for his tattoos and being a thug from Queens. He takes elements from New York’s hip hop and hardcore scenes and twists them into his own style.
His first band came in 1994 when he started Crown of Thorns and rose to minimal acclaim until they broke up in 98. He would also hook up with the other underground heavyweights of his area and formed a hardcore super group Skarhead. After touring the world with the band they called it quits in the late 90s.
This opened the doors for Diablo to explore his hip hop interests. Along with his solo work, he hooked up with the Jewish Gangsterz and Shotblockers. In 2006 he also returned to his hardcore roots via teaming with Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed under the project “Icepick”.
