Pandora's Piñata is the third studio album by Swedish avant-garde metal band Diablo Swing Orchestra. It was released on May 14, 2012 in Europe through Candlelight Records and on May 22, 2012 in North America through Sensory Records. It is the last album with singer AnnLouice Lögdlund, and the only album to feature Petter Karlsson on drums; he left the band earlier that year, after recording his parts.

I've been a fan since the first record, but presumably there are those who aren't familiar with the band, and can't quite conceive of what Diablo Swing Orchestra should sound like

Because Diablo Swing Orchestra's debut is vastly superior to anything Ayreon ever did. But the problem with Diablo Swing Orchestra is that they got weaker with every subsequent release. Well, of course I disagree with that. Couldn't even finish listening to DSO's debut as I found the music ridiculous. Yes, still have it in my debut albums list because so many people seem to love that album, and that list isn't really subjective (in the sense that there are quite a few albums that I don't really like or even really dislike).

Diablo Swing Orchestra is probably the best example of what has been called Avant Garde Metal, a genre characterized by a mixture of sounds and styles. Without coming off as pretentious, DSO manages to combine everything under the sun, delivering a product that, without a doubt, is bigger than the sum of its elements. Despite having set the bar very high with their previous albums, Pandora’s Piñata, the band’s latest release, has managed to, once again, demonstrate that they’re far from running out of ideas. DSO’s combination is truly magnificent. Pandora’s Piñata is a breath of fresh air in a sea of generic music where artists seem to be running out of ideas. Without a doubt, Diablo Swing Orchestra has done it again. Do yourself a favor and get this album. IMPORTANT: Back in 2007 DSO released The Butcher’s Ballrom online for free.

This superbly orchestrated album blends multiple genres with grace and cohesion, which makes it a real treat for anyone who's willing to venture into the realm of exuberant, artistic music that ranges from cinematic to theatrical. Hawk Eyes Everything Is Fine. Wildbirds and Peacedrums Rhythm.
