Dioivo is an extreme metal duo founded in Vigo in 2016, born by setting music to Rosalía de Castro’s poem ‘Sempre pola morte esperas’ as a result of a contest commemorating the anniversary of the author. From there, they went on with the idea of mixing influences such as melodic black metal or thrash using the Galician language, drums, guitar and voice. Since its inception, the band is made up of Dani and Jacobo, who had already clashed in Rust in Peace.They soon began to be regulars in some of Vigo’s venues (Transylvania, Frenopátiko) and, in October, they release their first EP, “Dioivo” (2016), recorded and mixed by Pablo López Figueroa. In this first album, half an hour long, they incorporate interludes of classic guitar, a line that will become a key part of the group's sound. With the self-released album out, Dioivo began playing in concert halls throughout Galicia, in the Basque town of Amurrio or in Segovia. They were also awarded the 2nd prize at the Xuventude Crea contest of Xunta de Galicia.In 2018, they record their first LP, “Dioivo II” (2019), at Marín’s Unreal Studios; 50 minutes along 8 tracks where they incorporate the 12-string electric guitar. The album was released by the Spanish label Darkwoods. Their follow-up comes in 2021,"Dioivo III", recorded by Manu Coia in Vigo and featuring vocalists Dana and Marcos (Mileth). They also release "Retorno a Tagen Ata", an 11-minute track based on the novel's namesake by Méndez Ferrín where the author himself takes part in the story, recorded by Dany Soengas.
