VIZA is back in the recording studio! close ×


Los Angeles, CA – VI·ZA is excited to announce the release of the group’s ninth new digital song release for 2017-2018. Following the online releases of “Viktorious”, “Cash Karma”, “Velvet Shade”, “A World of Broken Mirrors”,  “Aphrodite”,  “Vicious Game”,  “Pinches” and “Sheep” amidst acclaim and the anticipation of a loyal fan base, “Diabolic Angel” has now arrived for listeners to enjoy a melodic adventure of music and art.


“Diabolic Angel is a song I wrote about a film director (played by an angel) who fell in love with his starlet (played by a demon) on the set of his Armageddon cinema DIABOLIC ANGEL. It plays along the whole belief that opposites do attract, and at the time of writing I was listening to Type O Negative, so I guess that’s where the whole dark 60’s swing motif came from”, said K’noup.


“This song does a great job incorporating some of our inherent Middle Eastern musical influences with our rock sensibilities”, said Kzirian. “Had fun experimenting with different accents and funky time patterns on the oud,” he added.


After returning to the stage in early 2017 the band has been writing and recording actively the past several months, concentrating on composing new material as the band enters a new chapter of its growth. The band is excited to close the book on these first 6 releases, which has been compiled as a new EP named “The Unorthodox Revival: Volume I”. VI·ZA is continuing to write and record a next batch of 6 tracks, which will populate the second volume of “The Unorthodox Revival” series. Subsequent songs – such as the March 1, 2018 release of “Sheep” and this month’s “Diabolic Angel” release – will follow the same monthly digital release format. The band continues to record with talented recording engineer Yury Anisonyan out of Live Wire Studios in Los Angeles. Anisonyan brings his expertise and unique mixing philosophy to VI·ZA’s sound, creating a unique tapestry of soundscapes.

Each new song will be released on VI·ZA’s dedicated YouTube channel at


VI·ZA’s new materialis an exploration of sounds both old and new, and is sure to pique the interest of both diehard fans and new listeners. With vocals and a diverse array of instruments like the oud and duduk to combine with guitar, bass and drums, there are some exciting possibilities when it comes to both the core and potential artistic horizon of the band’s sound. Song titles include “Cash Karma”, “Viktorious”, “A World of Broken Mirrors”, “Aphrodite”, “Velvet Shade” and “Vicious Game”, “Pinches” and “Sheep” representing diverse but resonant themes ranging from satire, continuity and social commentary to raw human emotions like love, loss and passion. Whether it’s VI·ZA’s bread and butter energetic style of pulsing percussion with exotic melodies or experimental ideas exploring the spiritual side of their art, the guys promise to keep things interesting with fans coming back for more, especially when it comes to documenting their work in the studio.


Keep an eye out for the band on Facebook ( and Instagram (@vizamusic).


After releasing several albums, performing at major festivals worldwide, joining System of a Down frontmanSerjTankian for two worldwide tours and supporting Gogol Bordello and Skindred, VIZA is looking to explore a new dimension of sound. As a fixture of the Sunset club scene known for energetic and captivating live performances, VIZA is sure to deliver excitement in the form of shows and new songs in 2018.

I can see the sun in your eyes as your face turns cold as ice.

I can feel the heat down my cheek as the panic starts to creep.


I will be the one who takes it all from you.

I will be the one who walks in your shoes.


Diabolic Angel dancing through the night.

Diabolic Angel a requiem for his wife.

Diabolic Angel.


I will bring the world to its knees and crown you queen of disease.

I will build a door that meets the sky so we can vanish from the light.


I will be the way I always was for you.

I will be the face you never knew.


Diabolic Angel dancing through the night.

Diabolic Angel a requiem for his wife.

Diabolic Angel.


I will be the one who takes it all from you.

I will be the face you never knew.


Diabolic Angel dancing through the night.

Diabolic Angel a requiem for his wife.

Diabolic Angel.
