Diabolus Incarnate "The Phantom Of The Opera" Killer Video!!

By Nemesis Inc.
Below can be seen an amazing video for The Phantom Of The Opera by the South African project "Diabolus Incarnate". This video is a tribute to the original 1925 The Phantom Of The Opera created by Nemesis Inc. "Rudie Swart". 

"Huge tanx go's out to Dieter @ Diabolus Incarnate for making this brilliant cover track available for this vid. "shotalot dude hoop jy geniet dit !" Adds Rudie.

Born in 2010, a project was brewing in the home studio of Dieter (Guitarist/Vocals/Composer) in Johannesburg South Africa. Select compositions kept aside, now an arsenal of endless material. In time these compositions became songs and released amongst the masses. Within time, the project began to attract attention by many. In September 2012 it was decided to be put to the test live by recruiting Sven (Drummer), Nicholas (Guitarist/Vocals) and Arnold (Bassist). Diabolus Incarnate is gender as a black metal band while at the same time adding orchestral elements to the music.

The Phantom of the Opera (French: Le Fantôme de l'Opéra) is a novel by French writer Gaston
Leroux. It was first published as a serialisation in Le Gaulois from September 23, 1909 to January 8, 1910. Initially, the story sold very poorly upon publication in book form and was even out of print several times during the twentieth century; it is overshadowed by the success of its various film and stage adaptations. The most notable of these were the 1925 film depiction, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 musical.

The Phantom of the Opera is a 1925 silent film adaptation of the Gaston Leroux's novel of the same name directed by Rupert Julian. The film featured Lon Chaney in the title role as the masked and facially deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House , causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to force the management to make the woman he loves a star. It is most famous for Lon Chaney's intentionally horrific, self-applied make-up, which was kept a studio secret until the film's premiere.

The film also features Mary Philbin, Norman Kerry, Arthur Edmund Carewe, Gibson Gowland, John St. Polis and Snitz Edwards. The only surviving cast member is Carla Laemmle (born 1909), niece of producer Carl Laemmle, who played a small role as "prima ballerina" in the film when she was about 15.

This flim is by far the closest to Leroux's novel and it is considered by most fans to be the best flim version to date.

The movie was adapted by Elliott J. Clawson, Frank M. McCormack (uncredited), Tom Reed (titles) and Raymond L. Schrock. It was directed by Rupert Julian, with supplemental direction by Edward Sedgwick, and Lon Chaney (unconfirmed).
