Divinity Destroyed biography
DIVINITY DESTROYED were formed in Toms River, New Jersey, USA in 1999. Between 2001 and 2003 they would see their most productive era with two full albums, ''Nocturnal Dawn'' and ''Eden in Ashes'' (re-released by Screaming Ferret Wreckords in 2005), and a self-titled EP. The band consisted of Tom WARD (Guitars, Vocals), Mark WARD (Vocals, Guitars, later Keyboards, Vocals), Paul GAITA (Bass), later replaced with Rob PROFT (for the EP), Dan LEONARD (Drums) and Emily HEEREMA (Keyboards), the latter later to be replaced by Johnny HEEREMA. Another two EPs would be produced between 2005 and 2007, namely ''The Plague'' and ''Death or Glory'' that also saw changes in the line-up with Mark WARD picking up the keyboards, Jim COWEN joining on bass and Rick FLANEGAN on guitars. Dan LEONARD was dismissed in March 2008 and later replaced by JOE GRINELLI. However, LEONARD joined the band for their last show in May 2010. The last album was released more than three years after, with the band already disbanded, on December 24th 2013, entitled ''Nova''. Throughout their career they played with bands such as THE MISFITS, OVERKILL, MEGADETH, and FEAR FACTORY.

DIVINITY DESTROYED produced a sound unlike most progressive metal bands of their era, having an eclectic style, mixing elements from bands such as THE MISFITS, PANTERA, DREAM THEATER and the wider alternative metal movement, in a way resembling to the style of LAST CRACK.

2 stars Hit and Miss

In this 17min EP Divinity Destroyed show some of their talent; some beautiful melodies built on excellent (though tried before) piano passages and intricate guitar-keyboard riffage which leads to the creation of a mix of progressive metal fairly uncommon to the era. Although references to late 80's Dream Theater are obvious, the music takes a much more unique approach, reminiscent perhaps of Psychotic Waltz's musical paths (minus the obscure and weird twists and turns). ''November'' is a good example of this, trodding on a slow, ballad-like tempo. The insertion of brutal vocals in ''December'' somehow spoils the sequence but the Savatage-like use of the pianos wins several points. The above mixes with some operatic-minded vocals in the vein of Eternity X but the latter have managed to glue things better.

Conclusion is confusion; a rather ''muddy'' result, with a below-par (demo) production quality (guitars remind me of demos by Greek progressive metal bands in the late 80's-early 90's), average vocals and despite some exceptional ideas on guitars and keyboards, the whole package just does not make it worth pursuing; recommend you start your DD journey elsewhere.

2.5 stars

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
