Divinity are a band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very technical, progressive and melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 compilation album "The Immortalist" which is a collection of 3 ep's that shared the same concept.
A very heavy and technical sound starts off the album along with a great amount of melodic riffing and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals add in a mixture of death metal growls and groove metal style screams along with some clean singing.
Throughout the recording, you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with elements of prog also being used at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and influences of thrash can also be heard in some of the riffing and synths are also used on some of the tracks along with a brief use of classical guitars and spoken word parts are also used briefly..
Divinity creates a recording that remains true to t he melodic, progressive and technical style of death metal t hat was established on previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover metaphysical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Divinity and if you are a fan of melodic, progressive and technical death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Atlas" "D.M.T" "Lucid Creator" and "All Seeing Eyes". 8 out of 10.
