Hey there, tech fiends. It's that time of the week again. Before we dive into today's focus, here's the usual weekly reminder that if you're looking for even more sick bands to hear, all prior editions of this series can be perused here.
I’ve got the full album stream of Divinihility from Canadian newcomers Atræ Bilis for you today. The band formed fairly recently in 2018 and I’m aware of it due to knowing their bassist Brendan Campbell (Daemogog, Octexosis, etc.) and the guy who recorded most of the album which is Matthew Roach from Rain City Studios. As I am keen to point out when it happens, if I get anything wrong, I didn’t get a ton of information, and not a lot is publicly available about this project so I apologize. As usual, you can read on below for more about the album out this Friday via Transcending Obscurity, or, skip to the music stream below which is what matters most.
At its core, Divinhility is a pitch-black outing into dissonant death realms forged with a technical air while riding an old-school death metal influence in a way all their own. The release clocks in at under 30 minutes in six songs which is damn near perfect in my estimation as a fan of all killer, no filler type releases.
As usual, I asked if I could get some more information about the release and the band was kind enough to share that “Divinihility not only signifies our inception as a band, but it also offers a lens into a larger world that you’ll be experiencing shortly.Its narrative involves a profound psychedelic experience, passing through death’s gate and being reborn as a maggot inside the same, departed body. The support from Transcending Obscurity Records and the press thus far has been humbling. More to come. Death impends."
I'd urge you to check out our early stream of Divinihility that's embedded below. You can pre-order the album through the Transcending Obscurity Records label page here and through Bandcamp here. You can also follow the band over on the Atræ Bilis Facebook Page.
