So this is an interesting gem from Calgary metallers Divinity. Their latest offering, The Immortalist is the culmination of half a decade of hard work, consisting of their last two EP's and four new tracks rounding out the record and creating an epic trilogy. The band play a unique brand of devastating tech death with glorious production and powerful clean vocals. They take a lot of the foundational concepts behind the genre, turn them on their head and give their own spin to them, making for some truly fascinating listening.
The band had this to say:
We're very proud of our new album! Our dedication to song writing, recording and producing these 12 songs over the past 5 years has been a crazy musical journey and a huge learning experience that we will never forget. Our lyrical content and artwork is based on an original science-fiction concept story about a character who wakes up in a random field within an intricate crop circle with no memory of who he is or how he got there. The character is then thrown into a crazy adventure and eventually learns who he is and how to become immortal. There's so much more to the story but we don't want to give it all way just yet.
Our Digipak CD contains a 24-page booklet that showcases this entire concept and we have plans to develop a special section on our website (www.divinity.ca) that will give users a way to fully experience the story, songs, lyrics, and visual aspect of our new album.
