Divine Image is a heavy metal band hailing from Sunderland, a city located in the North East of England. Formed in 2021, the band consists of members who share a deep passion for metal music and a desire to create music that is both heavy and thought-provoking. The band's sound is characterised by heavy guitar riffs, thunderous drums, and powerful vocals. Their music draws inspiration from a range of metal subgenres including hardcore, thrash, death, and black metal. Lyrically, they tackle themes of the darker aspects of the human experience



on the July 29th, the band's first EP, "Sectioned," was released, and it's a great debut. The EP contains six tracks that showcase the band's musical prowess and versatility.

The EP, starts with "Звуки Ада," which translates to "Sounds of Hell," sets the tone for a haunting and atmospheric listening experience. The eerie introduction serves as a prelude to the rest of the EP, which showcases the band's ability to seamlessly blend different genres and create a sound that is entirely their own.

As the EP title track "Sectioned" begins, the listener is immediately hit with hard hitting heavy riffs and pounding drums, which perfectly complement the ominous atmosphere established in the opening track. The band's proficiency in creating intricate and complex arrangements is on full display here, and it's clear that they have a deep understanding of how to craft a song that is both musically engaging and emotionally resonant.


"Cabin for a Killer"
Although the clean vocals at the beginning of the song have a minor flaw that makes them sound slightly flat, "Cabin for a Killer" is still a fantastic track that is definitely worth checking out. The song's catchy riff and excellent sound are sure to stay with you for hours after listening, and the rest of the vocals are impressive and skillfully executed.


"The Unseen" which we heard earlier in the year which has now been re-recorded to match the tone of the rest of the EP.

It's always interesting to see how a piece of music can evolve over time. The decision to re-record "The Unseen" in order to match the tone of the rest of the EP is a thoughtful one and shows the level of care and attention to detail that the artist puts into their work. By doing so, they are ensuring that the EP is a cohesive body of work that is both enjoyable to listen to and emotionally resonant. It's also worth noting that re-recording a song can be a challenging process. The artist needs to find the right balance between staying true to the original vision and making the necessary changes to achieve the desired tone. It requires a keen ear and a willingness to experiment until the right sound is achieved.


Furthermore, I must express my admiration for the way "Transcendence" and "Night's Inferno" are both equally stunning and satisfying conclusions to the EP. It is worth noting that "Night's Inferno" is my personal favourite track on the EP, as it truly exemplifies the band's potential. The way the melodies and instrumentation work together in harmony is truly remarkable, leaving the listener with an unforgettable experience.


Overall, I highly recommend this EP to any metal fan who is yearning for something fresh and exciting. Divine Image's "Sectioned" is a perfect example of a band that is pushing boundaries and creating new sounds. The EP is a testament to the band's musical ingenuity and talent, and it is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates good music
