Divinity are an insanely talented band who’ve just released an amazing album that just isn’t getting the attention it deserves. I was listening to the full album yesterday on my iPod… and “fucking wow” is still about all I can come up with. It’s it’s complex, it’s progressive, it’s deep, it’s brutal, it’s shreddy, it’s hooky, it’s artsy… it’s everything you (I) want a metal record to be. Every musician in the band is top-notch, including vocalist Sean Jenkins with whom I’m especially impressed (this from a guy who ordinarily doesn’t focus on vocals).
Canada's metal wizards Divinity have just released a vibrant, explosive video for "Lay In The Bed You've Made," from the band's Candlelight Records debut The Singularity.
Divinity is easily among Canada’s elite bands (along with Into Eternity for example) that have that the new ‘Western Canadian’ sound that morphs Death, Thrash, Prog and crazy chops into one sweet package.
Technical death metal fans will find Divinity to be a hybrid of several genres that all have a hand in formulating the band’s sonic reverence. From soft piano to sky-raising clean vocals, every attempt is made to show that monotony and predictability is not in Divinity’s DNA.
DIVINITY: F*CKING WOW ...Divinity definitely make my balls quiver.
Divinity is made up of 6 musicians with 4 of them being original members of nearly 20 years of playing together. They're described as Progressive Death Metal and compared to bands such as Soilwork, Strapping Young Lad, Death, and Fear Factory.

Divinity, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, started in 1997 and began playing live shows in 1999. In 2001, the band released its first EP album called "Intensify" which received a lot of local (Canadian) praise after sending in a couple songs to BWBK's 'Knuckletrack' CD sampler. A music video was released for the song "World of Pain" in 2003 and the band played local shows building show experience.
Fast forward to 2007, Divinity independantly releases their first full-length album called "Allegory" and is picked up by Nuclear Blast Records just 3 months after the independent release. Obviously, this was a major turning point for the band!
In 2008, Divinity took on its first major tour by joining the Summer Slaughter Canada tour. This gave them the opportunity to connect to high calibre booking agents and other acts such as Dying Fetus, Whitechapel, and Necrophagist.
In 2009, Divinity spent it's time creating their 2nd full-length album, called "The Singularity" which was released under Candlelight Records with a very positive response from numerous reviewers and listeners.
Since the release of The Singularity, Divinity has toured Canada numerous times over and has received massive support and praise from around the world.
The band is currently releasing a trilogy EP concept album now turned into a full-length LP, called 'The Immortalist' availabe May 26th, 2017 at all digital music stores and as a special limited run CD Digipak.
