Thaurachs of Borsu

Rated 4.2/5 (84%) (5 Votes)

Divine Element is a two-man band from Greece and Hungary, and that mix tells you a lot about their sound. This is a mixture of Death and Black Metal with a distinctly melodic and epic bent. I hear a little Dissection, a little Amon Amarth, a little Rotting Christ and a little Sear Bliss. This is much more epic and shaded than brutal, so it's not the usual sort of Death/Black at all. Rolling riffs, epic arrangements, highly melodic passages and themes, all punctuated by some chugging heaviness and deep, bellowing vocals. There is a tremendous amount of detail in the guitar work, and every listen I seem to hear something I didn't notice before. At first spin, I wished it was a bit heavier and more aggressive, but more listens have seen me tune into it and I really enjoy the expansive, expressive compositions. Fans of melodic, epic extreme metal should absolutely not pass this up.
