Divine Element

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (6 Votes)

Greek Black Metal is kind of its own thing, but I have to say I have never heard any that I really liked. Divine Element are just now getting their debut released, and I'm finding it more engaging than anything by Varathron or Rotting Christ, but still not amazing by any stretch. This is very riffy, with a warm and fuzzy guitar sound that is much more what I would expect from a NWOBHM band. Overall the sound is good for an independent release, but almost a melodic Death Metal kind of sound. The riffs are good, though they do repeat more than they should. There are some good hooks and melodies in this, and overall Divine Element have made an entertaining disk that does not stick too closely to genre conventions and shows promise for the future.
