Divinity - The Singularity


Divinity
The Singularity
Candlelight

It’s a given that the singer in a death metal band is going to sound like a starving werewolf – it’s the first requirement to play the style. But Divinity frontbeast Sean Jenkins sounds positively rabid on The Singularity, every roar and growl the call of some voracious carnivore just one pane of glass away from being unleashed upon a trembling populace. Beg to Consume, indeed. This particular hellbrute is backed by musicians that twist and turn on the proverbial dime, shifting from soaring prog to skullgrinding thrash in an instant, Jenkins ripping at their flesh as they go. Occasionally the transitions don’t move as smoothly as they aught, like a well-dressed epicure leading you into his abode to show off his fine taste in furniture, then beating you to death with a $1000 chair. Most of the time, though, the marriage of majesty and brutality is a happy one, even if brutality definitely wears the pants in the family.
