Fast Forward

 

We haven’t blogged in a bit but things have really been moving forward since last time. Lots of new radio stations made contact requesting to air the new Violent Divine songs. We are really happy about this and appreciate the support from all radio stations world-wide. You do a great job keeping the underground scene alive promoting lots of new bands, just like Violent Divine. Thank you for your devotion to this great cause!

We had a great review from XSROCK who gave 5 out of 5 for Hyperactivity Disorder.  and also Bleeding4Metal and RoxxZone praised the album with nearly top scores. Thank you! We’re happy you enjoy the album as much as we do.

We released the second lyric video Desolation Boulevard from Hyperactivity Disorder and we’re incredibly happy to have that reported by Bravewords. It really gives a great opportunity for even more rock fans to discover Violent Divine. The lyric video is actually filmed one late night driving home from a gig in Stockholm. If you look closely, you might see the crack in the window on the rental bus.

Speaking of Stockholm. Violent Divine will return to the stage for the first time since spring 2014, and it will happen in Stockholm. A new rock club, Headbanger’s Ballroom, located in Göta Källare at Medborgarplatsen will be the scene of the crime on February 10. Doors open at 6PM and the 4 bands will go on early since it’s a Wednesday and we all know the lots of you get out of bed early next morning for yet another day int the grind. But that won’t stop you from enjoying a great night out with some great rock n roll, right!

See you o the inside!

Viral Divine growth

It’s been a while but Violent Divine been busy! The on-line release party on Facebook was massive. Lots of people listened to the stream and gave us nice feedback. Thank You! Hyperactivity Disorder is now available in digital shops all over the planet. If you fancy a hard copy like in the old days, hit us up on info@violentdivine.se or any of the social media where the band is at.

The video For I Am Sin has been viewed almost 1800 times as we write this, and that’s no cheating. We don’t pay for views or likes – ever! Violent Divine alse released the first lyric video from Hyperactivity Disorder. It’s Bloodshared, the last song on the album.

The album is also extremely well recieved by reviewers from all over the world and we’re so happy to have the album rotating on so many radio stations. Thank you all for your support! On Twitter people are kind enough to support Violent Divine thru likes and retweets and that’s so very much appreciated. It’s so important each and every time someone just mention Violent Divine. We do have a quest for world domination, you know…

Holidays ahead and besides doing the regular stuff that you’re supposed to do this time of year, we’re still a band. That means a few days will be spent in the studio playing around with a few ideas that have cum up recently. If it all makes any sense, we will know afterwards and it will probably be displayed on-line in one way or another. Load up with a few crates of beer and have a decent and Divine holiday season!

Violent Divine on Breaking Rock

In case you missed it, here’s the podcast from the latest Breaking Rock on British Forest FM. Thanx to Rockshow Paul for supporting Violent Divine!

Unbelievably happy

Just heard from long time Violent Divine supporter KWFM in Andorra that they like the video For I Am Sin. Means a lot since they have been rotating Violent Divine since the very beginning in 2006. It’s a huge rock radio station in Andorra with countless rock fans tuning in every day. Check out www.kwfm.net

Songs from Hyperactivity Disorder are currently in rotation on 365RadioNetwork, which is huge in independent radio in the US of A but also all over the world. We’re also happy to have new songs rotating on WFNGR696 Internet radio. Apparently Violent Divine deserve “The Finger”. Violent Divine is currently also played in Greece, Germany and France. In the law of Jante, I guess Sweden will be the last country of all countries in the world to support Violent Divine. That’s unfortunate but also very much oh well…

Tonight there will be Violent Divine songs on the Metal Monday show on Canadian Rock-FM.ca and also on the British Forest FM show THE BEST NEW ROCK RELEASES tonight at 23:00. I suspect Violent Divine will have two songs on Double Shot Tuesday on 365radioNetwork since the band made #8 on last week’s WNDY Radio Top 100 list.

On Friday we will celebrate the release of Hyperactivity Disorder with a Facebook release party. We do it on-line since we couldn’t possibly choose a location to do it live to reach fans from all over the planet. We will see you a bit later though at a venue near you. This way to sign up for the event. We will be streaming the new album in full, we will be on-line to chat, there will be a competition, fireworks, champagne and the works. See you on the inside!

Countdown

It’s less than a week now left to another mile stone in Violent Divine history. The release of the fourth album Hyperactivity Disorder. It’s been more than 5 years since Release the Hounds and so much happened since then. In 2011, Violent Divine was in ruins, Mike went on a quest to find new Divine band members, the band did a handfull of low-key gigs to create the foundation of the new band. A new constellation of musicians writing songs together. In the end, would it sound like Violent Divine? In what direction would the band evolve?

On December 4 we will know the answer to all those questions and more. From a Violent Divine perspective, we’re totally happy. We feel that we have evelved as a band. We have treasured what was the spirit of the original line-up and added the musicianship and the frenzy of the new pack. Song writing was never a problem really. Genuine riffs and good songs – that’s what it’s all about. Keeping that in mind will make life simple and the music to the point. From here on it’s all about reaching out. We are convinced that anyone who is into any style from rock to heavier styles of metal will like the album.

It’s an album for parties, while it’s also an album with depth. Just like you can enoy it with a couple of beers, you can also shed a few tears to its darkest tracks. It’s an album that communicates, that reaches out. We hope you will embrace it – just like we do.

Here’s your invitation to the Violent Divine Hyperactivity Disorder Facebook release party on Dec. 4. And your friends can cum too! https://goo.gl/3Vi2u8

So Far So Good

VDHD-sleeveYes! The Divine gents were nervous and we still are. Reviews are not to be taken lightly. Reviews are tough consumer advice for rock fans by rock fans in a world were competition is everything. Still it’s a very special competition since rock fans like a great variety of rock, from melodic to death. We should know, since after all, we are rock fans ourselves and our focus has always been to make albums that we, ourselves would buy. Therefore we sincerely hope that Hyperactivity Disorder appeals to as many rock fans we can possibly reach out to. After all, we wouldn’t want to miss this album.

Early reviews are great. They say:

“It’s not trendy as it’s pure and with a huge dose of Rock, so consider it timeless.” 84/100 in Metal to Infinity

“Genauso sollte Metal klingen. Ehrlich, aggressiv und voll auf die Zwölf.” 9/10 in Metal-Only

“From the first scorching riffs to rumbling bass line Hyperactivity Disorder is set on fire quickly.” 8/10 for the new album from Taste of Khaos

Thank You, for enjoying the new album!

Chartbusting

Still thrilled to be at the top 12 section of the WNDY Radio Top 100. As a bonus, that means we will be in the Double Shot Tuesday show and that’s Divine exposure. Thanx again to all the people at 365radionetwork for your support!

A bit more than 2 weeks to go until the release of Hyperactivity Disorder and the reviews so far indicates that the new breed of Violent Divine just may have accomplished the band’s best album so far. We’re happy people share our opinion on that. Yes, it’s totally in order to feel happy and content. It’s a bit un-swedish but that’s what we are. We make rock music for the entire planet and that shows among all the new followers on Twitter recently. It’s like F**k politics – let’s make love and rock & roll!
