The Grind

Back to the grind in rehearsal. It’s been a while since we actually played the songs on the new album, all at the same time. A bit rusty but a lot better than we all expected.

This week we revealed a sneak preview from the new album. A quick sample of the opening track “For I Am Sin”. We had some great feedback on that one and in a couple of weeks we’ll upload another preview. We haven’t decided yet which one it’ll be so… Next week we will reveal the track listing, the release date and the art work. But for now you’ll have to settle with a couple of snaps from the rehearsal. For more snaps, find the Divine on Instagram at www.instagram.com/violentdivine

BOOM!

Waiting is finally over. The first preview sample off the new album is out!

Remember, sharing is caring so share the f**k out of this!

The Final Countdown

ViolentDivine-2

Counting down the hours and minutes until Thursday when Violent Divine will reveal a sneak sample off the forthcoming new album. It’s a huge thing actually. We haven’t released an album in 5 years and now it’s time to Restart the Divine. So much to look forward to but also lots of nervousness. If you liked Violent Divine 5 years ago, will you like the new songs? We’ve hade loads of great reviews previously, will the press embrace this album just as much. But, besides that, we’re totally happy with the album. This is Violent Divine of 2015 and this week, we can finally share a glimpse of that with you guys.

If you need to do some homework, you can find Violent Divine on Spotify and Itunes.

Life after Death

ViolentDivine-1

Violent Divine reveals the truth. There is definately life after the mixing process is done. We could go on mixing forever, poking through minor details, but the point is – the goddamn songs and the performance. Does the album deliver? Do we rock? The answer is definately yes, at least from our point of view. The real and only true answer to that question, we leave up to you. Later this year we look forward to your feedback.

So what is post-mixing-life like. Well it’s kind of technical. ISRC, UPC, NCB and the likes, followed by spicing up the Violent Divine web-site and the lots of our Divine presence on social media. And, of course, rehearsals will start again so we can deliver Violent Divine to a venue near you. All fun and games!

New band pics

ViolentDivine-3

Ok, here we go! Brand new shots of Violent Divine, as well as individual shots of each band member. We think they turned out quite well, at least a few out of nearly 500 pictures. We might post some photo bloopers another day because some are just hilarious, but for now – let’s keep it serious. We’re a band, dammit!

Photomanic panic

We had a blast taking band photos last week. It’s not so easy as it looks though. Imagine 4 hyperactive persons trying to look just a tiny bit like an angry or/and serious metal band in the same picture. It’s almost an impossible task. Out of nearly 500 shots, surprisingly lots of them turned out great. We had a tremendous luck with the weather and sunligt this late afternoon. Perfect conditions, a great photographer and a great camera, thanx to baby bro Nikky. These shots will definately make it to the album sleeve as well as press photos. Of course we are dying to show you the result but Marjo at Metal Revelations says it will have to wait until later. Marjo knows best!

Anyway, even though the disorderly gentlemen of the Divine were quite focused on the task, S.J arrived on his KTM-bike, and Simon just had to have a go, even though he doesn’t have a license. Such a bad boy, Simon Divine…

DIY

_20150908_233339

To be quite honest, I suck at Adobe Indesign. Whatever happened to Pagemaker and Quark Express? But this is what it’s like in the marvellous world of doing it your motherfucking self. Not that I’m complaining. I like total control and all that shit. Not necessarily in a sexual sense. And I don’t mind sharing the control with the guys in the band, or the occasional great advisor. I’m not stupid like that.

Anyway, the artwork for the sleeve is like 99 % ready and blah blah color profiles, export settings and bloody dots/inches. I guess I should get some sleep, says Late Night Mike.
