Think we told you lots already about the great tme we had supporting Lillasyster at Hell Yeah Rock Club/Palatset in Linköping, Sweden on April 1 2016. We also got lots of great shots from local photographer Fredric Sommer. It’s really great to see shots like that from a professional who actually know his trade and we can’t thank him enough. The shots are truly Divine. Watch the entire set on Facebook!

We also got some fan videos from the show and you can get a glimpse of Violent Divine on stage somewhere on the other side of the crowd. Enjoy the racket!

Wam Bam Thank You Mam

701955_10153570543198860_3898094745777535356_oThank you all for coming out to Kulturkollektivet in Norrköping last night. Nice to see you all. We had a blast, as always on stage! Doing gigs on Wednesdays in Sweden is all like… well we don’t expect it to be huge events but we have now done two Wednesday shows and all we have to say is that they both turned out great. Lots more rockers came out to see Violent Divine than we could ever hope for. Last night we even spotted people singing along with every godforsaken song we played – and we only played songs off Hyperactivity Disorder. So totally worth it!

Now we look forward to doing more shows and to meet more of you fans out there. It’s rock n roll and it’s supposed to be live – as it happens!

Another D-Day – as in Divine

It’s finally happening. Violent Divine is back where we belong – on stage! Tonight’s scene of the crime is the club Headbanger’s Ballroom, located at Göta Källare in Stockholm. Violent Divine share the stage with Fib and Faceshift. At the show there will also be opportunities to get your hands on the CD Hyperactivity Disorder.

Tonight’s set list as follows…

FOR I AM SIN
INCUBUS
RESTART MY HEART
TEMPLE OF LOVE

The Crash Norrköping

A magic return to The Crash – the same venue for the release party of Release The Hounds back in 2010. This time with brothers in arms Last Temptation and Sarea. The Divine set list contained Love Revolution, Temple Of Love, Rush You, Let’s Go, Rain, Sweet Blood, Walking On Thin Ice, Desolation Boulevard, Drown, I Am and Blackheart.

Huge thanks to all fans and friends for love and support, Last Temptation and Sarea for friendship and F**k & Roll entertainment, The Crash and Bacchus Bakficka. And of course, here’s a video to prove we did it with a brand new song, Temple of Love.

Rain – Part 3

Composing and trying out new songs for a new album contains one, sometimes overlooked, ingredience. What do your fans think about your new material and the main question is of course: is this a Violent Divine song. Scary as it is, performing new songs live and not comfortably rely on “what you know will work for the crowd” you really need to give new songs a few breaths of air on stage before deciding what songs will appear on the next album.

This is a recording of “Rain” from Bryggeriet in Motala, Sweden along with “Sweet Blood” off the Release The Hounds album. As a bonus you will also get a taste of a remake of one of the songs that never made it to the In Harm’s Way album “Walking On Thin Ice” along with a massive version of “Let Them Burn” from that very same album.

Yes, the sound quality is total crap but hey – it’s fucking exclusive!

Storåfestivalen 2012

D-day for the Divine gentlemen to show off if endless hours in rehearsal did result in a true rock band. On location at the annual Storåfestivalen in the nearby town of Söderköping, freezing as fuck and not too crowded due to the damn weather, the band proved to measure up – and beyond. And here’s the video to prove it! Yeah, shitty camera but wtf… it’s still for real!

Setlist:
One By One
Rush You
Let’s Go
Sweet Blood
Desolation Boulevard
Blackheart

And yeah, the beverage of choice for Mike Divine on stage is… coffee!
And yeah, the hair style of choice for Mike Divine is dreads!

This is the truth! This is rock and fucking roll!
