Check out the latest video, “Happy Ever Afterlife” from Swedish Rockers Violent Divine. Violent Divine’s new album, “In Harm’s Way” is available now.
If you didn’t catch Violent Divine’s awesome debut disc you missed one of the better releases of 2006. I am happy to say “In Harm’s Way” carries on where the debut record left off. Much like the first disc, this CD has a bunch of songs that could be easily be radio singles.
If you aren’t completely hooked after hearing “Blackheart”, “Love is Divine”, “Happy Ever Afterlife” or “Vampire Empire” (my current favorites), there are plenty of other cool tunes on this disc to get you rocking. Violent Divine have mastered their sound which blends the big hooks of 80’s metal, and the modern guitar tones of today’s hard rock acts. With a sound this cool, Violent Divine are easily one of the best new bands on the scene today. With a little luck, this disc will bring Violent Divine a great deal of success.
If you like your rock hard and heavy, check out “In Harm’s Way”. If you are a fan of bands like Hard Core Superstar, and Skid Row, you have to check these guys out. I am enjoying this CD, and I think you will too.
