Forged in 2007, HIDEOUS DIVINITY – currently featuring within its ranks current and former members of Hour Of Penance and Aborted – quickly established itself as one of the strongest rising European death metal acts thanks to their signature brand of technical yet gloomy classic styled death metal. Often compared to the likes of Nile, Hate Eternal, and Immolation, the band’s two Unique Leader releases – 2012’s Obeisance Rising and 2014’s Cobra Verde – led to a successful European tour with Cannibal Corpse and Krisiun in the Spring 2016 as well as appearances at some of the most esteemed European extreme metal fests during the last few years. The band will be playing several festivals this Summer including Colony Open Air in Italy July 23rd and Stonehenge Festival in the Netherlands on July 29th. Additional performance to be announced in the coming weeks.
“…brutal and massive…” – Metal Temple
“Adveniens tackles an abundance of mayhem and fury, but balances it out with just enough melody to keep things interesting and varied. There’s intricate musicianship to stimulate the mind, as well as downright violent focus to appease the body. Hard to beat that combination, particularly with that gorgeous artwork to round things out.” – Dead Rhetoric
“With Adveniens, HIDEOUS DIVINITY have made a huge mark in their career… an atomic blast that never seems to stop expanding ever-outward from moment one, never losing momentum, and leaving nothing but ash, dust, and mutation in its aftermath.” – No Clean Singing
“…bat-shit crazy in its unrelentingness… so well-crafted that its forty-eight-minute runtime flies by, bookended by a seemingly melodeth-inspired tune called ‘Embodiment Of Chaos’ (a riff-of-the-week contender). I counted about a thousand great riffs and a couple of terrific guitar solos. Finally, each of the songs was well constructed and catchy enough to be memorable after two listens.” – Toilet Ov Hell
“Insert obvious adjectives here. ‘Crushing,’ ‘Abominable,’ ‘Explosive,’ yadda, yadda, yadda. Just listen to the damn thing. It’s really heavy and well-performed.” – Metal Trenches
“Impressive, satisfying, and eminently enjoyable; Adveniens takes HIDEOUS DIVINITY up to an entirely new level of quality… an essential listen.” — Wonderbox Metal
“…the album HIDEOUS DIVINITY have always threatened to make and will no doubt solidify their place in death metals big league. These boys are here to stay.” – Brutalism
