Divided are a band from Belarus that plays a very technical form of death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "To Have Nothing" which was released by Satanath Records.
Folk instruments and violins start off the album giving the recording an occult feeling along with the sounds of human torture in the background before going into more of a heavier direction while also keeping around the violins briefly and adding in death metal growls that are also very deep and the faster sections of the music use a great amount of blast beats.
High pitched screams can be heard in some parts of the songs and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also add in a very old school style of death metal and the music also mixes in a great amount of atmospheric sounds along with experimental sounds and synths being utilized at times while the guitar riffs also get very technical at times and the music is also perfectly balanced between both old school and modern death metal.
Divided plays a style of death metal that has its roots in the 90's but also adds in more technical and atmospheric elements to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Thelema, Egyptian and Left Hand Path themes.
In my opinion Divided are a very great sounding technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Him To Baphomet" "Demoniac Facility" "Hymn To Nu" and "Shall be The Wholes Of The Law". 8 out of 10.
