The creative force behind the genre-defying, legendary metal titans Fear Factory, guitarist Dino Cazares, has returned with a mind-blowing, scathing new offering that shatters the boundaries of conventionality with unrelenting intensity, precision and speed. This new offering from Cazares’ extreme metal juggernaut DIVINE HERESY also features one of the genre’s most acclaimed drummers, Tim Yeung (ex-Nile, Vital Remains), bassist Joe Payne (ex-Nile) and newcomer vocalist Travis Neal (ex-The Bereaved, Pushed).
This pummeling new offering, Bringer of Plagues, which is set for a July 28th North American release, redefines the meaning of aggression and takes extreme to an all new level. Neal has undoubtedly proven that he is the perfect fit for the role as he delivers a debut performance for the ages.
The album’s scathing opening cut, “Face Breaker,” is now available on the band’s newly revamped MySpace page, so head over now to [http://www.myspace.com/divineheresyband](http://www.myspace.com/divineheresyband) to stream the song and view the brutal new artwork and track listing.
Cazares further comments: “The songwriting process for this album was a great experience and the ideas were constantly flowing. Collaborating with Tim Yeung, Joe Payne and Neal, all together hashing out ideas in the practice space was very therapeutic and enjoyable. We all had a collective desire to take our performances to the next level with this release to undoubtedly prove that we are one of the most devastating bands in the scene today. This is most evident on the opening cut ‘Face Breaker,’ which we can’t wait for all of you to hear. Check it out and drop us a message to let us know what you think of it. We will see you all soon.”
DIVINE HERESY teamed up once again with acclaimed producing team Dirty Icon (Logan Mader and Lucas Banker) who has recently produced Cavalera Conspiracy, Gojira and Five Finger Death Punch. This album undeniably upped the ante in brutality, precision and technicality as the group are more focused and tighter than ever before. Bringer of Plagues features the legendary machine gun riffs that’ll take your breath away, combined with some jaw-dropping double-bass drum insanity. After a year and a half of touring with the likes of All That Remains, Static-X, Arch Enemy, Shadows Fall and Chimaira, DIVINE HERESY have proven that they are a stellar live act and are a force to be reckoned with.
