Divinity - Allegory

Nuclear Blast, 2008, CD

I can't get on with this.

One berzerk riff after another. Then a beatdown. Then some mosh riffs. Then another bezerk riff. One guy screams. Another guy screams. Then some guy sings a few words.

It's all blindingly impressive technically but each element just sounds so generic without it fitting into any kind of memorable songs or hooks.

Occasionally there are. Maybe 2 out of the 10 songs I remember and seem like they are well worked out.

Sometimes with this kind of band if you listen to it a lot, it doesn't matter about songs because you learn all the pieces and then you get into all of it, like every riff.

There is such a tendency now to abandon song structures to appear more technically impressive or whatever but I think with this it could rule more if they just laid some songs down that build up and break down and lead to emphatic heights and memorable pieces.
