DIVINER is a heavy metal band from Greece founded by long-time friends and music partners Yiannis Papanikolaou (vocals) and Thimios Krikos (guitar) in the summer of 2011.
Their vision was to proudly express themselves by creating and playing something powerful, intense, deep, heavy, dark and inspired that at the same time would sound up to date. All this without losing the elements that reflect the essence of pure and timeless magic of metal music.
With this in mind they started writing songs and in a short period of time some of their friends and well known musicians of the local metal scene George Maroulees (guitar), Herc Booze (bass) and Fragiskos Samoilis (drums) joined them and the band took its final form.
'Fallen Empires' is DIVINER's first attempt to reach out to the metal world and will be released by Ulterium Records on the 20th of November 2015.
Their sound influences cover a very wide range of metal paths having classic heavy origins and melodies, blended with modern crushing riffs, groovy rhythm sections, powerful vocals and an overall up to date approach.
The recordings took place at Devasoundz Studios in Athens, with Thimios Krikos and Fotis Benardo (SIXFORNINE, ex- SEPTIC FLESH) handling them. Thimios Krikos was also responsible for the mixing of the album, while Peter In de Betou (Arch Enemy, Opeth, Amon Amarth) of Tailor Maid fame handled the mastering. The cover artwork and sleeve design were made by the talented artist Alan Fall of Digital Grief.
