Realms of Time

Rated 4.2/5 (84%) (5 Votes)

Greece's Diviner hit me hard with their 2015 debut, Fallen Empire, and their follow up Realms of Time hits a lot harder. We get more classic-meets-modern Metal with killer rhythms, piercing, pummeling riffs, and the first-rate singing of Yiannis Papanikolaou, who may as well be the second coming of Dio himself even if his voice isn't exactly the same. That's actually a pretty good way to describe this band: clearly influenced by classics like Priest and Dio but putting their own modern spin on it and hitting it out of the park while doing so. I'd pick highlights from this album but, fuck, you can just go read the track list for the same effect.

Diviner haven't really gotten much recognition in the underground, and for a band this good at doing what Metal does best, that's absolutely criminal. Track this one down so we can change that.
