A World Torn

Rated 4/5 (80%) (4 Votes)

The debut release from Divinity Compromised is a cracking slab of US-style progressive power metal. The band tick all the necessary boxes for this style with excellent, professional musicianship. Not a note is missed throughout the album's fifty-plus minute run time; singer Lothar Keller carries each of the tracks well with a flawless vocal performance that oozes power. As for the music itself, anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the style should know what to expect; chunky riffing, molten lead guitars, a first-rate rhythm section and some well done keys and symphonic elements.

Whilst the chances are you'll have heard this done before, Divinity Compromised showcase their genre exactly how it should sound. Purely by the book, but nevertheless a completely enjoyable experience, A World Torn comes recommended to those who enjoy this particular style and I'm sure it will provide some solid listening. "Children Of A Dead God" and the killer "Guardians Of Ki" are the tracks to look out for and check out if you're interested.
