Calgary, AB progressive death metal band Divinity have posted more lyric videos in support of their new album “The Immortalist” that was unleashed on May 26th.
The band stated this about the songs:
“PsyWar: This was a song that had a concept before the music was written. We knew we needed to create a groovy song with a real sinister message. Once the main riff was written, the rest wrote itself. I am very proud of the final song as it relays the message that we all live in a world of psychological warfare where the elite rulers have fabricated a narrative that we have come to accept as normal. Through media and mainstream news, they have convinced us of all kinds of false beliefs, and they have found a way to get their wars and their ways of normalizing violence and all the terrible things that would normally be completely unacceptable. We have been fully and completely brainwashed to accept atrocities and lies, as truth. Now that we are so conditioned to accept this as normal, we won’t question authority, meaning they can do whatever it is they want, without a backlash from the public.
Distorted Mesh: This song started as a riff of Sean’s, which I took and spiced up and sped up. The song concept was loosely inspired by the movie “Insidious”, where the demon lives in the underworld and emerges only to find his victims, and take them into the other world to torture. Our current world is a very scary place these days, where lies and distortions of the truth are the new norm. We are all connected to each other in this madness, but the things that connect us are distorted and manipulated by evil entities who have succeeded in making us thoughtless slaves. There is no way out of this nightmare that is our modern world’s reality.”
“The Immortalist” is a culmination of 5 years of hard work and dedication to DIVINITY‘s craft. The album features 12 tracks that include their two previous EP releases “The Immortalist, Pt. 1 – Awestruck” and “The Immortalist, Pt. 2 –Momentum” with their 3rd EP “The Immortalist Pt. 3 – Conqueror” now completed to finish off the trilogy series as one huge full length album. All the tracks on the album are re-mixed and re-mastered by the talented Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Grid Productions) to make the songs more cohesive and work as a full-length experience. This album also features Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid of Soilwork on vocals for the song ‘D.M.T.’.
Album order available on Divinity.ca, iTunes or Amazon plus an exclusive digipak CD available on their website for those who like to support the band directly. The digipak CD contains a 24-page booklet that showcases this entire concept giving fans way a full physical experience to the story, songs, lyrics, and visual aspect of the new album.

Divinity, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, started in 1997 and began playing live shows in 1999. In 2001, the band released its first EP album called “Intensify” which received a lot of local (Canadian) praise after sending in a couple songs to BWBK’s ‘Knuckletrack’ CD sampler. A music video was released for the song “World of Pain” in 2003 and the band played local shows building its show experience.
Fast forward to 2007, Divinity independently releases their first full-length album called “Allegory” and is picked up by Nuclear Blast Records just 3 months after the independent release. Obviously, this was a major turning point for the band!
In 2008, Divinity took on its first major tour by joining the Summer Slaughter Canada tour. This gave them the opportunity to connect to high-calibre booking agents and other acts such as Dying Fetus, Whitechapel, and Necrophagist.
In 2009, Divinity spent it’s time creating their 2nd full-length album, called “The Singularity” which was released under Candlelight Records with a very positive response from numerous reviewers and listeners.
Since the release of The Singularity, Divinity has toured Canada numerous times over and has received massive support and praise from around the world.
The band is currently releasing a trilogy EP concept album now turned into a full-length LP, called ”The Immortalist”available May 26th, 2017 at all digital music stores and as a special limited run CD Digipak.
