On July 28th 2017, progressive metal band Divinity Compromised released their sophomore album Terminal via Qumran Records/No Dust Records. The band features Lothar Keller of the Skull and features a guest appearance by Kayla Dixon of Witch Mountain.
Divinity Compromised was formed in 2009, and has risen to become one of the Chicago area’s premier metal bands. Formed by veterans of several notable Chicago groups, the band has carefully honed its sound and has evolved into a unique sonic experience which features a strong focus on melody and dynamics while retaining the signature heaviness mixed with symphonic elements for which the band has become known.
Following the release of their 2013 debut A World Torn, the band successfully brought the album’s vision to live audiences both in the Chicago area supporting multiple national touring acts and throughout the US including the band’s commanding performance of the entire album at the prestigious ProgPower XIV festival in 2013.
Divinity Compromised’s sophomore release Terminal is the culmination of the band’s journey to this point. The release finds the band expanding their horizons in all directions, with topics both intensely personal and socially relevant, and songs featuring some of the heaviest and most somber moods the band has recorded yet.
The band now releases their new lyric video for their track ‘The Fall of Æstoria’, which you can check out here:
