"FEED ON YOUR MISERY"
NIGHTMARE RECORDS / FIREBALL RECORDS
DIVIDED MULTITUDE is a Norwegian Progressive Metal band that has been around
since 1995. These guys play a very well structured multi layered style of Progressive
Metal. They do add in some touches of Prog Rock from the '70's, but the majority of the
music is on the heavier side that leans towards Metal. The music takes you down many
different paths, some that flow smoothly into others and some that kind of jump around.
There is a strong fantasy or space like vibe to their sound. I liked the way the music pulls
you in and grabs a hold and doesn't let go until the song ends. These are some very
mystical and fantastic journeys and each song feels fresh and different from the previous.
There is solid middle ground sound with the band with each instrument sharing equal parts
with each other. No musician outshines another by dominating with their instruments. I
liked the parts that were a bit more grooved out and had more of a chugging sound to them.
These guys are one of the most Progressive sounding Metal acts out there. The vocals are a
combination of gritty mid ranged Metal vocals with some more melodic higher pitched
ones. If you were to take bands like RHAPSODY, CIRCUS MAXIMUS, SPHERIC
UNIVERSE EXPERIENCE, DREAM THEATER & NEVERMORE and mix them all
together the end result would be DIVIDED MULTITUDE. If your a fan of most of the
bands on NIGHTMARE RECORDS & SENSORY RECORDS then your gonna love
these guys! I know I did!
