What would be the best way to describe Divine Ecstasy? It's filthy '84 Bathory worship with some naughty lyrical content from Detroit. Plus it's incredibly well written and catchy as hell. So it's just perfect black metal then.
Favorite track: Taste the Demon Seed.
IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present DIVINE ECSTASY's striking debut mini-album, Strange Passions, on CD and 12" vinyl formats.
Hailing from the darkest and dingiest recesses of Detroit's metal underground, DIVINE ECSTASY are a sonic embodiment of all that post-apocalyptic city's grit and grime, simply taken to a black metal extreme. This filthy foursome are unapologeticaly raw and regressionist, hailing the most ancient, trend-free days of early BLACK fucking METAL. Such gods as pre-Viking Bathory, Mayhem, Root, Bulldozer, and Master's Hammer are indeed hailed - as well as later torch-carriers like early Ulver, Dodheimsgard, Judas Iscariot, and Hades (Norway) - and then desecrated in a most salacious manner, so sick and sickening is the heart that beats black blood through DIVINE ECSTASY. Indeed, Strange Passions is aptly titled, for perversion and Bacchanalia guide these six mini-anthems as surely as devil worship and the invoking of demons - and it's all done with a Loki-like sense of wrongness. Truly, these Strange Passions are so wrong, they're right...right inside the depths of DIVINE ECSTASY!

"Krigsdøger" is one of the best black metal releases I had the pleasure to listen to over the last months. It spreads the pioneer spirit from the 90s, it is rough and melodic at the same time and even the sharp sound reminds me at some Grieghallen classics. Quite unique and full of black metal hits! Listen for example to "En pålagt byll" and decide for yourself. H.L.
