Hexes is the second single from The Divergent’s upcoming album. It was composed at the end of 2022 by Harri Moilanen and lyrics and vocal compositions soon after that by Markus Pulkkinen and Joonas Kataja.
The ongoing war in Europe has raised a lot of emotions. In ’Hexes’ we channeled all the primitive anger and willingness to fight against injustice. We hope that it will be felt and heard by anyone who is defending their homeland and families, so they could be empowered by our powerful song.
The song ’Tyrant’ is the first single of our upcoming album, it was composed about year ago by Harri Moilanen and lyrics and vocal compositions soon after that by Markus Pulkkinen and Joonas Kataja. Song takes a mythological standpoint to tell a story about fight against tyrants and opressors, a theme we will revolve around in our album, looking at the topic through different perspectives.
We are currently working on our second EP/Album. There are handful of songs already written and Joonas is currently demoing vocal and lyric ideas. We’re hoping to start recording asap and release it during this year.
Our vocalist Roni has decided to part his ways with us. He was a vital part of our first EP and a good bandmate. Gladly our search for a new vocalist didn’t take excessive amounts of time and joining our band will be Joonas Kataja. His growls and clean vocals will be significantly needed on the upcoming releases.
We also went through a drummer change. Replacing Eetu will be Jani-Petteri Polo. He has been finessing songs for several months now and it’s all coming together nicely.
The Divergent has made a debut release 4.5.2019, which includes 5-song EP and a music video from the song Neuroplasticity. The songs are progressive, djentish, groovy, melodic and punchy metal. Lyrics stem from the absurdity of the modern era – an indolence of humankind to react to chaos it has brought upon itself and on the environment – and the personal struggle and conflict of what being part of it creates.
We sincerely hope that you enjoy our music! If you do, come and join us with the journey! Every like, share and follow will be greatly appreciated, see you on the road!
