After 13 years of silence, Texas old-school death metal act DIVINE EVE has returned. The band entered Kearlight Recording Studios in October with engineer Scott Cooksey to begin recording a new EP. The effort will consist of two new songs and two previously unrecorded (by DIVINE EVE) tracks that originally appeared on the CRIMSON RELIC "Purgatory's Reign" album. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Whispers of Fire", "Ravages of Heathen Men" and "Vindication".

Bassist Tyson Lueck is no longer involved with the group but has reportedly given his blessings to the rest of the band to continue without him. Xan Hammack is handling the bass duties in the studio and a suitable substitute for live performances will be announced soon.

Could be interesting, or not, depending on the role Lueck played in writing the music.

Way too little, much too late. That ship has sailed.

Recently reformed Texas death metal veterans DIVINE EVE have issued the following update:

"As writhing flames whisper to the darkness, winds of chaos fade into the abyss... Divine Eve is very eager to declare the 4 song EP is in it's final stages of completion. The title, Vengeful And Obstinate, is a fitting banner to raise proudly above our first recordings in over 14 years. Divine Eve continues to be encouraged and inspired by the extremely positive support from the underground extreme metal music scene! We strongly HAIL those loyal followers of Divine Eve's long over due reformation and legacy. More news to come about soon to be available release formats, as well as song samples.

Ride the wings of Armageddon!"

Vengeful And Obstinate will be available via Ibex Moon Records later this year.

Divine Eve is:

Michael Sleavin - Rhythm Guitar & Vocals
Xan Hammack - Lead Guitar & Vocals
Matt Killen - Drums & Backing Vocals

DIVINE EVE have graced us with their brand of doomy death metal in a European style since the early days of 1993 when "As the Angels Weep" was released.

In 2010, they've returned, with a new EP named "Vengeful and Obstinate," and we were lucky to catch guitarist/vocalist Michael A. Sleavin for an interview.

He talks about the past, the twists and turns of DIVINE EVE's career, re-releases and the upcoming full length album.

Interview with Michael A. Sleavin of Divine Eve


What a GREAT interview.  Great questions and even better answers.  Sleavin's clarity is palpable.  This puts Divine Eve in a whole new perspective.  This interview made "Vengeful and Obstinate" more impressive than I had originally thought.  This is an outstanding EP that deserves highest recommendations.  If the full length is as good as the EP, watch the fuck out!

Sometimes I get fatalistic about metal and also about how artists, in general, create great art.  Sometimes I forget and get lost in this idea that art happens by accident, or magic, or that there is "something in the air."  Norwegian Black Metal was sort of a "right time, right place" situation, for instance.  But reading about Divine Eve's process and also Sleavin's matter of fact look at metal, it makes me snap back into reality, and I realize once again that art, music, and metal, is a CRAFT that can benefit as much from hard work and an even keel approach as it can from thunderbolts of inspiration and zeitgeist.
