DIVINER is a heavy/power metal band from Greece founded by long-time friends and music partners Yiannis Papanikolaou (vocals) and Thimios Krikos (guitar) in the summer of 2011. The two of them also formed the well known Greek heavy/power metallers InnerWish back in 1995 playing in their debut album “Waiting for the Dawn” (1998) but after this release they had a long break of different musical quests.

Their new vision was to proudly express themselves by creating and playing something powerful, intense, deep, heavy, dark, melodic and inspired that at the same time would sound up to date. All this without losing the elements that reflect the essence of pure and timeless magic of metal music.

They were joined in the band by George Maroulees (guitar), Herc Booze (bass) and Fragiskos Samoilis (drums) and a deal was inked with the Swedish label Ulterium Records.
The debut album “Fallen Empires” was released in November 2015 and received very good reviews and feedback from around the world. After the release of the album the band played many shows and big festivals in Greece and also in Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland, and became known for being a great and energetic live band gaining a strong following.

Thimios Krikos left the band in 2017 due to a heavy and conflicting schedule and was replaced by Kostas Fitos.

Diviner entered Devasoundz Studios in Athens with producer Fotis Benardo in summer 2018 to record their second album “Realms of Time”. This time they decided to expand their music horizons, exploring more territories, adding new elements in terms of lyrics, melodies, riffs and atmosphere, making their songwriting more interesting and better. The band worked really hard on coming up with the best compositions, arrangements and production as possible for the ten songs they set out to record.

The final result show improvements on every level since the band’s debut album and “Realms of Time” won’t leave fans of heavy and power metal disappointed. The album is heavy, melodic and epic and it’s full of energy, power and emotion. Follow Diviner into the Realms of Time!

CLOCKWORK – Debut single clip available….

Clockwork make their debut with the videoclip for new single Closer, released via Heavy Load – Freemood (Tanzan Music group). The song is part of the ambitious project created by Lorenzo Masiero, with the aim of blending music and literature, creating a true metal opera characterized by a wide and rich musical world.

Clockwork is an eight piece band that features musicians Gianluca Capelli (drums) and Daniele Mandelli (guitar) from Dark Horizon,  Luigi Riccio (bass), Lorenzo Masiero himself (keyboards) and singers Paolo TaurinoFabio BrunettiRossella Moscatello and Francesca Trevisan, whose voices give life to the characters of the book written by Masiero (‘Clockwork’ -Albatros Publishing Group) that inspired the metal opera’s story.

 

The original novel’s plot narrate the life of a musician who sell his soul to the demon Phedus(Francesca Trevisan) in order to obtain the perfect melody. The demon will mislead the man fragmenting his soul in different entities that represent his emotions, Joy (Rossella Moscatello), Rage(Paolo Taurino) and Solitude (Fabio Brunetti).

 

The videoclip, directed by Niccolò Savinelli, shows the main character while is returning to the places of his youth. The young man in the video is a memory by the protagonist that became old and deprived of emotions.

‘Closer’ represents the melancholic sensation of arriving to the end of life without having reached your aim and with no possibilities to fix the mistakes committed.

 

The adventure of Clockwork has begun and will be enhanced by a full band theatrical live show.

The first single will be part of the Underground Symphony 25th year anniversary  compilation by the italian record label, to be released by the end of 2019.
