Within Dividia

Within Dividia
(Relapse Records - 2004)

The quintet from Toronto (Canada) was founded in 1999 and released in May 1999 their first demo. Soon they signed to a small independent label in Canada which released their debut Transfer, Trachea Reverberations From Point: False Omniscient. That EP was called one of the '10 essential mathcore albums' by U.K. Metal Hammer. Now they present their first full-length album which is based on The Dividia Estate. The Canadians offer a large musical span. There are hardcore parts, death metal elements, technical, almost progressive parts and noisy guitars next to some soundscapes. The End presents very complex and extreme music. No easy listening! Within Dividia needs several spins, it's a grower. Even if there are catchy - not the right word, but comes close - sequences. The vocals of Aaron Wolff are aggressive and sometimes based on growls and grunts. Very complex. A good track to check out The End is The Scent Of Elegance which has all the elements, an unusual combination. Indescribable! The song Organelle (In She We Lust) even has jazzy / funky parts! A band which don't follow any trend. They don't accept limitations, they are crossing boarders. Perhaps this is the next trend... A new genre... The only band I can think of who's kinda doing the same in Candiria... It's very interesting and very demanding. Something you have to give full attention to. I'm not sure, if I'll really get into it, but at the same time I can't stop listening... Strange... And it drag's you in to the world of The End...
