Divinity Recruits Second Guitarist Gord Olson

Divinity just announces the addition of 2nd guitarist Gord Olson to the band line-up. Olson is a dedicated and talented 7-string shredder who is endorsed by Schecter Guitars and is also currently active in numerous projects such as Ye Goat-Herd Gods and Demisery.

Vocalist Sean Jenkins comments: “The band had originally asked Gord to join the band about four years ago, but timing and commitment didn’t work out. Recently, about 2 months ago, Gord was hanging out at a jam session and by the end of it we all sort of realized that the opportunity for Gord to learn some songs and start jamming was now possible. Gord really took bull by the horns and has learned a 10-song live set in a matter of just weeks… and he’s nailing it; really adding another huge layer of thickness and some killer leads too! We couldn’t be more stoked to have dual guitarists again!”

Divinity will embark on a dual album release tour with Vancouver, BC’s Expain. The tour will be in promotion of Divinity’s latest album “The Immortalist,” along with Expain’s forthcoming EP “Pinching Nerves.”

Divinity Streaming Full New Album “The Immortalist”

Calgary, AB progressive death metal band Divinity will unleash new album “The Immortalist” on May 26th. The album is a culmination of 5 years of hard work and dedication to Divinity’s craft and can be heard in full below.

“The Immortalist” features 12 tracks that include previous EP releases “The Immortalist, Pt. 1 – Awestruck” and “The Immortalist, Pt. 2 –Momentum” with 3rd EP “The Immortalist Pt. 3 – Conqueror” now completed to finish off the trilogy series as one huge full-length album.

All the tracks on the album are re-mixed and re-mastered by the talented Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Grid Productions) to make the songs more cohesive and work as a full-length experience. This album also features Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid of Soilwork on vocals for the song “D.M.T.”

The band comments: “We’re very proud of our new album! Our dedication to song writing, recording and producing these 12 songs over the past 5 years has been a crazy musical journey and a huge learning experience that we will never forget.

“Our lyrical content and artwork is based on an original science-fiction concept story about a character who wakes up in a random field within an intricate crop circle with no memory of who he is or how he got there. The character is then thrown into a crazy adventure and eventually learns who he is and how to become immortal. There’s so much more to the story but we don’t want to give it all way just yet.”
