"Eden in Ashes" (Screaming Ferret; 2005)

Reviewed by Snidermann

As I sit here listening to Divinity Destroyed's "Eden in Ashes," I am hard put to decipher all the different kinds of music represented here. This CD goes from Indian pan music to power rock to hard rock to heavy metal and on to a few I cannot name (and prefer not to try). This mixture adds a bit of mystery to the music and that is what "Eden In Ashes" is: highly sophisticated one second, simple hard rock the next, epic power metal after that followed by thundering heavy metal (complete with growling vocals).

"Eden in Ashes" has it all. I truly have never heard anything like this. At this very moment I am listening to an acoustic guitar solo which has now folded into growling vocals with power metal guitar. I am totally amazed at the quality and quantity of music available on this CD!

This is the fourth time I've spun this CD and I cannot fucking believe the music that I am experiencing! Music like this is the reason I love this job so much! Man, I have to take a fucking breath, this CD is that good -- by far the best thing I've heard in over a year. Simply outstanding throughout! 

Divinity Destroyed: Mark Ward - vocals, guitar; Dan Leonard - drums; Tom Ward - guitar, vocals; Jonny Heerema - keyboards; Jim Cowen - bass

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
