This four-piece outfit from Waterloo, NY, is taking thinking-man's metal to another level. Thick, muted guitars, a tinge of electronica, and uncanny technical prowess make for a sound that is nothing less than atmospheric. Divinex has been repeatedly praised for its live performances filled with massive swells of ethereal distortion and a distinctive display of sonic textures. The band is currently working on translating its massive stage presence into a proper full-length studio album.
Divinex performs Saturday, June 1, 6:30 p.m. at The Club at Water Street, 204 N. Water St. $10-$15. waterstreetmusic.com.
