Diverje - Burn Away
Electro, Industrial Diverje is a band that has been around for quite some time now and is know for their gritty industrial/electro music amongst the underground, mainly in the USA.

Now they are back again with the album 'Burn Away', a 15 track release which offers everything from distorted guitars to heavy beats and screaming lead synthesizers.

The first track out is the one called "Suffer This World" which is by far the best one on this album along with the tracks "Superficial Slut" and "Burn Away". The overall production of this album is something between clean and dirty, it's not the best one but it's far from bad. I really like the sound of it and in some way it reminds me a bit of earlier electro released around 2000's.

This is really something that adds that extra underground bit to the band and make it feel like when you bought your first album as a kid. A lot of bands these days focus a lot on getting their albums that unnecessary power and loudness. I rather have an album that packs a good punch and has a nice and warm sound to it than something that is just loud and screaming and hurts your ears, and Divjere offers that warmer sound which I like.

This is a solid release that sticks to a known recipe that has worked for quite some time and while it might not surprise you with anything you have heard before it's still damn good and doesn't need to prove anything. It is a solid mix of electro and a tiny bit of metal mixed into it.

I know a lot of people in this scene don't like guitars but as an old metal head I don't have a problem with it and I think it adds another depth to the music and make it sound more powerful. This doesn't work for all bands of course but there are a handful that to this good and Diverje are one of them.
