The Fallen Divine – The Binding Cycle (Free Streaming!)
The Fallen Divine are a Norwegian Progressive Metal act, who released their first full-length, called The Binding Cycle about two weeks ago. Now one can stream the entire thing exclusively on Metalunderground.com so that’s where I will be linking you to after the jump.
The Binding Cycle is not your average Progressive Metal album à la Dream Theatre or the like, no, it’s heavier, drenched in Blackened Death Metal influences and melodies. The album is very dynamic, with a lot of alternation between heavy and quite moments. With the album bordering on the 50 minutes, it’s not the longest Progressive Metal album, but with 8 songs, this is quite a reasonable length.
Although I don’t really get the idea of exclusive free streaming, it might give others something hard, but yeah. I listened to the album for a bit and I can’t really point out a favourite song. Everything is high quality, modern, Blackened Progressive Metal. However if you’re in a hurry, I recommend you take a listen to Fires Lights the Night (Self Ignition), Patterns Through Eternity and Shades of Oppression.
