Heavy/Power metal band DIVINER have signed a multi-album deal with ROAR! Rock of Angels Records.
DIVINER is a Greek heavy metal band that was formed in 2011, by long-time friends and music partners Yiannis Papanikolaou (vocals) and Thimios Krikos (guitars). They were also the founders of the mighty INNERWISH, participating together only in their first album “Waiting for the dawn” (1998). After a long time of different musical quests, they decided to join forces in a new band, wanting to create something powerful, heavy, melodic and dark, with fresh sound.
DIVINER released their debut album “Fallen Empires”, on the 20th of November 2015 through the Swedish label, Ulterium Records. They played some successful gigs in several Greek cities like Athens, Thessaloniki, Agrinio, Larisa. They also opened for the legendary SANCTUARY on their last greek show in the summer of 2017 and appeared in many music festivals, such as “CHANIA ROCK FESTIVAL 2016”, “ELEMENTS OF ROCK 2017” in Switzerland, “FEARLESS FESTIVAL 2016” and “BRAINSTORM FESTIVAL 2018″ in the Netherlands,”LET’S ROCK FESTIVAL 2017” at Inofita, “UNDER THE QUARRY FESTIVAL 2017” and also at the famous “UP THE HAMMERS FESTIVAL 2017” in Athens!
Their following album “REALMS OF TIME” released on the 7th of June 2019, through Ulterium Records with the production of Fotis Benardo (ex-SEPTIC FLESH, SIXFORNINE). The band showed great musical improvement, gaining even more recognition and metal fans in Greece, Europe, USA and Latin America. They started a Greek tour supporting their second album and played in Athens, Arta, Agrinio, Volos ,Komotini and Thessaloniki. Unfortunately, after February 2020 they had to cancel all their scheduled European and Greek shows due to COVID-19 pandemic. During this period, they focused on writing new material for their next album. The recordings have started in the summer of 2022 under the production guidance of Fotis Bernardo.
