DIVINE ANGER - BEHIND THE WALL


Humble heroes never die – Divine Anger’s first single tells Anne Frank’s story with expressive power metal.

Behind The Wall is the first single of the probably most unusual metal band on this planet: Divine Anger. Believe it or not, the six newcomers are from another dimension but are, for the time being, stranded in our reality, pushing hard on their metal journey as they try to get back home. But let us not stray from the path. Let’s talk about their music.

Behind The Wall tells the touching story of the Frank family, who had to hide from the Nazis during World War II. Changing perspectives, thunderous double-bass rhythms, and lightning-fast guitar riffs drive the story forward intensively. But there is also room for quieter moments, which makes the song more dynamic and creates strong tension. All these elements together result in a sound that the band describes as expressive power metal, which ranges from melodic to aggressive but is always catchy as hell!

Power metal is familiar territory for Divine Anger, but the band builds musical bridges toward melodic death metal as well. This is also the case with Behind The Wall, where growls, screams, and clean vocals alternate and connect organically, reflecting the tensions of the historical background.

In 1942, the situation of the Jewish Frank family became so threatening that they had to go into hiding in a back building in Amsterdam. Anne Frank wrote her world-famous diary there. On August 4, 1944, the Nazis found the Franks’ hiding place. A few weeks later, the family was taken to Auschwitz, and its members were separated. Anne died in the Auschwitz concentration camp in early 1945. It was the brave girl’s wish that her story be told over and over again so that she and her loved ones could live on in people’s hearts even after their deaths. Divine Anger’s song is a small contribution to the fact that “Humble heroes never die.”

If you like intensive power metal, vivid storytelling, and getting hooked on to an emotional heavy rollercoaster ride, then this is definitely for you.

In one word : Excellent !!!

Behind The Wall is part of a concept EP on which the band is currently working. So, the song will later fit into a bigger framework story. The EP will be released in early 2021, and it is certain that a second single will be put out on the way to its release.
