Divine Era’s Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts Is Impressive


L.A.-based groove metal solo act, Divine Era, has released his third full-length album, Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts, an 11-track, intensely layered collection of pounding metal.

After a quick listen, there’s an interesting quirk to a few of these tracks; while the groove is definitely there, some of the riffing sounds to be really inspired by ‘80s glam metal. Definitely something that sounds great in the mix. In addition to the Pantera-inspired groove, there’s also definite thrash metal and a few progressive influences to be heard. And if Lamb of God is ever in need of a new singer, Daisuke Wachi should be their first choice; his vocals are spot-on for Randy Blythe.

Daisuke Wachi commented on the album:

Divine Era’s music is strongly influenced by Pantera and old Machine Head. This newest album, Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts, definitely has that old-school heavy metal vibe. I sing and scream throughout the groovy riffs entwine[d] with calculated drum patterns.

I love playing guitar solos. You will hear plenty on this LP. I’m not much of a shredder. I do my own thing with feel and a lot of chicken picking. My main personal influences are Dimebag Darrell, SRV, and Zakk Wylde.

The main focus is to not only write groovy songs that make people move, but to compose different sounding songs, each with its own color, making them all easily identifiable.

I’m very happy with how this album came out and hope you enjoy listening as well.
