Define : Divine
Style: Death Metal
Release date: October 19th 2009

The Dutch death metal band VERMIN was formed in 2002 and ’Define : Divine’ is the title of their latest release.


In March 2006 they won a band battle in Hamburg, Germany and to some point I can understand why; We get 10 tracks of pure death metal with an okay but a bit muddy production.


VERMIN is at their best when they slow down and provide us with heavy... and I fucking mean HEAVY riffs so catchy that you grab your air-guitar and start playing along. But when they speed things up again they suddenly sound repetitive and a tad monotonous to me.


The drumming is also quite weak at times. Sounds like the drummer is playing on auto-pilot... at least on the fast parts. ’Define : Divine’ is one of those albums that I enjoy listening too, but don’t feel like playing over and over again.


I can recommend it to genre fans... but most of you can still live without it I think.


Good but not great!
