Divine Heresy

Divine Heresy is an American metal band formed by founder of Fear Factory, guitarist Dino Cazares. Although the band’s origins trace back to 2002, Divine Heresy was officially formed in 2006. The band currently consists of guitarist Cazares, former Vital Remains drummer and current World Under Blood drummer Tim Yeung, former Nile bassist Joe Payne and vocalist Travis Neal. Tommy “Vext” Cummings was fired from Divine Heresy following an onstage altercation on April 26, 2008. After holding Auditions for a new frontman for the band, it was announced on August 14 that The Bereaved vocalist Travis Neal is to fill the position.

The band’s debut album Bleed the Fifth was released on August 28, 2007, and sold 2,700 copies in its first week. Receiving generally positive reviews, Eduardo Rivadavia of Allmusic commented the album “strikes a near-perfect balance between confirmation and innovation”, while Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer commented “All in all, the portly pioneer (Cazares) has hit the bull’s-eye”.  The 2nd album tentatively titled “Bringer of Plagues” was slated for a July 28 release via Century Media Records.
