Disconnected Souls unveil a piano and vocal rendition of Divergence.
Divergence is one of the most popular tracks by the genre breaking metallers Disconnected Souls. Holly Royle created this emotional, stripped back, keyboard and vocal rendition to give the track a different feel. Divergence is taken from our debut EP Warring Elements which is re-releasing on a limited number of CDs on the 10th September 2021.
The band comments:
«I’ve been spending so much more time at my keyboard over the past few months, and I began breaking down our tracks as a means of practicing. Divergence is our most popular track, at least according to our streaming data, and I find it lends itself to reinterpretation. This is very much a stripped back, one take, piece that isn’t supposed to be ‘perfect’ but gives an insight into our composition methods and shows a different side of our sound», Holly Royle.
Disconnected Souls are happy to announce that we’re doing a limited-edition re-release of debut EP ‘Warring Elements. We’ve been delighted and humbled in equal measure by the love and support which you’ve given us over the last year and couldn’t be more thankful for this! » – Fletch (Matthew Simon Fletcher).
Disconnected Souls aimed to combine three great pillars of music – metal, classical and electronic. The outfit have evolved past this to combine further styles and genres including rap sections. From the epic synth intro Emergence, flowing into the ethereal Divergence, through the utterly heavy of the title track and softer ballad that is Shatter, the EP explores a wide spectrum of the band’s capabilities.
The seven track EP tells the story of two opposing forces as they battle with each other and attempt to make sense of the world around them. It isn’t a straight-forward as good versus evil, it is far more complex than that.
«It’s not about the influences, but the way that the band puts them together into something more unique overall that makes them worth investigation. Their knack for experimentation really gives theman edge» ~ Dead Rhetoric
