Reviewers comments on Divine Self Invention:
From Terrorizer, May 2016.
Online reviews (links to full review under quotes):
“Kinasis make no secret of their drive to succeed, and that attitude shines through on this album. They are taking no prisoners……”
“…complex time-changes next to some irresistible hooks; a bit of grind and a bit of groove…..”
“I need to see this band live. I might start making enquiries and see if I can get them to come and play in my living room tomorrow… Superb.”
Score: 4.5 out of 5
Nicola Edwards @ TBFM
“‘Divine Self Invention’ is a solid slice of groove-laden industrial edged metallic monstrosity….”
“Huge, punishing riffs, packed with enough punching power to instantly floor all but the most redoubtable heavyweight champion, combine with massive melodies which immediately immerse you in the dense layers of the tunes.”
“The twin guitars entwine and writhe around the basic rhythm structures, which in turn possess enough levity to let the talent of their protagonists shine through the intensity of the overall performances.”
“…an interesting, layered album which benefits from repeat listenings to explore its full breadth and depth.”
Score: 4 out of 5
Mark Ashby @ planetmosh.com
“Kinasis brings back what metal was, and is to come.”
“THIS ALBUM IS THE REASON METAL CORE MUSIC WAS CREATED! PURE EUPHORICA!”
“This album and this band is rates high on my best metal album ever created.”
“…these guys are the real deal. They are humble and they are one of the best melodic metal bands that have graced our generation.”
Score: 5 out of 5
