San Antonio's Darkness Divided Playing One Last Show Before Retiring

Formerly on the illustrious hardcore/metal label Victory Records, San Antonio’s metalcore outfit Darkness Divided has had an impressive run.

Since 2010, the now-three-piece band managed to take the waning popularity of metalcore and introduce enough clever dynamics and textures to breathe new life into it. Last year, the band announced they were calling it quits to focus on family and other projects, but not before putting out a self-released five-song EP aptly titled The End of it All. And holy fucking shit, you guys. What a way to go.

Not only is this collection of music, dare I say, the heaviest of all their albums, but there’s an experimental element in the songwriting reminiscent of fellow Jesus-loving metal folk Extol, and it bangs. Congrats, dudes. Thanks for the tunes.

With Charcoal Tongue, Coldcasket, XURL, Just A Dream, Taken By Tides, A Tragic Setback, Send Help, Vernon of Persia, A House Divided, Goldmill, Crossways, Relent, Halogen, Mourning Sun, Remnants - US, Buried Alike, I am Human, Pityforahero.
