“With Adveniens, HIDEOUS DIVINITY have made a huge mark in their career… an atomic blast that never seems to stop expanding ever-outward from moment one, never losing momentum, and leaving nothing but ash, dust, and mutation in its aftermath.” – No Clean Singing
With the release of Adveniens, the anticipated new long player from Italian death metal legion HIDEOUS DIVINITY, drawing closer to release, today Decibel Magazine delivers “Sub Specie Aeternitatis” for public consumption.
Elaborates guitarist Enrico Schettino of the track: “Sometimes when you write music, or when you listen to music, you’re blessed with a feeling that may last just a couple of seconds. The feeling that Baruch Spinoza would have called a view from the perspective of the eternal, in Latin is ‘Sub Specie Aeternitatis.’ It’s like our Angelus Novus, becoming one with God and experiencing the truth of what’s first for nature. The nature speaks to the poet, and the poet becomes historian. Here’s an ode to the poet, to the world, and its fumy remains. Here’s another violent reflection on art, using the only language HIDEOUS DIVINITY knows.”

Slated for release on April 28th via Unique Leader, the follow-up to HIDEOUS DIVINITY‘s critically-lauded Cobra Verde full-length was recorded, mixed and mastered at Stefano Morabito’s 16th Cellar Studio (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse etc.) during the Autumn of 2016, includes a rendition of Sinister’s “Embodiment Of Chaos,” and finds HIDEOUS DIVINITY offering up their darkest manifestations yet.
Forged in 2007, HIDEOUS DIVINITY — currently featuring within its ranks current and former members of Hour Of Penance and Aborted — quickly established itself as one of the strongest rising European death metal acts thanks to their signature brand of technical yet gloomy classic styled death metal. Often compared to the likes of Nile, Hate Eternal, and Immolation, the band’s two Unique Leader releases – 2012’s Obeisance Rising and 2014’s Cobra Verde – led to a successful European tour with Cannibal Corpse and Krisiun in the Spring 2016 as well as appearances at some of the most esteemed European extreme metal fests during the last few years. The band will be playing several festivals this Summer including Colony Open Air in Italy July 23rd and Stonehenge Festival in the Netherlands on July 29th. Additional performance to be announced in the coming weeks.
“Adveniens tackles an abundance of mayhem and fury, but balances it out with just enough melody to keep things interesting and varied. There’s intricate musicianship to stimulate the mind, as well as downright violent focus to appease the body. Hard to beat that combination, particularly with that gorgeous artwork to round things out.” – Dead Rhetoric
