Bio

Divide & Dissolve is the most intense Neo-classical heavy doom live act you will ever experience. Designed to abolish white supremacy,Takiaya Reed (guitar, saxophone) & Sylvie Nehill (drums) create a colossal wall of sound that takes over your body. Their music is designed to decolonize and dismantle white supremacy and empower Black & Indigenous people over the world.

" The duo is a transformative rite of passage best experienced live and with a desire to be chewed, spat out and restored. You'll feel overpowered by the thickness of their vibrations, the size of their resonance. It will make you realize how in comparison to the size of their wall of amps you are just a speck of dust in the universe.” --- Noisey

“Divide & Dissolve does heavy and loud experimental metal, with doom riffs that would make Neurosis blush” --- Montreal Souni

I can see this fitting well as the music to a black and white movie. It gives you this dark, mysterious sort of need to be consciously aware feeling. It's a moving whirlwind of emotion.

Listening to this on magic mushrooms would be an amazing experience. GEE! The guitars have come in!!!! This is some real haunting/dark stuff coming from this Melbourne metal band. I'm almost too scared to listen to more. Very scary sounding, but I'm intrigued!

3 stars cause I genuinely appreciate the message and stance of this band. But the tunes are a bit too niche for me I think, not hugely into it. This track is my fave of the three, loved the video.
