A Christian metalcore unit based out of San Antonio, Texas, Darkness Divided specialize in punchy, groove-laden tech-metal with a message.
Founded in 2010 as a worship band in the vein of Third Day and Jeremy Camp, the band transitioned to heavier fare shortly after forming, citing influences like As I Lay Dying and the Devil Wears Prada. Built around the talents of vocalist Gerard Mora, bassist Joseph Mora, guitarist Sebastian Elizondo, and drummer Hayden Allen, the band released their debut EP, Chronicles, independently in 2012. The EP caught the ear of Victory Records, which signed the band the following year and issued their first full-length outing, Written in Blood, in 2014. Tours alongside genre heavies like Colossus, For Today, and August Burns Red followed, and in 2016, the band released their eponymous sophomore studio long player again via Victory. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
