After a handful of singles and a brief hiatus, Toronto’s The Divided Line return tomorrow with their debut EP Paramnesia. Instantly apparent is just how much this self-imposed hiatus has paid off as their brand of progressive and melodic rock is tighter and more focused than ever. The influence of late 90s and early 2000s hard rock radio is strong but the band’s commanding approach and moving lyrics make this an EP you don’t want to miss. And to that point, we have a full stream just ahead of tomorrow’s release. Head inside to take a listen and hit the links contained for your own copy.
Based on that, inspirations from bands like Tool and Deftones are indeed evident but the, at times, unconventional song structures combined with very subtle use of atmosphere bring this band’s sound alive and into the present day kicking and screaming.
