Divided By Zero - The Black Sea Review
by Mike Rapin
Upon listening to Divided By Zero, I read two X-Men graphic novels. To me, the sound of Divided By Zero's The Black Sea reminds me of Jubilee. For those who are unfamiliar with X-Men, Jubilee is a somewhat mediocre character whose powers consist of flashing light "something like fireworks" and she is more of a "she's there to create Asian diversity because technically Psylocke is an English woman in an Asian woman's body" type character, she's just there for the sake of being there.
The CD is compiled of some decent musical licks, but nothing too impressive. The drumming is what makes the CD, especially the heavier parts, although some of the quieter/slower parts have some cool beats.
Lyrically, the album is simplistic and plain, but the actual singing is quite good. There isn't much of a metal scream to go along with the reggae/metal tone that is Divided By Zero, but the singing is good nonetheless.
I'm not going to end this without giving some praise to the band, because the CD isn't horrible, but it's simply mediocre (damn you Jubilee!).
A lot of this CD is filled with melodic scales and "happy-go-lucky" riffs and such. This album is probably something you could listen to when you're in a happier mood and want something to "jam" to.
In actuality, a lot of this CD belongs in your typical action flick and is probably something a real metal-fan wouldn't listen too, but I still wouldn't take out the CD player if someone put it in.
