Iris Divine Signs with IntroMental Management

IRIS DIVINE - Karma SownExciting things are happening for Iris Divine... the band has just announced that they have partnered with IntroMental Management. The management company will be taking Iris Divine's new album, Karma Sown, to the next level with plans for a wider release.

Here's the official word from Iris Divine:

Iris Divine is thrilled to announce that we have partnered with IntroMental Management!!

IntroMental's current roster includes fantastic bands like Leprous, Halcyon Way and Kingcrow, and we are honored to be in such company. Here's hoping to a great relationship and an exciting 2015.

Stay tuned for information on the wider release of Karma Sown!

I know that a lot of you are eager to hear about when you can get your hands on the album, if you missed your chance to preview it on their Bandcamp page before it was removed. Rest assured, we'll bring you details as soon as we get them. In the meantime, you can take a peek at our pre-release review and get an idea of what you're in for.

As always, this album (once it gets released, of course) and many others will be available through our web shop. A portion of all proceeds from the shop goes towards helping local metal and musicians grow and get through this trying time in our industry.

The IntroMental website now has a profile up for ID, and this is what it says:

With a brand of emotional, progressive hard rock/ metal not quite like anything else out there, Iris Divine is prepared to introduce its infectious sound to the world via the new record KARMA SOWN.

The band is a three-piece at heart, musically rooted in the raw energy and rhythmic interplay of Rush and King's X. Fans of dark, guitar-driven rock bands from Alice In Chains, Deftones to the contemporary metal riffing of Lamb of God and Pantera, will connect to the heavy core of Iris Divine's sound. Add to that progressive complexity and moody synths inspired by Dream Theater and Porcupine Tree, and a liberal dose of memorable hooks and melodies, to understand some elements of Iris Divine's sound. And yet, the band has a distinct identity, not quite sounding like any of the aforementioned bands, and with an emotional urgency that pulls subtly from alternative and other influences.

Hailing from northern Virginia, USA, the band has opened for such acts as Katatonia, Orphaned Land, Fates Warning, and Periphery, channeling its studio output into intense, passionate live performances that balance precision with in-the-moment catharsis. Often called a "musician's band", Iris Divine has time and again earned the respect of its regional peers, and could well become new faces gaining prominence among the musician community on a wider scale.

KARMA SOWN is a triumph of a debut album, immediate and memorable but revealing layers and depth upon repeated listens.

With the potential to make a connection to a wide range of prog, rock and metal nationally and internationally, Iris Divine looks to 2015 and beyond to bring a new and powerful voice to fans around the world.

Bravo, gentlemen! The local metal community is so proud of you guys. Keep on winning over earholes and hearts until you've conquered all the metal world.

I'm so, so excited to see what the future has in store for these three.
