"Seit Black Sabbath hat sich im Genre Doom einiges getan. Heute gibt es diverse Unterkategorien, von Funeral- über Sludge- und Stoner- bis hin zu Drone Doom ist mittlerweile alles denkbar. Pale Divine aus Pennsylvania, immerhin seit 25 Jahren am Start, interessiert das aber überhaupt nicht. Sie spielen auch auf ihrem sechsten Studioalbum die ursprüngliche Variante dieses Sounds mit großer Hingabe und Authentizität. Die Riffs der Combo hätten auch in den 1970ern geschrieben worden sein können, die klaren Stimmen der beiden Gitarristen Greg Diener und Dana Ortt passen perfekt dazu (…) Klassischer (im besten Sinne) kann Rock-Musik nicht klingen

(Metal Hammer)




A metal touchstone of immense proportions - progressive, epic and classic all at once. Pale Divine celebrates 25 years with its most definitive statement to date, Consequence of Time. It s the sound of a band whose sonic evolution is in full stride and unfolds across eight songs of enchanting songwriting and unrivaled metallic diversity.


Bands are rarely looking to reinvent themselves when they reach the 25-year mark. It s a milestone worth celebrating and perhaps, above all else, an indicator of a formula in place that does not need tinkering. Truth be told, most bands who have lasted for such a period would be foolish to do so otherwise. For Pennsylvania metal veterans Pale Divine, the reinvention that takes place on their sixth full-length and first for Cruz Del Sur Music, Consequence of Time, was purely unintentional. It has, however, ultimately unearthed their finest hour. When Pale Divine welcomed former Beelzefuzz guitarist Dana Ortt into the fold in 2018, it was an easy call for the band to make guitarist/vocalist Greg Diener and drummer Darin McCloskey also played with Ortt in Beelzefuzz and were well-aware of his musical abilities and the chemistry the three men shared. Ortt has beefed up the Pale Divine formation (which is completed by bassist Ron McGinnis) he is both a gifted guitarist and vocalist, something the band maximized on Consequence of Time. The album finds Diener sharing vocals with Ortt a first for Pale Divine and furthermore, it has unlocked several new gateways to which the band explored across eight songs of immense depth and haunting melodic flourish. Recorded in late 2019/early 2020 with producer Richard Whittaker, Consequence of Time bears the mark of a band leveraging its wide array of influences for an album that goes beyond what fans may expect from Pale Divine. While elements of the band s essential back catalog remain in place on cuts like opener Tyrants & Pawns and the title track, it is the free-flowing guitar melody barrage on Satan in Starlight, the early progressive rock/metal lurch of Broken Martyr and the mystical wanderings of Phantasmagoria that immediately separates Consequence of Time from previous Pale Divine albums. Not only is there a greater emphasis guitar interplay, Ortt s vocals emerge as the perfect complement to Diener s soulful mid-range, coming to a head on the spiraling closing track, Saints of Fire.


The cover artwork for Consequence of Time was created by artist Brian Tutlo and is the perfect visual accompaniment to an album that, while not conceptual, describes the evolution of the band: Everything changes as a consequence of time. Pale Divine has aged beautifully the last 25 years.
