In this Dream Tour segment, the metalcore band, Dark Divine, reveals who metalcore would want on their ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
Being a band that appreciates the aggressive but melodic approach to the metal genre; we feel it would only be proper for us to choose the artists that also incorporate a shock factor into their aesthetic. Our dream tour hands down would be with Slipknot, Korn & Ice Nine Kills. Each of these bands have approached the metal community with great music that also delivers their own style of dark and eerie vibes.
These bands have seen monumental success in the music industry and each of us have grown up as fans following their journey. All three bands have inspired us and our individual journeys as musicians. They’ve created music and a legacy that will stand the test of time. That’s exactly what we aim to do, and we see no better way than to seek that opportunity by hitting the road with them. Their brands have engaged the masses and we feel we owe it to the metal community to keep that energy alive.
Ice Nine Kills incorporates their outside horror fluences and blends songwriting with storytelling. Their collaboration between the horror genre and the metal community naturally draws us in and has inspired us as a band to not only look the part but sound the part. The “strange and unusual” approach to their craft has discovered a massive market of followers. They would be a choice simply because we love all things metal and horror and have developed a strong appreciation for the attention to detail that they have put into their craft.
Korn introduced and influenced a whole new genre for the metal community noted as NU-Metal. Their songwriting instills massive riffs and bounce that is also a heavy motivator incorporated within our songwriting. Korn has developed one of the most loyal fanbases in the world and each of us have experienced one of their performances dreaming of the opportunity to share the stage with them one day.
The almighty Slipknot shaped the rock and metal industry into something that no one could have predicted. Slipknot is one of the first bands we were all introduced to as aspiring musicians. We have always admired their approach to the “shock factor” mentality of appearance and performance. All massive shows and crowds aside, we’d love to tour with Slipknot as it would only be right for us to give our respects to the history they have set and the inspiration they have given us to do what we do best.
