It’s been a few years since we’ve heard anything from Divine Heresy, the band featuring Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares, and drummer Tim Yeung. In fact, even though they released a second album, 2009’s Bringer of Plagues, after their pretty excellent 2007 debut Bleed the Fifth, the thing they’re potentially most popular for is when original singer Tommy Vext was very publicly fired from the band following an onstage altercation. Two years ago, Cazares offered an update, and that’s been it. Until today, anyway.
In a short post on Tommy Vext’s Instagram account, Yeung and Vext appeared in a studio offering a surprising revelation that they’re back together now. They don’t have much to say other than “We’re back, stay posted,” and there’s no mention of Cazares or subsequent singer Travis Neal (now in The Bloodline, formerly Dirge Within). Cazares was still talking about the band as recently as two years ago, saying he’d had songs written. However, according to a tweet from Cazares several years ago, he’d said that after listening to Yeung’s drumming on Morbid Angel’s Illud Divinum Insanus, he wouldn’t want him back in the band anyway. Given the way less than amicable way that Vext exited the band, it’s conceivable that the 2014 version of Divine Heresy might not have Dino Cazares in it. And while it’d be hard to say that anyone was clamoring for a third album from Divine Heresy, it’ll still be interesting to see how this plays out.
