Greece’s heavy metal band DIVINER was formed in 2011, by long-time
friends and music partners, Yiannis Papanikolaou (vocals) and Thimios Krikos
(guitars).The two of them were together in a band in the first album of INNERWISH,
entitled “Waiting for the dawn” (1998) and after a long time of different musical
quests they decided to join their forces in a new band, wanting to create
something powerful, deep, heavy, melodic and dark metal music with fresh sound.
Diviner released their debut album, “Fallen Empires”, on the 20 th of November
2015 through the Swedish label, Ulterium Records.They played some
succesful gigs in several Greek cities like Athens, Thessaloniki, Agrinio,
Larisa, they opened for the legendary SANCTUARY on their last greek show
in the summer of 2017 and appeared in many music fests, such as CHANIA
ROCK FESTIVAL 2016, ELEMENTS OF ROCK 2017 in Switzerland,
Netherlands, LET’S ROCK FESTIVAL 2017 at Inofita and also at the
legendary UP THE HAMMERS FESTIVAL 2017 in Athens!
Their following album “REALMS OF TIME” released on the 7 th of June 2019,
through Ulterium Records with the production of Fotis Benardo (ex-SEPTIC
FLESH, SIXFORNINE) . The band showed great musical improvement,
gaining even more recognition and metal fans in Greece, Europe, Latin
America and USA. In order to support their sophomore album they started a
small Greek tour playing in Athens, Arta, Agrinio, Volos ,Komotini and
Thessaloniki. Unfortunately after February 2020 they had to cancel all their
future European and Greek shows due to COVID pandemic.
So during this period they focuced on writing new material and started
recording in the summer of 2022 under the production guidance of Fotis
Benardo. Their third album “AVATON” will be released on the 10 th of
