"Filthy Divine-- Experience The Musical Energy"

Filthy Divine-- Experience The Musical Energy

Filthy Divine's eclectic style reaches out with its transcendental energy and pours pure, unbridled passion into the listener's soul. The lead, rhythm, and bass guitar reverberate in audacious, high-voltage style, screaming fiercely with hard rock, pop, blues, as well as many punk rock chords, which savagely creates a unique sound of their own. The drummer leaves one breathless with his heart-pounding beats.

Viva, the lead female singer and lyricist, has a diverse voice which captivates with her talent and intensity. Fervent melodies roll off her tongue with cool confidence, lashing and caressing the listener with a bitter sweetness. Her altruistic voice croons diabolically with raw sensuality. Her lyrics haunt, casting spells for you to listen closer. It's like each word has the ability to reach out into time and space, grasp tightly upon one's senses, feverishly drawing one's spirit into her songs.
Filthy Divine is new to the Twin Cities area, forming in 2001 in Northeast Minneapolis at a house party. These kindred spirits coincidentally gathered, intermingled their musical talents, and soon discovered that when they played, it all merged magically, in synch.

There's the angelic, yet fiery voice of Viva Long. Nick "El Gato" Torres strums with style and benevolence on his lead guitar. John Holtz and Nate Cole ride his musical waves on the rhythm and bass guitar. And Scott Albreck pounds with passion on his drums.

In less than three months, Filthy Divine composed five compelling ballads. In less than six, the band recorded them independently at Grand Junction Records in Waterloo, Iowa, creating their first CD, Filthy Divine. They only had one day in the studio. Despite their short recording time and independent label, the music which was produced sounds strong and professional.

The group's name, Filthy Divine, defines their talent. It's laced with infernal bliss, clawing at the deepest part of your being, making one feel the dark and the light in their music. The band has played at several Minneapolis Venues, such as Legend's Bar and Grill and the Fine Line Café. They've played at The Terminal Bar and Grill in Northeast Minneapolis on September 26, 2002.

Filthy Divine continues to compose new songs and to play popular Twin City venues, independent of management. They are currently seeking someone to oversee their musical endeavors, and hope to find an experienced agent who can further nourish their talents and career.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Filthy Divine was formed in late 2001 in NE MPLS MN, and a new era of rock was born.
Screaming Guitars, with a powerful Rhythm Section, set the foundation for the soulful and angelic voice of vocalist Viva Long.
Always hard rockin', and a little bit pop, this is a band to see as well as hear, and definitely to enjoy.
Filthy Divine's fan base continues to grow as is evident by the increasing amount of attendance at recent shows, and continued sell-outs of their initial CD " Live at the Fine Line " (c.2003 FD Records), and their newest CD "This is Filthy Divine" (c.2004 on Aquarium Records, a Division of The No Alternative Music Group).
Filthy Divine is an all-original MPLS Hard Rock band with elements of Power Rock, Punk, and Pop, along with a lil' funky edge, making for a high energy, out of your seats kind a show.
Filthy Divine creates a new level of Rock and Roll as this High Energy Power Pop Rock Band brings forth their debut Album, "This is Filthy Divine". Acclaimed by Nel Harrison as " The Greatest New Band in Minneapolis" (City Pages, 2004), Filthy Divine is taking the Rock Scene by Storm. From the Melodic "Ambrosia" to the Heavyness of "Destabilize", from the Rock'n "America" to the Pop Anthem " Lack of Friends", Filthy Divine creates a refreshing new breath of fresh air on the music scene today. Like a Musical Sideshow ,"This is Filthy Divine" will definately take the listener through an enjoyable journey through a carnival of music, leading the way through the sideshow of musical wonder, and landing squarly in the funhouse.
