The Norwegian progressive metal band Divided Multitude was formed in 1995. The band's influences are bands like Dream Theater, Accept, Manowar and other bands of that genre, but also some of the other varius metal genres. Upon first listen to this Norwegian progressive metal outfit, hopes are high. Divided Multitude has a wonderfully technical approach to their music, especially in the guitar department. Their songwriting is similar in approach to Dream Theater, except much more metallic and heavy, which is not to say that the band lacks a quiet, introspective side either.
