'Divide and Dissolve invest their dense and driven music with a unique perspective. These days, addressing race and gender in doom metal is considered extreme in itself; with Gas Lit the duo demonstrates that extremity is not just found through deftly executed blastbeats and downtuned riffs, but within the decision to create music that defies categorisation.' - The Wire
The duo behind Divide and Dissolve is Takiaya Reed, black and Cherokee and the Maroian Sylvie Nehill. Together they draw attention to the ongoing struggle against systematic oppression. Few bands use their platform as vigorously as Australia's Divide and Dissolve. With their instrumental Drone Doom metal, they stand on the barricades when it comes to 'decolonizing, decentralizing, dismantling and destroying white supremacy'.
They supported Low on tours in North America and Europe in 2022 and will play at Supersonic Festival and End of the Road this year.
