Guest review by

For a long time I've wanted to review this album and now taking the chance that Heavenwood is back in force I come here to present you Diva, the first album of the first Portuguese band to play at Wacken.

Back in 1995 Heavenwood was known as Disgorged and played death metal. They changed their name and music style after the tragic suicide of their bassist (Rui Santos, still remembered by those who knew him, may you rest in peace). And then Diva was born, an album in which every single song was made with their hearts, combining a full dose of inspiration, creativity with natural talent. Diva is melodic and strong, the guitar riffs are amazingly very well balanced between catchy and technical, perfectly tuned with the keyboards. The drums are always well placed, the lyrics are still one of the best that I've read. If you fall in love with the music the lyrics will take you even higher.
