For Fans Of:  Deftones, Chevelle, Dead Poetic


Divot is a 3-piece rock band hailing from Elmira, NY. With influences that include Tool, Deftones, and Linkin Park, Divot stays true to their musical roots by combining melodic vocals, heavy guitar riffs, and hard-hitting drum grooves. Formed in 2011, Divot has toured across The Northeast and has shared the stage with acts such as Art of Dying, Nonpoint, Candlelight Red, Hawthorne Heights, Madina Lake, and Psychostick. Band members include Cliff Hodson, Paul Felix, and Jeffrey Siptrott.


While this album lies in the comfortable arms of the hard rock genre, it might be white noise to some as it doesn’t immediately stand out on it’s own amongst the Chevelle’s, (old) Linkin Park, and even Trust Company’s (yeah, remember them?) of the rock realm. The opening chords to the Divot track ‘Downer’ are almost identical to Chevelle’s ‘Send the Pain Below’. Now, I’m a sucker for some Chevelle and that’s why I’m partial to Divot’s debut EP “To Shape The Mold”. It’s like the offspring of the hard rock revolution. I can see the potential in the group and give them high marks for keeping the scene alive and not wavering from the formula that made all of those other groups a success.


Divot produced a satisfying, hard-hitting EP with “To Shape the Mold” and it should solidify it’s way into your playlist after the initial immersion.
