Biography

There appears to be approximately 8-9 different bands called DIVE:

Started in 1990, Dive is the solo project of Belgian EBM pioneer and former Klinik and Absolute Body Control frontman Dirk Ivens. Continuing the minimal, menacing electronics of early Klinik releases, but with a heavier, more saturated edge, Dive’s distinct sound has been a highly influential presence in the EBM and electro-industrial scene. Sister project Sonar is an equally respected rhythmic noise project in the vein of Esplendor Geométrico, while the pre-Klinik electropunk project Absolute Body Control was recently reformed with long-time friend and brother-in-law Eric Van Wonterghem of Insekt and Monolith.

Dive are no strangers to the music scene of South New Jersey and Philadelphia, PA (USA). They are a straightforward band of aggressive and melodic rock that compares to the sounds of Three Days Grace, Hoobastank and Fuel. Dive formed back in 2004, taking time to create and focus their sound while playing local club and bar gigs around their hometowns.
