Biography

Divine Eve was formed on a bleak, late winter day in February 1992 by Michael A. Sleavin (rhythm guitar & vocals) and Matthew Killen, (drums & backing vocals) both of whom were in a band called Catharsis. They were soon joined by Xan Hammack (lead guitar & vocals) and Tyson Lueck (bass & backing vocals) and were preparing for their debut recording, “The Last of the Sunset Faded,” in October 1992. Just before the studio sessions took place, Tyson quit the band and all bass tracks were recorded by Hammack. Tyson rejoined the fold six months later in May 1993 and remained a full-time member until their disintegration nearly two years later. 500 cassette copies of “The Last of the Sunset Faded” sold rapidly and by November 1993, Divine Eve was instantly signed to Nuclear Blast Records for Europe and Nuclear Blast America (Relapse) for the US.

A new promotional EP was recorded in the winter of 1993/94 titled “Essence of Dawn,” which was supposed to be released by both Gothic Records (US) and Candlelight Records (UK) but never happened. One of the EP’s tracks, “Velvet of the Godless” appeared on the Nuclear Blast compilation “Death…Is Just the Beginning III” and impressed the label enough to sign them for a debut full-length recording and extensive worldwide touring. However, things did not turn out for the best.
