DESCRIPTION - Diverje formed by Tommy T Rapisardi in 1995. combining elektro - industrial, aggressive coldwave, melodic EBM, and splatterings of power noise, experimental and drum-n-bass, Diverje is a band built for the future. always adding and collaborating with new members, and new ideas, Tommy T keeps this band sounding unpredictable, and off centered from the more "popular, and watered down electronica" that we mostly hear as the mainstream "representative" for electronic music in America. Diverje keeps an open mind, but without submitting to trends or following the crowd. the great collaborators worldwide have kept Diverje more intresting and daring than most. Raw, aggressive, thought provoking, and emotional sounds... this is what Diverje is about.
Electro-industrial/EBM with dashings of drum n' bass, powernoise, and metal influences.
INFLUENCES - many bands, and artists have influenced the sound of Diverje... but the main ones are... Leather Strip, Devo, Aghast View, Biopsy, Skinny Puppy, X-marks the Pedwalk, A23, Evils Toy, FLA, The Clash and Cubanate.
Leather Strip, Aghast View, ESR, Skinny Puppy

review by Luke R. (DJ IZ)
"Amphibian" is a tribute to the excellent music and sound that Diverje is known for. At the same time it's also a great progression in Diverje's sound, as it involves collaborations throughout almost the entire album. Projects such as E.S.R, Bio-Mechanical Disintegration, Liar's Rosebush, Moon Rock, Auspex, Korrupt Data, Liquefaction and Soul Circuit (as well as other individuals who may not have a project to name, but are still amazingly talented) contributed to this release. Outside of the electro-industrial sound that Diverje has produced, stronger elements of drum'n'noise, breakbeats, and electro are present.
This album also has some amazing lyrics, which I encourage everyone to read, as a lot of emotion went into them. To quote Tommy T from the CD booklet, "This album is my story about the human race, some of its biggest failures, flaws and personal divisions, and stories I have to tell as well". So don't just let these tracks go in one ear and out the other - soak them in as they have more feeling than fluff. If you want fluff, turn on top 40 radio.
The CD also presents a lot of nature sounds, which further add to it's uniqueness. I think it's pretty obvious why the album in titled "Amphibian" .
One thing to note for DJs is that quite a few songs this CD are club-friendly. I found myself thinking of all types of ways to add these tracks to a mix, and that's not even on the remix disc. This may not have even been an attempt to appeal to clubs, but it works out all the same without any compromise to the uniqueness of Diverje as a project.
