The Dogs Divine
Size of the Fight
January 2012
Released: 2011, Mortal Music Inc
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: UK Team

Founded in 2007, the band were quickly signed to Chavis Records and released their debut album in the summer of 2008 and with the quote "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." The phrase seemed so appropriate that The Dogs Divine titled their second album Size of The Fight. 2011 releasing Size of The Fight.

This really is a great album, clearly taking influences from Pantera and AC/DC it’s definitely putting Rock back on the map, with great groovy guitars and mixing deep southern metal sounds! Their new album is heavier and has 11 great tracks, and even covers the classic Queen track "I´m in love with my car" with tracks such as ”Dogs" and "Overnight Sensation" having a more metal feel to them, while "Gypsy King" showcases the band's ability to switch it up with acoustic slide guitar and upright bass, with each track bringing something different, I have to say I really enjoyed this album.

The band states; "We didn't worry about genres or trends; we just wanted to write something that had all the elements of a great Rock album" says vocalist Tom Hart. "We wanted to have an instrumental and we wanted to remake a classic song like we did with Queen's "I'm in Love with My Car."

We didn't want just collection of songs that all sounded the same."

The band are now ready to hit the road and bring their style of Rock to the masses. "It's been a rough road," says Jim Hart. "We have been through member changes, managers, booking agents, and everything else you can think of, but at the end of the day we just wanted to keep going and write new music."

It was when Tim King (Soil) heard the demo track 5. "Hell Wouldn't Have Me" and immediately signed them to Mortal Music Inc. If you like the classic Rock, Metal sounds with great guitars and catchy songs, then this is one album to check out. The future is looking good for these guys!
