Divine Rite - First Rite (1984)
Secondly, Born in Los Angeles, California in 1982, DIVINE RITE were a traditional
Heavy Metal quartet formed by guitarist Randy Pevler and drummer Jim
Hansen, who had previously played together in a band called THE RABBLE.
After many auditions, the band's original line-up was completed by Jerome "J.P." Powers on lead vocals and Joe Hall on bass.
Influenced by the likes of JUDAS PRIEST and IRON MAIDEN, they became a
huge draw on the Sunset Strip selling out such venues as the
Whiskey-A-Go-Go, The Roxy & the Troubador regularly.
In 1984 Divine Rite released their self financed debut album "First Rite", which became a solid domestic seller.
This led to Divine Rite signing a deal with Greenworld Records who
re-released the album later in the year with a different sleeve and two
extra songs added.
Greenworld's distribution helped bring the band to the attention of European audiences, with the album selling
particularly well in Holland.
However Divine Rite hit problems the following year with Hall and Hansen leaving to pursue other projects.
New blood came in the form of gifted musicians, bassist Robby Pagliari
and drummer Donny Sarian, which led the band to add more progressive
elements to their sound.
Two albums with this lineup followed, the heavier and more complex "Divine Rite II", and the self explanatory
"Divine Rite Live".
Drummer Sarian left the band at the close of 1987 to form MACH 1, to be replaced by Terry Offut.
This line up of Divine Rite stayed together until 1991, but at the end of that year J.P decided to leave.
With Powers gone the remaining three members decided to continue with a new singer, under a new name, NOMAD RAILWAY.
In 1994 with Nomad Railway having split up, guitarist Randy Pevler decided to embark on a solo career.
Since then he has recorded four solo albums, "Back When I Was Sane",
"Inside Looking Out", "Chrome", and "Directions", as well as recently
releasing an album with his side-project band GLASSHAMMER.
