Divine Heresy is an American metalcore/death metal band, formed in 2006 by Fear Factory and Asesino guitarist Dino Cazares. After searching for a drummer, he recruited Tim Yeung, a former member of Vital Remains and Hate Eternal. After successful jam sessions, they decided to form the band. After eight months of writing and rehearsing, Cazares recruited Tommy Vext as the band's vocalist. They then recorded their debut album Bleed the Fifth between February and May 2007.
