Division proves that stellar songwriting and compelling lyrical content never go out of style. Hailing from the morass of frustration that is our nation’s capital, this undeniably contemporary, and unapologetically metal, band has a long history of leveling audiences with its massive sonic assault.
It takes a lot to stack up to the giants and win over fickle audiences, but Division does just that on a regular basis. Testament, Nevermore, Kamelot, Dio, King Diamond, Bruce Dickinson, Symphony X, and Iced Earth are just a few of the powerhouses they have graced the stage with, sending home rabid audiences of crazed music fans with the words of Division songs on their lips. Showcasing dueling leads and sinewy harmonies, pounding rhythms and searing vocals, explosive stage shows and exacting performances, they present the complete package. For over fifteen years, Division has stood, while the trends have come and gone.
Division’s latest offering, Control Issues, delivers a deep assortment of musical textures and emotions through songs that have been forged and tested in the unforgiving world of live concerts. Songs such as the anthemic Hunt, the haunting darkness of Gemini, and the scorching thrash of The Collector, only hint at the twisting voyage that awaits the listener on a disc that is destined to become the best yet from this veteran band.
With the return of original members Scott Stewart and Dan Plunkett to the band, 2012 will see new music and more shows to see them at!
