Divension is a five-man Melodic Death Metal band from Sargans, Switzerland. They were originally founded in 2005 as a Slayer coverband, but by now they see themselves as working outside the cliché world of „evil-black-and-white-metal“. Their songs manage to fascinate audiences with gripping riffs, melodious choruses and exciting variety and stay fixed in their ears. Breaking down the boundaries of genres, why not? However, the south-eastern Swiss don’t forgot the necessary heaviness and passion.
At it’s conception through mastermind and songwriter Roger Baumgartner and bassist Philipp Kräuchi back in 2005 nobody could have suspected that 15 years later their debut album „Conquer the dying Sun“ would release. After a few lineup changes and a break of four years, Divension has been playing in their current formation since 2019.
Together with Domo Bösch, who’s bin shouting his multifaceted vocals into the pit since 2007, guitarist Pete Streit who’s been firing his rythmic riffs since 2021 the bundle of energy and live monster Chriggi Vogt, who’s been strumming his bass strings since 2021 as well as newcommer Dominik Gisler as infernal Drummer since 2019, their founder Roger Baumgartner has an excellently functioning and well played group at his disposal.
The guys from Divension have set themselves one unified goal: the display of joyful musicianship and energetic livegigs in great quality.
October 2020 marks the long awaited release of their debut album „Conquer the dying Sun“. Among many new songs, the album also contains a retrospective of the last 15 years of their musical work. Songs with thrash-inspired elements may be found inbetween melodic death and alternative metal. The titular song is a true epos, clocking in at a whopping 12 minutes and is simply meant to be enjoyed.
