23 years ago Pantera redefined heavy metal music for decades to come. The history of heavy music has now come full circle with the birth of Division 1.1, leading the path to the future of Modern Metal. The result is some pretty "in-your-face" anthemic yet thought-provoking music! Singer Rob Middleton runs the gamut between ear-shattering primal screams and melodic tenor stylings, all with the bravado of a consummate front man. Guitarist John Barone provides the crushing rhythms and impressive precision riffing, complimented by some tasteful solos and blistering leads. Bassist/keyboardist Steve Ratchen brings his heavy progressive and neo-classical playing and songwriting influences to the group, along with his signature 7 and 14 string instrumentation, which is rather like adding Geddy Lee or John Myung to Mercyful Fate! Drummer Brian Brennan is a veritable force of nature, whether he's employing Slayer-esque double-bass machine-gun delivery, stop-on-a-dime progressive paradidls or laying down a funk-metal groove, Brian's the engine providing D1.1 it's battery power! If "take no prisoners" metal that doesn't compromise on technical or lyrical integrity makes you want to bang your head, check out D1.1's new 2012 CD entitled "With A Vengeance" as well as our self titled Demo CD 'Division 1.1' both available for purchase or download through this website!

The fuse has been lit and we want you there to witness the explosion!
