The EP „Out of Body Experience” got much attention from the progressive metal society in
Poland. Now the band strikes back with their debut album “Tyranny of Therapy”.
The album has been recorded under the wary eyes of Tomek Zalewski in studio ZED in Olkusz,
The cover and booklet have been designed by the famous Mattias Noren, who worked among others
with bands like Andromeda, Ayreon or Kamelot.
As the Division by Zero musicians say their debut album reflects the psychic and emotional sphere
of human nature, of a man who found him self in an extremely hopeless situation. Lyrical side of
the record is emphasized with the heavy guitar riffs which come along with the dark and moody,
symphonic hues. The whole is fulfilled with the finesse of the rhythm section.

Division by Zero is a band created by artists who treat music as a constant part of their lives. The
band’s foundation was a process rich in twists and turns. Before starting the band its members met
each other in different, various projects: Leszek Trela and Michał Wieczorek formed Abnormal
Fiction. After they split up, Leszek teamed up with Patryk Kumór and they started a band called
Hallow. Michał joined the band called Bronx in which Mariusz Prętkiewicz played drums already.
Finally, In march 2003, all four of the guys founded the brand new band called Division by Zero.
The name holds a symbolic meaning.
Division by Zero is the ability of showing the thoughts through using sounds and divisions which in
theory are wrong or impossible to become reality. This sentence defines the musical direction of the
band, the genre of progressive rock-metal. In the beginning the arrangements were only
instrumental because for various reason the band couldn’t find a vocalist who would fit in the
band’s sound. During that time the guys recorded their first promo EP 'Code of Soul'. In February
2005, after 2 years of seeking, Division by Zero found their vocalist – Sławek Wierny.
When the pieces had been given their final shapes, the band members recorded the set in the MAQ
Records studio. Promotional demo 'out of body experience' was the foretaste of what Division by
Zero has to offer. The band emphasises the right proportion between the energy being released by
the heavy guitar riffs and the atmosphere built with drums, keyboards, bass and vocals.
Over a hundred records were send to different corners of the world and the band got a warm
reception and many good reviews. In Argentina the portal ENCRUCJADA put Division by Zero on
the 3rd place among the newcomers and the student radio ENGIDA interviewed the band. Since the
release of 'out of body experience' you can read about the guys in many respectable internet sites
and portals like interia.pl or independent.pl and many more.
In November 2006 Division by Zero members penned the deal with Insanity Records. In the
meantime the keyboard player Patryk Kumór left the band for various reasons and was replaced by
Robert Gajgier In December 2006.
With this new line-up the band works hard on the debut album 'Tyranny of Therapy' which
shall be recorded in studio ZED in Olkusz.
The cover artwork has been designed by Matias Noren who worked with such artists as
Evergray, Derek Sherinian or Ayreon. The new album from the promising band Division by Zero
will be released by the end of April 2007.
