Band Information

Paindivision was a heavy metal band that was formed in late 2005 by Dungeon guitarist Stu Marshall, shortly before that band folded. Dungeon/LORD drummer Tim Yatras was also a member briefly but later joined LORD full-time. Before their first show in December 2005, the band changed name to 20 Grams, citing a move away from heavy metal to melodic hard rock. One time Harlots member and Hair of the Dog singer Jordan Howe replaced the original vocalist and in mid-2006 20 Grams supported Black Label Society in Sydney before reverting to the name Paindivision in November, apparently due to a shift back to heavier material. The band's album was released in mid-2007 and followed up shortly after by a Japanese tour. In February 2008 they opened for Helloween in Sydney. Ray Martens departed Paindivision in May 2008. The band's album One Path was released in October. After its release, Mark Hobson from This World joined the line-up and Joe Rahme was replaced by former DragonForce, Marshall Law and Razor of Occam drummer Pete Hunt. Jordan Howe left the band immediately before their performance with Death Angel and Armored Saint in Sydney in March 2009. This show was completed with a stand-in; Dan Quinlan then took over the vocal role. In August Hobson left the band and was replaced by Ben Thomas of Thundasteel. Paindivision fell by the wayside as Marshall concentrated on Empires of Eden and has since formed Death Dealer.
