TORTURE DIVISION, the Swedish death metal project featuring guitarist Lord K. Philipson (THE PROJECT HATE, GOD AMONG INSECTS, ex-LEUKEMIA), bassist/vocalist Jörgen Sandström (VICIOUS ART, THE PROJECT HATE, ex-ENTOMBED, GRAVE) and drummer Tobias "Tobben" Gustafsson (VOMITORY), recently entered the studio to begin recording the second part of the band's second demo trilogy, "Evighetens Dårar". The group states, "[Jörgen Sandström] finished up his vocals this past Saturday so all we are waiting for now is some guest vocals that we hope will happen. We are not going to wait around forever for those to come in so if it takes more than a few days, we will scrap the idea and use those vocals on the last part of Trilogy 2 instead."
The band adds, "This is shaping up real nice and hopefully we'll be able to hand over everything to [Dan] Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH, NIGHTINGALE) for the mixing job [as soon as possible.
"Four tunes have been recorded. One of those four goes for a compilation album that we'll participate on.
"You'll get three amazing 'n' blasting tunes on the demo — and we are positive you will fucken adore the insanity and intensity displayed within them. We are truly satisfied with how they sound and can't wait for Swanö to give them that final punch that comes with his amazing productions."
"Evighetens Dårar I" was released in August and it featured the songs "Heretics! Now!", "Eld Och Plågor" and "Traumatic Inhuman Severance". The demo was once again mixed by Dan Swanö. For one of the songs, TORTURE DIVISION invited its fans to send in a recording of them screaming the word "HAIL!", with and every one of the few hundred contributions making it into the song.
TORTURE DIVISION's first demo trilogy — which was previously available for free download via the band's web site — was released on vinyl on April 6, 2009 via Vic Records. The recordings were also made available in CD format through Abyss Records. Entitled "With Endless Wrath We Bring Upon Thee Our Infernal Torture", the effort contains the band's "Suffer The Shitmass" seven-inch EP as bonus tracks.
