TORTURE DIVISION Releases Cover Of MASTODON's 'Iron Tusk'

TORTURE DIVISION, the Swedish death metal project featuring guitarist Lord K. Philipson (THE PROJECT HATE, ex-GOD AMONG INSECTS, LEUKEMIA), bassist/vocalist Jörgen Sandström (VICIOUS ART, THE PROJECT HATE, ex-ENTOMBED, GRAVE) and drummer Tobias "Tobben" Gustafsson (VOMITORY, THE PROJECT HATE), has issued the following update:

"Wanna hear what MASTODON really should sound like? We thought so, and that's why we have decided to record a cover of their tune 'Iron Tusk'.

"Why this particular song? None of us listens to MASTODON, you know.

"Well, to make a long story short; this cover was meant to end up on a compilation CD (spanning over albums from the 1990s to 2011, and we all know MASTODON's a quality act that people obviously dig, recording a tune by them would give us major exposure to further dominate the world… ahem…), that eventually never saw the light of day — meaning we now give it to you because we are absolutely amazing.

"This is how we would have made this song, had we written it in the first place. But we didn't, we just thought it would be nice to MASTODON to make a proper tune out of it.

"Kidding, kidding… MASTODON's cool. They are no TORTURE DIVISION, but hey — can't win them all.

"Hope you guys enjoy it — we sure did when we recorded it.

"Thanks to Dan Swanö (ex-EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH, NIGHTINGALE) för another amazing production courtesy of Unisound."

TORTURE DIVISION last summer completed work on the third part of the band's second demo trilogy, "Evighetens Dårar".

The track listing for the effort is as follows:

01. The Axe Murderer
