Heavy D who did the sound for our gig at Eindhoven did some soundboard recordings as well, which he shares with you here. Have a listen and enjoy what you missed. Once again we can’t thank you guys who came out for the show and made it a very memorable evening for us. We can’t wait to get back to Holland sometime in the near future. When you least expect it…

When things are moving, things are fucken moving. J entered the studio last night and recorded all of his vocals for the new demo. During this week he’ll also record his bass and then the demo is off to Mr. Swanö for the mix, which he will try to handle as soon as possible in January. This means you should be able to hear this coming slab of death metal greatness early 2012. What a lovely way to start off the new year, huh? You can thank us by purchasing a shirt or just donate a buck or 2 for future recordings. And yes, we plan to complete the next demo a hella lot faster than this one. Or not. We’ll see.
Anyways, now you know what’s up.

Today, J entered the studio for the recordings of his vocals for the coming demo. We know it’s taken longer than expected for us to get to this point, but things happen when they happen. He’s also brought himself a friend to the studio for some guest vocals, but we’re not giving his name away just yet. We have a few cool things coming up in the near future, but we can’t say anything more about that right now, you’ll just have to wait a little longer. Just trust us when we say that Torture Division is on a roll. If everything goes as planned, the new demo will be available sometime late January, 2012.
You want the Punkmonkey shirt? Yeah, that’s what we call it. It’s a lot funnier in Swedish though, but hey… can’t win them all. Anyways, the merch section is updated with information as for how to order the latest shirt. Hurry up to buy one, there’s not many copies left since the heroes of Holland at Eindhoven Metal Meeting decided to buy the fuck out of our merchandise (and the fact we decided to give out shirts left and right prolly helped too, haha). We have also received another batch of albums (the first one) from Abyss Records to sell so we can finance further recordings and whatnot so make sure to get one of those. Obviously there’s been a 2nd print of “With endless wrath”. We guess this means we are now superstars. Also, in case you were home playing with your synthesizers this weekend when we destroyed Eindhoven, here’s a clip for ya so you can watch how this death metal thing is supposed to be done.
Now Torture Division will take the rest of the year off (except for completing the new demo of course, which means we are not taking any time off at all actually) and we’ll be back at full force in 2012.
Suffer the shitmass, bastards, and thanx for your great support in 2011.

We just got home from Holland after the extremely satisfying gig at Eindhoven Metal Meeting. Our first “real” gig abroad (playing Norway isn’t really being “abroad” for us Scandinavians, you know), and doing it at a place like this was absolutely phenomenal. The crowd threw together a circle pit and went completely apeshit on numerous occasions. We can do nothing but applaud them for treating us with that. Holland – you guys rule.
We wanna say thanks to all of you who attended and made this a very precious memory to us. We also wanna give mad props and respect to Danny and Mike from God Dethroned for being absolutely wonderful people and for helping us out with everything. Heavy D for getting us a great fucken sound. Roman, the organizer of the festival deserves a huge thanx for bringing our asses down there. Cheers to the Sinister guy and his friends who sold our merch. Anders of Unleashed once again comes thru and helps us with all kinds of things. All of you guys are superheroes and we can’t thank you enough. Also, kudos to these guys who have taken the photo you can see above, as well as the ones you can find here.
In a few days we will update the merch section with the remaining shirts (we sold everything we brought to Holland, but naturally we saved a few shirts at home) asap. Keep your eyes open.
