Oh My God the opening line of "Traumatic Inhuman Severance", "My patience below zero, you're out of time"..............
Torture Division make no apologies and I mean NO APOLOGIES for their brutal onslaught that sonically turns your skull inside out, messing you up and then having the sheer audacity and indecency to throw your useless carcass to the floor.
This is one brutal album, make no mistake about that, it is powerful..... Mammoth..... No Gargantuan in sound. Don't believe me? Press play and listen..... No hide..... If you are still standing or can be found after the 27 minute or so onslaught, you are a better man than me.
Lord K.Philipson (guitars), Jorgen Sandstrom (bass / vocals), and Tobias "Tobben" Gustafsson have entered the building again and they aren't leaving, playing at a brutal break neck speed, huge chugging guitar riffs, some really nice lead breaks, rumbling vomit inducing bass tones and blast beat drum work that penetrates and bludgeons your soul. The band has found their feet; they know their gladiatorial arena, thrown down the gauntlet. The guys really know how to abuse their weapons, creating ten sonically awesome songs, drenched with death, gore and torture. These guys aren't messing about.
"Eld Och Plagor" stunning, rhythmic, aggressive, "Total Death Punishment" painful, evil, exacting, the power of "Ravashing Rampage Sluts" is unbelievable and the lyrics, they leave you in no doubt about their brutality. I mean who can record a nine second song "The Axe Murderer" and carry it off, other than Napalm Death? Torture Division, that's who. I can go on about this album.
The genius is in the construct of the songs, but Dan Swano has really excelled in his capacity of recording, mixing and mastering this album. This is not an album for the faint hearted. Be under no illusions, what I heard was nothing short of pure evil and pure genius!
