Biography

(2007 – present)

The rise of torture:

The band was formed in Sweden, 2007 by Lord K Philipson (The Project Hate MCMXCIX) and Tobias Gustafsson (Vomitory) after they terminated their former band God Among Insects. To complete the line up they asked Jörgen Sandström (ex-Grave vocalist/bassist) to join the band. Immediately Torture Division started to write songs, fired up a website and did what they could to make their cause known.

A few rules were set up from the start:

1. The band was to be a three piece. An army of three.

2. At least 3 demos should be released before they even considered a record deal. The reason for that is that they wanted some time for the band to develop instead of writing a half-assed album. To this day, numerous record deals have been turned down in favour of recording demos and give away the music for free. To actually give away the music is one of the strongest agendas of Torture Division.

3. There is no riff good enough to not contain a blastbeat.

The recordings:

With those rules put in effect the band recorded their 1st demo “With endless wrath” (24.361 downloads to this date) from December 2007 to January 2008 over a few days. The 2nd demo “We bring upon thee” (26.793 downloads to this date) made it into 1’s and 0’s in April/May 2008 and the 3rd demo “Our infernal torture” (28.735 downloads to this date) was put down in November/December, 2008. They also recorded a 7” Christmas single called “Suffer the shitmass” (33.298 downloads to this date), released in 4 copies only by a Japanese super fan! That’s a total of over 113.
