Artist: Torture Division
Title: Satan, Sprit och Våld
Torture Division is a Swedish old-school type Death Metal band wich releases all their demos for free, a smart way to reach out to more listeners and instead concentrate on selling merch and gig-tickets. The title of the Demo would translate to “Satan, Liquor and Violence”. If you like old school death metal this is the thing for you as Torture Division got it all, growl, blast beats mixed up with a nice touch of thrash-metal, and the members in this three-piece band are no beginners in the scene, Lord K Philipsson have played with The Project Hate and been live guitarist for Dark Funeral and Grave, Jörgen Sandström have played with Entombed and Grave and Tobben Gustafsson who also plays in The Project Hate.
If you want to download this demo for free (wich i highly recommend you to do), or all the other demos the band have made, go to their homepage.

Artist: Inverted Cross
Title: Summoning the Dead
Here is a new Swedish Death Metal band i just heard off from a forum. Inverted Cross plays old school Death Metal and does it really good. It’s always nice when the new kids picks up influences from the older bands, specielly when you can hear that they knows what they are doing! The Demo is available to listen to for free from the band itself, and will also be released as a cassette tape. Now i just hope they will put out a 7″ soon. Good stuff. Enjoy!

Artist: Witches Coven
Title: Fire Signs
Witches Coven is a new an upcoming band from Umeå Sweden who play classic heavy metal highly influential by Mercyful Fate, there are alot of these kind of bands coming nowadays with occult theme and influences from 70’s psych and early Heavy Metal, the best ones i think are In Solitude and Portrait. Witches Coven are not near the same quality as those bands, but with time who knows?
This is a three track demo wich you can listen to for free on the bands MySpace page, it’s nothing wrong with the music it’s the singer i think is the biggest problem, i would like more high pitch in the vocals for this kind of music. But still it was a joy to check out the bands demo. My favourite of the demo would be the title track, wich start’s off with a dark and gloomy into.
