Fun charity collaboration that showcases cover tunes from traditional bands
Blood Divisions is a collaboration between Chris Jericho (Fozzy), Dave Austin (Nasty Savage) and Ed Aborn (Intersonic Cyber Symphony). The group invites notable Floridian all-stars like Terry Butler and Ken Andrews (Obituary), Ralph Santolla (ex-Obituary, ex-Deicide) and Bill Owen (ex-Purgatory) to name a few. The band’s EP, ‘Cardinal One’, will have proceeds donated to Rock and Rescue. Of the six-tracks featured, two are from Nasty Savage – opener “The Morgue”, which has a different arrangement and dynamic than its predecessor, and “No Sympathy”, complete with Nasty Savage’s vocalist Nasty Ronnie trading off with Jericho. The band hits he soaring feel-good UFO cover “Hot ‘N’ Ready” and Scorpions cut “Top of the Bill”. Fitting. The bulk of the guest work I assume is on the seven-minute instrumental “March of the Machine Elves”.
