AXEMASTER's First Promo Song With The Current Lineup Now Available

Axemaster has announced that their first promo song with their current lineup is now available.
Since the band has made it a point to take their time recording and producing the new album and it will still be a while before it's completed, they decided that in the meantime it's important for people to have the opportunity to hear what the current version of Axemaster sounds like together. As it turns out, a couple years ago Joe, Brian, and Jim re-recorded the music of an old Axemaster song that was originally released in 1989 ("Bed of Nails" from Death Before Dishonor) for possible use in another project. That recording never ended up being used but the tracks were saved in the archives. So Joe completely re-mixed the bass and drums and re-recorded the guitar, Tony added the vocals and mastered it, and now the song is being offered to the public free of charge (an MP3 of the song is attached and people can download a copy for free at www.reverbnation.com/axemasterofficial or www.facebook.com/axemasterofficial). Along with being a thank you to all the fans who have supported the band for many years, giving the song away will give as many people as possible the chance to listen to a sample of the new Axemaster. So everyone is welcome and encouraged to share the MP3 in any way (forwarding it to other people, posting it on any websites, etc.). It would be very helpful and much appreciated!!!!!
"Bed of Nails" will NOT be included on the new Axemaster release, it's being used just for promo (the album will include only new material). Also, the recording quality of the album will be better than the promo MP3 (although "Bed of Nails" is good demo quality). Information about the song is included below.
Note - Joe Sims recorded all the guitar for this track with a broken left thumb. Anything for metal!
