Decapitated @ Dingwalls, London

26th Feb 2012

Review by Hal Sinden

Gig cancellation or relocation due to poor pre-sales seems to be fairly rife recently, most notably in the Camden area, with a fair few extreme metal gigs being shifted at the last minute from staple mainstays like the Underworld to the spare attic-like confines of venues such as Upstairs at the Islington Garage.

Those who have kept their bookings unchanged have in some cases suffered shockingly poor attendance (especially if the Origin / Psycroptic show in February was anything to go by), it’s therefore heartening to see that this event has remained as booked, however it’s also intriguing to see how well a bill of this intensity will go down at Dingwalls – with “down” being the operative word, given the venue’s tiered flooring system for the audience area.

DECAPITATED are back! Bands like DECAPITATED don’t come along very often, having created a vicious, precise and innovative form of death metal since their inception in 1996. The year of 2011 begins the whole new chapter in the history of the band. The band has released their newest opus, ‘Carnival Is Forever’ via their new label Nuclear Blast. This, their fifth studio album, was produced by Waclaw ‘Vogg’ Kiełtyka, sound engineered by Arkadiusz ‘Malta’ Malczewski , with drums recorded and album mixed by Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN).

Joining the spiteful assault are Belgian death metal legends ABORTED upcoming UK sensation CYANIDE SERENITY. Here comes 2012, ABORTED spent the bigger part of 2010 and 2011 writing the successor to Coronary Reconstruction and here comes ‘Global Flatline’. The result of two intense years of songwriting and dedication. Produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen studios in Denmark, ‘Global Flatline’ is an organic wall of death metal that will leave none alive.

Long known as the leaders of gore, ABORTED is back and have begun work on a brand new album that will be revealed later this year via Century Media Records.

Vocalist Sven De Caluwe checked in with this update:


‘We got to Ribe at Hansen studios this last monday and Ken Bedene nailed down 15 tracks in no more than 4 days in the most meticulous precision. Everything is sounding massive so far and we can’t wait to unveil more of GLOBAL FLATLINE as the process continues. Guitars and Bass are up next, and I can guarantee you, this is going to be the most intense and crushing record the band has released.


Stay tuned for more Carnage!!!!’

Belgian death metal veterans ABORTED will begin recording its seventh full length record to date from June onwards at the infamous Hansen Studios with producer Jacob Hansen (Invocator, Hatesphere, Volbeat). The band will be tracking over 15 tracks of the most brutal and intense material they have written to date. The sonic onslaught – baptized as “Global Flatline” – will contain 12 tracks with additional bonus material featured on limited editions.


The artwork for “Global Flatline” will once again be handled by Justin Osbourne who previously worked with the band on its 2010 EP “Coronary Reconstruction” as well. Since 2011 marks the ten year anniversary of ABORTED’s “Engineering The Dead” record, the band decided to re-record two tracks of the album as part of the bonus material for “Global Flatline”. You can vote for your favorite “Engineering The Dead” songs on the band’s Facebook Page:

Vocalist, founder and gurgloroth Sven de Caluwé comments:

“We are thrilled to be finally recording “Global Flatline” and have the material out there. It is exciting in many ways, one being that this might be one of the most important records in ABORTED’s career. We really took our time in composing the most heavy and uncompromising material the band has written to date. Some of the material is faster than ever, some of the material is slower than ever, some old school and some new school, inspired by all eras of ABORTED, yet still sounding unique on its own. Writing this record definitely took us back to the roots of why we started playing this kind of music in the first place, the passion and adrenaline you get from playing extreme metal.


Obviously it just isn’t a carbon copy of “Goremageddon” or “Engineering The Dead” or anything: there are plenty of new elements as well since we never believe in writing the same record. Those who checked out “Coronary Reconstruction” have had a small taste of what’s to come and we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed with “Global Flatline”!


We are also very excited to be working again with Jacob Hansen, the man who produced “Goremageddon” and “The Haematobic” EP and it was always a pleasure to work with him then, so this should be a blast.”
