Originally founded in 1995 by vocalist Sven Sven de Caluwé this band have had a good fair share of album releases with this being their seventh studio album in their music history and after a massive line-up change since the bands previous album release, it is good to hear the band are still back on form.
These guys are still at the top when it comes to the Death Metal/Grindcore genre, with the members spending most of 2010/2011 writing this album it is definitely worth the wait, but I do feel the band have calmed down a lot and lack some of their originality of their older albums, but I can’t deny this is a great album and still has a fast, intense sound and great sound quality with the album having been produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Denmark.
There is a great feel of the bands ferocity, brutality as well but just as much as they used to in the past in my opinion, but the band shows a great balance between their technical elements and still having the old school effect. There is some great artwork in the album too, done by Justin Osbourn from Slasher Design which expresses the bands sound really well. The album also features several guest vocalists: Trevor Strnad [The Black Dahlia Murder], Julien Truchan [Benighted], Hason Netherton [Misery Index] and Keiijo Niinima [Rotten Sound] making this a pretty brutal album!
This is a great album for metallers who love their metal fast and aggressive but I feel some older Aborted fans won’t be as impressed.
