Annihilation!!! Devastation!!! Destruction!!! This is what you get with Aborted´s third CD GOREMAGEDDON - THE SAW AND THE CARNAGE DONE. This five-piece hails from Belgium and it is really great to see such a great band rising from a rather passive Metal country. In some way this CD reminds me of Impaled´s MONDO MEDICALE for its catchiness, great production and total holocaust overdrive.
I remember when I got the CD in my mail. The cover simply blew me away. It is just sick, greatly accomplished and gives you a rather close call on the music: Gore Metal jejeje.
All songs are killers and when I say killers I mean it. You can’t recover from one and suddenly the next one is making your head swallow as you hit the wall in a chaotic and frenetic physical explosion.
"Meticulous Invagination" is the opener and man is it fresh sounding. Aborted together with the aforementioned Impaled and Exhumed´s latest ANATOMY IS DESTINY is like the new wave of Gore Metal. It is catchy, sick, fresh, clean sounding but heavy as fuck, simply great. Other personal favorites are "Charted Carnal Effigy" that reminds me a lot about Carcass NECROTICISM-era and what the heck, all of them. GOREMAGEDDON kills!!!
Jacob Hansen was in charge of the production and the Danish did a great job with this one. It is pretty thick (read sick) sounding and crystal clear at the same time.
I don´t know what else to say about this release other than it slays big time. It would be great to see Aborted and bands like Impaled and Exhumed get the recognition they deserve, which I think is beginning to happen.
Oh, I forgot to mention, the CD comes with the "Meticulous Invagination" video as a bonus. It is fun to watch but does not show anything that you haven’t seen or heard in the genre, but still kills. Stay Heavy!!!
