Incessant brutality.

They have gotten so much better with time and with each release they put out they only reinfoce their place in death metal. Definitely picking this one up. SO GOOD. The brutality and heaviness never ceases with them. Which is a good thing, of course.

Two Aborted releases in one year!
This year is going too well so far .-.

Arguably their best work!?

what @hamwhipper fails to realize is the fact that this band has been around for about 20(+-) years now and have been slaying in the underground with albums like this since their beginnings. Fine examples of early work: Engineering the Dead-the holocaust incarnate, Goremagedon-charted carnal effigy, Slaughter & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture-avenious. Educate yourself before you speak.
Personal highlights for this album: retrogore, bit by bit, termination redux(origin: E.P.), in avernus. Vocal delivery chaotic, killer as always, and very interesting rhythms and execution. Music filled with diverse tempos and more melodic passages in certain parts but razor cords with groove that accentuate that classic deathmetal sound. P.S. -someone translate me whats going on in les miserables..sounds deep..lol.

About Aborted

With a name like Aborted, it doesn't take a genius to file the band into the realm of grindcore, but since being formed in 1995 by vocalist Sven de Caluwé (aka Gurgloroth Sven), these Belgians have broken through stylistic limitations to also meddle in straightforward death metal and other metallic forms. So many musicians have moved through Aborted's ranks, however, that quorum enough for a first demo (the highly praised The Necrotorous Chronicles) was only achieved in 1998, after which a pair of uneven, self-exploratory albums (1999's The Purity of Perversion, 2001's Engineering the Dead) were interspersed with various split EPs recorded with other budding artists. Come 2003's Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage Done, though, Aborted had grown into the role of key contributors to the death-grind genres and, after issuing the Haematobic EP the following year, delivered what arguably represents their finest hour, 2005's The Archaic Abattoir album. Here, their lineup had stabilized (for the moment anyway) into guitarists Bart Vergaert and Tace de Cloedt, bassist Frederic Vanmassenhove, drummer Gilles Dellecroix, and the ever-present Caluwé. Arriving in 2007, Slaughter & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture saw Caluwé and company inking a deal with Century Media, where they would remain well into the next decade, releasing a string of punishing, blast furnace-forged albums and EPs, including Strychnine.213 (2008), Global Flatline (2012), Necrotic Manifesto (2014), and the Termination Redux EP. Aborted issued the chart-topping Retrogore, their ninth studio album, in 2016. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
