Image of Aborted


Shoving a dirtied, well-placed syringe straight through the heart of expectation, ABORTED further remove themselves from the Carcass homage of old on their sixth release Strychnine.213 . While most bands are content releasing the same record every other year, this international collective prefers to strike a rare balance between maturity and experimentation, honoring a legacy of brutal death ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A top bit of Belgian blood-spattered Gore Metal 28 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
Aborted are a top class Death Metal band, despite the apparent geographical disadvantage of coming from Belgium, not a hotbed of extreme underground music by any stretch of the imagination. They’re not likely to win any prizes for originality, but then how many DM bands nowadays are truly original? Akercocke and Nile are both a bit different to most but after that, the bands are just influencing each other to try to make a new sound out of old ideas. This is not entirely a bad thing though; bands like Aborted still produce an enjoyable bloody noise. Obviously it owes a fair debt to Cannibal Corpse as does virtually any Gore Metal band, but it is by no means a xerox of them or any other individual band. Aborted are their own band, it’s just that they are made up of lots of little bits of other well known Death Metal bands. If you like your Metal reasonably brutal and blood-splattered though, give them a try, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re a fan of Re-Animator, so much the better, as these Belgians obviously are; not only do they sample the trailer for the original in its entirity, they also sample a big chunk from the sequel Bride Of Re-Animator. They are top horror films, but it does break up the flow a little too much for my liking. Still, in fairness, they fit the mood of the album pretty exactly. The new album Goremageddon virtually dispenses with them altogether though and is probably much the better for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fledgling Darkness 6 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
The birth of a great band! This album is fantastic for a first release, although in places the sound samples ramble (even though they’re all cool I think the entire trailer for Re-Animator was a little excessive). The sound quality is pretty good, their next album was a far better mix however. Despite these shortcomings I find this album totally enjoyable… It blew me out.

5.0 out of 5 stars herbert west was at the top of his class... 9 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
..and so the re-animator samples go! yes, this is one of the finest death metal albums ever released, aborted are an amazing band but this is their 'reign in blood'. faultles, well executed death metal that stands alongside 'necroticsm' 'altars of madness' testimony of the ancents' and 'clandestine'. a cult classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars After 'Purity Of Perversion' comes this.... 2 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sven churns through his sickening lyrics once again here with another blast of gore splattered death metal. A mere eight tracks lie rotting in the foul corruption that is this album, but each ones holds a little something more perverted than Albert Fish's list of things he couldn't possibly do. I'm not sure what it is that makes you want to destroy the innards of your ears with such extreme musical aggression, but I got that need to do it too. But after all the carnage is over, you feel somewhat disapointed with this installation from Aborted. Maybe it's just me, but that little spill of real human suffering that appeared on 'Purity Of Perversion' seems to have dripped away. If you haven't yet heard this band, I recommend you throw your cash in the direction of their more recent blood soaked output - Goremageddon. But what the hell, it's all from the same gore drenched pits that one day you'll be falling into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it 9 April 2013
By chuck deccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An older Aborted remastered. It does not, completely, sound like the Aborted of today, a little closer to Dying Fetus. But, it fills all the required necessities: Great sound quality. It kicks.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good Re-issue 7 Jan 2014
By Midway 47 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I didn't realize this was a re-issue and not a new album until I bought it but I'm not disappointed. It's death metal at it's best. I love the classic album Goremageddon and Engineering the Dead originally came out right before that and has a similar sound. If you are a fan of Goremageddon or Global Flatline, you will probably like this one. Their other CDs are good but they don't have the same rawness.
