Format: Audio CD
Aborted, for those not familiar, are a death metal band from the historic West Flanders region and Strychnine .213 is their sixth full length album since their formation in 1995. This album has been described as moving them in a more deathcore direction, away from their usual more grindcore sound. While this may be partly true, their sound still incorporates a far fuller death/grind assault than this more modern subgenre of death metal. And when the album is this tightly played and well produced such labels become increasingly irrelevant. Aborted still have a lot more in common with luminaries like Carcass/Napalm Death than the likes of Suicide Silence or Oceano.

As stated the first thing one notices about this album is the pristine top/notch production job. Every riff, snare, growl and screech is immaculately produced and I suppose this is what sets quality contemporary death metal apart from those albums released in the early 90's heyday for example. So what makes this album stand out from the myriad of other death metal releases over the last few years? Firstly, the dual vocal attack from main man and lead vocalist Sven de Caluwe and guitarist Sebastian Tuvi adds a ferocity and debt to the songs which many death metal acts lack. Secondly, there is some sublime lead riff work which fills some tracks with a sense of melody that is very memorable and highlights the fact that the musicians are ultimately in control of their instruments. Finally, the double bass drum work of Dan Wilding powers along at a ferocious pace on some tracks but slows down with great technical skill in other places.

The album finishes with a brilliant version of Pantera's `Slaughtered' that is so powerful I have difficulty listening to the original any more!

5.0 out of 5 stars strike the pose... 27 May 2009
By J. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Aborted is like a fine wine... get better with age. this album is brutal and straight to the point. the intro is great and preps u for the rest to come. Sven barks like a madman, his performance on this cd really comes across to me the way he is live if you've seen them. Nice soundbite on "murmur" by none other than charles manson, and is a stand out track for me. They really capitalize on the duel melodies of the guitarist, putting just the right touch of melody in the songs. Then the reason i got the import instead of us version... they cover "slaughtered" by the almighty PANTERA! and man it is sick! Not going to even explain, listen for youself.. its just another great release from 1 of the best extreme metal bands out there. *Best songs*- 135/ Murmur/ enterrment of an idol/ pestiferous subterfuge

I was not disappointed with this album. Aborted blows me away every time. I am looking forward to the Necrotic Manifesto.
