Aborted announce new album and share single "Death Cult" feat Alex Erian (Despised Icon)

aborted

Belgian death metal outfit Aborted have released their new single "Death Cult" featuring Despised Icon vocalist Alex Erian. The single is taken from the band's upcoming new album, Vault of Horrors, which will be released on March 15th via Nuclear Blast Records

The album is inspired by horror films across many decades including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween and The Mist. The new album will also feature appearances from members of Cryptopsy, Shadow of Intent, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Signs of the Swarm and more. 

Pre-orders available here

Below is a statement from the band regarding the new album:

'With each of these 10 new tracks, Aborted dives deep into the vaults of VHS cassettes and stories that have been haunting us all for decades. Each song pays tribute to a horror cult classic and ranges from obligatory cuts such as 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (to be found on 'Death Cult') or 'Halloween' ('The Shape Of Hate') to the more recent 'The Mist' to be discovered on "Malevolent Haze'.

True to themselves, it wouldn't be an Aborted reference without an odious homage to none other than shit daemon 'The Golgothan' (sadly defeated by Silent Bob through the use of deodorant, cheeky bastard!).

"Vault of Horrors" is an epic journey where listeners are thrust into a world of intense brutality, characterized by lightning-fast guitar riffs, intricate, pummeling drum patterns and monstrous vocals that leave no room for respite.'

dont play dungeons and dragons folks, you'll end up spending your days making up gay ass song titles and obsessing about having lady hair.

Great news. More like this. Maybe now that this album is done, Dan can get back to working on the next Ophidian I album.

Going the Pain Of Truth route with guest vocals on every song cause the singer can't stand his own voice

Good. Gooooooooooood.

Very disappointing. Somebody please tell Sven to get back to the mid 2000s Aborted sound. These newer albums all sound like they were produced on his laptop.

I love this band and I love this concept, but come on guys. You're making your whole image around retro horror and you can't find any deeper cuts than Halloween Or TCM? 70's and 80's had some of the best horror movies ever made and yet you go the Spirit Halloween route.

Why have the drummer go through the process of recording drums in a nice studio if it's gonna just sound like an ekit?

anonymous 185 days ago

^ I've seen the dude play multiple times. He's practically an ekit himself. Straight metronome.

Aborted is great. Pretty cool they were able to get guest appearances on every song.
