I have to admit that when I see a band with a name that is practically unreadable, violent artwork and so called shocking song titles, I just look, laugh and move on. ABORTED would be my same reaction, but since I am a writer and the CD is on my desk, I thought of giving it a whirl. I wasn't surprised at all by the vokills being sung like he had marbles in his mouth. The musicianship is tight, but ultra fast and the lyrics are in the vein of CANNIBAL CORPSE, IMPALED, CARCASS and all that is gross. However, something caught my ear and that was the really good guitar work. Yeah, it sounds sloppy many a time when they are hammering out a tune with whirling blast beats and dizzying guitar riffs, but during the breaks, you can hear some killer melodies thrown in there.
"The Saw & The Carnage Done" will show some sweet riffs being played during the intro of the song for about 30 seconds give or take. Many of you might think that the smooth riffs might not belong in there, but they actually add a touch of class and sort of separate them from the rest of the cookie monster blast beat bands.
There is an enhance track for "Meticulous Inagination" which is directed well. You get to see some cool blood scenes toward the end. Don't expect to see this on MTV or MTV2 anytime soon. Not my cup of tea, but the guitar work made it worth the listen. (Online October 24, 2003)
