Aborted - Engineering The Dead
Rrrröarrr! This is jumping at your throat! Grinding Death Metal with a gargling zombie on the microphone, that is ABORTED! The Gore-Kings hail from Belgium and despite all their speed have far more structure in their songs than the gros of the super-brutal fraction.

Their songs don't just chug along on the one-, two-minute-pace. There's a lot going on here. What you'll get in great riffs, tempo-changes and incredible double-bass-attacks, blastbeats and SLAYER-like runs is unique. I don't really want to use the expression "technical", but ABORTED play on a very high level. No song is just straight and relentless thundering! You also can hear a slight Thrash-touch. Add to that that the production is really fat!

I don't want to say anything about the truly perverse lyrics, if they really are serious with these ground-meat-fantasies then they should not be allowed to still walk freely. A sick kind of entertainment! But they will really get somewhere with this great album! It grooves, thunders and I can even listen to the whole album in one piece without vomiting!

Even though many will categorise ABORTED as Grindcore there still are enough mighty mid-tempo-parts! Brilliant!
