There are many ways to die but even more to kill as sonic mass murderers ABORTED elaborately explain since their forming back in 1995 and once again explicitly underline on their newest, eighth studio album The Necrotic Manifesto. Founding member and vocalist Sven "Svencho" de Caluwé reveals that conceptually the album is our own take on the sordid tales of the Necronomicon, the book of the dead, of corpse drowned in a sauce of gore and fun covered with a good old 80s slasher vibe. This idea was congenially transformed into excellent artwork by Par Olofsson, who already created stunning visuals for acts like The Faceless, Exodus, Immolation, Pathology, Immortal and more.
Delicious gory fun aside, musically ABORTED mean dead serious death metal business since day one, delivering their aural blows with a maximum of versatility and hard-hitting brutality successfully melting the technical US school of Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse with the melodic incisions of European flavor obviously inspired by recently returned UK gods Carcass or even Entombed. ABORTED hack, slash, cut, grind, blast, groove, crush, rip, tear, destroy, kill in every way humanely possible and this multi-faceted approach has earned them a dedicated fanbase over the past years.
The Necrotic Manifesto also produced by Jacob Hansen (who already worked with the band e.g. on 2003s Goremageddon and 2011s Global Flatline) makes no exception and continues in the tradition of its much acclaimed predecessor guaranteeing you maximum gore metal pleasure. Intensity check, brutality check, technicality check, inhuman savage vocals check, keyboards nope, bittersweet melodies hell no, folk elements get outta here?!?! While remaining true to themselves,
ABORTED still have a couple of macabre surprises in store spicing their renowned and respected killing spree with some bonus-carnage: First up, are guest vocalists Vincent Benett (The Acacia Strain) on Your Entitlement Means Nothing and Phlegeton (Wormed) on Excremental Veracity, sweet as rot cover versions of the incredible Funeral Inception (Suffocation) and Arise (Sepultura) as well as an entire card came (!) invented and designed by the band accompanying the albums limited edition as Svencho details: The card game starts off with my humble self finding the Necrotic Manifesto at a truck stop while taking a dump on tour, reading out passages and unleashing hell on earth. Through the card game players take on the role of a band member or crew member and have to defeat the legions of hell with their maniacal leader: the doctor! All presented with a good dose of dark humor, horror and tons of internal jokes which will get players to know the members of the band a bit better and more personal.
The Kennedy Veil
In 2009 the world bore witness to a whole new brutality, sure to brace the metal scene for years to come. Ascending from the depths of the Northern California Valley, The Kennedy Veil unleashed upon the scene their own fanatical perspective of American Death Metal.
The Kennedy Veil started as a quartet composed of Casey Childers (ex-Forktung), Gabe Seeber (Alterbeast, Decrepit Birth, ex-Wretched Dawn), Cody Walker(ex-Skribble) and Shawn Peterson. The ensemble recorded their first album The Sentence of Their Conqueror with engineer Josh Williams at Metal Works studios and released a compilation of 8 visceral tracks which quickly grabbed the attention of the west coast. With the release of this album, The Kennedy Veil played shows relentlessly with legendary acts such as Cephalic Carnage, Exhumed, Cattle Decapitation, Macabre, Decrepit Birth, Origin, Divine Heresy and Abysmal Dawn.
