Aborted: new album announced, cover artwork revealed
We all get a little mad sometimes...
Belgium's gore-mongers ABORTED have just vomited forth the cover artwork for their upcoming full-length album "Retrogore". Have a look at the pure horror and keep in mind... that guy in the mirror could easily be you!!!!
The highly detailed artwork was masterfully crafted by Christopher Lovell. To check out more of his incredible work, please visit his website at christopherlovell.com.
"Retrogore" will mark ABORTED's ninth studio album and will see a worldwide release in April of 2016 through Century Media Records. After delivering two seriously drenched and critically acclaimed albums in the form of "Global Flatline" (2012) and "The Necrotic Manifesto" (2014), ABORTED have returned to not only deliver another album jam-packed with ferociously ripping brutal death metal but also surpass all expectations with what could be considered their most mature and diverse album to date.
Don't fear though, the berserker drums of Ken, the virtuoso guitar skills of Mendel and his new partner Ian, JB's jackhammer bass as well as the possessed growls, shrieks and squeals of commander-in-chief Caluwé are all still prevalent, but this time, ABORTED have added a good portion of epically-crushing atmosphere throughout the twelve tracks found within "Retrogore". Who dares wins! A first glimpse into the new material will be launched soon, so stay tuned!.
Need more gore? Recently ABORTED released a 5-track EP entitled "Termination Redux" to celebrate the bands 20th year of existence as well as to offer fans a foretaste of what to expect on "Retrogore". If you have yet to grab your copy, you better do so soon...
