Aborted - Slaughtered & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture
Century Media Records
Even though the title of their latest album is long and unwieldy, Aborted's music is certainly not. The Belgian outfit is a lean, mean bonecrushing machine. Slaughter & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture will appeal to more than just grind fans.

The album is a relentless barrage of lightning fast blast beats and furious guitar riffs. The songs are a maniacal mix of grindcore and technical death metal. The band's technical skill and musicianship gets better and better with each new release. Although the music is extreme and brutal, Aborted also adds melody and some catchy riffs to make the songs very memorable.

In addition to the growls of vocalist Sven De Caluwe there are also a few guests on the album including former Carcass vocalist Jeff Walker and Jacob Bredahl from Hatesphere. Producer Tue Madsen (The Haunted) adds a little polish to Aborted's furious assault, and even though there is some repetition from song to song it is a strong extreme metal effort.
