Belgian death metallers Aborted are set to release their eighth album next month, titled The Necrotic Manifesto. Ahead of this they have released the titled track as the first song from the album.
From the band’s facebook page:
The Necrotic Manifesto, with Danish producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, MERCENARY), will be released on April 28th in Europe and on April 29th in North America via Century Media Records.
Front-man Sven de Caluwé comments: “I can’t believe we did it to be honest. We had a little over 3 months from start to master on this record– everyone really gave 300% on this record, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Jacob once again, who really pulled the best out of all our asses. I can say in all honesty that ‘The Necrotic Manifesto’ is without a doubt the strongest record ABORTED has done thus far and could not be more proud of everyone involved in the project. It is the most brutal, extreme and technical record of the band without losing sight of groove and catchiness, which are all vital elements of this band. We cannot wait to get out there and start playing some new material in front of people and get some feedback on what we did in these intense months. Besides this I am very thrilled to have some of my favorite vocalists on this record as guests. Both Phlegethon (WORMED) and Vincent Bennett(THE ACACIA STRAIN) brought their own brand of burp to the table and really complemented the songs they are on! The artwork has been done by Par Olofsson (PATHOLOGY, IMMOLATION, IMMORTAL).”

In support of The Necrotic Manifesto, ABORTED will tour North America together with KATAKLYSM in March/April 2014. The band will then return to Europe in May for a handful of release shows before heading into the festival season.
The new track is very good, superbly brutal, with crushing blasting drumming, heavy riffage, great leads and a crunchy bass tone, while Sven de Caluwé, the only remaining founding member delivers some really harsh gutterals. It’s a sign of good things for the new album, and considering their revolving door of musicians coming in and out of the band, it’s something of a surprise that they can remain this good.
