Let me start off by saying that I have been a complete idiot over the past 13 years by NOT getting more heavily into Aborted. I stopped with their album ‘Engineering the Dead’ in 2001. I don’t really know why, other than I just thought I’d try out other bands in the metal scene then. Not a lot of them have held up over the years.
Under the recommendation of my best friend, I listened to Aborted’s newly released ‘Necrotic Manifesto’ last night. HOLY. FUCK. It’s like a horror and metal fan’s wet dream of an album. It is horror. It is gloom. But, the songs are oddly catchy in this truly messed-up way. Aborted are known for their incorporation of sinister horror film samples. They include ‘Hobo With a Shotgun’ and ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre II’ this time around, and all are perfectly matched up with the sound and feel of the album.
I HIGHLY recommend this album to any true metal fan out there, especially if you are a horror fiend as well. Listen to the title track from the YouTube channel for Century Media Records below or just buy the album at Amazon right here.
Hold on to your nuts and enjoy!
