'Aborted' is getting ready to serve us the new album "Retrogore" in April. The Belgians go all the way with this brutal death metal/grind core mix. They have come up with a true masterpiece after the fantastic predecessor "The Necrotic Manifesto" in 2014. The brilliant cover was created by Christopher Lovell.

Aborted - Retrogore

Retrogore truly is an album of "bests" for Aborted. It's the best produced record the band has ever put out (working with Kristian Kohlmannslehner was a great decision) featuring some of the best songs the band has ever written, capped by the absolute best performances ever heard on an Aborted record. Guitarists Mendel bij de Leij and Ian Jekelis are one hell of a duo and churn out killer riff after riff all the way throughm, not to mention skin-searing solos. Bassist JB van der Wal holds down the low-end with an equally impressive performance, but the real highlight of Retrogore (besides Svencho, of course) is skinsman Ken Bedene. This album will single-handedly be his claim to fame for being one of the most insanely technical and precise death metal drummers on the entire scene, and his totally inhuman performance adds a great shock factor that keeps the listener on their toes. Last but certainly not least, Svencho, as always, gives a terrifyingly great performance behind the mic, and furthers his claim to being the best and most recognizable death metal vocalist around.

Speaking of vocals, it's impossible to talk about Retrogore without mentioning the killer guest spots the band managed to get. Julien Truchan of Benighted, Jason Keyser of Origin, David Davidson of Revocation and Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation all lend their shredded pipes to Retrogore, and none of their spots feel forced in any way. In fact, the songs on which each of them appear feel like they were written with their specific vocal presence in mind, especially in the case of the latter two. Travis Ryan fits in perfectly with the blackened deathgrind and stuttering grooves of "Divine Impediment," and the twisted, off-kilter riffing of "Coven of Ignorance" sounds like a Revocation song as written by Aborted, making David Davidson's tormented shriek the liver to this song's chianti.
