The Archaic Abattoir (Olympic Records)

By: Mike SOS

Aborted is a technically crushing metal troupe hailing from Belgium that combine the wares of Swedish and death metal in a very refreshing fashion. On THE ARCHAIC ABATTOIR, tracks like "Threading on Vermillion Deception" showcase the quintet's acumen to grind out tightly woven yet punishing death metal, while managing to throw some Carcass-era metal dexterity on tracks like "The Inertia" for some special seasoning. These guys display some kick-ass hooks, too, as songs like "A Cold Logistic Slaughter" and the manically paced "Hecatomb" dually blow your ears out while overcoming you with maddeningly powerful grooves. Armed with a mighty low end assault and the kind of contained insanity that bands like The Haunted, Entombed, and Cannibal Corpse wield, this 10-track metal extravaganza is a must have for every extreme metal fan.
