Highlights

Since their unholy inception in 1995, death metal miscreants ABORTED have been one of the pioneers of the genre and have annihilated friend and foe with relentless intensity and an uncompromising mix of flawless technicality and raw emotion. 

Having carved a niche for themselves in the extreme metal realm, the multi-national combo around Sven de Caluwé initially gained notoriety by offering up ruthlessly fast death-grind with groovy breakdowns on their early works (The Purity of Perversion, Goremageddon: The Saw And The Carnage Done). By meticulously crafting and introducing more technical elements on more recent releases such as TerrorVision, Retrogore and ManiaCult, ABORTED has consistently sharpened their lethal blend of furious death metal. Thereby firmly cementing their status as one of the most menacing and envelope-pushing metal acts of the 21st century.

For their twelfth studio album, set to attack the living on March 15th, the band teamed up with Nuclear Blast. With each of the ten new tracks, ABORTED dives deep into the vaults of VHS cassettes and stories that have been haunting us all for decades. Each song pays tribute to a horror cult classic and ranges from obligatory cuts such as ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ (to be found on 'Death Cult’) or ‘Halloween’ (‘The Shape Of Hate’) to the more recent ‘The Mist’ to be discovered on ‘Malevolent Haze’. True to themselves, it wouldn’t be an ABORTED reference without an odious homage to none other than shit daemon ‘The Golgothan’ (sadly defeated by Silent Bob through the use of deodorant, cheeky bastard!). There are plenty of familiar faces (and those who collect them), stories and easter eggs to be found on these ten ferocious, gut-wrenching death metal slashers.

If you’re going head to head with the most vile and infamous monsters in pop culture (all cleverly combined into one supervillain on the cover artwork created by Dan Goldsworthy), you might as well get some help from some of the best out there, right? Therefore, ABORTED invited the crème de la crème (sadly, they ran out of ice cream) of the music scene to the party, and on each track of the album you will find a different guest vocalist – ranging from Alex Erian (DESPISED ICON) to Johnny Ciardullo (CARCOSA / ANGELMAKER), Ben Duerr (SHADOW OF INTENT), Francesco Paoli (FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE) and many more.

With this deadly alliance, Vault of Horrors is an epic journey where listeners are thrust into a world of intense brutality, characterized by lightning-fast guitar riffs, intricate, pummeling drum patterns and monstrous vocals that leave no room for respite. For the first time since 2016’s Retrogore the band opted for a full production with audio extraordinaire and heavyweight producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Archspire, Khemmis).

So sit back, grab a snack, and crawl down into the Vault of Horrors, if you dare. As the final notes fade, one thing will be clear – with this new release, ABORTED have not only once again proven their dominance in the world of death metal but leaped to new heights.
