ABORTED's new album, "TerrorVision", will be released on September 21 via Century Media Records. The artwork was created by Pär Olofsson (EXODUS, IMMOLATION, IMMORTAL).
The official lyric video for the "TerrorVision" title track can be seen below.
Comments ABORTED frontman Sven De Caluwé: "This song is the title track of the record first off and has Seth Siro Anton from SEPTICFLESH as guest vocalist. Basically, we chose it as a single because it has the dark, dirty vicious atmosphere the album has — it's fast but also has hooks and a heavy part. Lyrically, it captures the whole concept of the album, which is let's say looking at the media these days as if it were an ancient 'evil' entity in an '80s horror film that is manipulating the world as puppets.
"The album and song talk about a lot of things that have been happening in the last couple of years where the public opinion is clearly being molded and manipulated. There have been studies in communication showing that 55% of communication is non-verbal impact, 38% is verbal communication and the actual message is only important for about 7% of it. I know retarded figures that don't mean much by themselves, if not telling us that people don't give a fuck about what you're selling, as long as you package it right and the media/politicians know this all too well. The rise of ISIS has a lot to thank to the media as well, bigotry, racism all tools used by media to remove the eye on the actual problems for the human race as a whole and our planet.
"It’s not so death metal in itself, but it’s all packaged in our depraved little ABORTED sauce of dark humor and gross thesaurus bullshit language while containing a pretty strong message! Enjoy!”
With "The Necrotic Manifesto" and ABORTED's last album, "Retrogore", already showcasing what the band is capable of, "TerrorVision" lifts death metal to a higher level of intensity, atmosphere and brutality. Produced by Kristian "Kohle" Kohlmannslehner at Kohlekeller Studios, "TerrorVision" is not just a new chunk of high-class brutal death metal, it's a piece of art pushing the boundaries of the entire genre by combining over-the-top musicianship with skilled songwriting, a clear yet organic production and inexorable brutality that has no equals.
"TerrorVision" will be available in the following formats:
* Standard CD jewelcase
* Gatefold LP+CD
* Limited box set (with digipak CD, bonus CD with the tracks of the "Bathos" EP, black belt with metal belt buckle, sticker set and button set)
