The official lyric video for the song "Vermicular, Obscene, Obese" from Belgian death metalers ABORTED can be seen below.
Commented the band's vocalist, Sven "Svencho" de Caluwé: "Eating carbs is bad, mmmkay? So yeah, we have this new lyric video up for 'Vermicular, Obscene, Obese'... which isn't really about carbs, unless you count corpses as carbs, or grannies, or trannies, or something... It's also absolutely not about mass consumerism and other social points of view, since we are as brain dead as our music, so go check out the funky stuff from the funky bunch, and enjoy!"
"Vermicular, Obscene, Obese" comes off ABORTED's seventh studio album, "Global Flatline", which sold around 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release.
