Belgian death metal veterans Aborted will begin recording their seventh full-length record to date from June onwards at the infamous Hansen Studios with producer Jacob Hansen (Invocator, Hatesphere, Volbeat).

The band will be tracking over 15 tracks of the most brutal and intense material they have written to date. The sonic onslaught - baptized as Global Flatline - will contain 12 tracks with additional bonus material featured on limited editions.

The artwork for Global Flatline will once again be handled by Justin Osbourne who previously worked with the band on its 2010 EP Coronary Reconstruction as well. Since 2011 marks the ten year anniversary of Aborted's Engineering The Dead record, the band decided to re-record two tracks of the album as part of the bonus material for Global Flatline. You can vote for your favorite Engineering the Dead songs on the band's Facebook Page.

Vocalist, founder and gurgloroth Sven de Caluwé comments: "We are thrilled to be finally recording Global Flatline and have the material out there. It is exciting in many ways, one being that this might be one of the most important records Aborted's career. We really took our time in composing the most heavy and uncompromising material the band has written to date. Some of the material is faster than ever, some of the material is slower than ever, some old school and some new school, inspired by all eras of Aborted, yet still sounding unique on its own.
Writing this record definitely took us back to the roots of why we started playing this kind of music in the first place, the passion and adrenaline you get from playing extreme metal.

Obviously it just isn't a carbon copy of Goremageddon or Engineering The Dead or anything: there are plenty of new elements as well since we never believe in writing the same record. Those who checked out Coronary Reconstruction have had a small taste of what's to come and we can guarantee you you won't be disappointed with Global Flatline! We are also very excited to be working again with Jacob Hansen, the man produced Goremageddon and The Haematobic EP and it was always a pleasure to work with him then, so this should be a blast."

I will be looking forward to this, though Goremageddon was their best album in my opinion. Would be awesome if they got that great Goremageddon guitar sounds again!

Engineering the Dead is easily my favorite Aborted album, but two good songs isn't going to save a full-length version of Coronary Reconstruction. Their recent direction is anything but extreme, and I'm hoping they aren't bullshitting everyone (including themselves) with regards to their "back to the roots" statement.
