Aborted is a Belgian death metal band with six rather inconsistent releases under their belt. Goremageddon would have to be my favorite, with Engineering the Dead being a close second. I find the newest album, Strychnine.213, to be a piece of shit, and I don't know how long Sven has been sportin his trendy metrohawk, but it's obvious they're selling out. Regardless, they still bring it live - I was brutalized both times when I saw them this year, and I still remain optimistic for the next album.
I bought an Aborted shirt for my girlfriend who not only isn't that big on metal, but is pro-life. I find it ironic.
Goremageddon is the only album I'll spin by them, however, I concur about their live performances. This year was my first chance to see them live, and because of their relatively weak releases after Gore, I assumed it was going to be a fairly uneventful opening act.
Mistaken I was. They played pretty much all the tracks off of Goremageddon and got a circle-pit up and rolling in no time. It was full on goregrind beauty, complete with multiple concert goers decked out in pseudo-blood-soaked doctor attire. A really great time.
