3.0 goodAnthracks | January 26th 12

Better than probably anything else they've ever done, but by no means an "exemplary exercise" in Brutal Death.

I'm really digging this cd right now. It's far superior to their last one.

4.0 excellent05McDonaldT | January 25th 12

An exemplary exercise in modern brutal death metal. Skull shattering precision is displayed abundantly

0.0 (enchanted) | January 4th 14

Following an extremely promising EP (Coronary Reconstruction), Aborted's new album really was expected to be something special. Sven Caluwe's vocals range from traditional brutal death grunts and vicious shrieks (he has a nasty habit of over-enunciating words when he uses these) as they have in the past, and he is always the dominant presence on the record, which is a good thing because more often than not the music here is extremely unremarkable. There's tons of catchy hooks here (oft accompanied by a slew of guest vocalists all of whom pretty much just blend into the background, and some groovy riffs as any decent deathgrind album should have. However, this album really isn't all that heavy, as the riffs really lack the crushing impact of many of the band's peers (see Benighted, Misery Index), the drums sound fake as hell and rarely deviate from mindless blast beats and the bass is rarely heard at all. The us of horror-movie samples, the non-cringeworthy lyrics and best of all the solos (which is something that few bands of this genre get right) elevate the album above a sea of mediocrity, but this could still have been a lot better.

3.5 greatbigbrownbeaver | June 2nd 13

Aborted's signature deathgrind sound is still infectiously heavy, but this album won't make any of the naysayers jump ship.

3.5 greatTheNotrap | July 12th 12

Despite some more predictable song structures and vocal dynamics, it remains an enjoyable and surprisingly catchy album.

4.0 excellentbigguytoo9 | February 2nd 12

Aborted clean up shop once again with another slab of Extreme Metal goodness

Bump

3.0 goodDrimys | January 26th 12

Fun listen, good activity but now I have hard time tell benighted and aborted apart

Bump

4.0 excellentCakeWithCream | January 21st 12

awesome mix of breakdowns, melody, brutality, high screams, gutturals, instruments and vocals
