The production makes it sound like an ODSM record but this is something quite modern in terms of songwriting and the
way the songs utilize a riff salad approach. I would go as far to say that this has strong hardcore influence.
Drumming is the standout here.
Extremely Fucking Dead
We have a winner here. Draws its influence from both odsm and the more melodic euro stuff minus the cheese.
Songwriting is short, sharp and throws in some neat little tricks here and there to keep it all interesting.
Vol. II - Inside The Mind
jumpdafuqup with this nu sounding album.rAlbum is too bloated and lacks any standout songwriting to make it even slightly unique.rThe drumming will sometimes play with the idea of polys but never commits.rNot much else to say, just trendy as shit nu metal revival album.
Trance of Death
Neck of the Woods
An album with no sense of self.
The album starts with an Opeth influenced burner that shows some strong songwriting and interesting ideas. The next
track is something right out of the 2006 metalcore songwriting book, it even has string skipping and a solo that literally
sounds something Shadows Fall played back in the day.
The rest of the album seems to be the usual assortment of metalcore cliches with slightly better instrumentation than
Production works well here despite the awful vocals.
At this point, Aborted have settled into a recognizable style that although sometimes homogenous, brings a certain range
of technicality and songwriting that fans expect.
Vocals have always been a strong point with Aborted. Easily some of the best in the genre and underrated when compared
to a lot of bands that hide their vocals in murk or one-note delivery.
