Waregem, Belgium (1995 – present)

Aborted is a band that originates from Waregem, Belgium. However, they are now an international band composed with members from Belgium, The Netherlands, and the United States.

They were formed in 1995 by vocalist Sven De Caluwé, drummer Steven, bassist Koen and guitarist Niek. A second guitarist Christophe augmented the band in 1997 and later Steven would relinquish the drum stool to Frank.

They self-released a demo “The Necrotorous Chronicles” in 1998. The band then released their full length debut “The Purity Of Perversion” in 1999 from Uxicon Records. This quickly led to a split album with Christ Denied in 2000 released by Soulreaper Records.

The “Engineering The Dead” album emerged in 2001 on Listenable Records. After Frank left, the band incorporated session drummer Dirk Verbeuren (Scarve) to record the drums for their third release. Later in 2003, they released the album “Goremageddon: The Saw And The Carnage Done” as their second release with Listenable Records. The album included a cover version of Carcass’s Carnal Forge. Promotion for the album saw the band on tour in Europe with Immolation.

To coincide with European tour dates in April 2004 partnering Cannibal Corpse the band issued a special EP release “The Haematobic”. This EP comprised three new songs, a cover of Entombed’s Drowned plus studio and live video clips. Long term drummer Frank bowed out at this juncture; live dates seeing Dirk Verbeuren stepping back in as substitute.

    I hope Danny Tunker commits to Alkaloid. I'm not saying Aborted is holding him back. But he needs to be in Alkaloid to fully explore his talent as a brilliant guitarist.

    I sincerely hope Danny Tunker doesn't end up bailing on Aborted for Alkaloid. Alkaloid is a cool project. But Aborted is a lot more fun.

    Goremageddon is pretty good

    I've followed Aborted since Gormageddon, and I honestly think their latest 2 albums are the best of their entire catalog, which is pretty rare for a band to do so many albums deep into their career. The 2 albums before Global Flatline were pretty lackluster. Whatever happened in the 4 years to release that album, was for the better! Such good shit, memorable, heavy, grinding, semi-melodic, excellent vocals that do not keep to the monotone, indecipherable growl like most death metal vocalists.

    I fucking love those vocals this band has. Hell those vocals even sound kinda clean-ish, but they are brutal as fuck. This band really stands out, and their latest album is fucking killer!

    @nobledeath. Don't think so, mate. Yes, they sound very similar, but Benighted is not better than Aborted. And Aborted is not better than Benighter, too :D They are all awesome! ^_^
