Biography

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 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! ^_^

    Sounds like Benighted, but Benighted is way better than them.

    Necrotic Manifesto has more memorable songs for me than Global Flatline. [3]

    The Necrotic Manifesto is my favorite death metal release of the year so far, so damn enjoyable.

    Can't stop listening to the new album, especially after I've heard the songs live.

    While I do enjoy The Necrotic Manifesto a lot, I think it's not quite up to par with, say, Global Flatline or Goremageddon. Just doesn't hold my attention as well. Though I will say this: Cenobites and Excremental Veracity are amongst the best songs they've written and Ken Bedene's drumming is absolutely fantastic, maybe even the best in Aborted's history.

    @MrSweetness Sure, but this is a matter of opinion. Necrotic Manifesto has more memorable songs for me than Global Flatline. And secondly, i'm a big fan of crazy drumming which is better on NM.
