Belgian death metalers ABORTED will celebrate the tenth anniversary of their 2003 CD, “Goremageddon: The Saw And The Carnage Done”, this spring by performing “the entire album front to back” at “a few exclusive shows” in April. The band states: “We will have several special guests on the limited shows (six dates throughout Europe). First announced guest is BENIGHTED, more information on the shows and guests will be revealed as time goes by! The art for this re-imagining has been done by our good friend Grindesign and he did a killer job, if I may say so!”
ABORTED‘s seventh studio album, “Global Flatline”, sold around 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 27 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Global Flatline” was released on January 24, 2012 (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded, mixed, and mastered by the Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, PESTILENCE, HATESPHERE) at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark. The artwork was once again created by Justin Osbourn from Slasher Design.
“Global Flatline” features several guest vocalists, such as Trevor Strnad (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER), Julien Truchan (BENIGHTED), Jason Netherton (MISERY INDEX), and Keiijo Niinima (ROTTEN SOUND).
