Belgian death metal lunatics ABORTED have just wrapped up all work on the band’s upcoming seventh studio album ”Global Flatline”. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by the infamous Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Pestilence, Hatesphere…) at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark this summer.
The album will contain 12 tracks for the regular jewel case edition and 14 tracks on the limited edition digipack, both to be released on Century Media Records in January 2012. Artwork has once again been handled by the gruesome Justin Osbourn from Slasher Design and contains some of the most horrid, putrid and disgusting art the band has displayed to date, perfectly visualizing the album’s title and lyrical concept.
Century Media will release a digital single of the title track “Global Flatline” on October 15th, 2011!
Track-listing for “Global Flatline”:
03.The Origin Of Disease
06.Of Scabs And Boils
07.Vermicular, Obscene, Obese
09.From A Tepid Whiff
10.The Kallinger Theory
11.Our Father, Who Art Of Feces
Furthermore, “Global Flatline” features several guest vocalists: Trevor Strnad from The Black Dahlia Murder, Julien Truchan of Benighted, Jason Netherton of Misery Index and Keiijo Niinima from Rotten Sound, here’s what they say about being part of this release:
“When I got the track for the guest vocals, we loaded the files up and immediately our ears melted! A face-ripping, next-level entry for a new decade of death metal, it was a sheer pleasure to contribute some screams, and I am completely stoked to hear the entire album as soon as it drops!”
‘It’s a pleasure to offer my vocals to Sven and the guys… The new material is fucking sick and I’m glad they would let me be a small part of it. Cheers to the masters of gore, ABORTED!’
“I’m so honored to be a part of Aborted’s new baby, so far what I heard sounds absolutely devastating, sick and furious. Their best album for sure!”
A video for the track “Origin Of Disease” has been shot in the UK this summer with director Phil Berridge (Cerebral Bore, etc).
After playing such renowned festivals as Party San Open Air, Summer Breeze etc. this summer, ABORTED will be touring Europe this November/December with Decapitated, Decrepit Birth, Cyanide Serenity, Archspire to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the band’s classic “Engineering The Dead” album. Don’t miss out on your dose of extreme death metal!
