Aborted: Retrogore

Album Review

Bloodthirsty Belgians divert from the gore

Promising “uncensored gory fun for all the family”, Aborted’s ninth album sees the Belgians at the very peak of their powers.

Packed full of pummelling death metal rippers and more hooks than their beloved Cenobites from Hellraiser, their 12-track opus is performed with almost machine-like precision. In a move that might surprise some, Retrograde is, in places, their most political offering to date, and they tackle the prickly topics of religion and corruption (Divine Impediment, Coven Of Ignorance).
