Stream Aborted’s “Gloom”-y New Song

0

It’s Friday, and I can think of no better preamble to your weekend than “Gloom and the Art of Tribulation,” the totally kick-ass new song from Belgium’s Aborted. Opening with a manipulated sample from Rob Zombie’s 2007 version of Halloween, the track then launches quickly becomes by turns pummeling, dizzying, and concussive, like being thrown down a flight of steel stairs. But in true Aborted fashion, it also never loses its sense of cathartic fun; for us weirdos who absolutely delight in brutal death metal, it’s a total blast. I give it 5/5. No constructive criticism to offer here.

Turn the volume WAY the fuck up and blast “Gloom and the Art of Tribulation” below. It will appear on Aborted’s new EP, La Granda Mascarade, which comes out April 17 via Century Media.
