Aborted Are Bringing “Infinite Terror” to Nuclear Blast Records, Will Release a New Single Oct. 19
The band revealed its label change just as it was gearing up for its upcoming North American tour with Lorna Shore. To celebrate both occurrences, the band announced that it will be unleashing a new single titled “Infinite Terror” later this month.
Vocalist Sven de Caluwé said the band’s decision to switch from Century Media to Nuclear Blast stemmed largely from wanting to switch things up “after a very long and solid partnership.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to announce our signing to Nuclear Blast — one of the premier labels for extreme music with tons of label mates we love. We are very excited to see where this mad caravan leads to next! After a very long and solid partnership with Century Media, it was time for us to try something new.
To celebrate our signing with Nuclear Blast and the upcoming monster of a tour with our friends Lorna Shore, Ingested and more, we decided to unleash a new single. “Infinite Terror” will obliterate all your senses on October 19. The song is inspired by Event Horizon and marks the debut of new guitarist Dan Konradsson (Ophidian I, Une Misère). Expect something dark, imposing, and HEAVY as fuck!”
You may have missed the other announcement within de Caluwé’s statement, but Dan Konradsson (Ophidian I) is making his studio debut as a member of Aborted with the release of “Infinite Terror.”
With the band’s signing to Nuclear Blast, Jaap Wagemaker, A&R Nuclear Blast Europe, said the band’s addition to the label’s roster was a huge win for them.
“Nuclear Blast is very excited to announce the signing of brutal death metal maniacs Aborted.
“Aborted is one of the pioneers of the genre. Originally founded in Belgium, they have come a long way from the death/grind underground to creating a very successful, unique brand of horror-themed, cinematic extreme metal that’s highly compatible with today’s tech death and deathcore scenes. Aborted have influenced a lot of bands worldwide, and for many bands being invited to go on tour with Aborted meant the start of a successful career. Aborted worked on their status even more by releasing classics such as The Necrotic Manifesto and Retrogore which somehow managed to surpass that album and showcased what the band is capable of: lifting death metal to a higher level of intensity, atmosphere and brutality.
“Nuclear Blast and Aborted are looking forward to keep pushing the boundaries of high class brutal death metal together in the future!”
With the and’s first new single “Infinite Terror” due out just days before the band goes out on tour, you can ensure you get some time to learn the words and get acclimated with the band’s new stuff by presaving it today.
