Just in time for the kick-off of their nearly completely sold-out tour with Lorna Shore, cinematic extreme metal masters ABORTED have released ‘Infinite Terror’, their first single in partnership with Nuclear Blast Records. The new track is a storm of thundering blastbeats, bone-shaking growls and razor sharp riffs.
Listen to ‘Infinite Terror’ here:
ABORTED have also delivered a terrifying new music video for ‘Infinite Terror’ in association with Grupa13. As the band perform within the confines of an abandoned asylum, a young woman is tormented by a haunting presence, as the lines between sanity insanity are continuously being blurred (much like their auricular assault).
Are you brave enough to face the darkness within yourself? Watch the new video for ‘Infinite Terror’ here:

With their horror-themed, cinematic extreme metal, ABORTED have mastered a dark craft that’s tough to compete with. The Belgian band has been dominating the world of death metal since vocalist Sven de Caluwé formed the band 26 years ago. As the lone original member, he’s directed the band like a demented conductor.
ABORTED are shapeshifters, evolving from blazing deathgrind to groovier fare before settling into a technical approach on death metal.
Their ability to compose and perform an uncompromising mix of death metal and grindcore, complemented with provocative artwork and merchandise designs, has allowed ABORTED tobecome an essential pioneer of the extreme metal scene over the course of their career, that has seen them release 11 successful full-length albums since the mid-Nineties.
Despite the seemingly sinister image that’s portrayed by the bands wildly heavy, gore-fueled music, ABORTED have actively supported charity campaigns throughout their career. They’ve donated parts of their merchandise income to “National Alliance To End Homelessness”, teamed up with other bands to launch a shirt to benefit the Ukrainian war refugees and have also been a long term member of “Metalheads Against Racism”.
With their latest album ManiaCult, ABORTED entered the German charts at #33 and US Current Hard Music Albums at #7, while Retrogore charted at #4 of ‘Top New Artists’ on the Billboard Charts and TerrorVision entered the US Billboard Charts at #4 (Heatseeker) and #9 (Current Hard Music). After releasing music and playing worldwide tours for almost 30 years, they still push musical boundaries and managed to endlessly re-invent themselves.
