My most anticipated album release of this year – Aborted’s “TerrorVision” (2018) is one of the greatest technical displays of metal in recent history. I was hoping for this album to be a sort of sequel, or run on, from their 2016 release “Retrogore” and boy was I not disappointed.

Starting off with how any Aborted album kicks off – with a sample and synthesizers creating that horrific and evil atmosphere in a sinister way before the band launches headfirst into the depths of their first track “TerrorVision” which sports non-stop blast beats in the drums, the signature riffing from Ian and Mendel which sees them using the entire neck of their guitars, and a thundering bass tone. The solos in this album are all insanely technical and perfectly crafted trade-off perfectly with the skull crushing riffing. “Leave every hope” (the translation of the opening track) is the perfect way to describe the lyrical journey that you’ve taken on. Sven’s writing is as on point as ever. Exploring the typical themes of humanity, violence, and gore, Sven dives a lot deeper in terms of style, imagery, and diction. In “Retrogore” (2016), the samples they used helped a lot in terms of creating a storyline and imagery in the songs, and although I was a bit disappointed at first with the lack of any samples in this album – Sven makes up for it through the countless lyrics that are simply beyond incredible.

I found the guitars to have a much more thrash-inspired style, although at a much faster tempo, and more significant in songs like “Vaspertine Decay.” The riffs are put together so well and they lead into each other perfectly and actually compliment the vocals surprisingly well. The intros to all of the songs are just beyond describing. Like how the samples were a highlight for me in “Retrogore” the intros in “TerrorVision” are one of the best aspects of this album. Each song transcends through multiple genres ranging from the more noticeable – thrash, brutal death, deathgrind, and old school death metal to slight hints of melodeath – (Vaspertine Decay, Visceral Despondency & Farewell to the Flesh).
It’s hard to explain, but I think it stood out a lot more in this album where Sven’s vocals almost seem to trade off from each other like there are two vocalists. Specifically through his variation in vocal styles. I mean he’s got the pipes for two people anyway.
As is the case with most of the death metal albums we review on here, the second half of this album is extremely strong. Much like Cattle Decapitation, Aborted explores some unique styles and techniques in songs such as “Deep Red” (which is easily one of my favourites of the album) and “The Final Absolution”

All in all, right from the release of the first single – this album was set out to be a testament to Aborted’s legacy as a band at the forefront of the death metal scene, and it stands strong as one of the best metal albums of the year.
