"The writing process of our new record is officially done. The music on the new album will be more weird, electro-industrial and psycho than anything we've done before. Eye-poppin'shit at its top.

"Hey fuckers! As we believe you know, this is a very important year for us: it's the anniversary of the first 20 years of Aborym. We would like to thank you all for following us, for supporting us, quite often to stand us, for buying or downloading our albums, for wearing our T-shirts, for having read, understood and interiorized our lyrics and, for all the time, you dedicated to us when you were writing us letters or e-mails to which we couldn't answer, or, simply, for having criticized us.
"And we want to thank you, especially, if some of you, through Aborym, have become open-minded, rebelled against the rules, the business and the system (musical and not musical one) and perhaps managed to make music in a free, instinctive and passionate way.
"We would like you all to be part of our history and the history of extreme music. We want you all in our next album, planned to be released through Agonia Records. We intend to realize a song about 5 minutes' long in which we want to insert anything you would like to send us: guitar or bass riff, samples, sentences, keyboards, groove, loops or short lyrics.
"Furthermore, we would like to realize a huge Aborym Fan Wall Poster, a enormous mosaic with all of your pictures (above), which will be sent for free at the moment it will be completed.
"This is your opportunity to be part of the history of Aborym. This is our chance to thank you all. We love ya all.

Italy's Aborym, which signed to Agonia Records earlier this year, is currently offering a free download of a remixed track online. Aborym had this to say:
"The Psychogrotesque VI 'Lovecraftian Remix' by Emiliano Natali (Fear No one studios) is available for free download here. Enjoy it fuckers!"
The track "Psychogrotesque VI" is taken off the band's latest album, "Psychogrotesque." You can check out Metalunderground.com's review of the album at this location.
Italian industrial-post-black metallers Aaborym have inked a worldwide deal with Agonia Records. Singer/bass player Fabban commented on the deal:
"I know this label very well. We decided to sing up with Agonia Rec exactly because we need to be followed and supported in a more careful and precise way, something that is sometimes quite hard to have if you're part of a major label with hundreds of other bands. There's a crisis in the air, especially in the music industry, reason why we're betting everything on quality. What we will release in 2012 will be a very particular album and it will be required a great commitment from our label, a great commitment, not only from the economic point of view.
"We chose Agonia because is able to give us everything we ask for in order to achieve something very very important, something that people don't really expect. This is the biggest deal of the entire Aborym's career. We have a very high budget, we have confidence and a massive deployment of energies and resources from Agonia's side. Through these premises we should and we must do only great things. The sixth Aborym album will be released in 2012 and it will celebrate the 20th anniversary of activity of the Italian combo.
"We'll celebrate 20 years of Aborym through a series of surprises for our fans. The album we're working on will be something extremely astonishing, something that nobody can even remotely imagine. Aborym has always been like that, but this time we'll walk beyond the lines. Our new album will be also a reward to all our fans: our own way to say thank you for 20 years of support and passion for our music."
"It's great to be working again with Agonia Records," adds guitarist Hell.IO.Kabbalus, "and we're already sticking down with Fabban some new material for the next album. If you think Psychogrotesque was crazy, this next one is going to fuck your synapses from behind."
In July 2011 the new t-shirt celebrating the 20th year of the band,will be available and one of the songs from the next album will be used to record a new video clip.
Italy's Aborym had previously announced Davide Tiso (Ephel Duath) and Karyn Crisis (Karyn Crisis Band) are performing guest spots on the band's new album "Psychogrotesque," which is set to drop on November 8th, 2010. Davide Tiso commented on working with Aborym:
"I have nothing but respect for Aborym. I followed and supported the band since their '99 Kali Yuga Bizarre and I consider Aborym the boldest extreme metal act ever born in Italy. I find remarkable their ability in reinventing themselves album after album. Aborym is a lonely beast in the underground metal forest, and Fabban is a truly visionary leader: I'm proud of what he's reaching with his music. I'm sure Aborym will continue to surprise in the future, this is what they usually do. It has been a pleasure to do a guest appearance in their new album and I'm particularly touched by what Karyn did on those songs. I still have shivers thinking about that one vocal take she did on the album's closing song! I wish Aborym to receive the massive attention they deserve."
Karyn Crisis also added: "It's not often that I feel connected enough to someone else's music to want to sing on it. Music is a strange, foreign language to me, yet Aborym's new album was a language I identified with. It speaks a psychological dialect I understand, yet it's at the same time new and surprising. The concept and rhythmic ideas are great, and it's been a very real pleasure to be a part of it."
Italian black metallers ABORYM's fifth album will be out on next November 8th. The cover artwork of "Psychogrotesque," created by the band's leader Fabban himself, can be seen at this location.
The artist comments, "I realised the 'Pyschogrotesque' artwork as I was inspired by the lyrics and the story that are being told in this album, trying to "visualise" the sceneries and the mood of this all... On the cover there is the main character, his look is terrorised and lost. Below, the place where he is annihilated, the place where this story takes place: a mental home, the world where we live. Inside the artwork, I wanted to add some "Easter eggs", some tiny particulars with hidden messages... There are few of them scattered everywhere."
Italian electro/black metallers Aborym will release their fifth album "Psychogrotesque" on November 8th. The band's now-established three member line-up is joined by a number of special guests and friends: Richard K. Szabo of TWZ, Narchost (Malfeitor, Demon's Shade, Stormcrow), Pete Michael Kolstad Vegem (Blood Tusnami and Mongo Ninja), Giulio Moschini (Hour of Penance), bassist Emiliano Natali (Shoreborn), and Davide Tiso (Ephel Duath and Karyn Crisis Band).
Aborym also commented on the guest spots: "The most sensational and unprecedented collaboration on this record, and probably the most sensational in Aborym’s entire career since 1993, is with Karyn Crisis. A historical shamanic singer of the legendary combo metal-hardcore crossover Crisis from New York, as well as pioneer of the female-fronted movement also involved in the past with Six Feet Under, Sigillum S, Voivod’s vocalist and currently in the Karyn Crisis Band together with Davide Tiso, Karyn Crisis returns on the international extreme metal scene with Aborym, through one of the most insane and violent performances of all time behind the microphone."
Four years after the release of "Generator," Italian electro/post black metallers Aborym are back with their fifth album. Set for a November 8th release, the new full-length is entitled "Psychogrotesque" and is made of one story, a single song written by the band’s mastermind Malfeitor Fabban and talented guitarist Hell:IO:Kabbalus.
Aborym describes the album as a "realistic story about the horrific human aridity and its fragile impotence. A social metaphor, uncomfortable but very current, treated cynically by bassist-singer Fabban through a story set in a mental hospital, which suggests that he used his pen with an absolute commitment and the determination to keep off Aborym from the banality and clichés both ideological-aptitudinal and musical that saturate the extreme metal scene."
"Psychogrotesque" was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Fear No One Studios by Emiliano Natali, with the sound consulting of Marc Urselli at the Eastside Sound Studios in New York.
Italy's Aborym entered the Fear No One Studios on February 19th, 2010 to begin recording their 5th album. The band has now posted a video clip online from the recording sessions, which can be viewed below.
Italy's Aborym has issued the following update about gearing up to enter the recording studio:
"Aborym will enter the studio again the 19th of February. This new opus will be a concept consisting of only one track, a harsh monolith of sickness, violence and depravity. The album will be recorded in the Fear No One Studios owned by Emiliano Natali and will be out later this year through Season of Mist. Line-Up: M.Fabban - Vocals, Bass, Synths, Hell:I0:Kabbalus - Guitars, Synths, Backing Vocals, B.Faust - Drums WE ARE BACK."
Aborym are also currently streaming several sample tracks online through their MySpace page.
Italian black metallers Aborym have issued the following announcement about working on a new album:
"After the release of 'Generator' in 2006, Aborym started the songwriting for their next album planned for 2010 under Season of Mist Records.
"Aborym currently are: M.Fabban, Hell:I0:Kabbalus, Bard G. 'Faust' Eithun."
MALFEITOR, the Italian black metal band featuring bassist/vocalist M. Fabban (ABORYM), has issued the following update:
"After eight months of partnership with the session bass player Nighthorn and M. Fabban's decision to take care of vocals only, MALFEITOR announce the new lineup."
Commented M. Fabban: "I've decided to dedicate myself to vocals only for this project due to several accidents that obliged me to avoid heavy duty stuff with my right hand. I will continue as a bassist only with ABORYM."
The statement adds: "MALFEITOR wish to thank Nighthorn sincerely for all the gigs played together and for friendship and professionality shown in everything regarding this project. Respect and support go to his bands, HOUR OF PENANCE above all." More...
Italian/Norwegian industrial black metal band ABORYM has parted ways with guitarist Nysrok Infernalien.
"We wish Nysrok the very best in all aspects of his life," mainman Malfeitor Fabban said in a statement, "but both me and Bård Faust [a.k.a. Bård G. Eithun; drums] would really like to write and compose new material without him, due of many personal and private problems regarding him and his approach to our way of working, living and thinking, problems we don't like to share with people and journalists. Nowadays we're working hard on new material in order to record a new album in 2008. New fresh meat will be involved in the band."
Added Faust: "Both Fabban and I are eager on starting on the next album and I am pretty sure the Italian mastermind is coming up with some superb and twisted music as always."
ABORYM's last CD, "Generator", came out in February 2006 via Season of Mist.
Italian black metallers Malfeitor (M:Fabban (Aborym) on vocals and bass guitar and Atum (ex Biastema - Kvntvr – Tundra) signed a 1-album-deal with Scarlet Records (www.scarletrecords.it). M.Fabban himself explains: “I know Scarlet’s crew since 1997, they know how to launch a newborn piece of evil like Malfeitor. We received lots of interesting offers in order put some inch on paper, but Scarlet is a well-organized, well structured label, they’ve been in the scene for many years. They will do a cool work fo us. No doubts”
The debut full-lenght will be out in September 2007 both in CD and vynil LP formats. Its title will be “Unio Mystica Maxima”, 9 tracks of mind-crushing, freezing, obscure and weird luciferian black metal:
Adveniat Infernus – intro
Rex Bestia Fera
In This Place Forever
Unio Mystica Maxima
Jesus Christi to the Lions
Black Magic Mushrooms (Mysticum Cover)
The artwork of the album, currently under-construction, will be signed by M.Fabban. The front cover of both the CD and LP version was realized by Marcelo HVC [Poisoned To Reality, Brazil].
Before the full-length’s release in September, Malfeitor will release a special hand-numbered , 666 copies limited edition split 7” EP with the Norwegian band Amok (feat. Goatpromoter Lava, ex Taake), through War Arts Production (Portugal - www.war-arts-productions.com).
Candlelight Records / Nocturnal Art Productions has set a March 19 release date for the debut album from BLOOD TSUNAMI, the Oslo, Norway-based thrash metal band featuring drummer Bård G. Eithun (a.k.a. Faust; SCUM, ABORYM, ex-EMPEROR). The CD, aptly titled "Thrash Metal", was recorded at Lion Heart Studios in Oslo with engineer Øivind Voldmo Larsen. According to a press release, the album's artwork "will be over-the-top fantastic and the man going nuts on the canvas is Alex Horley Orlandelli, who is also known for his great drawings for Marvel comics, Heavy Metal magazine and Image comics."
BLOOD TSUNAMI last year announced the addition of former GLUECIFER bassist Stu Manx to the group's ranks.
BLOOD TSUNAMI previously worked with Øivind Voldmo Larsen at Lion Heart Studios on their "Demo 2005", which can still be heard on the band's official MySpace page.
