Below is our complete Aborym news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
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.
As some of you may already know, MAYHEM have set "Ordo Ab Chao" as the title of their new album, due later this year. The band's upcoming CD will mark their first release with vocalist Attila Csihar (TORMENTOR, ABORYM) since their 1993 album, "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas". Attila rejoined MAYHEM in November 2004 as the replacement for departed singer Maniac.
In a recent interview with Decibel magazine, bassist Necrobutcher said about Attila's addition to the group: "It's the inspiration we all needed in MAYHEM. Attila is more committed to the band than almost all three of us together, and that inspires us too. The songs from the rehearsal place sound great. We still have the same aggressiveness. Everything you want from MAYHEM is there. We didn't give in to any kind of commercial thoughts in any way. It's a step from our last album again. If you have our discography, then you will see that every album is completely different, which has something to do with the fact that we usually take two or three or four years in between each recording. There's only so much you can do with a guitar and a drum kit and a bass. We want to show our fans and ourselves that MAYHEM will always be quality over quantity. I'm pleased to say that we have released 38 songs in 21 years. It's all those bootlegs that make the MAYHEM collection look so fucking huge."
BLOOD TSUNAMI, the Oslo, Norway-based thrash metal band featuring drummer Bard G. Eithun (a.k.a. Faust; SCUM, ABORYM, ex-EMPEROR), are currently spending their time writing and rehearsing new material for their next studio assault. "The new stuff is brutal beyond belief and true fans of quality thrash metal won't be disappointed," the band write in a statement. "The plan is to hit Lion Heart Studio in Oslo, Norway during December this year and record a full-length album."
BLOOD TSUNAMI was formed in 2004 by guitarist and vocalist Pete Evil, who hooked up with Jay on drums and began to arrange and rehearse some metal riffs he had written, but never used during his years in the rock 'n' roll/punk band called HELLRIDE.
The music of BLOOD TSUNAMI was, and still is, nothing but vicious and aggressive old-school thrash metal, heavily influenced by early SLAYER, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, METALLICA, DESTRUCTION and KREATOR.
Soon Riff Randall joined on bass and Dor stepped in on the second guitar. Shortly after they recorded their first demo and on August 24, 2004 they performed their first show. This carnage took place at Last Train, a small rock 'n' roll bar downtown in Oslo, and BLOOD TSUNAMI played support for the mighty Swedish death metal legends ENTOMBED.
After a while, Riff Randall decided to leave the band and was quickly replaced by Bosse, who used to play bass with Pete in HELLRIDE. The band continued to play live and got to play support for another legendary band, namely DEICIDE from Florida. This happened at John Dee in Oslo on October 22, 2004.
Not many months later, Jay also decided to drop out of the band to focus on his work as a graphic designer. Determined to get BLOOD TSUNAMI back on track, Pete soon called up Faust and asked him to join the band. Faust liked what he heard and agreed to give it a try.
With a new lineup intact, the band hit Lion Heart Studios and during three days in July 2005 they recorded another demo. The outcome of this session can be heard at myspace.com/bloodtsunami (English) and NRK.no (Norwegian).
Italian black metallers ABORYM, now featuring former EMPEROR and current SCUM drummer Bård "Faust" Eithun, have set "Generator" as the title of their fourth album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Season of Mist. According to a press release, "'Generator' holds the spirit of dark and unparalleled black metal bound together with a crushing death metal approach — all stitched up with the Italians' fantastic ability to naturally incorporate electronic elements and layers.
"Generator" features Eithun on drums, Prime Evil (MYSTICUM) on vocals, Fabban Malfeitor on bass, synth and backing vocals and Nysrokinfernalien on guitar and guitar synths.
Here is the "Generator" track listing: More...
Former EMPEROR and current SCUM drummer Bård "Faust" Eithun has officially joined Italy's ABORYM as a a full-time member. "I am gonna go to Rome at the end of April to record the fourth album of these cyber black metallers," Faust said in a statement. "I am very excited to hear the result since this is the first time that ABORYM will combine acoustic, organic drums with the electronic beats they have used so far. Should be interesting I think."
In other news, Faust has joined the Norwegian "punk noisers" BOMBEROS, featuring former MAYHEM singer Maniac. "This is a nice break off to the metal music I normally play," Faust said. "The plan is not to conquer the world but rather just play music, do some gigs and fuck around a little."
SCUM, an all-new project featuring Faust, Samoth (ZYKLON, ex-EMPEROR), Happy Tom (TURBONEGRO), Casey Chaos (AMEN) and Cosmocrator (MINDGRINDER), recently recorded their debut album at Crystal Canyon Studio (TURBONEGRO, WE, EUROBOY) in Norway. Although no label or album title has been finalized, provisional songtitles include "Gospels for the Sick", "The Truth Will Be Sold" and "Hate the Sane".
