"Stef's first shows are this weekend on none less than the Fury Fest and the Graspop festivals," vocalist Sven de Caluwé writes on the group's web site. "We can't wait to get on the road this weekend and do these among the other festivals we have planned, see you on stage to blast like hell!"

Commented Stephane: "I've been a fan of the band for several years now, especially since their 'Goremageddon' album. It's a real honour for me to join the ABORTED line-up. I will do my best to drive an awesome surgery!! Enjoy! See you soon guys!"

Guitarist Bart Vergaert left ABORTED in May for "personal reasons."
