Interview

Aborted Frontman On "TerrorVision" And New Music

As I mentioned recently, death metal is truly a global phenomenon. It's generally agreed upon that the style was born in America, but bands from all over the world have been able to put their own spin on it over the past four decades and take it in all kinds of weird and wonderful directions. Perhaps the masters of brutal and grizzly death metal come from somewhere you wouldn't expect, the Belgian city of Waregem to be exact; Aborted.

With their latest album, "TerrorVision" out for a year now and a new EP on the way, Aborted are currently on a hectic tour with fellow death metal legends Entombed A.D. and up and comers Baest, bringing a hurricane of heaviness across Europe. At the first date of the tour in London, I caught up with frontman Sven de Caluwé to talk about "TerrorVision," the new EP, the use of horror imagery and much more. You can watch the interview in full below.

Diamond Oz: Let's talk about "TerrorVision," which has been out for a year now. Now that the dust has settled, how you feel the reaction has been so far?

Sven de Caluwé: I think it's been pretty good so far. It's been a great record for us. We've done some of our best tours, especially headlining so we can't complain. We're very happy with it still. We already have some new stuff which will be out sometime next year. Not an album, more of an EP, so we're very busy.

Oz: What's interesting about "TerrorVision" is that this is the first Aborted album to have pre-production. Why the decision this time to go that route?

Sven: Because we wanted to be really prepared when we went into the studio. This is also the first time we've recorded in split up teams, so Ken and I recorded in Germany and the other guys were in Holland recording guitars and bass. So we weren't physically present, so I think it was important for us to have a very clear idea of what we wanted. Plus Kohle, who we like to work with, likes to be involved and sometimes switches structures around and we figured if we do everything ahead of time and he has time to check it out, then we can do these excercises before we're there so it's less of a surprise and get the best performance possible in the studio.
