Aborted sign w/ Century Media Records

Belgian death/grind band Aborted have officially signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. Originally formed in 1995, the group's latest full-length, "The Archaic Abattoir," was released via Century Media imprint Olympic Recordings this past May. Here's a statement from founder and lead vocalist Sven De Caluwé regarding the deal in addition to the band's upcoming North American tour with Suffocation, Cryptopsy, and Despised Icon: "It's been a very hectic, intense and heavy year for Aborted. Yet a year in which we have done tons of amazing things, went to amazing places and met a lot of cool new people. One of those amazing things is being signed to a label we believe will be able to lift this band to new heights. They believe in us 200% and are going to help us take the next step in our careers. With our North American tour we will finally be able to get out to the U.S. and Canada and do some damage. Needless to say we are extremely thrilled to hit the road and to be a part of the growing Century Family, a company that stands for nothing but quality releases and that strongly supports every cool act under their wings."

this band has been going downhill since goremageddon. doesnt suprise me that they signed to CM. ATTENTION EVERYBODY they now put breakdowns in their songs, so dont be so afraid to pick up their new cd when you get the new etid.

death metal bands have better breakdowns than any hardcore metalcore whatever band could ever dream of having. the new aborted album is bad.

even the weakest of metal bands is still heavier than the heaviest of metalcore bands.... just to prove a point...
