Sven de Caluwe, ABORTED front man, comments on the new song and album:
“Here it is ghouls and maniacs! The first, opening track and title track to our fine new little piece of auricular mayhem called RETROGORE. A profound little diddy that somewhat recalls the finesse and tactfulness of Monty Python’s ‘The meaning of life’ or as we shall call it our own ‘The meaning of Death(metal)’. You see, folks, there are blast beats, there are ridiculously fast kicks all over the place, really, really, reaallly dark melodies to make you churn and some shredding for those who like that thing called musicianship. To top it off we have myself puking all over it in a fashion that would make Cookie monster cringe and Kim Kardashian shake that big ole butt of hers. In other words, it’s Aborted, it’s uncensored gooey, gory fun for the whole family! Enter the nostalgic world of RETROGORE and don’t be a chump, get a pre order and be part of something that will bring you joy and happiness, for at least one hour! Guaranteed!”
