Crystal Lake & Shadow Of Intent Members To Guest On New Aborted Album “ManiaCult”

Aborted have revealed that Crystal Lake’s Ryo Kinoshita and Shadow Of Intent’s Ben Duerr will be guesting on their new album “ManiaCult“ (out September 10). Previously confirmed guests include Fit For An Autopsy‘s Joe Badolato, who appears on the title track, and Humanity’s Last Breath’s Filip Danielsson, who appears on “Drag Me To Hell.“

Aborted Premiere New Song “ManiaCult” Featuring Fit For An Autopsy’s Joe Badolato

Aborted have released a new single titled “ManiaCult.” The song, which features Fit For An Autopsy’s Joe Badolato, serves as the title track of the band’s new album, which will be available on September 10. Aborted commented:

“Like lambs to the slaughter, Wayland takes you to your next trip after you spent the night in hell. Ghouls and Ghoulettes, we are very proud to present to you the title track of our new album Maniacult, errr… ‘MANIACULT’!!! This song features a very special guest, our good friend and one and only Joebad from Fit for an Autopsy making sure you shake dat ass during its heavier parts. We hope you enjoy becoming part of the ManiaCult, as we have quite a few surprises left to come! We have such sights to show you.”

Aborted Premiere New Song “Drag Me To Hell” Featuring Filip Danielsson (Humanity’s Last Breath)

Aborted have premiered a new song titled “Drag Me To Hell.” The track, which features Filip Danielsson (Humanity’s Last Breath), is from the band’s new album “ManiaCult,” which will be released on September 10. The group commented:

“Alright alright! It’s good old Jack Burton here, and he’s got one thing to say: ‘get ready for the boom stick!’ We have such sights to show you—or rather sounds to play you—with the next single from ‘ManiaCult‘, ‘Drag Me to Hell‘. Trust me, you’re going to want to click that button and spread it before Wayland comes for YOU. We also welcome Filip Danielsson of Humanity’s Last Breath to the ‘ManiaCult‘ via a killer guest spot. Considering Wayland’s goal is the end of humanity, we’d say Filip’s support is a great harbinger…”

Aborted Offer Look At Their Limited Edition “ManiaCult” Action Figure

Aborted have shared a photo of a limited edition action figure that will be included with select pre-order bundles for their new album “ManiaCult“ (out September 10). The band said the following about that:

“Meet your ManiaCult leader. Wayland Thurston may have control over you (and demand human sacrifices), but you can take back a bit of power by holding a small version of him in your hands. Hell, you could crush him in action figure form, but we wouldn’t recommend it because these are LIMITED. Only 100 of the “dark” version will be for sale online, and the normal one isn’t getting mass-produced, either. Who’s grabbing one when pre-orders go live? Join our mailing list to get updates on when it goes on sale, so you don’t miss out!”

Aborted To Release New Album “ManiaCult” In September

Aborted have announced that their new album “ManiaCult“ will be released on September 10. The cover art for the effort was revealed earlier today via Heaviest Of Art:

The band commented:

“Today is the day, ya bunch of crazies!

We’ve been teasing about it before, but here it is: we are proud to announce our next full length record titled ‘ManiaCult’! This beast is going to be released September 10th on Century Media worldwide and we couldn’t be more proud about the horrific tunes and disgusting sounds we have prepared for you. Prepare for heavy, prepare for blasts, prepare for hell!

On that note, enjoy the amazing cover art done by Par Olofsson by following the link below, which also features an interview with Sven, Stefano and Par himself discussing the artwork, concept and the process to put this together.

Like good ole Jack Burton always says in a time like this: ‘have ya paid your dues? Yes sir, the cheque is in the mail!'”

Aborted’s Sven de Caluwé commented:

“As we all know in this continuous phase of dingus sucking, it wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t have to move our little hell over Europe. Thanks to covid 19-21 we have to reschedule this beast of an extreme metal tour to Feb/March 22. But fear not! We will release our album before that and we have some truly amazing things set up for the tour and record. All bands are part of the line up, anyone who got tickets they remain valid and be sure not to miss out on the party! After all, it’s not a party until you’ve seen Juliens ‘one minute 24 seconds’ naked feet! See you in the pit, you rascals!”

Aborted Begin Recording New Album

Aborted have officially started the recording process for their new album. So far, the drums have already been completed.

The band commented:

“So, as you might have guessed, we have been working hard on a new record, and started the recording process a little while ago. Ken finished drums with Zack Ohren at @sharkbitestudios a little while ago and here’s what he has to say about it:

When working on this record, we actually had the plan to jam with the band for a good week before tracking to really flesh out the songs. Well… we all know what happened last year, so we were left with the choice to wait or to try something different.

I think all of us wanted to avoid the thought of ‘the pandemic is going to lessen our album quality’. Luckily for us, we’ve written music apart from each other for over 10 years now, so the writing process wasn’t too much of a change; recording, however, was a bit different.

As far as drums go, finding a studio, room, and an engineer who can work intense death metal is a must for us. We were fortunate enough to work with Zach Ohren and find a way to work around the pandemic to actually get a record that I think everyone will be insanely stoked on. I for one was very excited to finally get a chance to work with Zach, since I’ve lived in California my whole life and known of Zach’s work for half of it.

Trust me when I tell you that not only did we pull off the covid record, but we managed to pull off one of our strongest records to date and I can’t wait for you all to hear it.”

Aborted commented:

“Ok you dirty ghouls and terror maniacs! The time has come, we’ve all had enough time sitting at home, eating thousands of pizzas and gaining tremendous amounts of weight… and well, eventually, we wrote an album! So here is some good news to make your 2021 hopefully slightly less of a giant smelly turd than 2020:

1. We will be entering the studio, for said album; the writing is done and we are beyond stoked about it. More on that later.
2. HELL OVER EUROPE TIME! That’s right!! Your favorite and most infamous extreme metal tour returns (or well, at least we hope it’s either of those).

Added to the mix to spice up your life are: The Acacia Strain (they hate stuff maybe as much as we do, so we are looking forward to bitch like a bunch of old farts on a daily basis). Once again, we team up with our brothers from (possibly) other mothers Benighted (No promises if Julien will wear footwear, good thing we all have masks, right?). Stefano clearly has some fat to burn, so we figured he should play twice a night and thus our good friends Hideous Divinity have been added as well for a good dose of Mario blasts!”
