Guitarist Mendel bij de Leij Exits Aborted

Guitarist Mendel bij de Leij has announced his departure from Aborted. The band’s upcoming tour with Cryptopsy, Benighted, and Hideous Divinity will go on as planned with guest guitarist Harrison Patuto (Vale Of Pnath, etc.).

Mendel bij de Leij commented:

“Man, where do I begin? I guess I’ll cut right to the chase: After almost 7 years of what has been one of the best experiences of my life, we mutually have come to the agreement that this is the point where Aborted ends for me.

After my father passed away last year my focus started to slowly shift on different levels whereas the others were dedicated and motivated to make Aborted dominate, and believe me: they will, and I’m extremely proud of them.

I remember I started listening to Aborted back in 2004, becoming a fan boy and I’ll never forget the moment Sven asked me to join 8 years later; truly a moment I still embrace to this day.

Of course I will miss my brothers, I love them; I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them. I couldn’t have wished for any better group of idiots, not a chance!

For now I will focus on my solo project “Mendel”, my job (being a mixing/mastering engineer) and other musical endeavors.

And the following is a cliché perhaps, but truly: All the fans around the world and all those who’ve supported us, you guys fucking rule from the bottom of my heart.

Now if you guys don’t support my boys on their upcoming tour and future plans: I’ll get Chuck Norris to roundhouse kick all of you.

Cheers”

The group added:

“We’d like to take the opportunity to thank Mendel for all the great moments we shared together and wish him nothing but the best with his future endeavors. At the same time we are excited to announce Harrison Patuto (Vale of Pnath, Dissonance in Design) as our fill in guitarist for the HONA tour, who has proven to be more than up to the task.

Hide yo kids, hide yo wives, the boys are coming to a town near you to spread the terror vision so come on out to join the damn blast beat party!!

Sven, Ken, Ian, Stefano“

Aborted Premiere “Deep Red” Video

Aborted have premiered a new video for their song “Deep Red.” This track is from the band’s latest album “TerrorVision.”

The group commented:

“Since Hell over Europe was such a good time we decided to bring the line up as complete as possible to North America where we will spread the TerrorVision for the first time. We are beyond stoked to be touring again with our good friends in Cryptopsy and Benighted, as well to have Stefano suffer through two sets a day.

So you can come on over, enjoy some blastbeats, place your bets on how many kg’s or pounds Stefano will weigh at the end, and come have a chat with us all. On top of that we brutalised the fine people from Panda Productions once more for the 3rd video for TerrorVision, this time for the lovely chanson d’amour called Deep Red.

This rattling tale of romance enfolds in fields adorned with unicorns and many more politically correct settings. Go live a little people, listen to death metal and bang your damn heads to the power of the Blast! Praise the scroll!”
