Aborted: Guitarist Mendel bij de Leij Exits Band

Aborted guitarist Mendel bij de Leij announces his exit from the band, issuing the following statement this weekend:

“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 band themselves commented:

“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“

The Flaying Reveals New Album “Angry, Undead” Details

The Flaying, death metal from Quebec City, Canada will release their second album “Angry, Undead” on March?22,?2019, via PRC Music. Working with Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) at The Grid in Montreal, QC, the band has manifested pure mayhem for their fastest and most brutal debauchery to date.

Their first single off this devastating sophomore album is “La Valse du Scorpion” which is described by the band as:

“Poetry of obsessive dependence stranded in duplicity and evil; the will to confront the same Einstein sentence about trying to get different results by doing the same things on and on and avoiding insanity BUT the power within to sublimate absolute evil by the will and preservation of a pure heart, it’s a love song as well.”

The concept of “Angry, Undead” is an intricate one with each of the eight songs falling under a distinct axis: Chaos (social manifestations); Madness (individual manifestations); and Void (existential manifestations). It is brutal, instinctive, unique, and wicked, and is recommended for fans of Cryptopsy, Archspire, Suffocation, and Deicide.

Track Listing:
1. Ouverture Écarlate
2. Disloqué
3. Place du Parvis
4. Genuflect
5. Egocentric Predicament
6. Elegy of Emptiness
7. La Valse du Scorpion
8. Angry, Unleashed
9. Angry, Undead
