Latest release: "Psychogrotesque"
Release date: Mon, Nov 08 2010, US Tue, Nov 09 2010
Four years after the critically acclaimed "Generator", Italian electro/post black metallers ABORYM are back with their fifth album! Set for a November 23rd release, the new full-length is entitled "Psychogrotesque" and is made of one story, a single song written four-handedly by the band's mastermind Malfeitor Fabban and talented new guitarist Hell:IO:Kabbalus.
ABORYM describe the album as a "realistic story about the horrific human aridity and its fragile impotence. A social metaphor, uncomfortable but very current, treated cynically by bassist-singer Fabban through a story set in a mental hospital, which suggests that he used his pen with an absolute commitment and the determination to keep off ABORYM from the banality and clichés both ideological/aptitudinal and musical that saturate the extreme metal scene".
"Psychogrotesque" was recorded, mixed and mastered at Fear No One Studios by Emiliano Natali, with the sound consulting of Marc Urselli (founder of Memory Lab and sound engineer for artists like JOHN ZORN, LAURIE ANDERSON, LOU REED, ERIC CLAPTON) at the prestigious Eastside Sound Studios in New York.
