Aborted should change their name to Adopted. That’s all they’ve really ever done concerning other bands’ styles. Don’t get me wrong, I love this band and always have. In fact, I’d be willing to bet I liked them way before you did, so don’t get lippy, bitch. It’s just that after repeated spins of Strychnine.213, I miss the days when they’d rip off Carcass and Cannibal Corpse as opposed to the full fledge Metalcore troupe they’ve become over the last few years. I recall it didn’t bother me at all at first. In fact, I believe my exact remarks to a close friend after hearing 2005’s Archaic Abattoir were, “Fucking holy fucking shit, dude! The new fucking Aborted has motherfucking breakdowns! Fuck yeah, man! Fucking mosh!!” Or something along those lines. Well, what a difference three years and now two cleaner, watered-down versions of Archaic Abattoir have made. My immediate reaction to Slaughtered & Apparatus you might ask? “Is this fucking Shadows Fall?” And to this album I say, “I think I’ll have a beer and go listen to Engineering the Dead.” In all honesty, this really isn’t that bad. But it really isn’t that Aborted either.
