There’s less than a week to go until the Midlands once again plays host to the UK’s biggest outdoor unabashed metal festival. Make no mistake – Bloodstock Open Air carries no caveats about being a “rock” festival. It is about being the heaviest fully-camping festival the UK has to offer, and their 2014 line-up – stuffed to the guts with death, black, and extreme metal – sets the festival apart from the larger Download and Sonisphere Festivals. That’s not a bad thing – a little variety goes a long way in the saturated UK festival market – so naturally this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is all about the Bloodstock 2014 line-up.
Aborted is a death metal band that originates from Waregem, Belgium. However, they are now an international band composed with members from Belgium, The Netherlands, and the United States.
They were formed in 1995 by vocalist Sven De Caluwé, drummer Steven, bassist Koen and guitarist Niek. A second guitarist Christophe augmented the band in 1997 and later Steven would relinquish the drum stool to Frank.
They self-released a demo “The Necrotorous Chronicles” in 1998. Read more on Last.fm

This far into the very existence of death metal, bands may well have to go against the anti-melodic grain many of the genre tend to follow. Bands like Decapitated have raised the bar for blasters and grinders to find groove – an elusive, serpent-like creature few bands come to capture and train to dance effectively alongside the ultimate brutality all death metal acts inevitably compete to attain.
