Aborted: A Cold Logistic Slaughter: A Video Breakdown

Share:

A blast (beat) from the past!

I’ve long been a fan of Aborted‘s punishing mix of groove-laced death, and 2005’s The Archaic Abattoir is still among my favorite albums to spin when I need an instant injection of chaotic energy. I still find it hard to believe the band was so young at the time of that album’s release. Such intensity at such a young age. That means they put out their first album while they were still in elementary school! While most of us were still struggling with playground politics and learning how to fake out our parents to keep us home sick, these guys were already logging hours in a studio creating The Purity of Perversion.

Just take a look at the baby-faced band of brutalists in the video below, as they embrace a scrappy DIY approach to making some of the best death metal of the genre.

 

The 1997 Geo Tracker – official vehicle of slaughters everywhere – cold, logistic, or otherwise.

 

Toilet Ov Hell

They’re so young they hadn’t even learned how to properly walk.

Hey mom it’s me, yeah I’m upstairs, hey can you bring me some ramen? … *sigh* fine, I’ll fold my laundry first, jeez.

 

NOT THE BEES, AAAHHHH

IT’S STILL IN MY HAIR GET IT OUT GET IT OUT HELP ME AAAHHHH

When you & your buds split a 30 case of Surge.

*reads VHS label* Uh oh, we taped over Jeremy’s First Trepanning. Mom’s gonna be so mad.

 

Special appearance by Reposted Avenged Sevenfold Fan.

Phantom of the Underpass.

YOU WIN, BEES, YOOOUUU WIIIIIIIN

 The classic “bust a nut on the singer’s back while he gobbles the mic-cock” stage move.

Hey guys I’ll keep pace with the song, just in case it helps.

Oh shit there’s still a bee in my hair! Gaaaahhhh!

Dammit dude, why’d you jump in the river like that? Do you know how disgusting that water is? Ugh, you reek of it. I swear to god if you get those seats wet in the Tracker my dad is going to flip out again and ground me from practices for a month. I guess you can just sit on Steve’s backpack, that thing already smells like ass. Anyway let’s hit Taco Bell and call it a day.

    Me living in Belgium and Aborted being Belgian you’d think I’d go and stick my neck out for them everywhere I go…

    …but the truth is I grow tired of their sound very fast.

    Fun blog post though!

    • Howard Dean

      I tend to agree. I thought Global Flatline was a pretty decent listen, but I’ve never been compelled to listen to most of their other stuff. Not a band I ever get excited about.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        They’re fun enough live, but on tape I just find their sound a bit dull even.

    • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

      Never really understood how these guys got so popular……they pretty ok but I much prefer nickelback, staind, foo fighters, blink 182, sum 41, Kid Rock, there, that’s why I’m confused why these guys are so popular….because each one of these bands is better than them?

            Their singer has been making headlines with his recent onstage meltdowns. One time he accused a random audience member of stealing his house.

            To be fair, that guy did steal his house. 😉

      Clearly that teenager is up to no good, probably listening to the heavy metal music and looking to post his illegal activities to Instabook and Facetube and whatnot.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    I’m starting to suspect that might not actually be Aborted.

    Oh, props for using “trepanning”, by the way!

    Fun fact: a high school friend and her boyfriend first bonded over the fact that they both drove Geo Trackers. They’ve been married for like 8 years now. It’s nice when things work out. Thanks, Geo.

  • Waynecro

    Awesome work, Cybro! Though, I believe you are correct: This seems to be some kid’s media project, not a video by Aborted.

      It may not be, perhaps I need to do better research. They had me convinced!

      This is definitely a case of “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”. I’m no fan of Bill Maher.

      • Óðinn

        Yeah. I like his show. I like him personally less. I don’t always agree with him. But for fucks sake, it was obvious Trump was not going to do a good job and that he is a con man before the election. He got way to much support for how poor a candidate he was.

        • Doom Scientist

          The only reason he won is because HRC was even worse. Trump offered his base all the bloody red meat they wanted and then some. HRC fed her voter base watery Cream O Wheat, pretended it was filet mignon, and told them to shut up, eat it, and like it.

          • Óðinn
          • Doom Scientist

            Bernie would’ve kicked Trump’s ass six ways to Sunday. I’ll go to my grave believing that.

          • Óðinn

            Probably. I think Biden could have beat Trump too.

          • Doom Scientist

            He would’ve shown more fight, I’ll say that much.

          • Óðinn

            Yeah, perhaps part of Hillary’s mistake was not fighting enough, thinking Trump was such a bad candidate. I think Bill’s history hurt her too. The grope thing did stop making Trump look so bad when Bill’s past came back to haunt Hillary. Honestly, I don’t know how many of the accusations against Bill are actually true, but it is baggage that exists.

          • Doom Scientist

            As much as I hate admitting it’s a factor, HRC is just not a likable person, at all. She exudes coastal liberal elitism.
            I’m sure many of the accusations against Bill are true. I’m more than certain Trump is the same if not worse. However, I honestly don’t think Bill’s past was a big of a factor as it may seem. He’s still pretty popular with Democrats.
            Me? I can’t stand The Clintons, never could, but at least they were competent and could get the business of gov’t done, for what that’s worth.

          • Óðinn

            No. I guess she’s not. TBH, when she was running for the leadership for the 2008 candidacy, I was solidly behind Obama. However, in the context of this last election, and even though I wanted Sanders and the Democratic candidate, I figured that Hillary was at least qualified while Trump would be a disaster. I think Republican cheating and gerrymandering plays into it too. Republicans will cheat if they can’t win. Honestly, its arguable whether Bush or Trump could have become President without cheating.

            I guess I’m a bit shielded from the coastal elite sentiment felt in much of America. I don’t spend much time with people from red states. My whole life is spent on the coasts, working in the film industry, and at the university when I’m at home. I kind of understand it, but it’s been many years since I felt that kind sentiment myself. I do believe it exists though.

          • Doom Scientist

            Both her and Obama were far down on my list in 2008. I was in the tank for the Keebler Elf(Kucinich), but when it came down to BHO & HRC, I voted Obama.

            I would even take a qualified Republican over Trump. It’s definitely a question of qualification in that case.

            Despite being leftie to the bone, I’ve managed to have friends of different political stripes. Seems before about 15 years ago, it wasn’t even a thing. From that, and from having a working class or worse life, I can see where the resentment of elites comes from. I harbor suspicion against such types myself.

          • Óðinn

            Maybe it was easier years ago. I’ve seen the right wing get way more extreme though. I’m sure you have too. You can’t even really talk to those people anymore sadly. When somebody starts spewing stuff that’s separated from reality, sometimes you just have to not speak to them at all.

          • more beer

            Both sides have gotten more extreme. It works both ways. It used to be people didn’t talk about their politics. It wasn’t anyone’s business but their own. Even if they did. They weren’t ostracized for it. Personal choices. Whatever happened to those?

          • Doom Scientist

            A quote from Blake’s 7 is applicable.

            Vila: Hey! I’m entitled to my opinion!
            Avon: It’s the notion that WE are entitled to it as well that’s the problem.

            I would be quite happy if Joe banned all political talk on this site, and I mean ALL.

          • Doom Scientist

            Obviously if the music/movie being discussed at the time is political in nature, that’s a different thing.

          • Óðinn

            People are entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. When one side chooses to ignore facts, or pretends to believe in things that simply aren’t true, that’s when meaningful dialog breaks down. It means you can no longer trust those you deal with politically.

          • Doom Scientist

            Democrats chose to ignore the facts when they went after Bernie Sanders.

          • Óðinn

            Sure. That’s true. You’re right. And it created a dangerous divide in the Democratic Party. There was a lack of fairness there.

            And Trump/Republicans cheated (with help from Putin), even of this issue. They used trolls and and bots to fuel the divide. I have a real problem with colluding with a hostile foreign power to cheat the election.

            Should be interesting. Apparently Jared Kushner was involved in conversations with the Russian too.

          • more beer

            To be honest with both of you. We will never see real change. Until we get past this bullshit 2 party system. Neither party is on our side. We need to start over from scratch. Every incumbent politician needs to be voted out of office. Incumbent should equal unemployment line. After the next election. None of them are actually working for us. Both sides are working for the multinational corporations and the lobbyists. Place the blame where it really belongs. On both parties. Neither one is better than the other. I personally see every career politician as someone to look at with suspicion. You should as well.

          • Óðinn

            Yes. The big issue is that we allow paid lobbying in our elections. Getting rid of private money in politics is the key.

          • more beer

            Since it doesn’t appear that is going to happen. What needs to be done. Is get rid of all of these politicians with their hands out. They have all forgotten it is we the people. Not we the corporations. But everyone just keep on fighting with each other. Over stupid shit like which party is better. These greedy fucks stay in power. While they screw the rest of us. Both parties are guilty of this. As this is something that goes both ways.

          • Óðinn

            Unfortunately, getting rid of the current group of politicians without changing the campaign financing rules or the gerrymandering that’s goes on, will quickly lead us exactly back to where we are. Different people who are corrupt.

          • more beer

            Then we get rid of them. Sooner or later they will realize if they don’t do their jobs. They will have no jobs.

            Have you looked up this “Camp Of The Saints” book Bannon loves so much? You should. The description alone makes The Turner Diaries sound like Bambi.

          • Óðinn

            No. I’ll have to look that up.

          • Doom Scientist

            It’s a repellent, horrifying look into the wingnut psyche. If they existed, I would consider the Book Of Eibon, the Al Azif, or even the Necronomicon less evil than Camp Of The Saints.

          • Óðinn

            I just did a quick look on Wikipedia. It sounds like the type of stuff that Bannon would be worried about (immigration).

          • Doom Scientist

            Someone described it as ” World War Z with refugees instead of zombies”.

            I’m an atheist. Nobody likes atheism more than I do. But I can’t believe that a billion Muslims are all bad people, nor do I believe that people like Bannon have a problem with Muslims based solely on theological principles.

          • Doom Scientist

            Oh, I guarantee that rich, white Muslims would get at least a begrudging pass because they’re “civilized”.
            It’s just like a commentator says. This book is just a reversal of what Europeans did when they came to the so-called “New World”. It’s “Whitey” being scared shitless of blowback.

          • Doom Scientist

            Bannon has such an unhealthy look about him. I don’t usually notice that about people right off the bat but with him it’s so obvious. He looks like my dead uncle who was a raging alcoholic.

          • Óðinn

            I agree, he probably hits the bottle pretty hard. Gin blossom.
