ABORYM: Premiered a Second Track "Hallowed Be Thy Name"


Italo-Norwegian Hard-Industrial-Electro Extreme Metallers ABORYM has premiered a second track taken off their upcoming album entitled "Dirty". The track "Hallowed Be Thy Name" is a cover of Iron Maiden. Check out below.

The new 10-track double album, which will be available in digipak, jewel case and gatefold double LP formats, is set for release on Agonia Records on the 28th May in Europe and the 11thJune in the USA/North America. The first CD of the album will feature completely new material, and the second CD will include two completely re-arranged and re-recorded tracks from previous albums, covers of tracks by IRON MAIDEN, PINK FLOYD and NINE INCH NAILS, as well as a previously unreleased track written by Alberto Penzin (CO2, ex Schizo) and performed by both established musicians as well as several fans and spliced together from all the different sources.

Guitarist Paolo Pieri commented: "This is definitely the most schizoid and experimental ABORYM work so far. This time we focused on pushing the boundaries of electronic music one step forward while retaining the ruthless brutality of extreme metal in a way totally ahead of the times".

Drummer Bard “Faust” Eithun added:“This time around ABORYM push everything further; the electronic and industrial elements have never been so present. Rest assured, no matter how sick, twisted and beyond everything it sounds, it is still ABORYM.”

The last word falls to founder Fabban: “I believe that "Dirty" represents the best material ever written by ABORYM from 1992 until today.  Given that it wasn’t that easy to go beyond an album such as "Psychogrotesque", I strongly believe that this time we did exceed every limit and every concept of experimentation - manipulating all the clich├Ęs of extreme metal, industrial or electronic music and pushing together elements that are so far away from each other. As a result, we achieved something really innovative, powerful, refined and of a really high standard. The quality of sounds, the nuances, the details passing through the recording quality;  the quality of the machines that we used and abused, the quality of the lyrics, the artwork and the performances of each of us and of all the people who have worked with us, are definitely all at the top. "Dirty" is a record that simply expands the range of our listeners, it’s an album that everyone can enjoy and really appreciate. I am personally very excited and, at the same time, really proud of what you’ll soon be able to listen to. We worked so hard for the past two years on this double album that we have no words to really explain how excited we are to finally see it released. It’s an album that will further change the history of extreme music. Of that I have no doubt.”
