I sort of discovered Aborym backwards, AFTER first interviewing mastermind Fabban for his one time excellent black metal side project Malfeitor. I remember Dave at Earsplit PR was like, “You have to check out Aborym also. They are much weirder with industrial influences and like a bad acid trip.” Haha, Dave was correct!
Now Aborym are back with exciting news of a new album and reconfigured line-up. ABORYM have revealed the first details surrounding their new album Shifting.negative. The opus, which is currently being recorded in three different studios, is helmed by band founder Fabban with additional production by New York’s multi-grammy winner Marc Urselli (John Zorn, Lou Reed, Mike Patton, Tomahawk) at EastSide Sounds Studios.
Amongst those invloved in the production of the album are also the band’s sound egineer Emiliano Natali (Fear No One Studios, already on “Psychogrotesque” and “Dirty”), Luciano Lamanna (Subsound Studios) and Teo Pizzolante (Braingasm Lab).
Excluding Fabban, Shifting.negative will introduce an entirely new line-up of the Italian based combo. Multi-instrumentalist Dan V has became a new permanent member and has already recorded guitars and bass on the upcoming album. The line-up is further shaped by longtime ABORYM associate & bassist RG Narchost, guitarist Davide Tiso (Gospel of the Witches, ex-Ephel Duath, Niō) and synth-player/keyboardist Stefano Angiulli.
Aborym of course have many great releases with various collaborators from recent Dirty to the great and very ahead of the times Kali Yuga Bizarre. It will be interesting to see their continued evolution as they always manage to find some cutting edge new ground to occupy.
The “Shifting.negative” tracklist in no particular running order is as follows:
Decadence in a nutshell
Slipping through the cracks
10050 Cielo Drive
For a better past
Tragedies for sale
Going new places
You can’t handle the truth
Shifting.negative is set to be released on Agonia Records at a date yet to be determined. More news will follow soon.
