I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Aborted - Slaughter & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture [2007]

Increased production quality from TAA. It's not quite as grind-oriented as some of the previous albums, but it's still well-done. One negative addition to the music is the melodic riffs. This album feel much less like a Death Metal album than TAA did and I think that the songwriting is mostly to blame. One nice change is that there is much more darkness to the songs. On its own it's a good album that has catchy riffs, heavy guitars, some grinding drums, and awesome production.

Rating: 8
