- industrial electro rock metal

Aborym is an italian five-piece industrial electro rock metal band active on the scene since 1992 with 7 official studio albums whose avantguardistic and experimental approach and eye-popping lyrics have attracted hundreds. With a career span of over 25 years, they firstly established themselves as pioneers in the Extreme Industrial Metal genre, setting new landmarks for them as well as for other activists in the Extreme Metal scene, and over the last few years shifting to a more Industrial Rock Metal environment while putting more emphasis on their Industrial landscapes, entering a new era in the exploration of Industrial music in an effort that cannot be made more clear with their latest output SHIFTING.negative.
Aborym were originally formed in Taranto, in 1992, by Fabban aka Fabrizio Giannese, who writes, arranges, performs and produces all of Aborym material.

Fabban grew up isolated in the southern italian city of Taranto where he studied classical piano and switching to keyboards/synthesizers and playing in his own garage; he formed the very first Aborym 3 piece line-up in 1992. He moved to Rome in 1996 after the recordings of the first Aborym self-made demo and reformed the band in 1997 with a new line-up. In 1999, the band struck a deal with the italian Scarlet Records to release their first full-length album, “Kali Yuga Bizarre”. The album was well-received, with the caveat that was to become their trademark at that time.

In 2001, Aborym released their second album, “Fire Walk with Us!”, with Csihar fulfilling vocal duties, an extremely well received album. Terrorizer awarded it album of the month with a maximum score of 10/10.

2003 saw Aborym release “With No Human Intervention” through Code666 in Europe and Mercenary Musik/WEA/Arista in the United States. The album continued to expand on the band's experimentation with electronica, with Aborym citing influences from Drum 'n' Bass, Jungle, Techno, Classical, EBM and Industrial. Following the album's release, Aborym played at the prestigious Inferno Festival in 2004, with Eithun guesting on drums for the track “Alienation of a Blackened Heart”.

In 2006, Aborym signed with a bigger label in the form of Season of Mist to release their fourth record, “Generator”. Nathan Pearce of Ultimatemetal.com comment that: "Aborym is now a band that should appeal to a wider audience without alienating their already solid fan base”.

In 2010, Aborym became a trio: Fabban, Bård G. Eithun and new guitarist Paolo Pieri. Recording the fifth album commenced on February 20, at Fear No One Studios, under the supervision of sound engineer Emiliano Natali. The band announced that the album would consist of a single track, which they described as "a harsh sonic monolith of sickness and depravity". The album featured sound consulting by Marc Urselli at Eastside Sound Studios, New York. As usual, the album was announced to be featuring a number of guest appearances, in this case Narchost (of Fabban's other band, Malfeitor), Karyn Crisis (Crisis), Davide Tiso (Ephel Duath), Marcello Balena, and Richard Szabo (of Timewave Zero), amongst others yet to be revealed. In August 2010, Aborym announced that the title of the fifth album was to be “Psychgrotesque” and was to be released on November 8 in Europe (November 23 in the USA).

On October 2012, Aborym entered Fear No One studios to record their sixth album, the follow-up to Psychogrotesque, called “Dirty”. The 10-track double album has been released on Agonia Records on the 28th May in Europe and the 11th June in the USA/North America. “Dirty” was recorded at Fear No One Studios, in Italy, with Emiliano Natali, reprising his role as sound engineer from the band's “Psychogrotesque” album, and it is helmed by Marc Urselli, of New York’s Eastside Sound Studio, who has worked with the likes of Mike Patton, John Zorn, Lou Reed... The electronic part of the album is engineered by D. Loop (Kebabtraume and Limbo). R.G. Narchost (Drowning Ashes) created The Spiral Shaped Chamber custom sounds' library for the band. The artwork has been crafted by Aborym's Fabban. “Dirty”'s first CD features new material, whilst the second comes with two tracks from previous albums, which have been completely re-arranged and re-recorded, as well as with covers from tracks by Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd and Nine Inch Nails, plus a previously unreleased track performed by several musicians such as Agonia BV, Tamara Picardo, Samuel Heru Ra Ha MK, Hostis, Ulven, Mike Bizzini, David Cholasta, Tobias Dünnebacke, Jonathan Butcher, Jessy Lavallee, Thomas Hochstetler, Mary J. Rooks, Amanda Neilson, Mark Llewellyn and several fans. The song was written by Alberto Penzin (CO2 and ex-Schizo) and was spliced together from all the different sources.

In 2014, Fabban again worked with Marc Urselli on a remix of the “Dirty” album titled “Dirty Remix”, released via Stridulation Records (Fabban and Urselli's record label), featuring 7 remixes by Mortiis, Throne of Molok, Kingdom, XP8, Red Sector A, Emiliano Natali/Angelo Vernati and RG Narchost, and it contains a previously unreleased track entitled “A.T.W.A. | All the Way Alive” and a new version of “Does Not Compute (Captain Morgan Version)” from the critically-acclaimed album “With No Human Intervention”. A few months before that release, Fabban remixed a song by XP8, “Camden Town (Drunk People in a Limo Remix)”.

Later that year, “Live in Groningen” has been released by the french label Dead Seed Production. It’s the first official live album from Aborym. The seven-track album includes a rare recording captured on May the 21st 2004 in Groningen (The Netherlands), during the band's European tour, and 2 unreleased industrial songs, featuring the “With No Human Intervention” album's line-up. “Live in Groningen” has been remastered by Fabban and Emiliano Natali at Fear No One studios.

In 2016, Fabban appeared as a special guest on The Reptilian Session and on the ”Technomancy” album by Victor Love with a remix of the song called “The New System”, released by Metropolis Records. He also teamed up with the producer Luciano Lamanna (Subsound studios) and they played for the very first time a 40 minutes' live set with modular synths, [D]ronin and Folktek instruments at Solchi Sperimentali Fest in Rome, organised by the Italian writer-journalist Antonello Cresti.

2017. On January the 25th “SHIFTING.negative”, seventh official album has beend released by Agonia Records (cd, gatefold Lp, boxset, digital). It has been written by Fabban in 3 years, and it was conceived by making songwriting and arranging, pre-production, production and sound design the same thing. Early ideas for “SHIFTING.negative” were conceived after Fabban teamed up with guitarist Dan V. After the recently departed guitarist Paolo Pieri, Fabban employed Dan V along with the long time band's associate RG Narchost, the ex-Ephel Duath mastermind guitarist Davide Tiso and the synth-player keyboardist Stefano Angiulli to achieve various industrial rock, metal elements. “SHIFTING.negative” features a wide range of textures and moods to illustrate the mental and technical progress of the Aborym project and its never-ending industrial uprising. Among the high-profile cameos announced for the band’s seventh official record, alongside Ministry and Revolting Cocks's Sin Quirin, The Electric Hellfire Club's Ricktor and Dope Stars Inc.'s Victor Love, there are Mr Cain Cressall from the crushing australian outfit The Amenta, bringing his unique style of vocal to a few tracks, Luciano Lammana on modular synths, Greg Watkins (Static of Masses, Order Sixty Six), Kelly Bogues (Zogthorgven) on additional ambient noise, Joel Gilardini (The Land of the Snow, Mulo Muto, Black Machineries) additional treated guitars, electronics and (d)ronin, Ben Hall (Silent Eretic) on power-electronics, Tor Helge Skei (Manes) on ambient-electronics, Youko Heidy behind experimental noise and FX.

The “SHIFTING.negative” album has been engineered by Emiliano Natali (Fear No One Studios), Teo Pizzolante (Braingasm Lab) and Luciano Lamanna (Subsound Studios), mixed and mastered by Grammy-award winning Marc Urselli, at Eastside Sound Studios (Lou Reed, John Zorn, Mike Patton). Guido Elmi (Vasco Rossi's legendary producer and manager) has been revealed as the post-production sound supervisor behind the album.

In november 2016 the band teamed up with the sound designer Andrea Corvo and created their own studio and lab called Synthesis Studio and the five piece line-up (Fabban, vocals, modulars, synths, programming; Dan V on guitars; Rg Narchost on bass and guitar; Stefano Angiulli on synths and Gianluca Catalani on drums) started working on rehearsals and new studio works. Fabban Giannese and his collaborators have been working on a series of recordings in their own sound laboratory Synthesis Studio under supervision of sound engineer Andrea Corvo. Fabban was also personally commissioned by director Raffaele Picchio to compose the score of his latest project “Sakrifice” 's Something for Nobody, produced by Riccardo de Flaviis, that will be part of the “Sangue Misto” series (Director's Cut pictures).

This resulted in a series of exclusive new works and remixes and a 3-part soundtrack to be released as a 3-volume vinyl set under the title “Something for Nobody”, with each volume to be released throughout the year and with volume 1 featuring valuable collaborations and guests with artists such as Keith Hillebrandt (Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, U2, Useful Noise, among others), Angela Martyr, Deflore and Luciano Lamanna. This a gift from the band to the die-hard fans, a celebration of 25 years of relentless sonic transgression, furthermore an experiment that will satisfy the most adventurous of listeners.

“Something for Nobody Vol. 1” is set to be released
in July via Dead Seed Productions.
