Aborted Release Video For “Expurgation Euphoria” – A Graphic Telling Of Detox

aborted deathmetal


The Death grinders and goremasters known as Aborted released a new video last week for the track “Expurgation Euphoria.” The video, which is ultimately a short film, dives head first into the ugly and torturous horrors of detoxing. As such, the video seems to match the song’s title as a euphoric state of purging or cleansing, but the lyrics (included below) seem to say something different; they seem to say that the song’s drug user will use until the end, when he dies from it. Unless, the lyrics are saying that even after getting clean you’ll always want a fix.

It’s a graphic video, one that has a censored version (included above because the censor tag is a bit humorous) and an uncut version (below). I get that we don’t want to teach children how to use drug paraphernalia, but is cooking a spoon really more censor-worthy than someone tearing their flesh off?

Fresh off their European trek with Vader, Aborted has now announced a Japanese tour with System Divide, Devour the Martyr, and Empire. See below for all upcoming tour dates:

“Expurgation Euphoria” lyrics:
“As time passes by you inhale your last breath
With every shot you march one step closer to your death
Just a leprous mongrel digging his own grave
And paving his way through a pile of misery
Atrocity of man, symbol of decay
Intricate solution, sepsis sets in

With every shot and every high your end seeps in
The euphoria you seek marks your atrophy
Iodine reaps and marks your destiny
With an artificial high your skin bleaks,
Insert the needle, again and again

Expurgating abscess, hemoglobic decay
A rotten mess, you finally became
Expurgation euphoria, until the bitter end”
